I doubt it...  Perhaps for a selective young crowd it may have been.  I hated it.  Community was terrible...

Everquest 1 was IMHO (1999-2004).  With the graphics never evolving they lost the ability to have been so much more,

It is likely we'll never see s subscription based MMORPG ever reach the level of popularity that WOW did.

Sure, there's larger games out there, but nothing will likely rival the commercial success that Blizzard achieved with WOW, and even Blizzard will likely find it challenging to surpass its success.

Is it the best MMORPG ever?  Depends on your preferences I suppose, me I think EVE holds that title, but it certainly is one of the giants of the genre and you can't really deny it's a great MMO, (if you are being honest with yourself) even if you don't personally care for it.

One thing I was hoping with this thread was to talk about what really draws us into our favorite mmos. I think for many it is more then just the game mechanics, hence my story. I would love to hear if anyone else has similar feelings about their favorite mmo.  It is hard to believe players only log into an mmo day after day for years to play a game and grind out gear and gold only. For many there must be a deeper reason, the game must evoke something more then the sum of it's parts. Mmos are different then casual console games. The passion people use when supporting or refuting a game must speak to a deeper connection then just the game play. However, I could be wrong and I may be the only player who gets lost in a game world like Azeroth for the artist achievement and the undefinable feeling of familiarity.

EVE is a spectacular achievement. I played it for a few weeks it never resinated with me but I saw it's genius. Definitely a game I do not play but would recommend.

Its not my game and i realy don't like it what do you think ill vote when they ask me is WoW the best game:P

Its a matter of taste millions dont play wow and hate it they prolly also wont vote wow.

If you look at numbers and years its on top sure then it prolly go into books as best P2P MMO ever make this as best game?... NO

If something popular and sold most will not say is best.

Or is bieber, gaga or beyoncé the best singers ever?

Not in my book i say David Bowie or Pink Floyd as group but thats my taste millions will disagree and prolly name some other singer or group as best ever.

My 2 cents on the matter.

Most profitable . yes. Best ever... define best. If you ask me I would say wow sucks but what do I know, I play sandboxes and not theme parks and hate holding hands.

That's pretty subjective

 

Could be for some but not for other's

That is really the point to my original post. Telling my story and unique experience with WOW. Not just as a game but a feeling WOW gave me. Anyone who thinks my thread was a serious attempt at proving WOW is the best mmo ever for everyone kind of missed the point of my story and experience. The feeling I describe in my original post people may have had with other mmos. I bet a lot of people have felt the same way about EQ and SWG. I actually had hope this thread would be less about proving WOW was the best but was a format for others to tell why they felt there favorite mmo was best ever.

Vanilla WoW gave me a lot of good times and some real life nightmare's. It showed me that I'm susceptible to video game addiction. I almost lost my marriage over it, put things in perspective.

if SWG hadnt been destroyed by SOE, then i probably never would have played WoW, but SWG was never that huge of a game, it was very much a niche game much as Eve is, and SW;TOR is likely to be, or any game these days tbh, i don't see any game really having the mass appeal of WoW, as it used to be, because way back then, there just wasnt that much to choose from, these days there are a huge amount of games to choose from and so players are more 'split' between them, eventually WoW will fade down to the same level of other MMO's not because its failing as such, its just that players now have so many games to choose from that there will always be something 'new' which is often a fair replacement for 'exciting' at least for a while

I will just point out, I noticed that you measure game value also by its popularity, and I would say this is wrong approach. Unhealthy food is also popular, millions of people eat it and you know there is nothing good about it. I would say WOW is like a KFC of gaming... And the hate isn't always out of jealousy.

Everything else you wrote is just personal tastes, feelings and nostalgia. I can go in Azeroth now and I wouldn't feel s*it, so what you wrote doesn't really bring anything new or useful for me or for anyone on the forum.

If you would want to go more objectively about that, picking best mmo ever is like saying bananas are better than oranges... some people like bananas, some oranges, the genre is to diverse to do any comparisions.

