It was a close call, but we simply couldn't resist the tremendous accomplishments of Blizzard's first massively-multiplayer outing. By fixing classic flaws that have plagued the MMORPG genre and delivering a rock solid world from day one, World of Warcraft is a study in smart, efficient, and caring game design. More importantly, it's just about the most addictive, exciting and rewarding game we played all year. In a landscape filled with tweaked sequels and redundant play experiences, World of Warcraft serves as reminder that nothing beats fresh material, particularly when it comes with orcs and zombies. We tip our caps to the folks at Blizzard for wowing us once again and proudly present them with our Best Overall Game of 2004 Award.
