Well done Turbine! 

 

I am currently playing WOW but I do have an active LOTRO subscription.  It's a great game and the dev team works very hard to give players new, free content regularly.  This is how it should be.  I'd be playing now but I'm just bored with it at the moment.  My next choice is WOW , which I'm having a great time in at the moment.  When that changes I suspect I wll go back to LOTRO, or try one of the 2009 releases.

Congrats to everyone at turbine!

As a LotRO player and a LotR fan, i really enjoy the game (this is also my first major MMORPG). One of the things that never ceases to amaze me about this game (besides the some of the storylines) is the detailthat is put into this game. Sometimes I just stop to look at the landscape.

As for gameplay, yes i admit the PvP could be better, but i personally am more interested in the storylines anyway. In my view, the game can only get better and better.

I played LotRO at launch and through the release of player housing.  Then I took a break for a while to check out stuff like Age of Conan, Warhammer, and a couple others.  I bought both Mines of Moria and WotLK, but it's proving to be LotRO that I'm actually playing out of the two games.

I'd forgotten just how gorgeous LotRO is.  The landscapes are lush and diverse, while at the same time blending together quite naturally.  Trees move in the breeze.  Grass ripples by moonlight.  There's just the right amount of bump mapping, reflections and atmospheric effects.  It really feels like Middle Earth.  (By the way, I can't understand the complaint about character models that some people make.  The character models are far better than WoW's and most other games.  Are you sure you're not confusing the models with the art direction for the clothing styles?  In that case, yes -- some of the clothing looks pretty ghastly.) 

The world also feels much more believable than other games.  Like I mentioned, the landscapes blend smoothly between one another.  Then you also have intelligent placement of mob types, wandering NPC, and a lot of other life.  More than you find with WoW, and certainly more than something like Warhammer.

I do understand how this game isn't everyone's cup of tea.  Yes, it lacks any real PvP.  To me that's a good thing, since the grief-happy kiddies play elsewhere and LotRO gets a more mature player base out of the deal.  But beyond that, the game is very much about exploring and enjoying one's time in Middle Earth.  It's not about rushing to the end game.  In that respect, it's perhaps the most sandbox-like out of the so-called "theme park" MMO's.  It's also extremely hard to solo the higher you get in level.

Anyway, congrats to Turbine for this win!  I hope -- and have little doubt -- that 2009 will prove to be every bit as successful.  There is so much more of Middle Earth yet to be revealed!

WoW does everything so well and PvP is a main point of an MMO?! What universe are you from?

Apparently a larger percentage disagrees with you than agrees,

 

And what universe are you from?  A much, much larger percentage agrees that WoW is a better game, somewhere in the neighbourhood of 11 million to 250k.  Online polls like this are pointless.  They just bring out people who are motivated to vote for this type of stuff anyway.  All anyone has to do is look at the NHL all star vote to know what a complete joke online polls are.  So congrats to the people who are LOTRO fans and crowing about it, thinking this means anything.  Once again, it just goes to show that sites like this aren't representative of the average mmo player.

All that aside, LOTRO is still a very good game with a good developer behind it that more often then not gives its players good value for their money.

BTW, I didn't see swg in the list at all.

Is a man not entitled to the herp of his derp?

Remember, I live in a world where juggalos and yugioh players are real things.

People most ABSOLUTELY play WoW for convenience. Myself included.

If you don't have a nice computer, WoW is more convenient than upgrading.

If you don't want the hassle of endless bugs, WoW is more convenient.

If you want a lexicon of knowledge about every single aspect of your game with a simple google search, wow is more convenient.

If you want to find a guild that caters to your individual preferences (roleplay, same time zone, casual, hardcore) WoW's healthy population makes it the most convenient.

Almost everything about WoW's success is about the convenience it brings. The debate is whether you think that's a good thing or a bad thing.

WoW is absolutely McDonald's. And I tell you what, I stop by McDonald's a lot more than the Russian Tea Room.

None of that has anything to do with convenience but just points that make a good mmorpg..........

 

You don't go for a lunch break off work and go "I need to play a mmorpg" no you're hungry and want to eat and Mc donalds is easy and there and doesn't taste that bad. It isn't a nice Thai meal or anything posh but it's fast food that tastes ok so you go there.

You play games to play a GOOD game and WoW is a GOOD game and thats why people play it. You don't go "well this game is shit but because it is easy I'll play it" no you spend your tome playing a game that is good, that you like.

That is why you the Mc Donalds and games argument is dumb

I agree.  I regard anyone who makes the WoW=MacDonald's argument as partially retarded and therefore not worth listening to.

Grats Turbine for another good win

 

as far as wy they won.  I know a few people here who dont play the game (but have played it at least once in the past) who, when faced with this option voted by weighing up whether game A was better than game B.  They did not just vote for the MMO that they currently play.  I have a feeling this is why Lotro edged out EvE and WoW as i know plenty of people who accept that it is a good MMO but do not actively play it.

MMO wish list:

-Changeable worlds
-Solid non level based game
-Sharks with lasers attached to their heads

Hehe looks like it just beat out WoW, however, this award is well deserved. While the game itself may not be balanced between PvE and PvP, the PvE and lore being much better, I think Turbine is a solid, good company and they made an absolutely beautiful world, one that I actually think looks better than AoC (I always thought the AoC trees were ugly and the character models looked like plastic action figures. While LotRO's character models need some improvement as well, they at least seem a bit more real, especially with the facial expressions. More like play-doh than plastic if you will!)

Good job LotRO.

The naturally nervous Skaven run and hide from the imaginary threat. He escapes. The Skaven regroup and bring out the Elf. Being very smart, the Elf has figured out what to do. When the Skaven get ready to shoot, the Elf, in order to scare them, yells, "Fire!"
