"I shall take your position into consideration"

Whether the game is worth the money charged for it or not is based on subjective preferences.

Asking other people this question, you will get plenty of subjective responses which may be diametrically different.

Not to mention what others like, you may hate and the other way around.

Therefore, I consider this threat to be useless, but maybe I am wrong and this is a reasonable, well-thought-out thread.

i did not read too much about the game but i like the price plan on it as it fits with my life atm so i put the money in to it for the first beta to see if the game was what i wanted and to give the heads up to my friend about getting the game.

All in all i loved every part of the beta and am very happy with how my money went. If you have the money i would say this is a game worth investing in.

Thanks for stating the obvious, captain. I did say in my opening post "Is gw2 worth the $60 in your opinion?". I'm not asking if I will like it or not, I'm asking YOU if you like it or not (perhaps some insight from beta testing) and what you think of it.

Based solely on the limited information in your post, Id say no. You will probably feel like you wasted another 60 bucks on GW2.

 

Should be pointed out that the above poster doesn't know anything about it personally and is just here to attack the game and start fights.

 

Regarding the OP who actually liked Gw1...  I think Gw2 is currently missing a few of the key quality of life features from Gw1 or atleast a few things that were added later on in Gw1's lifespan.  But regardless, Gw2 seems already has a lot more robust Content  in it and larger better designed zones/movement.  ...atleast that's what I've gotten from the 45 hours I spent in it so far.  It will absolutely be worth retail price once we get it to Launch and do all the proper Stress testing that Diablo failed to do.

 

Regarding Diablo3....   I loved Diablo2... infact I spent last week playing it for like 60 hours in all just to relive it.   But I knew Diablo3 was going to be bad for the past year or so.  There was a lot of warning signs, especially if you followed the gaming business news about Blizzard and Activision and the path they've gone down lately.  ....sorry to hear you lost $60 to them, I think everyone who fell into that trap should have been able to get a refund.

Even if it only lasts you a month, its still more than you would get from the the multitude of 8-10 hour $60 xbox/ps3 games out there.

The PvP alone is worth the 60$ and the content in the beta I've seen so far, which is a tiny fraction of what will be in the released product.

GW2 is gonna be one of those games where there's going to be something for just about everyone. I'll like it purely because it pushes all the right buttons for me:

  • Replayability
  • Huge areas to explore
  • Epic encounters
  • Large scale pvp
  • Visually pleasing
  • Dungeons
  • Skill based combat, gear has a lot lower impact
  • FREE TO PLAY
  • It has an effin' Necromancer!
Add to that a living and breathing world with a break from the old standard mmo of quests and trinity and all I see is a game that will keep me geeking for a fair few years.
 
Sad to hear about D3, I was waiting for it to enter the sales so I didn't pre-order. Kinda glad I didn't now considering all the negative feedback i've been hearing.
 
I'd say read the boards stickies about the nitty gritty details then spend an afternoon browsing GW2 video's on youtube.

Wait for the product to show what it can do or forfeit your right to complain if it doesn't fit you.

It's $60 for loads of entertainment. Thats one night out with a date to the movies. Tell her to stay home and wash her hair next weekend and you are setup for months of entertainement. She can make you samwiches.

I'm always skeptical of this argument. Between the lines I'm reading that the stuff you've seen is barely worth it, but the stuff you didnt see...you hope to be the really good stuff.

 

that's how mmo's die. that's hype.

"When it is ready" (tm)

Take note that the BW are really BETA, they are not a marketing beta. They are testing stuff. IMHO, we will see more 3 or 4 BW, maybe we have an open beta (well, that will be the marketing beta), and the game will be ready for launch.

To the OP:

1- there is no NDA: just read wiki, blog sites and look at youtube;

2- if you like GW, you will problably like GW2, same world, 250 years later, but now you can play a charr, I remember a lot of GW players that wanted play a charr... or an asura... or a norn...

3- no sub, your only investment is buy the game, $60

4- if you pre-purchase you are paying for play the game and the BW (sincerelly, I think it is a bonus), but just remember that BW is really a beta, bugs happen.

