Everything about the build up to this game reminds me of every other MMO that has come out since WoW and failed. It's always the media going "how amazing is this" because they go to some controlled event and are told by the developer why this and that feature are so innovative. Then you get to play the game and realise the smoke and mirrors behind that feature and realise it isn't so great. I bet this "dynamic" content isn't so dynamic when the game is released, people get to play for longer and get bored and see patterns in it. PC Gamer even said it seems rather scripted in their playthrough of GW2 and didn't seem that enthusiastic about it.

Everything is warning me off like the horrible choice of races, I think they all look like they came from an Asian MMO such as AION, Tera, Arche Age or Lineage etc. They have that horrible rabbit looking race which annoys me, it's like what Final Fantasy does with some small midget race to try and be "cute" because I guess the culture over there loves that stuff. Then you have how you teleport all over the world, which really breaks the immersion for me and just feels more like a game than a world. You had them stupid looking teleport doorways which I don't understand why they're a colour in  wall.... looks more placeholder to me. They could just have a doorway where you can see into the next zone so it feels a bit more immersive. 

The worst thing of all is I thing all the classes really bland, I've watched countless videos of them all and everyone praising them for being so amazing and unique and yet they all sort of look the same. I mean without the "trinity" they all do the same thing and they don't really look all that unique either. When you play TF2 you even have a trinity and every character is really unique and sticks out. You have your favourite class but you love to play them all because they all have their own personality and are really different. You have the DPS classes, the tank classes and the healer but the difference is you don't need the trinity to win because it is twitch based so it requires skill to win. 

Every MMO where I've found the classes to look really bland, I find that I don't like it. I just end up levelling 4 or 5 characters to level 20 before realising I hate them all, they all feel watered down or the same and just get bored and quit. The best MMO for classes was WoW, every class felt so unique, so fun to play and they all looked different, you could tell what class someone was playing just by looking at them in a split second. I found myself playing every class because I loved them all and not because I was struggling to find one I liked.

There are no mounts which are something everyone likes to get, they're the ultimate loot and running around everywhere is so much more fun with a mount. There is no open PVP either, it's all battleground based like SWTOR was where you have them calling Ilum as World PVP when it isn't because it isn't...

I just find the whole game bland really, the story just doesn't excite me, the world just looks rather generic and the art style just looks like another generic fantasy Asian MMO. Yet I pre ordered the game because I've been waiting since 2005 for an MMO I liked, I even bought Dark and Light back in the day even though it looked like crap, people were hyping that game up massively too lol. 

Guess I'll see on Friday, though I bet I'll hate it and it'll be more money down the drain.... only good news is the login screen is nice lol. I hope I eat my words and it's the best MMO since WoW. It's just all the fans as well saying how amazing it is that makes me think even more that it isn't. Every MMO it's the same story where either they're excited to be the only ones in beta so they feel part of a club and have to defend it or they believe the media hype who only get to see it in controlled bursts. They always drive players away as well when they claim that everything they say is wrong.

Like I said I hope on Friday I'm eating my words.

Still there is nobody who force you to follow this game and give into hype or not, so whats your PROBLEM then?

You can watch plenty of gameplay vidoe's to form your own opinion about this game and read up previews if its something to your liking you go for it other wise move on seek somewhere else, so its up to you and ONLY YOU buying game and play it or  dont buy it and MOVE ON.

Its so SIMPLE why do you people having hardtime with new upcomming games is BEYOND me.

I am pretty sure its not bad.. but who wants another fair pvp game with some battle grounds. Questing is all nice... but its limited till the end game.

I want a more dynamic game with open world pvp and some thrill to it. Hopefully at least Tera can give us that.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

This is not HYPE. People have played it. Independent game reviewers (not media sites)  said it is good and it lives up to its promises. HYPE is what you would say about the so called "titan" or the "elder scrolls mmo". No news whatsoever about them and already people are screaming like 12yo schoolgirls. 

I repeat: This is not hype, it's word of mouth, and it's a result of the game's very good reviews from seasoned people. If you are not well informed about the game, which the majority of you people who create this kind of crappy threads, do not go on a rant like "im still not convinced". It sounds very ignorant and you make a fool of yourself.

There's a second way to vote, if you can't do the homework that truly intelligent excercise of the franschise requires.  Find a well-meaning idiot, ask his opinion of the candidates, and vote the opposite way.  At the very least, you cancel out his vote.

People often come to this site in the hope that some magic beans will save them from consequences if they don't research their own titles...and to troll, of course.

Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

- nah, everything is different. dynamic events, WvWvW (DAOC style), no gear grind, pvp-centric. everything.

Everything is warning me off like the horrible choice of races, 

- GW world has its own lore. Sylvari are different enough from elves, and Asura are different enough from gnomes to be called unique. Charr and Norn havent been done before. look pretty interesting to me.

The worst thing of all is I thing all the classes really bland.

