He who fights and runs away... misses out on the loot
OP 8/03/12 11:51:51 AM#1
I know there are a 1,052 of these threads, but with the TSW rankings, I thought I would resurrect this topic. Put your top MMOs from your experrience. Not meant as a flame thread. Just curious to see what everryone thinks. Here goes, my list.
Best Starter Area: Conan
Best Atmospherre: TSW (I think they did a pretty good job)
Best Crafting: Vanguard
Best Cut Throat: Darkfall
Best PvP: Conan
Most innovative: UO (really has to be a relatively early MMO IMO.)
Best Diplomacy/guild/peristent... (Not sure how to charicterize it): Shadowbane
Biggest Dissapointment: SWTOR (I actually like the game, but it could have been so much more), Earthrise, Honerable mention.
Some under appreciated games: WAR, CONAN
Best longevity: LOTRO. Seems to have good story, combined with new content.
Best FTP (or Fremmium) DDO, LOTRO Honorable Mention
Looking forward to: GW2, Elder Scroll if done right,
They are coming for you!

Best FTP (or Fremmium) Maybe DDO and LOTRO but I don't do F2P MMORPGs

Best Starter Area: WoW or GW2. Conan has only one starter area, it gets old very quick, no matter how polished it is.
Best Atmospherre: That's a hard one... can't answer, because I'd have like 10 games which each achieved a great atmosphere in their respective setting.
Best Crafting: UO. Crafting was entirely part of the character. Good crafting doesn't mean utterly complicated crafting for me, I actually found EQ2 or SWG like crafting very tedious and boring.
Best character controls and "hand to keyboard to screen to eye" coordination: WoW.
Best Cut Throat: UO pre-trammel.
Best PvP: GW2.
Most innovative: UO. Started it all, 'nuff said.
Best Diplomacy/guild/peristent... (Not sure how to charicterize it): UO.
Biggest Dissapointment: Darkfall, Mortal Online... failed sandbox is bad, very bad.
Some under appreciated games: Anarchy Online,
Best longevity: UO (17 years...). EQ. AC1. Even if I don't play them right now, those games are still here. Honorable mention for WoW (millions of players for 7+ years).
Best FTP (or Fremmium): GW2... yeah, I know, it's B2P, but compared to the restrictions games like LOTRO impose, it wins hands down even with the purchase price.
Looking forward to: GW2, maybe Archeage but there's way to little info about it yet, and way too many promises without proof, for me to get "hyped" about it.
