Changed the title. We're voting for Guild Wars 2, not Guild Wars :P

In the MMO category, if Mists counts as a full game, GW2 is basically screwed. Funny how there's no other competition though.

Can't say I feel GW2 deserves any of the other categories.

Hands down GW2 is the only MMO so far to actually come close to pull off a WoW - it gets my vote no doubt.

Same here.  Its a great game but with so many bugs and problems, it cant be GotY for me.  It's definitely one of the best though, been playing it and only it besides 4 days of Halo 4 since release.

Best MMO, yes.  It's a good game and the competition is pretty weak which offsets any negatives one might bring up.  Panda shouldn't count since it's an xpac but due to the fact that the field IS so weak they'll probably include it.  I'm not even sure they should have an MMORPG of the year category since so few worthy contenders come out in any given year.  Most MMORPGs that get released aren't even worth knowing about and you'd only know they existed if you visited mmorpg.com or the like.

I like GW2 but it's also disappointing in some ways, particularly how ANet has shifted their vision and core philosophies scant months into release, and I surely don't think it's GOTY material or worthy of any other accolades.

GW2 has nice graphics as far as MMORPGs go, but I'm not sure it should even be listed for graphical categories since MMORPGs rarely even come close to touching tech potential compared to other games.  However, with so many PC games having strong console games few games at all are doing anything with serious tech these days - most are wussified to console standards which are years out of date.

If Tetris was somehow a part of that competition I'm pretty sure it'd top GW2.

Best Graphics is such a vague term.

Of course no MMORPG is going to have the slick textures, models, and effects a single player can support.  GW2's art style, however, makes me very, very happy.

Well, you're definitely reliable.  I'll have to give you that.

We could start a drinking game around your posts.

Your excuse for drinking has nothing to do with my reliability. Drink all you want, who cares? :)

The only category where GW2 could be a winner, is best MMO. And that is largely due to the fact that it's not a tough competition this year.

GW2 can't be a winner in any category. It simply isn't best at anything. Far from it, actually.

OH - maybe at creating the biggest fuss over nothing, aka over-hyping. That's what they're really good at. But that's about it.

Fit all those categories for me.

Definitely Game of the Year for me personally, because I waited for it for ages and haven't put it down since its release. The Best MMO/MP ones are a no-brainer, as there really is no other MMORPG that has been released this year that quite caught my attention and the graphics are delicious for my taste - I am more in love with the Art direction than the actual graphics and I am sure there are other (SP) games out there with a lot better graphics in term of technical achievements - so I didn't vote for the latter. ;)

Crazy how many haters lurk these boards.

If this were MMOchampion, they would be banned ASAP.

All I can say is, in my recent trip to Walmart, Guild Wars 2 had one copy left in it's stock section which had two aisles. Mists of Pandaria had about 20 or so expansion discs packed in its own single section.

The WoW battle chests with multiple expansions was stocked to the front. As was SWTOR. TSW had a few copies left.

Obviously this is just one store, etc. but am fine with how Guild Wars 2 is doing. WoW wasn't a blockbuster success when it launched, it didn't have competitive pvp / huge raid scene. Guild Wars 2 has more potential than any MMO atm and that may be on the horizon for some time.

Deal with it.
