I wanted to press "ALL of the Above", but that option wasnt' there.. lol   However, if I really had to make a choice, I'd say SWTOR simply due that Star Wars is one of the strongest IP's on the market..  You would think that with proper and capable minds behind an IP of Star Wars it would instawin, but that is far from reality..  SWTOR sold of ton of boxes based on that IP and hype, but it fell short in keeping players..  I'm starting to believe that ALL sub based MMO's are all about hype , sales and move on to the next title to exploit..  Why?  Probably because customers are too forgiving, when it comes to boycotting bad games and the company that makes them..

Earthrise tops the list of those I've tried.

Cant believe people are bagging Darkfall, they obviously havn't seen whats going on the last few days.

Playing: Lotro, DOTA2, ESO, Darkfall
Also played and worth mentioning: UO, WoW, Lineage2

Lol it seems every game is a dissappointment. And if so perhaps it is not the games we should be looking at but at ourselves.

 

We perhaps expect too much from games, looking for an all singing all dancing game that captures the feelings we had when we played our first MMO. The feeling, that is said, will never be had again.

 

Perhaps a poll that lists games that lived up to expectaion would be more apt.

For alot of us MMO's do not get a 2nd chance. I never tried Darkfall but I did read abou the mess that it was at launch. Had I tried it at that time I would never try it again. I firmly believe we the gamers need to be more strict on game companies. Really in no other busness do people allow "do-overs". I say get it right the first time or GTFO.

Industry as a whole has gone from 'pretty good' to 'shitfest' for almost a decade now. Biggest disappointment right there.

Only specific disappointment has been Darkfall. A beautiful sandbox devoid of any sand in it, that's an accurate description of DF beta/launch.

Care to give us a little analysis on how they are all "the exact same wow-clone"? I will grant that all or even most of them can be considered as such, but "all"? Do you really want to stick by that without backing it up at least a little?

You know, up until December 2011, I would have said without hesitation Age of Conan.  That game had alot of hype and alot of hopes up leading into release.  I'll give the Funcom credit, they promoted AOC very well and get people pumped up about it.  Entering the game into the beginner area of Tortage was a very impressive experience.  Then, you experienced the remainder of the game which went downhill after that.

So, AOC would have been the most disappointing release for me.  That is, until SWTOR came out.  Now, just from what the devs have announced and promoted in the huge amount of time before the game went live, I knew that it wasn't the game for me.  But you simply could not escape how much excitement and expectations were for this game from around the MMORPG community.

I mean, it was:  BioWare + Star Wars IP + MMORPG + LOTS OF MONEY poured in + Roughly 5 years of development = Gauranteed Win

But it wasn't like that.  There's still lots of people in there compared to competing MMORPGs, but, well...

"I have only two out of my company and 20 out of some other company. We need support, but it is almost suicide to try to get it here as we are swept by machine gun fire and a constant barrage is on us. I have no one on my left and only a few on my right. I will hold." (First Lieutenant Clifton B. Cates, US Marine Corps, Soissons, 19 July 1918)

I dont agree with that. I think Devs need to start living up to thier own hype. If they say feature XXX is going to be in the game, it needs to be in the game.

 

For example. If they say living-breathing-alive world then it should be. SWTOR claimed that. SWTOR was one of the most dead feeling MMO's in history imo. This is just not limited to SWTOR. EVERY single mmo since WoW (including WoW really) has overhyped the truth of what the game is. If it was only the players doing that I would say you are right.  But its not just the players. The players dont help sure, but the companies themselves make sure they stretch the truth as much as they possibly can without being sued for false advertising.

 Quizzical, If I may ask, what game do you play being a man of your great intellect?

:)

been wondering this for quite some time.

Good question.

 

He could be a dev. Probably, he's so smart, he doesn't waste time playing mmorpgs. He just makes them for the rest of us. That would be awesome.

You said exactly why SWTOR shouldnt be as high as it is. Had anyone bothered to look at what it was ahead of time, read peoples experiences from beta weekends, or played in one of the few that was open to the public yourself they hid nothing. It was what it was from level 1. Whereas AoC was one game in Tortage and a completely diffrent, horrible experience after that. And unless you look at forums that allow NDA leaks ect you had NO way of knowing what you spent your money on untill it was to late.

You'll probably see "none" as the most popular answer

SWTOR. Not because off my childhood, since i started with the prequels and not that much of a SW fan, not because i waste by money on it, because i didn't buy at launch.

Simply because when i remember that this is the most expensive video game ever and that the result is a game that is just too similar to WOW and that, probably, most of that money went into an insane amount of voice acting instead of game developement, my reaction is:

Vanguard SoH had all the feature I could want in a MMO, I was so hyped for player housing, boats, huge world with no loading screens.... When i got to play it I felt sick it was so bad.

whoever claims such BS obviously never player WoW vanilla ^^

 

what was the fun part about it, being stuck for 30 mins in your mining animation? falling through ground? waiting 15 mins till the lag ended? or was it the complete unbalance of the classes? or the zerg in TM so he/she could finally get his/her first kill :)

 

seriously, WoW "vanilla" wasn't any better than your first GF, nothing spectecular, but surely worth a memory, since she was your first

Darkfall - or how to ruin a sandbox MMORPG by letting it turn into a PvP gankfest.

Easily SW:TOR, for me. I'd been a Bioware fanboy since Baldur's Gate, and I fully expected them to pull it off. I would have been disappointed by a mediocre MMO...the faceplant we got was shocking.

After playing Dragon Age 2, which already watered down the RPG-idea and was more far away from Baldurs Gate than anything else, I was pretty sure, what i had to expect from Bioware and SWTOR. And then they delivered exactly, what I expected and what was clearly shown in the late videos and articles. So no surpise or dissapointment for me.

SWTOR had at least good stories and quests, so i could treat it as a simple Offline-RPG. I voted for Tera, because the quest-system of Tera is an impertinence nowadays. And aimed targeting alone does not make a good combat system. So Tera had even less to offer, than SWTOR.

Darkfall could become a great game, if they implement clear limitations (caps) into their skillsystem and if they limit pvp-ffa to pvp-continents only. well, therefor they need at least a 2nd continent. i doubt Darkfall 2.0 will make it right, but sometimes wonder do happen.

played: Everquest I (6 years), EVE (3 years)

At first it would have been Warhammer for me ... but then SWTOR came along and trounced everything with its utter awfulness !

Secret world for me... It would had been SWToR but I seen that coming when I was in Alpha testing.  TSW on the other hand, I didn't beta, tryed to stay away from because I loved the lore, story, background, and whatnot. Wanted to come in with a fresh perspective with no hype.  However, the game just fell flat on its face.

The imbalance of the classes was part of the fun, as was the zerg in TM/SS. Personally, I enjoyed PvP more then than I did when it moved to the sterile fake-esport Arena environment.

You have to remember that WoW wasn't the first MMO for a lot of us (especially the EQ crowd). It was just so much better than it's competition at the time.

it was what???

I played EQ1 these times. WoW was even worse than EQ2. And EQ2 was just a watered down shadow of EQ1.

so strategically WoW was the biggest dissapointment of the last decade, because WoW and EQ2 initiated the downfall of the MMORPG-Genre in 2004. But this was not the subject of the poll.

Thats easy. Warhammer Online. I was so hyped by this game watching Paul Bernett class presentations. And was so disappointed with result. Nothing else comes close
