Okay, rant over.  Commence with the ever-cool WoW basing.  lol

It's a well-made game...Now.  Launch though it was bloody stupid the amount of bugs in it so I would beg to differ.

 

Either way, worst game to me is Neverwinter.  Only they blatantly ignore balancing issues between classes and game-breaking exploits.  People told them about the exploits, but they chose to do something only after someone makes public knowledge and everybody breaks it.

Actually, you're right about the launch.  WoW was a buggy mess for a brief time.  Think they even had to refund play time due to it being so bad.   Then again, back then ALL launches were terrible, particularly if it was a popular game out of the gate.  But I don't think anyone on this thread who mentioned WoW did so due to the launch.

One of the many Asian F2P I tried when I was taking a break from EQ2. Seriously people mentioning WoW, Neverwinter and SWTOR must have no idea what a real sub-par game looks like.

Darkfall.

Picking up something into my inventory was somehow a problem. I addressed this in chat. I was told I was a noob and just needed to learn to macro.

My inventory. Macro.

Uninstall.

It's the "Worst MMO you ever played?", not worst MMO of all time. The latter would be a fairly boring thread.

Er, I don't know anyone who has had issues with inventory in Darkfall. The only macro I can imagine would be if you were trying to switch between a sword and shield on your character, and a bow in your backpack with one click. Pretty bad reason to uninstall.

I would have to go with Mortal Online at launch. Not sure how it is now.

agree with this one too

Some of us just value different things.

 

A game that is trying new and exciting things, but is buggy or has "bad graphics"? That's far more entertaining and valuable to me than a big budget game that does nothing new and is built on broken and outdated design from 1996.

 

Even Mortal Online was more entertaining than WoW, because at least it took more than 5 minutes to figure out the entire game.

Worst was Masters of Orion III.  The game was so bad that the maker Quicksilver games closed all support and web site within 30 days of game release.

This was many years ago, so hard for me to reference anything specific, and everything I look up is D:UW. There seems to even be a D:UW thread on it, though: https://forums.darkfallonline.com/showthread.php?365052-It-s-Time-to-Change-the-Inventory-UI

There were severe issues all over the interface, and they were also widely reported at the time (ergo, in contrast to your statement, most people I knew complained about similar things). It wasn't just inventory; I had issues properly walking, talking to NPC's, etc. I think horrible interface that requires macros to function is a very good reason to uninstall. If I can't do anything in your game properly, it's a very, very poor and amateur game. Whether it's because I need to write macros or because I simply can't find the right function for half an hour. Which is pretty much the taste Darkfall left in my mouth.

You also missed the part about the community response, I see. If I ask: "Why am I having so many problems looting a corpse?" and I get called bad names, that's not a very nice community and smells of a game filled with fanboys and nobody else.

looks like we have a lot of people who are fortunate enough to have not played the really bad mmos.

gw2? wow? SWTOR? AoC? Darkfall?

While I dont like half of the above all of these are solid games. 

The worst game ever is dark and light HANDS DOWN  I'll say it again but with larger text so people notice it as they scroll through

The worst mmo ever is dark and light, period.

Unless your game got shutdown due to the sheer amount of bugs and the development studio canned due to a lawsuit, you dont belong in the same awfulness category that is dark and light.

Scarlet blade is a distant second.

By the way dark and light took bugs a step above the rest.  Fallling below the terrain?  Happened regularly. Crashing your client because you pressed keys on your hotbar too quickly? check.  Crashing the server because mobs respawned half the time but were invisible to the game logic causing 500+ rats in single location? check.

You did not need macros to navigate the Darkfall UI. It just wasn't the same GUI as WoW, so it actually had a learning curve.

 

And the inventory system in Unholy Wars is entirely different from the one in Darkfall, so a thread with people talking about the inventory from UW doesn't say anything about issues you had with Darkfall 1. Most threads hating on the Unholy Wars inventory system are asking for it to return to the Darkfall 1 style of doing things.

 

DF absolutely had UI issues, but maros were not needed for basic things. And pressing F to talk to an NPC isn't exactly "bad UI". And how did you not manage to walk properly? It's forward, hold shift for sprint.

I explained this in my post but to me a well polished game that gets me to play for a while but eventually just quit in disgust with no regrets or fond memories is worse than a bug infested pathetically bad game because it takes a lot more of my time with little more pay off, That is the category WoW is in for me.

 

But fine, if you're talking only technical aspects there are obviously worse MMOs out there.

I mean, that's great, but I am not sure why you are responding to me, really. I can't really go back 4 years and figure out what was going on. I only have D:UW data. All I know is that I had a very bad impression of the game's interface and the game's community, and I wasn't alone in that impression, nor will I be to this date.

If your UI has a learning curve, that's a very poor UI. The game is supposed to have a learning curve. The UI shouldn't, it should be as easy to understand as possible.

I don't know what macros were needed for. That's what I was told. Explain to me why your amazing community told me to write macros, and why I found forums where people were macroing everything, and talking about how being macroless was non-competitive? I've also heard the "Darkfall doesn't need macros" argument long ago then, and it was a semantic argument that many people disagreed with. Something was fuzzled there. You didn't physically need macros to use your inventory, but macros made it easier. Because you needed to open corpse, open inventory, click something, press a button, press another button...

Darkfall players wanting Darkfall inventory is not impressive. If they disliked the inventory, they wouldn't be playing it. Darkfall never had a lot of players. Poor UI was probably one of the reasons.

If I need to press F to do something and the game never tells me that I need to, that is bad UI design. I will have very little reason to assume that F is such a button without the game telling me it is. There's nothing wrong with right click and context menus.

Again, I can only reflect on what I recall. I was told to macro to properly manage inventory. I distinctly recall that experience. Maybe it was an older version of Darkfall, I don't know, but it was there, other people saw that it was there, forum posts were made about it being there, hyper-macroing was an issue, and nothing you are going to say here is going to make me change my mind on what I actually experienced.

I mostly stick to mainstream so I haven't played anything too terrible. Worst I'd have to say is TSW. Great graphics, amazing questing and worst gameplay ever created.

This. So many people site games that they personally disliked as 'the worst games ever" when there are games that are objectively terrible products. Games that launched riddled with gamebreaking bugs. Games that commercially flopped within a very short time frame. Games with no redeeming features and a nearly non-existent playerbase.

 

GW2, WoW, SWTOR, AoC, Darkfall - and yes - even Neverwinter are at least legitimate games with dedicated players. None of these are objectively bad.
