OP  12/19/06 11:48:17 AM#1

Always outspoken, Dan Fortier returns to MMORPG.com with his MMOWTF column. Today, he's handing out his awards for the best of the worst of 2006.

Welcome back to the 2006 MMOWTF Awards. Despite threats and plummeting approval ratings, I'm still your host for this weekly jaunt into forbidden territory. This week, we tally up all the votes that you placed and give out some punk cards to the losers in each category. I painstakingly counted each and every post/ballot and finished a mere couple of hours before the forums were the victim of a database failure. Each of the categories will show the game you voted for followed by my choice. Now without further ado, let's see how you voted:

Read the column here.

Cheers,
Jon Wood

No surpirse - The members have no love for SWG. When it first came out I had no qualms with it, as everyone else.

I had no idea it was loathed that much though..

Im surprised DARK AND LIGHT didnt get any more hate than it did.

The devs still owe me money for the month i paid without even getting into the game.
I pretty much gave up after the 6th letter i sent them..

I managed at least to cancel the subscription .

You might as well announce that SWG has received a special "Llifetime Dechievement" award and shelf it for these kinds of competitions.  With as much hate as it's generated, it wll continue to "win" for many more years.

I miss early SWG too.  /sniff

LOL well I posted this up on the official SWG forums and it lasted all of 3 minutes before being deleted.  Should have added in a forum Nazi category.

swg seduced me, got me into bed, told me she loved me, gave me the best night of my life and then stole my wallet, wrote "I am gay" in permanent marker on my forehead, had a sex change, and married my mother. Why'd that she/man whore have to marry my mother!?

2006 was a horrible year for new releases.  Nuff said.

Heh, Dan picked the same games for every category as I did except for most likely to be cancelled, which I chose Horizons. The man's got good taste

I am very surprised you didn't award SWG/$OE any awards yourself, but to each his/her own.  There are certainly many games deserving of many of the dishonors you offered (DAoC, DnL being two who stand out in my mind) but I truly doubt that no company has so persistently taken so many missteps, said so many wrong things, and just flat out pissed off so many as $OE has with SWG.  SWG has long been the poster child for "What Not to do With an MMO" and until $OE takes strong steps to appease its subscribers, it's going to continue to win many awards in these kinds of contests.

I dunno why I still play SWG - am an idiot I guess :D well, actually, all I do is craft and decorate my house....

What was that about Lord of the Rings? This game isn't released yet, why should that end up on your list?

I just love how you chewed on us SWG vets, blaming it on us for what SOE did to the game. I find your words insulting. Nice to see mmorpg.com truly showed its colors.

Thanks for insulting us and blaming us for their major mistake.

<sighs> I missed the voting.   Well, I have to agree, there's definetly a bunch of stinkers in the bunch.  The two points I would offer are these though.  DAoC is not and never was a bad game, the PvE was not inspiring, but it was always about the PVP which simply was the best that I've ever experienced.  That said, I agree that the game is dying hard and has been for some time.  Trials of Atlantis, while not nearly as bad as NGE in SWG, really did that game in and lost Mythic a lot of following.  The other point is that SWG was really a good game in it's old form.  The CU wasn't that bad, but the NGE was stupidity of epic proportions.  The part of that stupidity that makes it worse is that the game had fans, they made changes, the game lost fans, and they, for some strange reason, seem to want to KEEP their changes, LOL.  Good riddance SWG, the game deserves to die the death it's earned which really hurts those of us who would like to see a good stable and fun Sci-Fi MMO out there.

I guess I'm really happy that I never bothered with DnL, from the sound of it, I'd probably still be pissed off to this day.

2006 really has been a dark year for MMO gaming.  Hopefully some of the "lack of sucess" learnings will make their way around the industry and help mold futur offerings.  Hey, one can only hope for the best, right?

How did the vets/players get blamed, did I misread something?

I would think that Lucas Arts is probably the underlying "owner" for the changes anyhow, since they are the sole owner of the creative rights to anything Star Wars in nature.  Maybe my perceptions are off, but that's the way it seems to me.

Nope, it was SOE. It's their game. LEC only promotes it. Do you think Lucas films deals with defective Hasbro Star Wars toys? They don't. But they do spend some of their own advertising dollars to promote the products based on their IP.

Haha I'm really starting to enjoy this column now :) I've never played SWG but the other votes and picks are pretty much what I would choose. SWG must be really bad to beat most of those! Will we see an 'SWG award' for worst of the worst in the future?

Great job and I really enjoyed this.

It's good to see SWG & SOE getting all the awards they deserve. You came darn close with your picks to match my runner's-up, let's just hope that next year SWG isn't around to sweep all of the awards again, although SOE will always be a leader...

I'll start my own SWG... with Black Jack... and Hookers!!!

In fact, forget the SWG!!!!
