    Really? Is that the new thing on Tom's now - recycling your own news posts? I guess posting old news just wasn't annoying enough.

    Where's Vindictus and Aion? They're really good MMOs. This list definitely overlook on a lot of other good MMOs and focus on the popular brandname of the game like Star Trek.

    The ratings suck. Tera 3/5 where worse mmo's score 4/5 or even 5/5? Please. Guild Wars 2 has a great art direction? No mention of Tera's art? Tera's art is waaay better than Guild Wars 2. Just look at the flora and landscapes. Must say though, Planetside 2 does look interesting.

    Wither you love or hate it. How are you gonna give the most popular a 4/5. WoW is still the king wither you want to admit it or not. Thus deserves the highest rating.
    And then you go on and give lotr/swtor (which I did like) a 4/5. They really should have at most 3/5. That's being generous to lotr.
    Planetside is really one of the few that I can agree on. As for what it is I think it hit the nail right on the head.

    I always find myself growing bored of the monotany of this type of game. At first I love it, then a month or two later I find I don't even play it.

    And some of these are way over priced. $15+ a month, for a game that should be one time $50. Sad so many are falling for the "multiple pay the rest of your life" and "pay to win" games.