Too bold a statement. Nobody knows what the state of MMO and computertech will be in 10 years time. It's a very good MMO, still is although I'm totally bored with it, but the best ever... A bit of a childish remark.

It's incredibly well made and well managed for an MMO, I think that is a big part of it.

The quests that almost make you feel you're not doing the same thing over and over. The way it guides you from zone to zone, keeping the experience fresh. The world itself is designed fabulously, no space is wasted, no part of it is boring.

While my favourite MMORPG is still pre-cu Star Wars Galaxies because of it's depth, in terms of overall design quality it never held a candle to WoW.

 You could not be more wrong. I do not judge a game by it's popularity. When you read my original post the last paragraph talks about why WOW is "The Best" it is a totally personnel reason. The two sentences you quote are clearly a bit sarcastic. What I was pointing out was that WOW transcended the typical definition of a game it grew to pop culture status and that that actually bothered a lot of us old school mmo players.

I am surprised a few missed the point of my post. I was not trying  to sell this on you or convince anyone WOW had to be the best mmo ever for you. I was obviously not trying to be objective. You are correct that I was talking about personal tastes and nostalgia. You assume I was trying to sell WOW to people. Nope, I was trying to get people to talk about wow and what they feel is their "best" mmo by using a title that might get people to read. Sorry I did not make that clearer in my post. I just figured it was obvious. It does not matter to me that no one else feels WOW is the best. This was not a pole it was a account of my realization WOW was a bit more then a game to me.

 Did you read my original post or just the title to the thread. Read my original post not just the title and you may feel a bit differently about why I started the thread. I used the term "best ever" in connection to this feeling I had that transcended WOW being just a game. Do I think everyone should feel the same? No, I had hoped others could relate to my experience and post if they have had a similar connection to WOW or their "best ever" mmo. I am not trying to sell you on the idea the WOW should be your "best ever"

As to the future yea, it will be awesome to see how mmos develop. I would bet in a total different direction then any of us can predict.

 It is fun to speculate as to what form the "new" will take. I hope Wildstar can offer a bit of the new. However I do not see much on the horizon so at least for awhile longer WOW will be my "Best Ever". I be honest pre-nge SWG was possibly the "best ever" :)

I think Vanilla/TBC WoW could have attempted to claim that title. But other MMO's could have competed for that one in different areas (UO, EQ1, DaoC, SWG). Problem is, all these games are very different and comparing them isn't quite fair. I believe WoW was the best in its style of game, and DaoC was the best in its style of game.

I believe currently, the best MMO on the market is EVE no matter how you slice it.

Personal preference really shouldn't factor in. Someone out there likes Mortal Online but it's still a poor product and that's apparent to anyone.

Favorite MMO: Vanilla WoW
Currently playing: GW2, EVE
Excited for: Wildstar, maybe?

I myself like you don't care for the way the gameplay and such has changed so i haven't played it as much as i used, i am somewhat in the middle of you and people who care only for gameplay...i used to be one of the people in BC who everybody knew as i sat outside SW and in goldshire and just dueled 24/7, i wasn't anywhere near the best but i was good enough to have around a 2 to 1 win/loss duel ratio, and knowing everyone gave the game itself a sense of community knowing back then i could log in after school and see all my friends (and enemies) sitting on the fence. i completely understand what you're talking about but for me being somewhere in the middle...today's horrible community along with gameplay changes just outweighed that feeling for me and many of my old friends, whom of which many now are playing FF14 atm...so i have to disagree that it is the best mmo ever, if you were to ask if it WAS the best mmo id agree 100%

 I have to disagree with you on your narrow categorization that a selective group of  the young crowd would think WOW was good.  I am 54 years old and play in a guild that has a number of players over 60 and most in my guild are over 30. I find over all the WOW community is pretty good and as far as all the nonsense that goes on with a huge player base that has a lot of immature players, I simply ignore it, not an issue in my day to day in game socializing and game play.

I find Lotro does a much better job of maintaining that MMO feeling than WoW does these days. So it's a no from me. Being the best is all relative to taste anyway. Some people like merlot, some people shiraz.
