Today IGN has released its Top 100 Games of All Time for 2007 and it seems that only one MMORPG made the cut. World of Warcraft came in at a dismal 83 and no other MMORPG made the list. No Ultima Online, no Everquest, no GuildWars, no nothing.
This begs one to question whether any of the 30 selected editors were MMORPG players. Surely a genre of gaming that has recently becoming more and more popular would have more than 1 game on a list of 100. Even a nod to Ultima Online, the first popular MMORPG, would at least get a mention, but this was not the case.
Is the genre too new to recognize in a All Time list? Perhaps, but if a game’s good it shouldn’t matter how new it is, it should be recognized. What do you guys think? Did MMORPGs get the shaft?
