I guess I'll start this thread. I thought it's Mr. Ogreman who does that. XD Perhaps a poll can be initiated later. Anyway, 2011 is definitely the best year for gaming. First is obviously the number of good games that was released last year. 2011 welcomed the entry of games like Rusty Hearts and Dragon Nest, which got a huge following, not only in GameOgre, but in many other gaming communities as well. There is also the highly-anticipated Star Wars: The Old Republic (SWTOR). The release of Skyrim also shook the gaming community with its tantalizing graphics and immersive gameplay. Indeed, there is the usual influx of ordinary and commonplace MMOs, but there are also diamonds which stood out from the rest. 2011 certainly gave us some diamond-quality MMOs. Another reason why 2011 is the best year is that it can be considered a pivotal point in MMOs. Many players are tired of the usual point-and-click gameplay that is being offered by hundreds of other MMORPGs. Even the legendary World Of Warcraft (WOW), is showing signs of aging as it continually loses its player base. 2011 debuted some ActionRPGs that are currently enjoying widespread success. An example of which is Dragon Nest. Games like this gave us an entirely new experience of the MMORPG genre. Given the success of these games, it is only a matter of time when more and more developers give us these kinds of good-quality games. The year 2011, can definitely be considered as a starting point of a new and better trend for the genre. Lastly, the previous year showered us with anticipation. Being able to play a nice game is definitely a good thing, but knowing that there will be good games waiting to be played in the near future is also a good thing. 2011 as the pivotal period of the genre, is proven to be true as we near the coming of other highly-anticipated and innovative games like Blade and Soul, Diablo 3, C9, and Guild Wars 2.
