    Where is Hawken? Hawken is an awesome FTP Mech/FPS MMO that deserves to be on this list as much as MechWarrior Online. It's FTP system is perfectly implemented, the only things you can't earn through playing is cosmetic changes to your mechs, that way if someone has paid $1000 to get game currency they have no advantage over someone who has paid nothing.

    Everquest - you know the first graphical MMO and still running, that doesn't deserve a mention at all?

    Where is Runescape? 15 years and still going strong. Never less than 80-100k people online at any given time of any day. Currently ongoing a mayor graphic overhaul and making a move into HTML5.

    Over 1 year play time on Everquest prior to leaving it. Should definitely be on the list. Good luck finding a modern game that requires 72 people to complete a task that would fail if someone didn't do their job.

    planetside 2 is defiantly epic i play it and its incredible to see hundreds of people fighting over the same base that's the same size as a batttlefield map.

    Guild Wars 2 isn't a 5/5, Endgame the game out right sucks and to be honest is boring. It's a 4/5

    GW2 does not deserve the 5/5 . No end game other than the standard korean NCSoft grind for shiny and pretty much comes down to hitting the dodge button harder , 4/5 at best

    Also no Aion? To do end game in Aion requires very little cash shop and it's a solid, full featured world.

    Where's Vindictus and Aion? They're really good MMOs.

    Guild Wars 2 deserves a 5/5 because it manages to combine the good elements of MMOs with the good elements of a platformer. It has really fun combat, which takes the grind element out immediately. I find myself going and killing random things just because the combat system is satisfying. It's really just like a better Everquest 2.

    Where is Runscape? That's the mother of all MMORPGs. Great game, and bringing back old school RS was the best thing they could have done

    Nice to see DC Universe getting some props. They should haver mentioned the excellent pvp aspect. That is where DCU really shines!

    If we are talking about MMO, how come Ogame does not appear ??
    Sure is a web interface game, but still tons of people are playing Ogame, and there are a lot of rip offs that work the same way but changing it's "history"