- this is totally subjective. personally, i feel every class is super interesting, and this system is the best thing for gaming in a long time

There are no mounts which are something everyone likes to get

- most gamers actually dont give a hoot about RP. GW2's world is easily accessible, and immersive as is. no need for mounts. also, no mounts = more pvp.

I just find the whole game bland really, the story just doesn't excite me, the world just looks rather generic and the art style just looks like another generic fantasy Asian MMO.

- if u wanna see bland generic Asian, look at TERA. GW2 is anything but. again, subjective

Like I said I hope on Friday I'm eating my words.

- you will

We will see tomorrow ;)


With all due respect to our illustrious evil science officer, I think its going to take longer than that. The new game smell alone will last it 3 to 6 months. That stuff is powerful. You can spray that stuff in a kids face before giving him a root canal and he'll tell all his friends how cool a root canal is and they should get one too.

Does that really represent if a game is good or not or exposes short attention span?  What? They supposed to pour fun into your hands while you sit there?

They give you a world. Play in it.  There are never boring things.  Just boring people.


Please don't fanboi in a reply to me. You forfeit all credibility when you do.

I haven't posted at all about whether GW2 is good or bad, because I haven't played it. But I know there will be tons of kids that play the first 3 to 6 months and tell everyone how its the greatest and then spend the next 6 months telling everyone how much it blows.

All you do in that post is look like someone willing to defend GW2 with no experience. Do you know what that is? Promotion based on ignorance. It's faith, and the worst kind.

Based on your rabid defense of something you haven't experienced, I am guessing you'll be a part of the bi-polar 3 to 6 month euphoric high and 6 month hateful crash afterwards crowd.

 

How would I know what FANBOI is to you?  I cant read your mind.  Perhaps you should start off your response with trying to understand the context of what I was saying rather than accusing.

I understood your point. Ill repeat mine.  Having kids saying it blows doesnt really tell me anything other than they lost interest.  What I would be akin to listening to is what about the game they didnt like.  Why?  Because it might just turn out that I enjoy what they dislike. Maybe it takes too long for them to level. Or they want to raid.  Or they want tiered gear.  Just saying something sucks doesnt speak to the quality of a title.

No one is saying if GW2 is good or bad. Or at least Im not.  Im saying Im excited about the prospect of playing something different closer to my taste.  No ones really played the game because its been under wraps.  Tommorrow is the first real "public" like beta and like I said in another post will be the first to say if it doesnt meet my expectations and WHY I feel so.

How can I defend something I havent played?  Please cut and paste something I wrote that says I defend the gameplay.  What I am saying and I think MOST are saying is that there is reason for there to be HYPE=Excitement about this game.  Just because you dont believe it or dont want to does mean it doesnt exist.  And it doesnt mean Im a "fanboi"   A Fanboi means you defend the game under any circumstance even when proven its broken. 

Im just excited to play this game because it looks FUN. More so than anything I have played.  If its not as fun as I expected?  Ill tell you that too.  Would that still make me a fanboi?   Stop with the labels.

My response wasn't a defense. My response to YOU was a question of if a person stops playing GW2 in six months as you stated is that a sign that its a bad game or a sign that the person (or KIDS your words not mine) had an attention deficit.  Which ties back to my earlier point in this post that you need a WHY or reason in order to defend a position that the game will be bad/fail/horrible//<insert your internet term here>.

And to your last smarmy remark. Ill be out of GW2 the minute I dont find it fun. Like every other title I have dropped in the past. I dont have to wait an obligatory 3-6 months.

Nothing Fanboi here. I just play games.  All of them.  Then stick to the ones I like.

How about you?

well it convinced me I don't want to play with the community,  game could be excellent but in MMO's community is a large part.  But that is just me and my opinion.

you're basing gw2 community off of mmorpg.com in that case every mmo has a terrible community, i see guild wars 2 as having one of the best. pity you are too immature to look passed silly comments on forums.

Sorry,  I guess it is just that you took over MMORPG with tons of threads about a game you have not played yet(talking about prior to the beta) and I shuddder to think what it will be like after the beta,  any threads against this game are either flamed or locked into 1 or 2 anti-threads.  This is not the second coming of Jesus, it is just a game.  I also have to comment on the "It'll kill WoW comments - been said before, much as I dislike Wow it ain't been killed yet.  I see very little difference between the fans of GW2 and those I encountered in WoW and who are the reason I do not play WoW.  Now this is my opinion, I value community and what I have seen here tells me that GW2's community is not one I choose to play with.  That you chose to flame me over my opinion of the community pretty much reinforces my view of it.  This is my opinion. edit: oh calling me immature because I dislike the community here is pretty immature.

Eep, I hope the Pope accepts my collect call, too!

Life is change. MEANING: your experience in life is ever changing.  It's a phrase I have seen many times.  Defensive mechanicsms to "avoid change" due to fear of change tend to be neurotic.  You can't avoid change so learn to deal with it.

