First they had a big hit with GW1 which they let die out on purpose cause of GW2 coming out.
Which and i think ArenaNet did good and bad with that GW2 was no longer part of NCsoft.
Affraid of going down with them but they did had more money with NCsoft so nowadays GW2 doesn't have that much updates anymore as they used to. Still best mmo ever imo.
Back to the subject there was still Aion and Wildstar got added later on.
In the meantime Gameforge bought loads of stocks and took in Aion which soon after had a larger player base then the NCsoft Aion client.
So everything was up to Wildstar to save the day.
A pretty solid mmo nice cartoonish graphics, good character creation and voice-acting and all was perfect. But didn't really bring enough new stuff to the market to make it outstanding.
Plus at first it was Buy to Play with a monthly-subscription while there is enough choice on the market for free with the same or maybe better experience.
I myself played the beta but found it also not good enough to buy and even when they went F2P i have tried to like it but the questing is to repetitive and the fact every class or race starts in another area and no way to teleport there made me not able to play with friends and i stopped playing.
Now before NCsoft had drawn it's last card the long awaited Blade&Soul got out.
In many ways different then other mmos and really worth the wait.
Graphics, gameplay and combat, voiceacting, cutscenes it all looks good.
Hopefully this game is gonna stay for a very long time, i'm sure it could make a lot of gamers happy and a memorable experience.
I would love to give a massive A bomb to DayZ. That fucking game is trash. everytime I try to play it I can't because the damn mouse doesn't seem to work and no its not my PC its the DayZ trash. Now that is a game that need to die. I would love to a DA bomb to Zach's camera. finally your voice and lips are in sync with each other and it doesn't feel like I'm watching a 70s kung fu movie.
