I have it too....."GW2 Effect" or as I'd rather call it "Any Game I'm Anxiously Waiting On Effect."

I need a game to play between now and GW2 release, but the old fall backs just don't sound good to me any more.  I'm done with SWTOR.  WoW might be okay, but I don't know....I've tried that a few times since I left and I always end up disgusted and logging out and deleting it, although maybe pandas might....who am I kidding....just no.  EQ2 maybe?  I don't know, not even THAT oldie but goodie sounds good now. :(

Does anyone have a SERIOUS suggestion as to a game that MIGHT be original enough to hold my attention between now and GW2 release?  It needs to be a game I can buy online and I'm not sure that pay to play or free to play really matters to me.

Even LotRO sounds blah.  Is DCUO any good...it's one I've never played....or STO?  TERA just rubs me the wrong way, I hate the graphic style of it and the animations.  Just an opinion, nothing more, nothing less.

Is there ANYTHING out that warrants a look or that I haven't already played into the ground?  Maybe it's time to buy Skyrim?  I have D3 pre-ordered at Gamestop, but I'm not sure I want it anymore. Seems to me that they've taken all the Diablo out of it.

If u have played just games like WoW or eve, then yes, i guess gw2 is something new for you. But for really a lot of people is just more of same, even the maps in some way is like warhammer, i mean in war u have marked in the map all the PQs, but to find them you need to explore the map 1st, gw2 have the same system, but from what u saw to explore the map u have to find a scout (is on the map also) and then u have hearts all over the map to show you where are the DE, exaclty like war. Im not trolling btw, is what i saw after playing the beta, i mean for some people gw2 is something new, but for others, is just more of the same, Is all about what is your experience playing MMOs.

If you feel like you need to state that you're not trolling, odds are that you are. Just saying.

I can't play any mmorpg's after playing the BWE, none are worthy! So, I am playing Legend of Grimrock on old school settings. I have the graph paper and mechanical pencil out!

I like DCUO, it has a really fun combat system and the F2P portion of it is not as painful as some other pseudo-F2P games (AoC, LoTRO, etc.). I play it from time to time but after playing GW2, I just don't have any interest in playing it.

Basically, I'm keeping myself entertained by playing Pokemon Liquid Crystal on my phone. It's a fan-made version of Pokemon Crystal with updated graphics and lots of added features. It does require a Gameboy Advance emulator. Also, Skyrim sometimes.

+1 to this. Legend of Grimrock is an awesome game.

No, bc from some people point of view, if you dont think that gw2 is the best game ever you are trolling. thats why i need to say ¨im not trolling¨ but is just pointless i guess.

The best way to travel is by means of imagination.

That's why I'm here hitting F5 to read things other people are saying about GW2 on here because it's more fun than playing other games most of the time.

More than ten minutes into something and whatever lackluster qualities the game has has me bored and listless.

"There are two great powers, and they've been fighting since time began. Every advance in human life, every scrap of knowledge and wisdom and decency we have has been torn by one side from the teeth of the other. Every little increase in human freedom has been fought over ferociously between those who want us to know more and be wiser and stronger, and those who want us to obey and be humble and submit."

— John Parry, to his son Will; "The Subtle Knife," by Phillip Pullman

Don't attack his highlighted post because he's stating a counter-opinion to that of the OP. The OP's post wreaks of over-the-top fanboism & hype pasted on the sides.

I don't mean to be rude, but threads like this make the fans look REALLY bad. I cringe everytime I see "GW2 is the next WoWkiller!" type threads, or "GW2, most innovative game ever!" etc etc.

The same threads LIKE THIS ONE were spammed all over the SWTOR section in beta & in the first month of release. Please, we really don't need more threads like this :|!

I have some weighty critique for GW2, especially concerning the so-called 'open world', when it's really a bunch of square zones you've got to load into. I don't like that. It doesn't feel like an open world.

Another problem I had was the lack of immersiveness in PvE or just wandering about, it felt like I was playing a game rather than feeling like I'm in a fantasy world. However, WvW was immersive. Five hours of pvping felt like an hour. That was really enjoyable.

