The Ten Ton Hammer MMOG Decade Awards 2001-2010 - Page 8

At Ten Ton Hammer, we believe we have the best jobs in the world. Why? Because we get to play almost every MMOG that comes around.

The past decade has given us a lot of games to play, and between the editors, we have a lot of gaming hours logged. When considering a game for nomination for the Editor's Choice Award of the Decade, we asked ourselves one simple question: "Which game has given us the most full MMOG experience?" We looked for a game that had a huge world that was easy to immerse ourselves into. We wanted a game that had a rich history and lore. The Editor's Choice Award had to go to the most complete, fully featured, rich world that had the whole package, from crafting, to adventuring, to raiding, to social tools.

For a game that had it all, our choice became clear.

EverQuest II is perhaps the most fully featured MMOG on the market today. Since its launch in 2004 it has seen six expansions with a seventh on its way. This game offers players an incredible story, a welcoming newbie experience, joyful leveling, and rewarding raiding. Not only that, but we found its crafting to be among the most enjoyable.

Weighing in other great mechanics like an unmatched Broker system, fully customizable personal homes and guild halls, guild leveling, Heritage Quests and rewards, gritty group instances, newly spiced-up PvP, creative quest design, humorous stories, effective progression tracking and a plethora of other features, there is no other game on the market that has as much pure content to offer as EverQuest II.