You don't understand the definition of hype. It doesn't matter if it is true, it doesn't matter if it is from experience. ANY positive word of mouth prior to a product becoming widely avaialble is hype.

People have heard the new band's CD and they think it is GREAT <- HYPE

The critic reviews are in on the movie opening on Friday and they say the action scenes are trippin! <- HYPE

The beta testers are leaking to the forums everything about the game is true and its going to be wild fun! <- HYPE

 

Hype sucks. It's just a whirlwind that makes people feed off of anticipation. It's not only when the good news is a lie, it's also all MASSIVE OVERKILL OF POSITIVE INFORMATION. this is the part that sucks. the MASSIVE part of it. Logging on and seeing how GW2 will blow everyone away is great. Loggin on and seeing that EVERYDAY for 16 months, blows.

'Sandbox MMO' is a PTSD trigger word for anyone who has the experience to know that anonymous players invariably use a 'sandbox' in the same manner a housecat does.


No game is more fun than the one you can't play, and no game is more boring than the one you've become familiar with.

I'm not trying to hate or troll, but I honestly disagree with just about everything the OP said in the first post. Absolutely everything.

I hope you feel better about it once you've tried it.

I repeat: This is not hype, it's word of mouth, and it's a result of the game's very good reviews from seasoned people. If you are not well informed about the game, which the majority of you people who create this kind of crappy threads, do not go on a rant like "im still not convinced". It sounds very ignorant and you make a fool of yourself. 


I think we've beat this to death already...verdict: you're incorrect

No, he's pretty much correct. I can say with full confidence that this game is not over-hyped. Everything promised is being delivered.

well it convinced me I don't want to play with the community,  game could be excellent but in MMO's community is a large part.  But that is just me and my opinion.

you're basing gw2 community off of mmorpg.com in that case every mmo has a terrible community, i see guild wars 2 as having one of the best. pity you are too immature to look passed silly comments on forums.

Sorry,  I guess it is just that you took over MMORPG with tons of threads about a game you have not played yet(talking about prior to the beta) and I shuddder to think what it will be like after the beta,  any threads against this game are either flamed or locked into 1 or 2 anti-threads.  This is not the second coming of Jesus, it is just a game.  I also have to comment on the "It'll kill WoW comments - been said before, much as I dislike Wow it ain't been killed yet.  I see very little difference between the fans of GW2 and those I encountered in WoW and who are the reason I do not play WoW.  Now this is my opinion, I value community and what I have seen here tells me that GW2's community is not one I choose to play with.  That you chose to flame me over my opinion of the community pretty much reinforces my view of it.  This is my opinion. edit: oh calling me immature because I dislike the community here is pretty immature.

Odd you're still here hanging around with us then. However, it's of course your call. You'll be missing out on a great game should you choose not to play.

You don't understand the definition of hype. It doesn't matter if it is true, it doesn't matter if it is from experience. ANY positive word of mouth prior to a product becoming widely avaialble is hype.

People have heard the new band's CD and they think it is GREAT <- HYPE

The critic reviews are in on the movie opening on Friday and they say the action scenes are trippin! <- HYPE

The beta testers are leaking to the forums everything about the game is true and its going to be wild fun! <- HYPE

 

Hype sucks. It's just a whirlwind that makes people feed off of anticipation. It's not only when the good news is a lie, it's also all MASSIVE OVERKILL OF POSITIVE INFORMATION. this is the part that sucks. the MASSIVE part of it. Logging on and seeing how GW2 will blow everyone away is great. Loggin on and seeing that EVERYDAY for 16 months, blows.

I dont think Hype sucks.  And I dont think hype can 'make' people do anything.  I think it is a social engine of excitement that can feed upon itself but its up to the individual to evaluate it. Determine if its true or makes sense (to you).  And yes I do believe it influences people, but I have no control over that no more than I could read someone's mind.

Saying GW2 will blow everyone away - yeah, I throw statements like that right out the window.  We dont know. But I can see where the comment is coming from.  And I guess that aspect of hype I dont particularly care for, but also dont know how it would/could be stopped.

I think the metrics here is simply showing how BIG of a game this is expected to be.  Personally I like that feeling and I evaluate that to mean this is something I want to learn more about.  It also makes me question why TERA or TSW dont have the same excitement?  Its interesting where public opinion sways.  What is GW2 "hyping" that the others arent?

Just because I like the Hype=Excitement. Doesnt mean I feed into it.  As a software architect myself I know exactly how software can EASILY fail to meet the expectations.  The key is to understand what you are looking for the product to deliver, then to be realistic about its execution of that delivery.

I expect to have fun with Dynamic Events in GW2.  But I also know they will eventually repeat and show the same event again. Why should I hate/denounce the game due to that known limitation of software? I would miss out on what they were trying to deliver.

Also if you had the power - what would you put in place of this 'HYPE?'  - Trying to understand how you have fun without excitement.  But that could be just me.
