Hmm, there wouldn't happen to be a lot of Runes of Magic fanboys on this site would there?

Read the first paragraph or two to understand what happened there, regarding the Reader's Choice awards.

The digg generation doesn't read actual articles, only headlines.

Really people? Runes of Magic sweeping all the "good" categories? So the basic method of success is copy WoW down to the letter, make it free to play, and suddenly it's the best thing ever! (Oh, also have all your readers come pollute what could have been an interesting poll)

But I have to say, I do agree with all the staff's choices.

Thank you! ^_^ I like to think that the staff choices are more... um... accurate. XD

I agree with the Editor choices. How many of the voters REALLY tried each game (and not to like... level 2-3) before voting?

I'm on my first week of Fallen Earth (level 12). Loving it. Fully plan to keep going for another month to see what it's like. Glad the Editors chimed in on it.

Psst: Free Trial is free... go find out about what you're missing. See for yourself.

What a complete load of rubbish, both on the "readers choice" and staff side.

What a joke. Why must there always be one company that ruins the accuracy of a poll by telling all their subscribers to go flood it? Same thing happened a while back with Turbine and an Escapist contest...

On a side note, I agree with most of the staff choices. Only thing I would swap out would be SWTOR for most anticipated of 2010 (I know it wasn't a choice, but I'm pretty confident it will release some time this year. We already know more about it then most of the titles that have a release date already.)

I think 2010 is going to end up writing you an I.O.U. :\

I guess one of your coworkers is an idiot then :/

You misunderstood my point, sir. I just think Mr. Horner is wrong in stating that TOR won't be released in 2010 like its a fact. It certainly might not be, but it's a very distinct possibility given the abundance of information that we already have on it.

Runes of Magic????

Well I guess this sums it up best

"Especially when you have millions of players"

Pretty sad when an imported F2P wins out in every category, speaks volumes about the state of the genre.
Most P2P games couldn't muster up enough players to fill a bus these days. Hell I think SWG has more subs then WAR and AoC at this point IMHO as I've dabbled in all 3 in the last 6 months.
WAR has to be the worse of the three.

You might be right about that. Some of the SWG servers have over-population problems -- those are the kind of problems I like having (hi Starsider!) I realize you weren't considering that a compliment, excactly, but for a 6.5 year-old-game to be mentioned alongside 2008's big-names is a big deal.

The Massively staff poll seems a bit on the silly side, though. There weren't exactly all that many games to actually launch last year, and they all pigeon-holed themselves right into the obvious categories. Ho-hum.

Well I didn't mean to compliment nor slander just compare.

But yeah, SWG has one of the strongest populations I've seen in awhile.

While the handful of disgruntaled vets haunt the forums for the last 5 years, a lot of people are currently playing the game despite that prolonged hate campaign.

Well, luckily, I think most people already realize that Runes of Magic is a terrible, terrible game.

Then again, there certainly wasn't much competition this year. When Fallen Earth wins best new MMO, ya know it's been a tough year.

Agreed.

The solution is to make reader's votes public, rather than simply incrementing a number.
