Kida also play GW2. I have no idea what are you trying to imply here. You think GW2 is targeted towards adult audience only?

Ok, there is nothing wrong with pirate101 winning in this poll. However, please actually pkay gw2 first before saying it just tried to be like wow. Please.

 

I have a level 80 ranger, I stopped when I hit the gear grind WoW is famous for. Good enough?

Not really, as there is no gear grind (except for the 2 ascended peaces... But i got those at lvl 55 engi), atleast our combat isnt a dragonquest/ final fantasy knockoff.

Epic fail of a poll!

If anything, it's an epic success of a poll.  We asked folks to vote, and P101's players came out to represent their game more than anyone else did. They deserve a congrats for having such a passionate fan-base.  

Indeed and well-said, Bill.

 

But you know how it goes, any time the game chosen isn't some individual's personal favorite, it's regarded as a great travesty and a crime against humanity.

 

People will get over it.

 

Or not.

 

Either way, congrats to the winners!

I hope everyone can now see and wake up that graphics don't and will never do a game.  Good job Pirate101 !!   Most anticipated , TESO is a no brainer , everyone's still brain washed on how amazing Skyrim was , I'd hold the dial on TESO , just my way on seeing and feeling things. Star Citizen is simply mind blowing and deserves all the attention it can get. As far as GW2 goes , I won't comment on it.  And LoL is a pretty nice choice for a hybrid MMO.   Overall , I'm happy with this years selections, for a change. :)

Grats Pirate101 on GOTY, it wasn't my choice, but it would've been my second choice.  I do love me some Pirate101, and so do kids (we're all kids at heart right?). 

I had no doubts that TESO was going to win most anticipated.  Among all my friends I've made over the decades of playing online, the vast majority say that they will probably be moving to it at least for awhile, and I'm one of them.  I might actually find something better than WoW or Rift O_o

Star Citizen is one of the "darkhorse" titles I've been looking into since it was announced.  I'm a sim junkie and a space junkie....so it might be just for me :D

Another one I had no doubts about, LoL has such a large playerbase, like 1% of thier players could vote to win it probably, jk lol.  I drop in to get my Yorick fix every once in awhile :)

Pirates beat out WOW, LOTRO, EQ2, SWTOR, Planetside 2, STO, Vanguard, GW2 and even the MMORPG.com forums.  LOL

I am guessing that the people who voted for TESO most likely are the people who actually took the time to read more about the game, often from original source. Obviously when just reading what forum posters have to say about the game does make people think TESO will be a bad game. Thruth is both sides don't know untill they actually are able to play the game though I can defenitly understand it got the vote pure what we already know. I havn't seen a good constructive topic "bashing" TESO with proper info as most of the "bash" topic are just ramblings with no true info in it. The most populair comments are often " it's just like WOW" which continue's to just tell "Hey I have a very limited playstyle and the only way I am able to play is how I have played WOW"

As for the results: Yes I am suprised, but congrats to the winners never the less.

One thing I find funny is that this site has covered Pirates101 allot, yet now suddenly people want to play it because it has won? Perhaps it has great/good feature's, but it aint my visual style of game.

Me finding it hilarious that Pirates 101 took GOTY has nothing to do with being or not being a fan of GW2.  I bought GW2 on day 1 I have a level 8 character I am far FAR from a "fanboi" of this game. 

I can't figure out if the joke is on GW2 for losing to a game like Pirates 101 or on MMORPG for having to list a game like Pirates 101 as THEIR players choice Game of the Year.

Most Anticipated: Elder Scrolls Online
"Congrats to Zenimax Online Studios. Now you'd better not let us down when the game launches at the end of 2013!"

No pressure here! lol

Pirate101 did surprise me! Gratz to KingsIlse :)

And gratz to all the other winners :)

Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

You know gw2 doesn't have to win everything. RPS picked farcry3 as goty with ps2 top ranked mmo and tsw 2nd ranked mmo, gw2 made the list though.

I am glad GW2 didn't win. It is the single most unfun MMO I have played. My GoTY would be TSW. It may be too different for some but those investigation missions are epic. Once I get to the gear grid of a end game I will be done this the game though.

 

Of Couse this is just my opinon

You're full of it. Not saying GW2 is a bad game. Just compare it to GW1, then play WoW and tell me that's not the direction they were going. They as much admitted it themselves when development began.

A few hardcore players liking the game so much that they don't consider it a grind, versus the mechanic lending itself to players repeatedly running the same dungeons over and over again to GRIND tokens to buy gear are two different things.

When there's a Dragonquest and/or Final Fantasy (tactics) MMO that is a better game than Pirates, I think you'll have a point.

Asking you to be objective is probably a waste of time. Sorry "your" game lost.

Who nominated Pirate 101? Did players nominate the games or did MMORPG.com staff pick them?

Logic, reason and fact do not supersede human nature. Ignorance reigns without justice.

Did the devs at Pirate 101 post something asking their fans to vote for this?  

When faced with strife or discontent, the true nature of a man is brought forth. It is then when we see the character of the individual. It is then we are able to tell if he is mature enough to grin and bare it, or subject his fellow man to his complaints and woes.

This absolutely ridiculous, Pirate101 wins game of the year? I’m not convince, how much did KingsIsle pay to get that?

That company is a joke, they don’t respect other cultures and they don’t care about their players.  

Pirate101 doesn’t even close to the quality of Guild Wars 2.

Disregarding the last comment you made, this is a poll by the players.  The community of that game got together and all voted on the game they enjoyed playing.

It's my assumption that there was a tweet or something by the company asking for them to vote as it seems an impossible choice when against mainstream MMOs.

That is not to say that games that aren't mainstream can't be GotY material, but simply it's almost impossible for a fan vote to do such if the company didn't step in in some way and ask their fans to vote.

Edit:  It may also be a case that people saw their game wasn't going to win, but didn't want GW2 to win either.  Naturally that would mean voting the next up in bulk just for the laugh.  This is something that my friends from WoW (and a few from GW1) did and they tried to talk others into doing so as well as a joke.

This is pretty rude, how about you actually try out Wizard101, or Pirate101 before calling the company a joke. You obviously know nothing about KI since they do respect other cultures.. they have wizard101 in china and other countries currently. They do care about the players and ask us our opinions on things they add to the game.

Guild Wars 1 was released in 2005 and had 7 years to create GW2.

Wizard101 was released in 2008 and had 4 years to create P101.

GW had almost x2 more time to "create GW2" than Kingsisle had to "create P101".

The bottom line is, our community obviously cared about this awards more than GW2. Sorry! :)

It's called giving free stuff if you vote for our game. Eh.

Nature without Technology is little more than animals running about.
