I am bringning this up because of all the hate there is towards one another and towards the companies that make the games that we play, i see people complaining about how stuff should be better in GW2 yet the game is free to play, what more do you people seriously want?? the Developers owe you guys nothing, why should they justify themselves for you? and the counltess other threads about how this will fail or how long till you think it will fail or whine, whine, whine.

Not that anyone would care but it is not the state of MMO's that is turning me of the Genre but the brat like childish people who are plaguing what was once a great place to enjoy a game and socialize.

I'm sure i will get flamed for this but then again it just proves my point right?

IMO i think alot of us need to pull our heads out of our asses and be greatful for what we get, Especially if it is Free.

So this is really another "i like GW2 so everyone else should" right? Your title hints at a genuwine concern for the mmo community but it's really a stealth thread about GW2.

Again ill ask the question that has been asked a few times in your thread: which part of GW2 is free?

No my intention of this thread was  about the community, the only reason GW2 was mentioned is because it was the hottest topic on the boards at the time of posting this.

The part of GW2 that is Free is the non monthly subscription like many other AAA mmo's, Sure it has a cash shop but it is not mandatory to Purchase anyhting from there and even if you do this can also be done via Trading in game cash for gems so IF you have the time you can make Cash shop purchases without spending real Cash, And yes ok you have to make an initial Purchase of the game but thereon after that, it is Free, and everyone that has pointed out the Fact it is not Free because you have to purchase it know's exactly where i was coming from. 

And yes i Play GW2 but i would not call myself a Fanboy at all, i play it very casually so i am probably the last person to be trying to Hype it or tell anyone they should be playing it.

This website has been a garbage community for actually enjoying a game probably since its creation. If you come here you should expect to have your love of a game completely shaken with the constant whining and negativity.

Sorry not to stay on theme, but I have just learnt how bad the GW2 cash shop already is:

"seems to contain items that would be strongly desireable by the average player, such as extra bag space, an even has kick arse armor/weapons one might want to get for around $200.00 for the full set."

It is the same old story, and you will hear it again in the next major MMO starts with one. There are three stages:

1. The MMO will start with a cash shop but will only sell fluff.

2. The MMO may well end up selling gameplay altering items but thats months down the line.

3. The MMO ends up selling gameplay altering items far more quickly than the fanboys expected.

This happens every time. Yet players allow the hype train about a new MMO to blind them. As I said previously, gaming companies know that most players have a casual mindset and will leave in a couple of months. There is no point putting in loads of items to a cash shop a few months after launch. To maximise profit you fill that cash shop up to the nines at launch.

This is exactly it. Why are you even posting this here? This has NOTHING to do with this topic. But you couldn't resist the urge to pour uneducated "opinions" and "facts" down people's throats.

Oh the melodrama.  Has an internet forum ever convinced you that a game you really like is actually not that good?

I've dubbed it Perpetual Negatism because no matter the subject something is always wrong or will be in the future.

"I can feel and post whatever I want", of course you can and more power to you. However, have you ever included in your list of rants that the "community" in games is not like it used to be? That people don't talk to each other anymore? Why would they when all they expect is people complaining? Now it's true that there are things worth getting excited about and voicing your opinion can force that change. Maybe more people would join in that fight if the general negativity wasn't there. When the important stuff is what's focused on.

I, like a lot of you it seems, are awaiting a more community sandboxy type game to hit the mainstream. Before one hits the shelves I think we need to ask ourselves how we would fit that community.

Well said.

I often wonder what all the anger and impolite behaviour is really about.  It's obviously not  just about games because any forum on any topic seems to attract vitriolic outpourings at some point.

Or maybe the anger was always there but we just didn't have the internet where people could pour it all out anonymously?  Seems very sad (original use of the word) to me.

The internet has created a way for all people to vent.  Game forums are remarkabley civil compared to news forums where things like politics and religion are discussed.  Some of those posters I'm fully expecting to climb a bell tower with a sniper rifle.

Oh yes, and there's this cash shop which while not mandatory, seems to contain items that would be strongly desireable by the average player, such as extra bag space, an even has kick arse armor/weapons one might want to get for around $200.00 for the full set.

 

Free? Last i checked, DDO, LOTRO, DCUO, and very many other MMOs are free.

Oh yes, there are cash shops, but you don't have to use them. In fact, research shows that a MAJORITY of MMO players do not pay. So yeah, MMOs are free for many.

The games you listed were all sub games. A true F2P game would be something from Perfect World Entertainment and I never see anyone talking about their games.  And the reason why you see no one taling about them is because the true F2P games are poor quality compared to the sub gone f2p games.

The new Marvel Heroes is going to be F2P from day one.

However, so what if these are sub games turning F2P? They are costing no money NOW. A true F2P game is one you don't have to pay ... there is nothing "untrue" about DDO, LOTRO, DCUO ...

In fact, i *will* wait for games like TSW to turn F2P before i play.

There has certainly been an increase in grumpyness and negativity across all game related forums in recent years.  This is especially true where MMORPGs are concerned.

 

Pretty much every forum is full of  "<game name> is going to be terrible because..."

This is why I hardly ever post on gaming forums anymore.   I prefer to judge the game in person rather than rely on the opinion of someone that has only played MMOs for a couple of years and is basing their entire post on speculation and comparing everything to WOW which I have never played (pretty much everything else though).

I used to visit this site a lot however in recent years it has become the home of negative forum posts, illogical opinions and tantrums so I visit less often.

Played or Beta'd: UO / DAOC / Horizons / EQ2 / DDO / EVE / Archlord / PirateKingsOnline / Tabula Rasa / LOTRO / AOC / Champions / Darkfall / Mortal Online / DCUO / Rift / STO / SWTOR / TSW

I frequently criticise games.

The only game I can't really criticise is Eve Online because of the vision of the devs.

Most games are fun for a while, but you couldn't really 'live in them' - that's the ultimate test for me.

The problem with Eve is that 'money generating' activities can get really boring unless you are in a group.

So in other words, you need too much time to play it properly.

So even this game isn't perfect.

But DUST 514 is coming out, which should be good.

Most people avoided the actual point of the post but i'll get on with it.

 

Most MMO Communities are awfull, specially in this day and age where manners are seen as being an easy target to troll.

MMOers hate other MMOers, this is just a given, people will public harass and try on purpose to destroy other peoples fun.

 

It's alot of different factors that lead to this, but overall is just that people are ruder in this day and age, and it's "cool" to be so.

Most of the people on this site are MMO desensitized.

I criticise because I care about MMORPGs. It's frustrating to see devs "so near yet so far".

Pretty much every forum is full of  " is going to be terrible because..."

This is why I hardly ever post on gaming forums anymore.   I prefer to judge the game in person rather than rely on the opinion of someone that has only played MMOs for a couple of years and is basing their entire post on speculation and comparing everything to WOW which I have never played (pretty much everything else though).

 I don't agree with you! You can say that game "is going to be terrible because..."

After you have played MMOs for a few years, you can look at a trailer of gameplay and tell with certainty how it will play from beginning to end.

This is due to 'pattern recogniton' and realising that most games copy bits of each other.
