I love how they had to edit in GW lol, essentially it is the most successful mmo after WoW and it got missed.

purely puzzle based, and very fun. what a shame it didn't make it.

missing free realms - even though it's made for little 9-year-olds and is rubbish.

Also, runescape has consistently gained popularity before and during wow's existance.

no doubt there are a bunch of others. Archlord is around, and entropia...

how did the article miss these?

They neglected to even -mention- FFXI, which is probably more successful than a fair number of those games that they did mention.

It remains successful to this day, with an estimated 500,000 active accounts. It is also a pretty amazing MMO, with an actual focus on story, for once.

There's a 14 day trial for it, so I urge anyone who has ever had an interest in FFXI, to give it a go, completely free, at www.playonline.com
