This is the last match of GameOgre.com’s MMORPG Showdown 8. This annual tournament determines the best MMORPG out of 16 games. The winner will be named MMORPG of the Year. GameOgre.com also has a Prediction Contest for forum members each year for a $10 Ultimate Game Card (UGC).
MMORPG Showdown 8 all comes down to this final match between two industry titans. Surprisingly this is the very first time that World of Warcraft has made it to the finals. Free-to-play games always seem to slip by World -of-Warcraft until this year. Guild Wars in direct contrast has been to the finals before and has won. Can it it win again or will World of Warcraft finally get the MMORPG Showdown crown? One leads buy-to-play MMORPGs while the other leads Pay-to-play MMORPGs. World of Warcraft has already scored a major win against another buy-to-play powerhouse, Minecraft. Guild Wars 2’s biggest win this season was against long-time free-to-play MMORPG known as RuneScape. May the best MMO win.
