OOOOOO! This is going to be good! I'm seriously not sure who will win most categories.

Pretty lame of you not to include FFXI under any of the best of decade categories (which it would win community hands down, regardless of how you feel about the game) considering its held more subscribers the past 10 years than anything else on the list except for WoW.

I'd suggest it being an oversight.. except you for some reason included Square in the studio polls.

@Celeras

I agree 100% on the lack of FFXI. That's the first thing I noticed when I took a peak at the "of the decade" survey.

@Celeras. I was thinking the same exact thing.
I'm not sure how they could have forgotten Final Fantasy XI, It's been one of the big MMO's for a long time.

-
Not sure why they would add anything from Guild Wars 1 to the list since Guild Wars 1 is not even an MMO.

Agree! Where is FFXI!?!?!?!

Hands down the best narrative and presentation of story of any MMO, and the vast majority of single player experiences as well.

@breezer.
You're wrong, you obviously don' know what you're talking about.

Reading the survey makes me sad at how... well... sad 2010 was for the MMO genre.

I clicked "None of the above" for well over half of them. =\ It was a pretty poor year for jut about every MMO except for WoW and a few betas that won't even be included in the poll.

@Keen and Graev: I did the same thing. I didn't realize it was such a crap year for MMOs until I read the survey. At least 2011 has some offerings to look forward too.

Me too. I thought it was just me being jaded.

I don't feel any particular dislike towards any of the entries (save APB, which was a crushing disappointment). Some of this year's releases I enjoy enough to maintain a subscription to.

I don't think any of them were great, though. I vote for "greats" not "goods."

Maybe I'm approaching my gaming all wrong, but how can anyone possibly experience all of these MMOs enough to accurately compare them against one another?

I found filling out the 2010 survey to be rather tough; absolutely no new release grabbed my fancy this year, the bigger launches were dire disappointments, and the smaller ones were crummy/of no interest.

I wish the decade poll was more elaborate, how often do you get to conduct those? Don't answer that, don't crush my dreams...

Anyway, 2010 was not nearly as bad as 2009, and next year is going to be even better. Although im often disappointed by choices other people make, i cant wait to see the results. At least for the biggest disappointment poll. :)

it's gonna be interesting to see if cata will be voted the best expansion...considering that it hasn't been released yet.

@Xilmar

Well i would consider "The Shattering" as part of the expansion , or at least an "content update" to be considered "expansion worthy" . I'm sure most WoW players have experienced this by now.

Hell the Shattering probably more content changes than most paid expansions in other MMOs....

Why did you have to remind me about The Secret World?

Now I'm once again acutely aware of the fact that it's not out yet.

FFXI needs representation in the best of the decade. It's terrible that only SE is listed, and only for the worst company. Way to play off everyone rage hating on FFXIV. FFXI's community is by far one of the best and FFXI is still a solid game even after 8 years!

I definitely hope this isn't going to turn out like last year... That was kind of ridiculous.

"Beyond 2012" there are games like Black Prophecy and some others didn't expect them to be in that category, I must be behind the news :(
