You're either in my corner, or you're with the trolls.

For me without a doubt it was SW:TOR. 2nd Place is Diablo 3 and third place goes GW 2. Although now when I think about it, I consider them all equally bad. A shame 3 first placers isn't possible.

  • SWTOR: Digital Collector's Edition (still one of the worst combat mechanics, imo);
  • Horizons (real old school POS);
  • Tabula Rasa:  Garriott quote "...you can visit dozens of planets...!" Crappy game shipped with 2 planets
  • GW2 
  • DDO - everything is instanced and combat is (mostly) clicky auto-attack. "zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz" Even the puzzles are boring!
  • WoW - Mists of Pandaria: MMORPG for Dummies. Damn game plays itself, now. Completly useless game. Now it's just a 3D social media hangout for pre-pube-teens of all ages.
  • Diablo 3 - "Nuff said.
Games I predict will fall in this list:
  • Elder Scrolls Online - "Hey guys, let's take everything that's cool about an open world RPG and throw it out to make a also-ran MMORPG, but let's coat it with an Elder Scrolls look. Yeah, that's the ticket!"
  • Marvel Heroes Online - "I made Diablo... no, I made it all by MYSELF, without anyone's help! So that makes me an expert on all things ARPG. So, henceforth, ergo, vis-a-vis, I shall make Diablo with Marvel characters and tell everyone it's a free MMORPG. No, you can't make your own characters. That wouldn't be Diablo, you ass!"
  • Wildstar - It's from NCsoft; where MMORPGs go to die soon after release.
  • SWTOR's Epansion - It's SWTOR, but with added useless crap that could have very well been in an update. Though the 10 fanbois that love it and still play will be tickled.
  • Neverwinter - It's from Cryptic. 'Nuff said.

I make spreadsheets at work - I don't want to make them for the games I play.

im not going to defend ncsoft

but Wildstars dev team is Carbine Studios -- ex Blizzard staff

 

2008 Interview with Jess Lebow of Carbine: The Next Big Thing?

http://vault.ign.com/View.php?view=Articles.Detail&id=32

 Carbine is composed of industry veterans, a great number of whom were formerly World of Warcraft developers who left Blizzard to form the studio, and who later hooked up with NCSoft. Their executive producer Jeremy Gaffney was a VP at NCSoft and co-founder of Turbine, where he headed up the development team for Asheron’s Call. From the ex-Blizzard core group of ten, the team has grown to 45 at last count.

“It’s a very seasoned team,” says Jess. “It reminds me a lot of working at Arena Net, when we were developing Guild Wars. It’s like working for an all-star team where everyone is as good as they can be in the position they’re at.”

I played SW:TOR pretty obsessively for the first month. Then I finished the storyline on my Trooper and left it be. Overall, I think got a decent amount of fun from it for the price I paid.

The worst purchase I made was definitely the new Rift expansion. $25 + $15 for a month of playtime and I was bored to tears by day 4. Turning the majority of quests into Kill 20-30 X, where each monster had a massive HP pool and mobs were spread out so far that you had to mount and ride to go from enemy to enemy drove me nuts. Combine that with the massive XP requirements that forced you to bounce back and forth between the two continent storylines (which further killed my desire to try alts) and I left after only gaining 2 levels.

The second worst was probably GW2 for similar reasons. I loved GW1 and sunk well over 1500 hours into it, but the sequel did not do it for me. Despite all the ways I could get XP, the slog to get from level to level was excrucitating and the content I really wanted to play - personal stories - was both lackluster and spread far too thin to be a long-term enticement. I made it two weeks before I set it aside. I still have urges to play, but I have yet to log in since quitting shortly after its release.

Starting to look like GW2, played for a few weeks and haven't touched it since.

I know it's back, but the new company hosting hellgate has made it so glitchy it's not even funny. I'm sure it's fixed by now, but most of us have moved on from it to better games :-/

And those of us who had bought founder packages were NOT honored... so we lost out on $200.

Aion. Everything else I have at least enjoyed for a month or so. Even Warhammer.

The Secret World was the purchase I made.  I have had some others, but at least I played them for a month - 6 months.  TSW lasted a good 2 hours for me =P

Gw2 by far, huge huge letdown. I remember in the BWE3 i played a necro and thoguht i made a bad purchase cus the game bored me so much. Figured it was the class.  

Everyone i know and got to buy the game quit or max expect one person, all my friends quit in the first month and i quit in the second and came back in the middle of jan and quit again. The game is just so utterly boring, really doesn't play like an mmo.

So much potential yet fell so sort of what it should have been.

I'm phrasing my reply both with respect to money wasted and sheer disssapointment (which is actually worse)

 

1) SWTOR: Collector edition

Got less than 2 months out of this.

2) GW2.  Actually spent money in the cash shop for crafting items *facepalm*

Couldn't hit max level :(

3) WAR / AoC 

Again, couldn't hit max level.

 

 

Pleasant surprises: Rift (got 6+ months), LOTRO (got 1 year).

I WOULD say Final Fantasy XIV, but I'm actually looking forward to A Realm Reborn, so the big "Craaaaaap-tastic" prize would have to go to Diablo III.

 

It was apparent all too soon why they only let you complete the first part of Act 1 during Beta.

 

At least the talented folks that split Blizzard to make Torchlight and TL 2 made up for it-- AND for a fraction of the price.

Morrowind was 10 times the game Oblivion was.

 

Worst MMO Buy: Mortal & Darkfall

Awwwww someone said your "old school and nostalgic" game is worse than it's sequel? Yeah, if you compare the amount of content that Oblivion has to Morrowind, it is a much better game. Oblivion is almost undeniably better, you're only saying it's worse because you're comparing it to how good Morrowind was FOR THE TIME PERIOD. You are a complete moron who has no idea how to judge a game by it's objective quality. But hey, listing no reasons of why Morrowind is better does a good job of proving my point that you're a nostalgia gaming retard.

All Points Bulletin

A game with the potential to tap into the GTA fan base if only it was done decently.Instead you got two shitty combat areas and a social area. AFK/macroers ruined match making. Hacks/cheats made it suck(tho not as many as you see in other pc shooters).  It would have been a lot better to just have a huge city map and let players do their thing but instead the game sucked,Its company went bankrupt,and now its a pay to win piece of shit.

We wont mention balance and how retardedly easy it was for Enforcers to win against Criminals using Less than Lethal over-powered weapons.

I think I pretty much gave up on that game entirely when I realized that the only permanent weapons were ones you had to buy with real money. It had a lot of potential to be awesome, kind of like GTA (like you said). Did you actually spend money on it or do you just regret playing it?
