None of the above.

Diablo 3 is a lobby game, not an mmo despite what mmorpg.com says.

Put a fork in FFXIV because it is done.  No amount of patching will save it.

TERA and TSW will flop and be ghost towns within 6 months of release.

GW2 might be able to sustain a decent population because it's starting out f2p.  Right now it's too over hyped though, how can a game live up to what people have made it out in their minds to be.

I've never even heard of Firefall until right now.

2013 please.

For me it's :

B2P -

Guild Wars 2

Torchlight 2

F2P -

Firefall

Path of Exile

 

There's some other game in the making that look really nice, but I have no idea when they are coming out.

Otherwise I'll be following Mist of Pandaria, I'm really curious if it will be as bad as cataclysm or actually succesful.

Above all else, Guild Wars 2.

Also looking forward to Diablo 3 but I'm in the beta and let me tell you, it's nothing special. It'll be a fun romp but it'll grow rather boring within a few weeks, after you beat Normal mode.

I'm a long time Funcom fan (who mostly skipped AoC) so I'm looking forward to The Secret World. Under new leadership and headed by the guy who was the lead on their two adventure games 'The Longest Journey' and 'Dreamfall' which are widely considered in the top 10 best adventure games ever.. it could be spectacular.

I'll check out TERA but I don't know if I'll buy it. From what I understand the game's got a heavily tacked on questing system that is even more boring than usual. As good as the combat might be if it's all about killing ten rats for some copper pennies I will avoid it like the plague. After GW2 hits, and if it's a great success, an MMOG based on quests will become rather antiquated.

Well, to be fair, the question asked what game is your # 1 pick, not MMO, but that's just semantics. I would argue that Diablo 3 is in a pretty similar market, though. After all, people are pretty accepting of Guild Wars 1 being on the list. Was that not a lobby game? Also, Diablo 3 has more in common with MMOs than ever before, like organized PvP, an auction house and the game even has to be connected to thier servers to play. I think if games like PlanetSide 2 and Firefall can be compared to GW2, TSW, TERA, etc, then so can D3.

I mentiioned that it, along with Archeage, doesn't seem like a 2012 release. I was trying to stick to the games that were likely, if not definitely, coming out this year.

ah.. in that case, my choice goes to GW2. definitely going to be getting my hands on a copy once it comes out. :]

I beta tested Firefall, didnt think it was that great.. I actually quit going to the weekly beta test events lol. Hopefully when it is "finished" it will be better.

Not agreed that Diablo 3 should be in a pool. Clearly not an mmo game even more not an mmorpg game :/

 

Anyway since ArcheAge won't be releasing in west this year - (and that would be my favourite) - I am voting for GW2.

That's the argument that I gave a few posts up to someone else that felt that way about Diablo. If you already read it, sorry for the redunacy. However, I would still be interested in hearing your reasoning.

Really is a tossup for me between TSW and GW2.

1. For god's sake mmo gamers, enough with the analogies. They're unnecessary and your comparisons are terrible, dissimilar, and illogical.

2. To posters feeling the need to state how f2p really isn't f2p: Players understand the concept. You aren't privy to some secret the rest are missing. You're embarrassing yourself.

3. Yes, Cpt. Obvious, we're not industry experts. Now run along and let the big people use the forums for their purpose.

That's the argument that I gave a few posts up to someone else that felt that way about Diablo. If you already read it, sorry for the redunacy. However, I would still be interested in hearing your reasoning.

Reasoning is as follows.

First of all - I don't cosider GW1 as mmorpg as well. Heck even Arena.net does not - they stated it is separate "genre" CORPG.

As for other things. If you conisder D3 to be mmo - then imho you would have to consider BattleField 3 and Call of Duty and similar as mmo , you would have to conisder many /most of rts games as mmo like starcraft 2. 

Diablo 3 is just ordinary mutliplayer , co-op lobby game. I am amazed that someone may even consider it as mmo. 

