This is how bad the year sucked. is running a best new game of 2010 poll here. The nominees are:

FF14, Vindictus, Global Agenda, Mortal Online, Lego Universe, Perpetuum, and Star Trek Online. They also wisely included a “None of the Above” option, which I’m predicting will win by a landslide.

FF14 and MO are busted. GA is hobbling along. Lego Universe seems to have dropped off of the face of the earth. Perpetuum? Best thing people have to say about it is EVE clone. STO? seriously? Vindictus? Not an MMO. I don’t think we could have a worse selection.

    The worst thing is a lot of people in the comments are voting for Perpetuum…people cry about WoW clones all the time and yet Perpetuum is heralded as a good second choice game? Is that how low the “sandbox” crowd has sunk?

    I went with GA simply because it works for what it is and does have an MMO-ish open world zone.

      I think it’s more that perpetuum may be a clone, but it has launched well, with none of the problems a lot of games have. Also people pretty much knew going in that it was a clone, and it made no bones about being more than that.

      Well, that and the list really sucked. You know they were scraping for games when they picked Mortal Online.

    Yeah, I took one look at each of those surveys and thought, “omg, this is terrible” and just closed the window.
