MMOSITE Reader's Choice Awards

I was surfing the GAME! Magazine website when I discovered some very interesting news. MMOSITE.com, one of the international online gaming portals, recently conducted a votation on what games are the best for 2006. Ladies and gentlemen, the results are in and I am very happy to say that most of the games that took top honors are all under the portfolio of Level-up Games. This just goes to prove that the company is committed to deliver the best content for the gaming community in the Philippines.

MMOSITE 2006 READER'S CHOICE AWARDS

GAMES OF THE YEAR

1st Place: RAGNAROK ONLINE
2nd Place: SILKROAD ONLINE
3rd Place: RF ONLINE

Ragnarok Online also bagged "Best Gameplay", closely followed by Fly for Fun and Silkroad. You can view the complete results here.

MMOSITE was on the mark when it described the award:

Maybe it does not have the best graphics; maybe its storyline is not perfect.But you love it best cause’ it fits you well and you find happiness in it.


I agree with them 100%. The most compelling reason why gamers stay in RO is because of the community. They are among friends who share the same culture and habits. In all MMORPGs, there will always be bugs and RO is not an exception. But at the end of the day, gamers will decide to stay because the game is very condusive to community building, especially if they are happy.

In a way, that's the reply I use when I talk to media who ask me how RO will fare in light of new games coming this 2007. I reply by saying that we welcome competition, because it grows the industry. More games mean more happy gamers. However we are confident that RO and the rest of our games will stabilize and continue because of the communities behind them.

To end this post, let me share with you a video of one of the die-hard guilds in RO Chaos Server did. They compiled pictures and in-game footage to come up with a history of their guild. This is the true essence of online gaming - camaraderie and competition.
