All of history is a lie. The truth depends on who does the listening, and who does the telling...

Good for them and well deserved IMO. While the game lacked in longevity, I spent much more time in GW2 than I did in any other game in a long long time. I still play it from time to time so I shouldn't speak in past tense. All sales numbers and comparison to game X aside, the game is pretty fun and I hope they flesh out some of the games shortcomings in the future. With the jaded comunity that lurks around here, no game will ever live up to the accolades it gets and anytime a game does get some recognition it turns into a conspiracy and the awards must have been bought off by the games receiving them. When that fails, just go to plan B and attack the credibility of the group giving out the awards and speak like we are better suited to pass these judgements. Welcome to MMORPG.com..........

RIP Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan and Paul Gray.

yep. Best evidence that any kinds of "awards" and GOTY lists are meaningless and most likely paid off from the marketing budget.

I don't know where you get your information from, but GW2 is still the top selling MMORPG on Amazon, and the boxed version is still in the top 5 PC games sales too there. And that's only the boxed version, and only on Amazon.

IMO this is the best mmo on the market hands down. TY anet for breaking the mold and almost forcing other devs to innovate more with your success. Alot of haters and naysayers should be eating humble pie if not now just wait for what anet has instore for this masterpiece in the coming years. The future is bright!

 

... To those that got a refund well after release you did not deserve it imo. But the fact that anet is giving out refunds still to this day for jaded players speaks volumes.

 

They dont need your money! Sure they would like it but guess what when a game is this good it stands on its own. This is just the beginning if they can launch with the game as good as it is now then expansions are only gonna make it better.

Don't confuse what you think (or hope) is happening and reality.

Dang, I must resist quoting Icewhite's post again now...

I wouldn't put too much stock into those Amazon rankings.   Star Wars the Old Republic is sitting at #33 for PC games, 2 ranks above the #35 entry for GW2 gem cards.

Damn, I didn't know that what the MMO community wanted all this time was to fill out checkpoints on a map.  GW2 really did a good job on map filling out.

I get my information from company press releases and official comments.

Diablo 3 :  6.8M as of July (latest official figures)

Guild Wars 2 : 2M as of Sep (latest offically verified figures) 

 

Those numbers don't have to be perfect to see that Diablo 3 is doing significantly better than GW2.  I'm not saying this to bash GW2 or anything and, as I explained in other posts, it's not the end all be all of how well a game is doing (I posted some xFire numbers that were in favor of GW2 later).

So stop assuming that anything negative I say about GW2 must mean I'm simply imposing my opinion on the matter.

 Lol are you seriously comparing gw2 to dablo 3, not even Wow, or Sc2 sold that amount in retail in the period of time that diablo 3 did. In fact that 's more than the majority of multiplat releases. Your basically comparing it to the one the best selling probably currently ever in that period of time PC release. It's like comparing borderlands or even halo 4 to call of duty. They're not in the same ball park and that's not a bad thing as they are still successful,

Uh, last I checked, this is about the top game of 2012, and diablo 3 is a game and it was released in 2012 right?

 

This award is a total joke, and any of you that think GW2 deserves it are out of your freakin minds.  Yes, it's possible to like the game, to think it's good, and NOT be completely delusional in thinking it's the top game... fark.

last i checked this thread was called : GW2 voted top video game of 2012  ... its from the gaming magazine powerhouse Time. Grats on that....  you beat out little big planet. Have fun with it.  The threads on why GW2 is better than WoW clones are  -----> that way.  I prefer gaming focused websites for my info.

I'd put it in the top 10, maybe even the top 5, just not the number one position.. that said, the whole list is kind of random.  It's like the mainstream is catching on to the popularity of video games, but they're still pretty awkward about it.  They're taking gaming more seriously, but not actually taking it seriously, yet.

 

It's like making a top-10 list of movies.  Why doesn't Time do that?  Because it's so largely a matter of preference and personal taste.  Especially when you're trying to lump all genres together.  It's just a silly thing to do, all around.

When I want a single-player story, I'll play a single-player game. When I play an MMO, I want a massively multiplayer world.

Good thing some of us don't automatically assume a game is good just because it sold. Blizz is one of the most successful developers and the way they market, as well as the incentives they offer to their huge playerbase to buy another of their products, is more reasons the game sold as well as it did , because it definately wasn't by word of mouth. Yes D3 was a game of 2012, but it was one of the worst I played. Opinions will vary. On the flip side, GW2 was the best game I played with Skyrim coming in second. I know Skyrim was released in 2011 but I didn't play it until 2012 so I'll throw it in there. Like any award take it with a grain of salt. Like I posted before, when a game gets it's dues, it was a hoax or let's just attack the  people giving the award.. sad...
