GameSpy 2006 Winners

GameSpy's 2006 PC Winners! Get this... it isn't World of Warcraft! It's Guild Wars! Shocked? Me too. They explain their decision: When a mammoth game like World of Warcraft is unleashed upon the world, it's hard to take in the long view of the MMO market. But its four-million-odd subscriber base be damned, there is a game out there that's pushing the boundaries in more meaningful -- and, very likely, more far-reaching -- ways. That's Guild Wars, which gets the nod here for a multitude of reasons. Primarily, it provides a gameplay experience that's packed with topnotch content, well-designed underlying systems, and amazing visuals. And it provides all this without a monthly subscription. It's a bold move for an MMO, and when you consider that the quality of Guild Wars' experience is on par with the best pay-for-play MMOs out there, well, it's bound to make splashes. And we'll be feeling their effects soon. Best part- WoW was merely an "Honorable Mention." Bet thats gonna stir up a lot of trouble! Check It Out Complete Index In Honor Of Guild Wars New Fan?
