Steam revealed their best selling games of 2018 earlier this week and several MMORPGs made the list including Elder Scrolls Online, Black Desert Online, and Bless. The list contained the top 100 best selling games broken down into sections by sales with 'Platinum' selling the most followed by gold, silver, and bronze. Warframe and Elder Scrolls online were Platinum, meaning they are amongst the best selling games on the entire platform. Black Desert Online and Path of Exile came in at Gold, Warthunder took silver, while Final Fantasy XIV and Bless took bronze. View the full list here. The fact that such a disappointing game like Bless even made this list goes to show that there's still pent up demand out there for an MMORPG. It's the same reason almost every moderately sized MMORPG gets a ton of hype before release. Players are looking to sink their teeth into an MMORPG, but new titles have largely been disappointing.

Massively Overpowered’s end-of-the-year 2018 awards continue today with our award for Best MMO Event, which is sort of a new category for us this year. Previously, we’d doled out awards for best holiday event – those went to Lord of the Rings Online last year and The Secret World the year before – but we wanted to expand the category beyond just holiday events this year to allow more nominations across the whole spectrum of the genre. After all, MMOs aren’t just about mega-updates; plenty of online games revolve around dynamic events, competitive tournaments, and social celebrations, both studio- and player-induced. The Massively OP staff pick for the Best MMO Event of 2018 is… Brianna Royce (@nbrianna, blog): It’s funny: When Eliot first proposed Elite Dangerous for this award, my first instinct was oh hell no; the most recent event we covered, for example, was basically about how Frontier totally botched the … [Read more...] about Massively OP’s 2018 Awards: Best MMO Event of 2018
While 2017 was a big year for mobile, 2018 was even bigger, as more and more MMORPG companies, from CCP Games and NCsoft to Blizzard and Daybreak, pivot to mobile. Of course, veteran MMORPG games can be pretty grumpy over mobile games, especially the perception that in the zero sum game of development, PC MMOs are losing out. For today’s Leaderboard, let’s put it to a vote: What was the best mobile MMO of 2018? Loading ... … [Read more...] about Leaderboard: What was the best mobile MMO of 2018?
I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m primarily a PC gamer. When I was a kid, my family couldn’t afford the endless parade of consoles other folks had, so outside of playing on those devices at friends’ houses, I basically jumped from our raggedy old Atari straight to the desktop PC. And I’m pretty comfortable here. Sure, I’ve gamed a bit on console; we have a PS3 and a Wii kicking around, and there’s a Switch wrapped up for Christmas stashed away in my house right now too. But PC gaming is where 99.9% of my expertise lies. I have a feeling I know which MMOs will come out on top with a question like this, but I don’t presume to preach to you. So let’s put it to you folks: Which MMORPG offers the best console experience in 2018? Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred … [Read more...] about The Daily Grind: Which MMORPG offered the best console experience in 2018?
Yesterday, we asked you to examine the best PvP experience of 2018, having noted we won’t be giving an award for it this year. And while we’ll be doing an award for a few specific types of core MMO-centric content, we’re not doling out one for PvE specifically either. And yet, as we noted with some amusement on last week’s podcast, PvE combat content is the backbone of both the traditional and the modern MMORPG. Games without it are few and far between. Let’s face it, MMO players are murderhobos most of the time. It’s what we do. It’s what they make us do. So for today’s Daily Grind, set aside content like building and crafting for a moment and focus on PvE and PvM content specifically. Which MMORPG offered the best PvE experience in 2018? Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre.