But well I guess it is just language changing and I am sure if that will go further ( I mean naming broeader nad broader category of games as mmo / mmorpg) then language will just come out with separate naming for games that undisputably are mmorpg's (that have peristant world, are not lobby & instance based).  Maybe it will be massive virtual world games or something similar - well we'll have to wait to find out I guess.

Of couse it is just my opinion and you're free to disagree.

Well, I never explicitly stated that it was an MMO, but that it shares an audience, to an extent. Also, I never said that GW1 was an MMO either; I just said that people didn't gripe about it being on the game list, as people have for Diablo 3. I think what separates D3 from games like BF3, etc are things like the aution house, and the coop/pvp dynamics that are more akin to that of an actual MMO. Persistance is just one of the factors differenciates games. Many refer to PlanetSide 2 as an MMO, but the play mechanics are very different from game like WoW. When it comes down to it, no, Diablo 3 is not an MMO, however I felt that it shared enough features and audience to justify its place on the list. That's my take on it.

The older I get the more I miss the days when gaming was just for nerds. D3 is in no way an MMO. Its a dungeon crawler. Evidently some people dont understand what that means though.  Planetside 2 however is set to be an MMOFPS.

What genra a game should be called is really pointless these days anyway. As far as it being on the MMORPG.com list, this site hasnt been about just MMORPG's for a while now. WIthin the next year or two it wouldnt suprise me if its just a general gaming forum. Not a bad thing either since peoples abilities to properly classify a game is a thing of the past as well.

Well, the thing about terminology, and language in general, is that it changes... especially in an evoloving medium like gaming. That line has been blurred for some time now. I don't think the burden of defining it falls onto one person. You're entitled to your definition, certainly. But to say others are unable to properly classify a game based on esoteric semantics is a bit brazen. Hell, the term 'album' has referred to records, eight-tracks, tapes, CDs, and digital media. Also, CDs and tapes have been called records. The words 'awesome' and 'epic' are entirely accepted when used in mundane instances. You probably shouldn't get too attached to stringent, personal definitions. I'm not sure how old you really are, but your opinions concerning this matter seem pretty analogous to the archetypal senior citizen hearkening back to the "good ol' days" when times were simpler, times that were devoid of scary rap music and technology.

1. Guild Wars 2 2. TERA Online 3. Diablo 3

For 2013 (hopefully release in the States)

1. Archeage 2. Blade & Soul 3. Phantasy Star Online 2

We shall see!

Well, there are few out there who are hoping (as we, the gamers are) to be new breed of mmos. You have, Guild Wars 2, The Secret World, Archage, PlanetSide2, Wildstare (looking interesting). Maybe they want all come out this year, but if just one of them come out and fulfill expectations, it would be great.

Tough choice between TERA and FFXIV 2.0, but I ultimately voted for TERA.

Primarily because TERA is new, and looks like something different and interesting, whereas I've played FFXIV, and while I would really like for the game to be good (considering XI was one of my favorite MMOs) I'm skeptical whether or not SE can make the game enjoyable.

I honestly have no idea what games to look forward to this year- I like that TSW will have a world different than the standard fantasy offerings we've had as well as having three factions but that's all I really know about it. I like GW2 because of the dynamic events rather than standard quest hub hopping as well as the character level changes based on zone so that I can play with friends regardless of how much time I've put into the game.

 

All of the info I've seen on these and other games look as though the leveling goes very quickly and have today's solo-ability intact. At least for MMOs I'm a 100% co-op player as opposed to competitive so I don't see any games that really have my playstyle in mind for endgame. Looks like I get to choose between EQ1, LoTRO, and (hopefully) Vanguard if it goes freemium/F2P.

GW2 here (Obviously if you check post history) but if you had put ArcheAge aswell (hope it comes out 2012, just hoping) then it would be a tough choice since I'm planning on playing both of them

Where is the "still waiting for something different from the hamster wheel games" option?
