Reader's Choice Best Game: EVE Online, CCP Games
No big shock here. The big winners today are the guys in Iceland behind EVE Online. They took this category despite stiff competition and record subscriber numbers from World of WarCraft. The game - which has also long been our top user rated MMORPG at 8.4 out of 10 - continues to strike a chord and set new concurrent users records since its launch in 2003.
It won best graphics. It won best company. It won best PvP. How could it not win best game? I believe the awards speak for themselves when it comes to this title.
EVE took the category with 40% of the total vote. Blizzard's World of WarCraft made it interesting as they picked up 31% in this two horse race. Guild Wars chimed in with 13%, City of Heroes / Villains nabbed 8% and Dark Age of Camelot rounded out the field with 5%.
We thank all the thousands of people who let their voice be heard in this year's voting and hope you stick with us throughout the year so we can do it again next year. Will EVE be able to defend its crowns? We'll find out!
Normally, here I'd say to let us know what you think, but I guess you already have. Nonetheless, we'd love to hear your comments. You can post them here.
