MMOsite Asks Readers to Pick the Top MMO of August

With GamesCom and BlizzCon providing gamers with all sorts of news last month, MMOsite is asking its readers to pick which MMO reigned supreme in August. Here's the choices: Cataclysm, the next World of Warcraft expansion; Aion; Final Fantasy XIV; Dragon Ball Online; Guild Wars 2; C9; Star Wars: The Old Republic; TERA; Champions Online; and Call of Chaos. You can also choose "other" if none of these games pique your interest.

MMOsite gave ratings to some of the games based on gameplay, graphics and popularity. World of Wacraft got a perfect 10, followed by Aion with a 9.8 and Final Fantasy XIV with a 9.3. As far as the votes of readers are concerned, Aion is currently leading the pack with 148, followed by Final Fantasy XIV with 59 and Guild Wars 2 with 58. WoW is currently in seventh place with only 37 votes. Which MMO do you think was the lord of August?

I think I may have lost about 10% of my brain cells just reading that dimwit's article. Who would've guessed that the answer to weight-loss is raising video game prices so far that poor people can't play and have the government set controls on people's play time. Wow.

The ratings should have never been posted imo, it was pretty dumb. Rating an expansion of a game that has been out for five years compared to a game that doesn't even have a beta yet doesn't make sense to me. We already know a lot of what to expect out of another WoW expansion, and sure, they said they were updating their graphics as well, but how much better are they going to be that they received a 10/10 rating? There is very very little information about FF XIV as of yet, and probably should not have been rated at all. Btw, there are some screen shots of FF XIV over in the their forums, which are inside 2 articles, as well as some talk about the gameplay, but no videos as of yet (so I don't think).

Some guy who doesn't quite know what he is talking about wrote:
Maybe Final Fantasy XIV will get full marks after publishing.

What's the point of rating games that haven't come out yet? Is it purely based on our excitement about them? I notice MMOsite gave FF XIV a gameplay rating... based on WTF I don't know since it's nowhere near finished and we haven't even got any videos of gameplay, let alone demos we can play. Heck, we don't even have a screenshot, afaik.

Can't say I disagree with you. Sometimes we like to point out articles like this to keep our users on their toes. We definitely love feedback like this. ;)
