Hey guys. OP is obviously being ironic. Thought that was pretty clear...

No. It's actually not that clear.  If that is true, that he's trying to be ironic, then he's a horrible comedian.

" This is where it is most obvious that Guild Wars 2 is just another WOW clone. The combat is just the standard repetition of hitting things, shooting things, and casting spells . . . LAME. And you do all this WITH WEAPONS. Plus, what is it you fight? That's right, monsters and bandits and crap, just like every other MMO."

"I want TRUE innovation!!! Round screens! 4d! The ability to play as a real engineer that builds memory cards for typewriters! A game that plays itself!"

Yes, his subsequent posts were outlandish and obvious. He had to compesate for his original failing. 

bet his posts made a fiew of us smile......posts that make people smile can never fail :p

 

Fair enough.

Character Creation: Just like every other MMO, Guild Wars 2 begins with character creation. You choose a race, class, gender . . . blah, blah, blah. When are MMOs going to break away from this tired formula of creating a character and then playing the game? I'm tired of it, but it keeps being regurgitated out by every game that hits the market.

Character creation could be done through doing things similar to how fallout 3 does it.
Ie start playing look into a mirror for model definition, keep going read some books for stats ect..


Cities: Like every other MMO, Guild Wars 2 has cities. I knew as soon as I saw that there were cities in this game, just like World of Warcraft, Warhammer, and Dark Age of Camelot, this was going to be the same boring formula we've seen time and time again.

Why not capital cities and towns?


Exploration: As if it were copied straight off of World of Warcraft, this game forces you to explore places to advance the story.

shrug


Story: This game has a story. Sound familiar? Every other MMO has a story.
create your own story! 


Combat: This is where it is most obvious that Guild Wars 2 is just another WOW clone. The combat is just the standard repetition of hitting things, shooting things, and casting spells . . . LAME. And you do all this WITH WEAPONS. Plus, what is it you fight? That's right, monsters and bandits and crap, just like every other MMO.

Revive the Nintendo power glove!


Crafting: Crafting is the same in Guild Wars 2 as it is in every other MMO there is. You get equipment, collect supplies, and then turn that supplies into weapons and armor and stuff -- exactly like every other MMO.

Anno 2070 type resource gathering and manufacturing.


PvP: Finally, this game has the same PvP we've seen a thousand times. Once again, it's all about players fighting other players. Nothing new here. No true innovation.

Gm's VS Player (GvP)


How can ArenaNet continue these lies about innovating, creating a unique experience, and changing the genre, when all they are doing is creating the same game we've seen a million times over?
Everything is just stardust.

I know this is a joke post, but is anyone going to list some alternatives for fun?

Yeah OP is (not so?) obviously being sarcastic. His posr reeks of it. No one can type that post and be honest about it. He hits on everything that actually makes a game a game. Leave out what he is "complaining" about and you just have a test pattern.

Just saying.

The weird thing is I wasn't trying to provoke anybody. I just assumed everyone would get it. I made it as clear as I could without it not being funny anymore. I see now that more people are in need of DarkPony's goggles than I thought.

Well I thought it was decent satire.

People get edgy on game forums. Sports forums is much easier to be sarcastic.

Problem is, I've read the very exact sort of post from people being serious when said post applies to other games.  That's why it's not very successful irony. It would be more successful if more people were exposed to GW2 and had a chance to play it.  But as it reads now, it's the same earnest criticism that I've read with regard to LOTRO, to SWTOR, to any number of MMOs post-WoW.

Well being a fan of TOR (leave me alone!) I understand how trigger-happy fans can be when someone wrongly criticizes your favorite game. It gets VERY OLD after awhile. VERY. You get sick of hearing jerks spouting shit about the game you enjoy. So you lash out.

I feel your pain on that. I think the greatest mmo pvp is actually on the forums. In fact, here are gamers in a 16 second clip.

I love Guild Wars 2. And I'll admit, the OP is basically what I see when reading posts like this. But the plan was to take the normal absurdly generalized parallels and make a version that was so hypergeneralized as to be clearly ridiculous and thus, you know, funny. As in a satire. What went wrong? How could anyone take this seriously? DarkPony! Quick! We're running out of goggles!

Frankly I have seen so many people say almost exactly the same thing in extreme non-trolling seriouness and having done so in forums for other games without even being prodded into it by a fanboy that its impossible to tell.