Between the first Beta Weekend Event and the Stress Test in mid May, I logged 45 hours /played in GW2. I loved every minute of it, had no "game fatigue" and was left wanting a lot, lot more of a game for which I had just barely scratched the surface. Considering the average played time I've been getting the last few years from most games I've purchased, I think I already got my money's worth at $1.33/hour of enjoyable entertainment.

Not only does the game have a ton of content, but there is variety in waht you can do and how you can approach the game. So, even for those with somewhat fickle taste in games, GW2 offers you multiple opportunities to try something different in the hopes that you will find something you find enjoyable.

The professions play very differently from each other. The personal stories are highly varied based on race, biography choices and decisions you make during the key parts of the story. Each race has it's own starting areas full of content. So, for fickle PvE players, there are a lot of options you can try when searching for the proper "fit".

The game also features Structured (battleground based) PvP that you can participate in as soon as you finish the 5 minute or so tutorial zone for you character. You get a max level, max stat, all skills and traits unlocked version of your character with max stat gear and weapons. All characters start on a level playing field and build choice/player skill/team work determine the winners. Some players will play hundreds or thousands of hours of GW2 just doing structured PvP.

Then there is World vs. World vs. World PvP, that pits all servers against two other servers in a multi-zone wide, objective based warfare. You are scaled to level 80, but still have gear and skills based on your true level. You can level up just doing WvW if you wish.

Those are tow complete game modes aside from the expansive PvE experience where people can hope to find other alternative ways to have fun playing the game.

It's almost three seperate games in one, which with the other factors I mentioned exponentially increases the odds that any given person will find plenty here for their $60!

I don't see how could anyone beat gw2 in just 12 hours so yeah! Also, non linear story, repetition leads to new content not just harder (fake) difficulty.

However, PvP guilds really liked GW2 PvP, just look at their sites... 

And WvWvW  was at BW1 and the stress beta, they had enough time for test PvP and have a good idea how it will work. 

I just hope Anet try manage what servers that PvP guilds will be at launch, like Bioware managed TOR guilds, send that guilds to pre-choosed servers.

A cash amount does not deter a true MMORPG Champion! What is this you speak of Sir OP?

Death is nothing to us, since when we are, Death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.

Bunch of whiners in this lot... Look, all the cool kids are bashing d3 let's hop on the band wagon. Ffs, it's a game. If you rush through it, it'll be done in noe time. You take your time and you can experience it for a while. If you didn't feel like you got your monies worth it's because you didn't care enough to research whether or not it'd be a game for you. Given that we've now established the laziness of the OP, I think it'd be a fair statement to say they won't research GW2 and will be back in the forums whining again after launch.

Couldn't his question be research?

that's how mmo's die. that's hype.

If people who played PvP think PvP alone is worth $60, people who played WvW think WvW is worth $60 and people who played PvP feel that PvE is worth $60, what lines are you trying to read between? That the game is worth at least $180? Actually, when you figure in the lack of subscription fees, the game is worth more than $180, when you look at what it offers vs. other MMORPGs that have offered a life time subscription for a couple hundred bucks.

I intended to test PvE/SPVP and WvW during Beta Weekend Event 1, but I was so enthralled in PvE I never got to the other two modes. I've heard similar stories from others who have started out with one of the three primary modes, intending to try the others as well, but having so much fun with what they were doing they didn't ever get around to anything else.

As far as PvE content, the game world is massive, (it has to be one of the most expansive worlds since WoW was first launched) and there is much more content than you need to level. That would be good on it's own, but the Dynamic nature of most of the content and the promise that they will be adding more Dynamic Events for free, on a regular basis, after the game goes live means that the game almost certainly has more PvE content than WoW offered at launch.

It's quality content and the game is just a lot of fun.

That there are a variety of things to do, including three major game modes, is just icing on the cake and that variety ensures that a broader spectum of players will find something worth the box price here. Most will find the game worth much more than the $60 purchase price.

All games need hype to sell in quantity, but to be a real ongoing success, those games need to live up to the hype. GW2 lives up to it's hype. It's not a perfect game, but that's ok because what isn't perfect is still well done and the scope of the game is truly massive.
