Failquest: MMO’s That Fell On Their Face

All hail the king. And no, we're not talking about Robert Baratheon or LeBron James. We're of course referring to World of Warcraft, who rules over the land of MMORPG’s with an epic weapon that can only be written in the annals of history with purple ink. While the king has not been, and most likely will not ever be dethroned, a few MMO’s have done quite well for themselves given the circumstances. Guild Wars 2 was met with critical praise, and re-introduced the refreshing concept of paying only once for the game, then playing forever, instead of the typical subscription model. EVE Online hit half a million subscribers two months ago and due to its expansive universe and in-game economy it earned MMORPG.com’s Game of the Year distinction three years in a row, from 2009 to 2011. But for every MMO that has gained relative success, there are many that didn’t even come close to challenging the Azerothian King. Hell, they couldn’t even find his castle. And with the recent release of Defiance, the MMOFPS with a tie-in show on SyFy, and a game that looks like it’ll join the other corpses floating in the moat underneath WoW’s castle, let’s look at some other MMO’s that fell, and fell hard. Hail the (un)victorious dead. From HalfBeard's HUD. (EVE Online, Guild Wars 2, PC, PS3, World of Warcraft, Xbox 360)
