To celebrate the end of 2015 -- and ring in a whole new year or gaming -- MMOBomb decided to ask its community to weigh in with their thoughts on what they believe to be the more succuessful free-to-play games of the year.

To kick things off, we came up with a list of potential categories and asked our forum goers to list their nominations for each. These categories were:

  • F2P Game of the Year (Any Genre)
  • Best MMO
  • Best MMORPG
  • Best MOBA
  • Best ARPG
  • Best Team Shooter
  • Best New Expansion
  • Best In-Game Events (Holidays and such)
  • Best Browser-Based Game
  • Best F2P Transition
  • Best Cash Shop
  • Best Developer
  • Best Graphics

Community members were also given the option to suggest their own categories if they felt we had missed anything.

Initially I had planned to do a secondary post allowing everyone to vote on the nominations. However, with the holidays and everything we effectively ran out of time for that. Instead I tallied the nominations and awarded the games with the most nominations the win. For most of the categories, the wins were by a small margin… Except for Best F2P Transition, in which one game received the vast majority of the noms.

So, without further ado, we give you MMOBomb Forum Community’s "best of" for the year.
