Age of Conan: best MMORPG in 2008

Voodoo Extreme (VE3D) @ IGN have recently held their annual Game of the Year Awards where most popular titles of 2008 competed in 16 distinct categories, from Best Graphics to Best Music/Rhythm Game. AoC fans must be pleased to hear that Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures not only won the Massively Multiplayer Game of the Year award, but also was a runner up for overall 2008 Game of the Year Winner (which was Fallout 3, by the way). Click the VE3D logo for the full list of games:

Age of Conan has really matured since the bumpy launch and continues to improve, so I believe this award is well-deserved. I don't see any other MMORPG titles that came out in 2008 that would match AoC in innovation and bringing new features to someone stagnant MMO industry.
