Game Developers Choice Online Award Results

The results of the Game Developers Choice Online Awards are now available, heaping a pile of prizes on Star Wars: The Old Republic, in spite of the ups and downs experienced by BioWare's MMORPG since it launched a short time ago in a galaxy not so far away. The game took honors for Best Online Game Design, Best Online Visual Arts, Best Online Technology, and Best New Online Game. League of Legends won for Best Community Relations and Best Live Game, while for those who stay a while and listen, Diablo III was picked for Best Audio for an Online Game (the good sportsmanship award).

The story instance things were new. At least how they worked. Dunno if the dialogs offered much in the way of choice. TOR sucked, but I did enjoy the personal storyline.

What a load of BS puffery. How in god's name is a clone reskin of World of Warcraft, right down to the tripartite skill enhancement trees, anything innovative?

All the cool visuals and sounds came from earlier Star Wars games, which in turn came from the movies.

Making melee Jedi be offensively ineffectual tanks was novel in the MMO category?

Hell, for that matter, creating a flop precisely because nothing was novel was, by itself, not even novel for MMOs.