Other problems I found were the camera control was very limited, you can't even zoom into first person. No toggle for walk or no-smart camera. The list goes on and on.

 

But obviously the good things about the game outweigh the bad. And I do have to admit this seems to be a well put together MMO. We'll have to find out in the long run.

I believe given some time they will fix or implement these things, its still early in the beta, but as far as the PVE i have to disagree I felt inclined to click mountains and hills look in every cave and crevice, its like when vanilla wow first came out all over again I want to explore everything, and being someone who role plays while playing the game this world is gonna make some amazing RP sessions

 

 

and I too am suffering fromt he guild war effect

There are times when one must ask themselves is it my passion that truly frightens you? Or your own?

My 2 brothers and i loved the game. it's ran great for us. No crashes only 1 chat bug out of 3 days, and relog fixes everythings. This game will be the game of the year. GW2 is the ONLY fun game in the market that not a wow's clone game, we'll be playing in the next beta ( soon, i hope ) with alot of friends. Hope to see u all in game.

 

ps: Why are there so many hate threads about gw2? is it cool to hate everythings? it's must be cool to hate life, gw2, air, foods.

Its to counter punch the nauseating fanboi posts from the GW2 sales reps here going overboard....The Game is nothing NEW......Face it.....There are only so many ways the keyboard/mouse/controller can be utilized in a 2d/3d computer game...Other then jacking in (Strange Days ref.) Its going to be more of the same old same old.....I predict that sometime in the near future you people will realize this and be less inclined to jump on the bandwagons you hitch yourselves to.  Don't worry, like women(or men for the ladies on here) , another one will be around shortly.......

If you honestly don't see what this game brings to the genre, you obviously have not played it. I'm not going to try to explain why you're wrong, it will be a wasted effort but needless to say, you are.

I played it and saw nothing new that hasn't been done in GW1 or other games......You can mix the leggos into different patterns all you like and delude yourself into thinking you have something new, but all you really have is leggos.....  Play more games and you'll see......

guess you didn't enjoy lego either, after all, they were just bits of plastic ~ no matter what you made with them

For me, the "GW2 Effect" = the "DAoC Effect."

 

Dark Age of Camelot was my first MMO back in 2002. Partly because it was my first MMO, but mostly because it was an awesome MMO, I always got this "feeling" when playing it. Like I could really lose myself in it. RvR is the greatest thing ever put into a MMO. Huge zones which you're required to explore vs being lead by a leash (hardly any questing in DAoC), finding the next sweet camp of yellow mobs to kill, etc. I loved it back then.

 

GW2 has the RvR. GW2 has the non leash-lead exploration, albiet WAY better with DEs, GW2 gives me that "feeling" that DAoC did, that feeling that NO other MMO has been able to do since.

 

I've pretty much played them ALL folks, you name it, I've probably played it. GW2 is LEGIT. 

 

There is no more 'hype' for GW2. It's been played, it's been tested, and proven. Now that I've played it for around 30 hours over this weekend, I really don't know what to play. I've decided to play games completely removed from the MMO genre until GW2 comes out. I beat Mega Man X5 today, and most of the way through Mega Man X6. I still have an active subscription to DAoC, I MAY try to play that again. But I've got the itch, fiending for some smack, need my GW2 fix!!

Well, GW2 is not that amazing sandbox so many of us on these forums are hoping for...  Nor is the details perfect (but it is a beta afterall)...  But compared to other MMORPGs at a similar time in beta, it is superior, and I am suffering from the GW2 effect.  The combat, the WvW, the fluidity of the quests.

His argument isn't far off from saying all games are programmed, and therefor are all identical. Rationalizing at it's finest, lol.

You played the game for two days and "it's been tested and proven?" Seriously, any mmorpg 101 will tell you to wait before posting an informed opinion at least before the first month of gameplay is over, or even better, the first three. Right now everything is obviously shiny and new and the excitement over the new game will overshadow any problems or long term issues.
