GameSpy's Game of the Year 2006

Gamespy's PC MMORPG of the Year -- Guild Wars Nightfall:

In broader terms, Guild Wars is extremely close to being our favorite MMO ever due to its enlightened approach to the genre. The attention that ArenaNet pays to the game's PvP experience would be embraced by the industry at large in a perfect world, and its ability to offer such a stellar product without charging a monthly subscription is nothing short of revolutionary.
