Themepark hate club unite!  Tell everyone how they are wrong to enjoy this game!

They can enjoy the game as much as they like but GW 2, and ThemeParks in general, are like McDonalds. Garbage and not a proper food (mmo).

I'm loving the angst these awards are causing.  Remember a week or so ago when you and yours panning the Time award and said that it didn't matter because it wasn't a real gaming site.  Now that a real gaming site has presented the award it all comes down to "nuh uh - neener neener".

It's a damn awesome game whether you like it or not.

I am sure it is an awesome game (for some) but it is a crappy MMORPG. And massively is wrong saying that it is.

 

Can you please tell us how a proper MMORPG should be in your opinion?

One based on virtual, persistant world. No instances, no quest hubs and level bracketted zones. A world which is like a real world, i.e. not constructed but rather evolved organically.

 

Does such fantasy MMO exist?

None exsists because it is too hard to to program for. It would be like the Designers/programmers playing God. In science, for example, look how many computers it is takeing to find intelligent life in the planet and that is a one question problem. A world like that would need computational power that does not exsist currently even in our most advanced super-computers.

 

They think some of the up and coming Sandboxes are like that but they will have huge limits on what you can and can't do and the life certainly will not be organic - more static than anything.

The game may be boring as hell after a few weeks, at least it was to me, but you know most of those awards are BS anyway don't you.  The game of the year to me is the game I enjoyed the most that year, and that aint GW2.  IT wasn't bad, but not great either.

Hey the game may not appeal to me but im a gamer and i know a quality product when i see one :)  
And you're still being nice Foo.  Dammit! *grumbles back off to work*
Yeah what's up with that?  Amidst all the heat this thread is generating, his posts were like an ice cube down my shirt!

 

I cannot BELIEVE a combat centric, rng cash shop, grindfest made goty omgwtf!!!! There will be no living with those awful fanboys now!

 

Better? ;)

 Eir's apparently easier to satisfy than I am... you didn't mention "WoW-clone" however so I can't give this high ratings.

Much better.  I'm actually easy to please as well.  Great job Foo!

I think a mind wipe so people could play an mmo like it was their first time again, would be easier to build than a new mmo people here would actually like. - DamonVile

Tell me more about the high quality fantasy sandbox you play.

Yea I have seen this reference to fast food several times, but have yet to hear about the high quality sandbox games.

GW2 deserves mmo of the year because in its un-nerfed state this was the best game released in years, however at the rate anet is nerfing the fun out of the game combined with the simple and repetitive direction they have chosen to pursue with the added content the game could be empty and dead by december 2013..

Playing GW2..

The story of GW2.  This game is amazing, and I love how many things they are trying to do different... A week later.  This game is boring as shit, and nothing changed about the formula it's just presented in a different way.

How are they nerfing it? You mean the adjustments to the Ranger class? That was done because of bot exploitation and also because, according to A.Net, the data said these skills needed it (I am not saying I agree at all).

 

Just because you don't like a balance, doesn't mean it is a nerf. A nerf means you can't play a profession at all any more - e.g. the Saboteurs from Rift after the first 2 week adjustment - you could not use that build any more.

I don't think he means class nerfs...probably loot nerfs if I had to guess.

Enter a whole new realm of challenge and adventure.

Those are the games that would be successful, if only someone would write them.

For every large, complex problem, there is a simple, clear solution that also happens to be absolutely wrong.

No, I am just pointing out that while the magazine awarded this, it also considered it the runner-up for biggest dissapointment. 

Swtor are would be there if the name wasnt like what voldemort is to wizards as swtor is to mmo journalists. (Might get the populace mad...)

Obviously not. They cost to much to make, the population is small, and sandboxes are full of hardcore players (not saying sandboxes are bad, just not practical)

SWTOR won LAST year - so it wasn't in the running.

Twas a joke. 

 

Edit: and it won game of the year, so it could have been biggest disspointment this year. Of course, who would want to give a game  biggest disspointment when it was goty just last year? That is what I meant by what I said.

They dserve the award. The sandbox folk are out again i see. They sound like people asking folks to vote for Santa Clause for President. The "sandbox" game is a myth and only exists successfully in one form, Eve. 99.5 percent of all games are "theme park" in that we pay people to make challenges and environments to explore.  Any one can make a game and have people attack one another, there's no real effort in game design there. A true designer, like a good dungeon master, can make fun challenges.

Themepark hate club unite!  Tell everyone how they are wrong to enjoy this game!

Is this a troll post?

I mean

Is the purpose of this thread to share the information that GW was selected to be the best MMO of 2012?

Or

Is the purpose of this thread to start a forum battle as the last two sentences indicate?

Not really sure, but I incline to believe the latter.  Just another day at the forum I guess.

Evilastro hmm...

It was meant to portray "i told you so" to the people who often go on gw2 forums and bash the game.

Biggest Disappointment of 2012: City of Heroes' sunset (Runner-up: Guild Wars 2)

 

From Jef, who is a self confessed sandbox fan. Oh, and someone who was upset they still dont have guesting.

Also the guy said this:

"SOE's portfolio is second to none, and it's one of the few big studios that isn't afraid to experiment with non-combat features and virtual world bells and whistles. EverQuest, EverQuest II, Vanguard, DC Universe Online, PlanetSide 2, Clone Wars Adventures, and Free Realms all are high-quality games that speak to a wide cross-section of gamers, and SOE's willingness to scrap initial EverQuest Next plans in favor of a sandbox reboot was the best piece of news I heard all year."

 

So GW2 was a disappointment, but SoE has a great portfolio, and Free Realms and Clone Adventures are high quality games. What a laugh.

 

Free Realms probably has more players than GW2 but that's not what this thread is about.

 

GW2 does indeed deserve GotY and it's a great game in it's own right.  I was supposed to reply to a thread about how I felt about the game after some time so I'll package it up here.  It's the best iteration of what a themepark can be.  It has the same aspects and even has the same canned feeling.  What it also brings however are functions to make it less of a predictable experience and you can get "lost" in the gameplay.
