Voting opens for this year's best MMO

Pandaren Monk In Jade Forest

Fans urged to nominate their favourite virtual worlds in over 20 categories.

When you get home do you log into an interactive world of wizards and goblins or do you prefer technology and massive space battles? Whatever your clique, gamers are now being asked to vote for their favourite MMOs.

Launched by website and free-to-play games maker GameGenetics, the MMO Of The Year 2013 hopes to get gamers and specially chosen judges to assess what's out there in online worlds.

Last year the group claimed that hundreds of thousands of people put forward their favourite MMOs from around the world, and subsequently they've opened up voting to new regions, including Portugal, Spain and Latin America.

There are over 20 categories that online games can be nominated for, with the judges then picking up the process and whittling down the titles until there are clear winners.

MMOs on a variety of platforms are eligible to be nominated, from mobile-phone based RPGs though to more complicated PC-fare.

If you're interested in voting make sure you get your say in at their website before February 15th, with the results set to be announced shortly afterwards.

The MMO world is chiefly dominated by Blizzard's sprawling World of Warcraft, with its latest expansion Mists of Pandaria, shifting 2.7 million copies in its first week on sale and bumping subscriber numbers to 10 million.
