It’s award season here at Twinfinite! Let’s look back at the best run active MMORPGs from 2017 voted on by our editors. Let’s start our top vote-getting runner-ups, and finally, of course, our overall winner!

Second Runner-Up: The Elder Scrolls Online

The Best MMORPG of 2017

The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind, games, quiet months

The Elder Scrolls Online’s campaign to restore its honor after its lackluster launch continued in earnest in 2017. Their year was punctuated by the release of Morrowind, an expansion that, as a newcomer at least, we enjoyed very much. It was filled with rich story content, an area full of nostalgia scenery to explore, and the pet/nature-based class, Warden. For our full thoughts, check out our review.

Aside from Morrowind, ZeniMax has continued to consistently add-in new content via patches such as transmutation, PvP modes, and smaller DLC content such as the Horns of the Reach back in August. TESO is hitting its stride, and while it may be too late to catch up to the other two games on this list, that doesn’t take away from the fact that it’s evolved into a worthwhile MMORPG over the years. And in 2017, it built on that progression in a significant way by successfully returning fans to a beloved region.

If what you want to do is carve out a piece of the Elder Scrolls of the world for your own and explore alongside other human players, TESO is delivering right now and doing it on PS4, PC, and Xbox One to boot.

First Runner-Up: World of Warcraft

The Best MMORPG of 2017

Sandwiched in-between two games that had expansions released in this calendar year, World of Warcraft impressed us with its post-Legion content. A steady stream of updates ensured that Legion-era WoW didn’t lose momentum following its release, and continued going strong right into the announcement of the next expansion, Battle For Azeroth.

If you’re a fan of WoW’s story content, 2017 delivered a satisfying conclusion arc including Guldan and Sargeras. Demon Hunter was shaped into a worthwhile and valuable new class, and updates gave hardcore grinders the ability to empower artifact weapons.

2017 solidified Legion’s place as one of the best expansions in WoW’s illustrious history, and has the game going strong into 2018 and Battle For Azeroth with a full head of steam.
