Reader's Choice Best Graphics: EVE Online, CCP Games
Could the sweep be on? This jaw-dropping MMORPG's win is made even more astounding by the fact that the game launched in 2003. Despite its age, no one - in the eyes of our readers - has come close to matching the visual beauty of EVE Online's spaceships, stars, UI and overall visual appeal.
EVE Online places all players in a single universe to harvest materials, fight pirates, complete missions and generally explore their picturesque universe. Clearly, the reader's of MMORPG.com appreciate the effort they put forth as this win makes EVE two for two so far in the awards. The game, which was up for four of seven possible awards, has a chance to be the most decorated MMORPG this year.
