SWG "Best of 2005"

According to IGN, Star Wars Galaxies may not be a complete dissapointment. MMORPGDot.com has a link to IGN's "Best of 2005" and it shows that the Star Wars Galaxy Starter Kit was the biggest surprise. Why? Well, Why It Rocked: One of the most controversial games over the last few years has undoubtedly been Star Wars Galaxies. It was a bit of an experiment gone awry as it took one of the most lucrative franchises around and stuffed a traditional MMO core into it. While it was set in a galaxy far, far away, it certainly didn't seem like it. So in a surprise move this year, after tons of complaints, balancing, and rethinking, Sony Online Entertainment and LucasArts turned the game on its head, ripping out the core MMO system and implementing a more action oriented gameplay style suited more to Star Wars. While we knew they were trying to fix what was there, the complete change of direction was a shocker, especially considering it was announced a day after people had received their copies of the new expansion. Whether it turns out to be for the better or not, it was a huge surprise to a community already in turmoil. It certainly makes you wonder what else they have up their sleeves for the future.
