    After I'm done with GW2 (hopefully lvl 80) Planetside2 is my next stop, that or Hawken.
    You have to keep in mind that these are titles are no less subjective than personal preference, it's just that there are more people saying gw2 is GOTY than people saying it's not.

    All in all it was a good year for gaming, would have liked to see more mentions going to Spec Ops: The Line for it's fantastic story and narative, seeing as how The Walking dead got its share of awards. Also more for Farc cry3, a far cry from it's predecessor and a rather engaging game.

    It seems GW2 is winning most of the GOTY awards and all things considered I think it’s a worthy winner. Really the only thing I don’t like about GW2 is the non-trinity dungeons which is a shame because the rest of the game is brilliant.

    Na its not really, but it has won a lot. Its quite spread out this year, what with walking dead, borderlands 2, dishonored and even mass effect 3 picking some up. I think any game that wins goty generally deserves it even GW2.

    Ps Ive never heard of Zam.

    It’s easy to forget just what an achievement this game is.
    Very first line of the review.

    I totally agree. It's REALLY easy to forget. Because the list of achievements just isn't that impressive.

    What do they list...graphics? WvW?
    Casting while moving? (That's an achievement? Really?)
    Overflow? (Was a god-awful system at the time when it was most needed, sorry).
    HEARTS? (I still think it's good idea that's lazily implemented. It's arguably better than standard quests, but just so poorly done in game that it doesn't feel any better)
    Crafting is "useful and fun"? (Ok, even if you love the game, you have to admit that's total bunk from the reviewer)

    But anyway, large MMO releases tend to take away a lot of awards, regardless of how they perform down the road. Just how it is.

    GW2 didn't even make top 5 in the Escapist's list.
    No mmo made that list, interesting. Not surprising to me though as I think mmos are pretty much terrible.

    Well, yea, he gave it 9/10 as far as I'm concerned, and although the review was fun to watch, I don't agree with his opinion. That's the point.

    You play WoW, correct? Surely you've heard of WoWhead and Tankspot, that's part of the ZAM Network.
    Who knows more of gods than I? Horse gods and fire gods, gods made of gold with gemstone eyes, gods carved of cedar wood, gods chiseled into mountains, gods of empty air... I know them all.

    Zam was originally Allakhazam's Magical Realm. It was one of the first organized Everquest and MMORPG websites. Pre-2000s.

    I weep for the children playing today's MMOs.

    IMO, GW2 doesn't deserve a GOTY award.
    I played if tor almost 2 months, and after the first shiny "new kid on the block", I could see that, in the end, it's just another MMO like every other one around (including Wow).

    The graphics are good, but they don't have any kind of personality for me. I played a bit of Rift in a friends account when it launched, and GW2 looked like just like it. The textures gave me the impression of being washed and everything being in a kind of grayish tone.
    I really, really like the animation tho, especially the movement ones. It gave a sense of weight to the character.
    Regarding gameplay, the PVE content is just a big, random and senseless mess. Thanks to the graphics, I couldn't distinguish between what was the boss and what was the player, and gameplay ended up being "hit a few times, get insta-killed, run back until the guy dies".
    I liked the swapping of weapons, but the skills ended up being just an auto attack spam. Click and forget.
    And of course, being a game with a cash shop makes the gamers life miserable. That goes from being fucking hard to get money, to everything costing an arm and a leg (including things from NPCs), to the traveling system eating a fuckton of money, and surely, the gear from the wolrd being unbelivably boring and plain, while the gear from the shop looked really cool.
    I can't rate PVP, because I played Ragnarok for almost 3 years, and no pvp has ever came close the beating the fun that was War of Emperium and the castle dungeons area.
    And I wish the non-tag enemies became a norm for all mmos.

    I think he gave 10/10, was kinda out of place, specially he just mentioned the negative side of the game at the end, then bumm, 10/10
