Guild Wars 2 and ArenaNet were on the receiving end of a pretty decent nod recently.
Time Magazine gave the MMO the top spot on its year-end best games list. The mag cites Guild Wars 2’s constant action and events as a main draw:
Call it the pinball machine of MMOs, devoted to keeping you entertained by the minute, whatever you’re doing. You’ll get into snowball fights, go on scavenger hunts for eggs, play catch with barrels, defend homesteads from ice worms, protect towns from bear hordes and knock out enemy portals that spawn creatures like the Chitauri in The Avengers.
GW2 beat out Halo 4, Assassin’s Creed III, and Dishonored, which placed ninth, fifth, and fourth, respectively.
Check out the full list:
- Guild Wars 2
- Xenoblade Chronicles
- XCOM: Enemy Unknown
- Assassin’s Creed III
- Papa and Yo
- The Last Story
- LittleBigPlanet (PS Vita)
- Halo 4
- Torchlight II
It is time for the yearly “best of” lists to hit. What does your list of best 2012 games include? What do you think about Time’s rankings?
