I'm really curious to hear from those  that know more about it than I.  Where is this love coming from, and should I direct my attention back to this title again?

Whilst still slowly dieing it is still a decent game at its heart.

 

There is one massiveley overpopulated server Starsider and a couple of US that are still helthy both EU servers are still healthy.

 

Theres quite simply put no other star wars game, no game that offers the same social tools and the game has a wealth of end game content in one form or another.

 

I no longer actively sub rid myself of it after 7 years in October or so but i certainly wouldnt tell anybody not to try it.

 

Unfortunately SWG is a game that very much begins at 90 and TBH getting there is boring and frustrating so a new player will likeley not get into it if your a returning vet who hasnt played in quite some time I would say go for it and if your lucky enough to not be on a server thats a ghost town you may just enjoy it.

WoW has millions of satifisfied players but of course on MMORPG Eve-online wins out when it only has 200k players after 8 years. I bet the vote was skewed with multiple accounts. Spreadsheet mining in space. EVE is the biggest scam in MMOs. You don't even need to play to get your player better but it takes 1-2 years to even start really playing. The game is full of elitist idiots. I would not take this "award" seriously.
 

If you are looking for a mind numbingly boring game where it takes forever to get in a correct fighting ship (6-12 months), memorize tons of nonsensical game terminology and then get griefed by 5-7 year-old players go ahead and subscribe. PVP goes like this: you get a friend or 2 and find a fight and then get jumped by 20 guys or so in most cases you will get raped 20 to 1. 20-30 minutes to travel anywhere too.  Many weeks to save up enough money to buy a ship and weapons. Don't let the fanboys tell you otherwise. There's a reason why subscription is so low in the game. Pirate camps consist of 5-30 people sitting on a gate waiting to kill newbies by players with 3-7 years of gear and experience, if you show up with a large gang they hide. OVERRATED.

Nice I think you got nearly every popular EVE troll in 2 paragraphs. However you missed out the mandatory "CCP sell ISK" one, so you dont get a prize.

Better luck next year.

Ok so you post fake numbers which are completely false and you cant even get the right sub numbers. Yes your opinion counts!

EVE had surpassed 200,000 (active) subs in 2007.

Opinions coming from people like that are only valid if they have a fully functioning time machine.

So SWG got 5th?  That is funny considering how there is a forum devoted to burned vets on this board.  I would have thought CoH would have rated higher than it did. On this site, however, I have heard the bemoans of how out of date or tired players have been.  I still find both of these games interesting for what they are.  SWG still has a hint of its old sandbox which probably helps its rating.  Very facinating poll.

The only 2 I thought might rank slightly higher were FE and maybe Guild Wars other than that I thought it was pretty fair and balanced based on the folks who come here.

EVE and WoW have been the top dogs of the genre since their appearences. So the results here aren't surprising.

 Since every game on the MMORPG site was available, who won the award had nothing to do with the dearth of new abd failed games of 2010.

WOW and its legion of several million subscribers was avilable. All of the F2P titles were available. I think the win says more about how good and complete a game EVE is and how well it sits in its niche rather than how weak 2010 was for new games.

 

Umm, it was a poll, on the internet.

'Nuff said.

Gratz to the playerbase mobilizers!

 Yeah just like ANY game could have done that ... Gratz CCP

I started playing Eve this year and I have terribly mixed feelings about it.  It's wonderfully constructed - the richness of the economy, the scale of the world(s), the number of directions they can take it and I'm greatly enjoying slowly exploring its complexity and politics.  But I'm worried that I'm the wrong kind of person to be playing it: I'm a hardcore non-PvP gamer.  I feel afraid to get actively involved in the community, to say a peep in the forums for fear that my every idea, my every opion, will be nudging the game away from ideals of its core players.  So it may eventually be the first game I quit because I don't want to break it.

EVE is the most boring MMO on the market.

Why is it popular? Because every site on the interenet is spammed with "Play eve for 14 days FREE!!" Banners and in theory it's an awesome game. "Go where you want, do what you want. Level up while offline!!" Sounds awesome right? Well much like communism the difference between being awesome in theory and being awesome in practic are 2 completely different things.

This site is a haven for EVE fanbois so it should be no surprise that it won.. again. If this were any other gaming site WOW would have won, you know it, I know it.

The fact that EVE won again should show the credibility of the reviews and 'top games' features of this site.

lol.

If SWG was 5th, there is something wrong here.

I think it just goes to show the type of players that use this website the most.  The spreadsheet kind! :P

 EvE community by its nature is an aggressive community. Its vital to play EvE but that isnt to say it isn't a good game. It doesn give them an invisible edege. Coming here to vote EvE up isnt hard. It isnt for most people. Far too much of a pissing contest and that's not what the average person looks for to relax.

Gratz, CCP. I know you guys work hard on that game. If I go by the trailers, you want to take it beyond the build a bigger blob, destiny the forced PvP is taking it. Good luck in that venture. If it isnt the venture you have in mind, it was still fun and TY.

I'd have to agree that EvE deserves this game of the year title and imho is the best MMORPG out there right now, peroid.. I usually only play EvE 2-3months at a time until i take a break, but its the one MMO i've always been able to depend on for a good time.. Not to mention how complex it is, how unique it is, the community, CCP, ect.. It just has so much going for it..

 

Jan 18th is the patch for the new character creator and the incursions.. Sometime next year i'am assumeing we'll see incarna.. I think no matter what happens in 2011 if all titles end up failing as they did this year (SWTOR, Rift, Tera, GW2, Earthrise, ect) i'll always know ill have EvE to play.

That is your opinion and you are definitely entitled to it.

To me, EVE is the most enjoyable MMO on the market by far.  WoW is one of the most boring.

The reality of EVE is that it is a very enjoyable game where the player creates the fun the way they want to.  If you only have an hour here and there to play - you can play EVE and maximize your enjoyment.  If you have hours upon hours to play then you can become embroiled in the politics, the fights, and the battles over control.  Some of these fleet battles have over a thousand participants.

I can't think of any other MMO that can have over 1000 people fighting in the same region / screen.  Now, there is some lag at that population of player, but the fights are playable... albiet slowly.  Smaller fights of around 500 have recently been without noticeable lag. 

As an aside, I don't think communism as a theory is awesome.  And the reality of it was much worse.

EVE, in theory, can be extremely boring or extremely interesting.  In reality, it plays out the same way.  If you want the game to be really fun then you can go about doing just that.  If you need to be guided through everything and be hand held all the itme then EVE probably will leave you wanting - it doesn't provide a series of quests.  But, if you don't care about any of that and just want to have fun with internet spaceships then EVE is pure win.

Log in, kill stuff (or players) and log out.  Don't worry about anything else if you don't want to.  It's great and deserves to have won.

Guild Wars being the only thing in this list that might have remotely deserved this award, and it's technically not even an MMO.
