     I'm not sure why people always compare MMOs to single player games and console games for value.....MMOs are a different beast imo.....We cant play alot of single player and console games for free like we can with MMOs.....ALso todays standard for a MMO is either free download with p2p (15$ a month) or f2p with cash shop where you pay what you want/like......There arent very many MMOs anymore that demand 60 bucks right off the bat to play.

So yeah... I felt cheated out of my money a bit but they gave a refund and I'm fine with it. Honestly it might not of been that amazing to me but I'd of been willing to let them keep $20 of my refund and been content for the time I had. Sure it wasn't the best experience ever but it at least ate up some time and was mildly enjoyable at times. Just didn't feel worth the $60 at all.

You feel cheated for getting your money back? You'd have been okay with the experience costing you $20, but instead it cost you nothing and because of that you feel cheated? So you got $20 worth for free, tell me who else will do that for you.

You should've done your research.........

First off my expectations was mainly about large scale PvP in WvW and I did not expect it to be unrealistically sandbox SWG....

I played alot of GW2 havent got bored........that is because I don't burn myself out and play 24/7.............

I never expected classic MMORPGS from early 2000s, I expected what they advertised, WvW and they met my expectation.........

I feel sorry for people setting up unrealistic expectations.........you wasted your money on buying MMOs without researching.

If it offends you, I didn't mean it, I'll even admit I got tricked by EAware into buying SWTOR.

im with you m8, people must feel cheated if they buy stuff that doesn't work or p2p games that promise constant huge patchs but week after week they bring nothing new to the game, only copy past old same way bored crap features,

55 euros for a game with this artwork and so many stuff, i find cheap, at least im going to complete 5 story lines with 5 diferent races.

I got 475 hours, before a nasty, as yet unidentified virus almost killed me on October 20th. Finally home and still regaining my strength. Been too tired to worry about playing so far, but may hop on tonight.

I'm looking forward to hitting at least 1,000 hours played, which will be absolutely insane value. I've already gotten more hours from the game than than the last 6 MMOs I've purchased combined, a lot more, so, yes, high value.

I really hope that people who have hit "the wall" on this game will take advantage of the B2P model and try again in the future. When I hit level 80, I stopped playing GW2 like an MMO and started playing it like an MMO/Skyrim Hybrid. Level scaling works, the game is fun and expansive. Once I stopped caring about maintaining the "most efficient" play habits and just focused on playing content I enjoyed for the joy of playing, the artificial barriers to my enjoyment disappeared. I still haven't seen 100% of the PvE world and there are many areas I still enjoy visiting even though I've been through them a dozen or more times. The ability to roam an expansive world in a free form manner definitely exists in this game!

I still maintain that this game offers more than any mmo since vanilla WoW, with that world space and content being amplified by level scaling, which expands viable content as you level, rather than your level dictating a narrow range of content apropriate for play. I think many people who can't appreciate what the game offers have just been "ruined" by the crap MMOs we've seen in the MMO genre over the last five years and might benefit from more GW2 play time, unlearning all the bad MMO habits that have been ingrained in them and learing to look at playing MMOs in a somewhat different way, (a way more akin to the way us MMO vets used to play MMOs "back in the day").

I feel cheated but not just this game but all recently released mmo's! If we sent todays gaming technology and sent it back to 20 years ago, i am positive the quality of releases would be vastly improved than what we are seeing right now. They may not have had the technology but they had the imaginations!

 I think back then the creators were more passionate and it was less about the money. I want to thank the creators from then but now i mainly have contempt for games released.  GW2 i dont have contempt. it is decent game but at the same token i am not going to be talking about this game in a couple of years time.

Because you pay for it with the same cash?

 

Hours of entertainment / total cost seems like a rational way to determine value to me.

There is no way someone could make the argument that 300 hours of entertainment isn't worth $60. From that stand point you can't be wrong. I guess people let the hype leading into cause them to lose sight of the golden rule. "If it sounds to good to be true, it probably is."

With LotRO Lifetime Account... =P

Got me 292 days (=3504 hours) of gameplay for 150 bucks, all expansions for free via cash shop points and still running...

M

Well when you look at it like that... Your argument becomes compeling ;)

Indeed, many have been 'cheated' by dozens of titles...

 

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.

This is pretty accurate.  I guess the biggest obstacle for many to overcome is that this is a very casual MMO.  So casual and lightweight that it blurs the line between coop multiplay and MMO.  

Price has never been an issue with this game.  I think people would have gladly payed more than $60 for something with a bit more meat at its core.  

It's a good fun video game but it is like night and day difference from classic MMOs (such as EQ, UO, SWG).

This is like an MMO appetizer....a poo-poo platter.  Has a little of this, little of that, some of this.  Tastes really good but it's not that filling.  More of a sampling of some aspects of the genre.

 

It's not a "poo poo platter," ya goof, it's a "pu pu platter."  But your point makes perfect sense other than being misspelled.

People expected the holy grail but instead got just another themepark  with a twist or two.

Because I paid 60 bucks for a game not worth playing.  I played about 6 hours before I couldn't force myself into another boring zergfest.  I've had more fun playing Minesweeper.

Price isn't everything. It is more about the quality and longevity of a game that people care about. Perhaps too many theme park rides is spoiling the genre in a bad way. Back in the day you played 1 mmo and you played it for years, today you play 3 mmos in a year  and chances are neither of them hold your interest past 3 months. Quality > quantity. That is just my opinion.
