OP  1/05/11 10:21:50 AM#1

The month of December has come and gone, taking 2010 with it. Some say good riddance, some look back fondly, but no matter how you slice it, that puppy’s behind us and we’re all moving forward to 2011. For the team here at, we’ve just got one tiny loose thread to tie up before we officially start the new year: We have to announce the winners of the 2010 Reader’s Choice Awards! Today we feature the winner of the Most Innovative MMO. Check it out!

When it came to looking at the game that made the most strides forward in 2010 in terms of pushing the envelope and doing something new, there was actually quite a bit to talk about. Surprisingly, each of these nominees included their changes via an expansion.

Read on to find out who takes home the 2010 Awards: Most Innovative MMO.

Incarna and Incursion (FINALLY!) will make this year another close one for Eve. WIll we see D514 this year? Only one can hope.

This is not a game.

/inb4 Zorn: waawaa phasing so innovate!

Well though this year wasnt the most innovative at all, mostly fleshing out whats allready been done, so I dont think EvEs achievement is to hold too high. But gratz for another year roaming in awards.

Yes, Eve is interesting. The problem I've always had is that its a space game with no real avatar. Cool, but not for me.


Hopefully they can manage the WoD as well. I just hope the character creation and customization are better. AND that we finally have a game with proper housing, instead of housing thats horribly neglected or so bad it might as well not exist at all (I'm looking at you LOTRO).

"While CCP, the company behind EVE Online, continues to push the boundaries of MMO technology with its single server game, their hardware isn’t what impressed MMO fans this year, rather it was the addition in the Tyrannis expansion of planetary interaction, expanding the scope of the game by allowing space-based players to interact with the planets that up until now have simply been window dressing to the space only game."

Ok, I don't play Eve, so maybe I'm missing something here. But according to the article, it is innovative because it finally, after seven years, is allowing players to interact with the environment?!?

I agree that nothing this year stood out in the way of innovation, but something tells me that "most innovative" was a misnomer this year.

I want a mmorpg where people have gone through misery, have gone through school stuff and actually have had sex even. -sagil

Its innovative because it continue to constanly remake the game, adding totally new mechanics, not just a new zone to run quests in. Wormholes were 1 recent innovation, and Plantetary were another, something totally different from other parts of the game. Not to mention reworking soveriegnty. These are substantial changes that you dont see happening in other games.


I would actually add Conan as innovative in that they added a whole bunch of features totally different form the rest of the game. Didnt make the game any more fun, but it was innovative.

No surprise there. I voted for EVE myself. The only mmo i played for 6 years. I cancelled my account in that was a long run. I just don't have the amount of time that EVE demands. I have gone very casual over the years.

Who could have thought that WOW could bring super power like USA to its knees?

Im picking on WoW btw because its the beast that made all of this possible

One of the things I find fascinating about Eve is that it has so many different directions it can expand in.  Most games are only about your character (and opponents) getting bigger and stronger. Eve has this, but it is also expanding in the direction of smaller (down from the ship towards the character). 

The planetary interaction is a great example of a self-contained economy that doesn't require a lot of knowledge of the rest of the game, but (since the final output goes into high end production) automatically scales the rewards to match the level of inflation in the rest of the economy.

Most innovative? Yeah, maybe I guess it has some innovative things in the way PvP and IG economics is done but in some other ways like UI and combat it is stale and outdated.

I would say Vindictus is alot more innovative with its combat system.

Eve? Yeah I can see that considering all the good additions they made over the year. I think I voted for Vindictus but Eve did add more and all of it was unique.

hands down EVE is the most innovative MMO on the market. The really sad thing is it has been that way for 7 years.....sigh.

Playing: PO, EVE
Waiting for: WoD
Favourite MMOs: VG, EVE, FE and DDO
Any person who expresses rage and loathing for an MMO is preposterous. He or she is like a person who has put on full armor and attacked a hot fudge sundae.

Eve definitely deserved this. I'm not a player of the game myself (I fall into the "I have to have a physical avatar" crowd, plus I don't like the space genre much), but I keep up with the game because I like the concept so much.


Pocket Legends I've never even heard of, and I haven't read anything about Global Agenda that really strikes me as innovative unless you count not being a fantasy title.  The only thing innovative about Vindictus is the combat system. WoW is horribly stale when it comes to gameplay innovation, but they're quite innovative when it comes to accessibility and ease of use. We had the LFG tool earlier this year, and they just finished reworking every class in the game so that they're more streamlined and easy to setup (at the cost of customization).


For me, I would have had WoW in second, and Vindictus in third. Eve definitely deserved the top spot though.

I think you guys are confusing innovation and simply being good game.

EVE maybe did innovate several years back when it was released. But 2010 ?

Ok so it had expansion. Is that innovation ?

Did something fundamentally changed in mechanic of EVE ?



Its a same old and good game.


So maybe best MMO of 2010.

But innovative ?!?
