My only gripe is that I wish we could partner up for them.  Some parts are pretty campy and corny, but in a very GW1 sort of fashion.  The story and missions in GW1 were my favorite part of the game.

Really.  After so many posters in other games beaching about lack of content, someone complaining about content is a touch on the wild side.

I was under the impression that when people talk about "lack of content", they automatically imply "lack of enjoyable content", but perhaps I am wrong there.

Not a huge issue but annoyign none the less.

 

I absolutely agree. I consider myself a very skilled gamer - and on my theif at level 20 - doing personl story quests has proved EXTREMELY difficult - that is, until I switch to my pistols and run circles for 3-4 minutes. Necessitating kiting can get a bit old, I suppose is my fear.

 

As you said - not a huge issue, but annoying.

I actually find the story quests interesting, which I couldnt say for the slew of MMORPGs I have played prior.  But completely agree with your delimma of wanting to go out explore and find other cool things.  I am an Asura Engineer and find the technology-induced story surpringly compelling.  

In BWE I played a Norn and did not like that story as much, so I think finding the right one is important too.

Agreed, the story instances are a tad too difficult.

A forum is a place where people can discuss about different opinions. So what I don't get is, how people react offended when they come to a forum and then find... well different opinions. If a different opinion offends you, what are you even doing here?

Players come for the game, but they stay for the people- Most Devs have forgotten this.

I'm very surprise with the story quest atm, it started out slow and boring but I joined the Other of Whispers and it's starting to get a lot more serious. fighting hordes of Jormag and rescueing Quaggans, I can't wait to see what comes next.

That's pretty weird.  Story quests are like the main thing - certainly the most immersive thigns for me.

They are cheesy. But its a nice change of pace. I don't mind them. I'm not even sure if  you need to do them.

 

This game is a themepark, but its a sandbox in the tems of creating your own experience. You can ignore some aspects if you like, and not be handicapped.

Instances, much less "personal storylines" should never be attempted because no matter how much money you throw at them, they'll always come out meh to bad.

They're easily the worst part of the game. If people wanted singleplayer stuff they could have played a singleplayer game.

Too bad they're poorly written, extremely easy, and extremely boring... and they cut you off from the world.

On the one hand, I like them. They're well made and give some direction.

On the other hand: yes, you are constantly zoned in and out of stuff. There you are in an overflow zone, pop into the "real" zone for a minute, then another loading screen when you go to a larger city, and then you are again in an instance for your personal quest. It's all chopped up.

well the personal story quests are the only quests i like in the game..

The hearts are basically standard go kill this go collect that quests just made super long so instead of just having to kill 5 - 10 things its more like 30.. and instead of collecting 5-10 things you need to collect 50 and you can only pick 1 up at a time.. Very very very very boring... even some of the so called dynamic events are like this.. they all seem to happen in the same spots as well and the only thing dynamic about them seem to be the time they start at least in the early stages..

 

So in comparison the story quests are actually quite fun to do. other than that the only thing to do thats fun in GW2 is WvWvW.

The AI is horrible in this game, I feel kinda embarrassed for the coders.

I totally agree with this.   

 

That said, I've found GW2 storylines far less annoying than my Bounty Hunters story in SWTOR at least.  I can't speak for any of the other classes but the BH storyline was abysmally bad.  Some guy that has about a minute screen time in the opening cutscene gets murdered and the rest of my MMORPG story revolves around me avenging him, babysitting Mako, and beating said murderer in a tournament?   Oh, of course, along the way I become the best BH in the land, marry the girl/clone robot, and fly off...wait, no, forgot space had rails.  If I spoiled any of that for you just thank me and use spacebar.

 

As far as I'm concerned, in an MMO, the less personal it is the better.  I'd much rather immerse myself publicly... Which I believe gets me back on topic with the OP.  I'd rather be out in the open world, with opportunities of meeting other people than stuck in an instance with poor AI and scripted events that are only personal because they're taking all the people on an MMO and putting them in their own singleplayer instances.

The story lines are missing the emotional connection I am so used to from the original GW games.

^ Exactly - and to top it all off the cheesy voiceover work, and some really poor writing - I can't stand the personal story quests in GW2. Worst part of the game by far.

Good thing you don't have to do these - ever. I think I got up to like 64 and just got to the point where I said.. F this. Done with personal story quest.

Way too much running around just to TALK to somebody in the main city - and then have to run 7 zones away to continue ... uggh!

Also the decision to always have your character facing somebody against a blank backdrop to listen to that aweful script ... who came up with that bright idea? It looks so cheap and lame. How about doing some flyovers over the awesome zones they built - you know showcase the game's strong point *graphics* - /facepalm

I would rather have the npc clips like in the first. Those were more interesting becuase they made use of the environment instead of some random backdrop. It also made actions believable (walking, pointing, picking up things). Rytlock saying he is grabbing something, makes no movement, then acts as if he has it sucks. Lol.

The technology is there to do that because you can see it when you pan out for Vistas.  I like your idea and really wish story cinematics were presented this way.

I'm at least glad we can group for them now.  I'm not sure if that was a bug or a change, but it's better being able to group for them.
