Best New MMO of 2010
- Wednesday, January 19, 2011
Each year, the "Best of" shows and lists make their way around the internet, sparking interest and argument alike. One of the most interesting lists this year was MMO (Massively Multiplayer Online) games. Joystiq and Massive Online Gamer both had good lists that had surprisingly similar results. In the end, Star Trek Online ended up being everyone's best new MMO in 2010! I was thrilled to see STO getting the recognition I felt it deserved and I think this will get the game a lot of attention and new players.
I first wrote about STO here and have been playing it ever since. Unlike most MMO role playing games, which suffer from players apathetic to the plot lines, Star Trek Online immerses its players in plot lines that affect not only the individual ship captains, but entire fleets of player characters. On top of that, it seems that most of the players are also Star Trek fans, which means they're enthusiastic about the story, the characters, and most of all... the ships. I mean, let's face it. If you're a Star Trek fan and you play computer games, you've been waiting for this game your entire Trek-watching life.
Here are some of the awards STO brought home in 2010:
Best Launch of 2010 - Massively's 2010 Player's Choice Awards
Best PVP in a 2010 MMO - Massively's 2010 Player's Choice Awards
