    Guild Wars 2 deserves it. It's a really good game. Honestly the negative forum buzz reminds me of WoW and LoL for the first year or so of their release. Man, I remember WoW being bashed SO hard when it launched, and for like the next year after it launched. "This game is so bad compared to EQ!" "This game might be decent if the servers weren't always down!" "Blizzard should have stuck with RTS or made Diablo 3." Despite how the game apparently had failed in the eyes of forum-goers, it became one of the most popular MMOs of all time. LoL was very much the same way, though people were (and still are to a much lesser extent) complaining about how casual and watered down it is compared to DOTA...yet now, LoL is the most played game in the world.

    I'm not saying GW2 is going to be, or is currently, the "next big thing." I just think the negative forum buzz isn't all that uncommon for these legitimately good games at launch. The people who didn't like the game will eventually move on. As long as ArenaNet does a good job supporting GW2, it'll continue to grow in popularity. Really nice to see it get all of these GotY awards.

    I think it deserves it, of all the games that have been released with HUGE expectations, I'm happy to say that Guild Wars 2 was the one that was the least disappointing for me. Granted I don't play it for the main reason of there's just pretty much nothing I'm interested in doing at max level anymore, and they can't/won't return hacked characters, but, it was a great and fun experience while it lasted, I'll always come back for jumping puzzles everytime they add them.

    Being the least disappointing does not make it a great game.

    Don't know what's worse ME3 ending or Zhaitan, but at least if you completely isolate the single player experience ME3 is a better overall RPG, at least in my opinion, and that's funny considering GW2 also got best RPG.

    Totally independent of all my gameplay gripes about GW2.....it's a sad, sad day for RPG's when this gets called the Best RPG though. Should have called it the "IGN Shiniest Turd Award".

    Guild Wars 2 has problems long term at level cap, but it's a fantastic game otherwise. I don't think any other MMO manages to get world exploration being fun to do as well as Guild Wars 2.

    Game of the Year on gamespy too. I think they awarded 10 different games the game of the year 2012 title :s

    I can see best MMO, but I'll have to disagree with best PC game and best graphics. Best game, for me, would have to go to The Walking Dead. You play it once, and you see a very good game. You play it a second time, and you see an amazing game. Best graphics, form their limited list, I would say Far Cry 3, but from the games I have played this year, I'd have to say TSW.

    Haha... as if an IGN award is worth anything... IGN could have shit in their hand and given it directly to Anet... it's pretty much the same.
    Most likely the wisest Enhancement Shaman.

    I get it why it got awarded for best graphics:

    -) great artworks
    -) huge visual range - you can see enemies and allies from a huge distance
    -) pretty solid performance in large groups - if you have the right CPU
    -) still nice graphics on low settings
    -) detailed huge zones - no copy & paste

    It's pretty good, true.

    -) huge visual range - you can see enemies and allies from a huge distance
    Oh sure. Unless there's more than 10 things on your screen, and then people are just flat out invisible. Fix culling already.

    -) pretty solid performance in large groups - if you have the right CPU
    Unsure how that's even a bullet point. "Hey, this software runs great if you have the hardware to make it run great!"

    Brilliant!

    -) detailed huge zones - no copy & paste
    Yeah, it's better than many of the games out there in that regard.

    I can see that 74 different types isn't enough for everyone. Wait... I cannot.

    Well, it IS mostly Centaurs everywhere in most human zones. Of course, that makes sense because I guess they're like...the big-bad enemy of the humans and all. But it's undeniable that "fighting centaurs" will make up a lot of your time leveling a human.

    you should really visit the other 21 zones instead of the 4 where centaurs are ruling

    I am sorry if you feel personally offended by my tone just so you know I am trying, atm I'm in jungle spider limbo.

    Also just to be factual i did encounter more bandits than centaurs, criminality in Kryta has gone out of control.

    Angry Joe weights in with his top 10 of 2012. Guess which game is number 1?


    Joe is a clown but his original GW2 review is excellent.

    Angry Joe is a nut but he likes a lot of the same games I do. I approve of his top 10 list.
