Nope...

I will not play a game with a cash shop ever again. A dev job should be to make the game better not make me pay so it sucks less.

Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

Are you blind (excluding the colour blind guy)?

It's a facepalm.

 

TSW is very far from the best MMO ever made.

I don't get it, seems like a serious fail on Teala's part...

Well, personally, I don't have my copy yet.

But I agree.. This is a harsh world for someone enjoying a game.  But, it's entertaining all the same.  =)

 

EDIT: As for Teala's pic, it's the classic Picard facepalm.

I've not played every MMO ever made. So, I can't make or support a claim that TSW is the best made to date.

I started with UO for a little less than a year. Then, I moved on to EQ and played til POP. I've tried WOW (til WotLK), LoTR(about 3 months), AoC (about 4 or 5 months), DCUO (still playing), EQ2 (1 week), Eve (still playing), STO (about 1 month), Champions (maybe 2 months), CoH (about 2 years), GW1 (maybe 3 months), Vendetta (for 2 or 3 months), AO (2 weeks)....you get the idea.

Most games didn't hold my attention long. And the games that I didn't play for long weren't "bad" games. For whatever reason, they simply didn't hold my attention. In most cases, it's been so long that I can't remember why I didn't stay.

TSW, to date, is the most interesting to me. I enjoy having to think. I look forward to playing for quite some time and trying things I've not done yet. It's been quite a while since I've been able to say, "I'm playing an MMO and having a blast again."

My brother played a lot of the games I've mentioned above, with me. He tried TSW during open beta with me and felt it was, "meh." It just wasn't the game he was waiting for.

So, while it's been a very long time since I've enjoyed myself in an MMO, I definitely wouldn't call it the best MMO out.

To each, their own...

It's not about fighting, it's about balance. It's not about enlightenment, it's about balance. It's not about balance.

I can't say that The Secret World is the best MMO ever made. The combat alone and some of the animations keep this title from reaching this point easily.

It's a good game not the best; not the worst, but trying to lable it as the best seems a little overzealous..

PM before you report at least or you could just block.

MMOs are games, games are considered art, and art is completely subjective. This MMO might be the best MMO ever made to you, but it likely isn't for a lot of others.

Ooooooh I see it now...Would have been easier just to post the pic of Picard's facepalm I think...That would have had a much more profound impact than the collage of pictures which was more confusing to me than anything.

Well, as a worker in the MMO-industry for years, I can´t really call '' any '' game for the best MMO ever made. Even so, there is actualy something you can do to rate different games and you do it by rating different aspects. You can´t, on the other hand, rate a game as the best ever made just because you enjoy it! We, old MMO-gamers, usually enjoy different games but times change and so do ur opinion. 

I can consider TSW, as one of the most interesting MMOs out there. Unique, great and I really enjoy playing it right now. However, to reach the place as the '' best MMO ever made '' or even near that, you need to make a revolution in the genre. One game that can be something like that in the near future GW2, It is only in BETA and there´s much more to see, but its position is much better than the TSW´s to be the '' best '', if there is even something like that.

Years ago, WoW became the revolution when it was first released and anyone saying that WoW didn´t reach that point, is actually '' wrong '' nd prob don´t know much about what happened to the MMO-industry when WoW was released. Don´t get me wrong though, I don´t say that WoW is the '' original '' MMO-style nor that it is the one that never copied others, but I am saying that Blizzard did the whole thing well back 8 years ago.

We just have to wait and see. None can really see into the future and everything can happen. However comparing TSW '' NOW '' with games that are released now / will be released soon, it is kinda hard to imagine it taking the first spot. Otherwise, it is a really great game and I wanna send a big '' CONGRATZ '' to funcorn for this great work :)

TSW is good as a single/multiplayer puzzle questy game. MMO, not so much. PvP is balls. Crafting is balls. No in game economy is balls. Combat is subjective. Storytelling is decent. Questing varies from good to great.

A lot of people that played Fallen Earth thought it was the bees knees. Really they just wanted a post-apoc game, and it was the only thing available so they sold themselves on it. I think TSW is a decent game, but if you planted the same mechanics and storytelling in a fantasy world people would be like...LoLz wow-clone with gimmicks.

How can anyone answer this? Isn't it personal taste?

 

And if the best one already exists, wouldn't everyone still be playing  "the best MMO ever made", rather than always looking for the next one?

No TSW is yet another average modern MMO in a long list of average modern MMO's. The combat and PvP is the worst i have ever seen in a MMO. There is to many difficulty spikes which gives a very frustrating gameplay. The crafting follows all modern MMO's in being extremly basic. The exploration is very limited because 80 % of all exploration objects you will get just by questing. Graphics are great and atmosphere is great and story some of the best i have seen in a MMO. Chat-system is the worst i have seen in 7-8 years. No auction system or LFG system at launch is just...game developers get a clue.

So TSW is all in all an average MMO.

Currently playing: AoC, RIFT, Champions Online, DDO, LORTO, STO and Tribes: Ascend
Have Played: TSW, SWG, AO, EVE, WOW, EQ, EQ2, SW:TOR, GW,CoH, DCUO, RotMG, WAR,

Yes! The only true MMO in 10yrs to top it off. Nothing else can touch it this year for being a MMO.

target monster, start hitting number keys

Yup, this is pretty much standard mmo.  Maybe 1% of the game is original (investigation)

Best MMO it is not, heck it's probaly not even going to be the best mmo this year.

No

I like it. I find the pve the most enjoyable I've played, but having said that I'm not a hardcore pveer I hate raid grinding, so perhaps I'm not the best judge.

But I don't see it as a long term game I can play non stop for years though, for that a game has to be a sandbox like eve or a themepark with a robust pvp system like daoc to keep my interest long term.

It's fun while "leveling" though and the pvp is somewhat better than typical themepark pvp. I also like how its not a heavy gear progression based game, much like gw2, I always found EQ / diablo / wow skinner box mechanics distasteful.

My first beta weekend I went pistols and I did not like the game.

 

My second beta weekend I went swords and I started to really like the game.

 

Now that it has launched and I finished Kindsmouth, I see it as an average single-player MMO much like SWTOR.  The crafting and PvP are nothing special, the animations and character customization is weak at best (yes I know they will be addressing this soon).  The 500+ skill stuff is really just marketing speak since many of the skills in the same area are almost identical based on descriptions.  In the sword tree I can show you 7 different single target attacks that do the exact same amount of damage and build one resource.  There are near identical skills to this in most other trees as well. 

 

I do find the questing to be unique and the environment is cool and I think that is what has grabbed most peoples attention.  I think in another two or three months you will see a lot less talk about this game.  I'm not saying the game will die, I'm just saying the newness will be wearing off in another month or two for most people just like it did in TOR.
