MMORPG.com 2008 Reader's Choice Awards: Most Innovative Feature

Posted Tue, Dec 02, 2008 by Martuk

Age of Conan Hyborian Adventures Combo Combat system recently made MMORPG.com's 2008 Readers Choice Awards: Most Innovative Features list. The article itself covers some of the most innovative features of various games throughout 2008. A very good read for any gamer.
