On a personal note, of the ones on this list that has me really intrugued, is Funcom’s The Secret World. Funcom have always tried to think a little outside the box when it comes to MMOs and the fact it’s not a fantasy setting is certainly appealing.
Having said that, the fact that Guild Wars 2 takes the anticipated crown is no huge surprise. Following my jaunt around the press beta last weekend, it’s not hard to see why so many gamers are looking forward to this, ArenaNet are trying to push the boundaries with the game. It’s going to fly off the shelves.
