Tabula Rasa for sure.  Playing that game was a heart break because all the pieces where there to make a great game.

I didn't mind leveling in SWTOR at all and think it's well done.  End game on the other hand is a completely different story.

WAR

Yeah WAR. i am a big fan of the war-hammer universe, but it just did not have the technical finesse to make the game great. As far as WoW is concerned, i believe when people consider it's greatness, they are speaking of the quick downward spiral of  pandering( or panda-ering for a pun) to the under 15 crowd by changing the combat interfaces and making it practically into an arcade/platform game. Don't get me wrong i thoroughly enjoyed the game, cataclysm was a shotgun wound to the legs, but panderia was by far a fragmentation cannon round to the chest. High numbers doesn't necessarily transfer into quality.

In no particular order, my three are:

 

WAR

AoC

TCoS (The Chronicles of Spellborn)

besides WAR, every single Funcom MMO. i can understand GW2 for its potential, but the execution is head and shoulers above TSW, AoC and AO. It's worse than it should be, but not close to a failure of those proportions. It actually has great execution on many of its ideas and when you look at the fact that despite the attitude of most of this forum(which is identical for every MMO that's well liked, yes even SWG and DAoC and EQ a decade ago, i was here) it's not a failure at all.

Auto Assault. The game was incredibly fun & bug free, but ultimately ended up feeling too much like a single player game. This of course caused most people to quit.

It's a sad day indeed when a family is too afraid of reprisals to publicly thank somebody for saving their lives.

War

AoC

TSW

You know Funcom should be paid to come up for concepts for competent people to develop not develop themselves.

None of the games you mention even come close to D&L, if you were really here you would know this. Most here were not about when D&L was being made so they wouldn't know what a real failure is.

TERA gets my vote. If only the game had better character progression because the quest system it has just destroys everything else the game offers.

dark and light didn't even qualify as a game with executed features.

Swtor is my top 1-9 with TSW being 10. I think a lot of people quit playing mmos due to swtor. I like TSW but it could have been SO much more.

I think clearly SWG leads the pack. If you were there when it started it had a huge pack of fanatics just waiting at the gates to get an MMO based on Star Wars. There were thousands of nerds dressed up like princess Leia and Chewbacca and all they had to do was have a decent game to play.

I know there are a lot of people that will say it was great, and I didn't hate it as much as most, but it was lacking a lot in fun PvE combat. I didn't feel like there was any effort put into making the player feel like they were a part of the Star Wars universe.

Whatever the reason it failed fast. I don't think there's been a game since that I thought would succeed and challenge WoW.

I would say SWtOR, but they seem to be moving in a better direction.

WAR after that, and TERA disappointed me but is still contributed to the genre imo.

Fact is it launched with features but all were executed badly, the game failed. None of the games you mentioned even come close.

As for GW2, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, is it a failure, nope but it's a poor game imo.

Shadowbane... hands down, no contest - Shadowbane.

second place = Tabula Rasa

third place = Warhammer Online

fourth place = Vanguard Saga of Mediocrity

honorable mention failure = EQ2.. yep the successor to what i think is the greatest MMO... sucks monkey balls. plays more like Diablo 2 than Everquest.

I didnt vote Dark and Light because i smelled that vaporware shit a year away and never considered it a game IN THE LEAST. hah
