Try GW2 when it offers a trial.

If it's not your cup of tea, you might very well like ArcheAge.

Seriously, I don't understand how you do not like the game after seeing that video.

C'mon don't you want to play with the most feared and respected mesmer in the game... FARTBONG BONERSATAN!?

I can see you playing and enjoying something more like Planetside 2 than GW2, OP. I personally enjoy both even though they are very different, gaming enjoyment doesnt have to be exclusive to one style of play, but you seem to have some problems with some very fundamental aspects of GW2's design. It is not a full sandbox and it is not an fps, and it will never be.

If you go into it with an open mind you might find some things to enjoy and appreciate for what they are, but based purely on the feeling i get from you initial post, i think it would be a longshot that you would be able to overcome your dislike for certain systems as your strongly worded language makes you seem quite adament about them.

Waiting for: A skill-based MMO with Freedom and Consequence.
Woe to thee, the pierce-ed.

The problem with censorship is ********

Unfortunately I cant see how to take this post seriously after reading stuff like this: " Let me explain...actually I am afraid I cannot put it in much words. Just look at it. Isn't it abysmal?".

How do you want to get a fair discussion going when you don't have any arguments to begin with? Glad it got reported.

I suggest you save your money, put it in an IRA account or some other account that won't let you touch it once you've deposited it.  Then every day, like clock work, log into your bank account and see if it made any money.  Do this for 120 days straight.  Then, after the 120 days have transpired, ask yourself if putting that $60 into a bank account was more entertaining than playing a game with it.

 

I'm willing to wager, with absolute certainty, that having played the game, was far more entertaining in the long run.

 

If you don't trust the hype now, why would you trust the reviews later?

 

Have faith that you will atleast get $60 worth of enjoyment out of it.  If you can't see that potential just looking at the videos out there, then you probably would never like the game even if all the hype turned out to be true.

Here is your safest bet.

Wait until it goes live and find a friend that plays and go watch them play. You're asking a question that only YOU will have the answer to, so the only way to answer it is play it and see if you like it. 

A video game, like all art is very subjective. For me personally GW2 is a huge amount of fun. I was so expecting the betas to change my mind but they only made me more ravenous. If I had played TSW  beta I would have not purchased that game, same for TERA . I wish i had waited...120 bones down the drain.

I have only had 1 dissapointment so far, but it is because I am an ahole. It was in the second or third beta and they had the cash shop working....the featured item was a pair of aviator "cop" glasses. I was so irritated that they would spend all the time and love on the lore and environments and then feature a pair of modern looking sun glasses as viable... It pissed me off quite a bit actually, but at the same time I have stupid high standards on games and realized that plenty of people would find it amusing, and that I could live with it.

Its hard being a game addict and waiting for someone else to taste our heroine first...but its the only way.

lol nice:)

I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

If you are interested in the game, just go for it. It's reasonably priced for a new game and there is no subscription to worry about where you need to "get your money's worth" each month. And getting in at the start is typically the most fun rather than joining late. You get to grow/learn the game along with all the other newbs.

The overhyped themepark model is so easy to go into for developers because of YOU. I mean, GW2 doesn't even have open-world PvP. The PvP takes place on some magical island which is not connected in any way to the regular world. What BS. 

Thoughts?

 

 

 

according to this post, I don't think you really need any answers from this community, I think you should sway away from the genre and look over at DayZ which I am guessing more around your ball park.

The Dude abides

Of course not. Nothing wrong with waiting. I can definitely understand why. I watched enough videos to determine it was the game for me so that is why I purchased it.  I love the des. Find the world design interesting and fun to explore. Dungeons appear to be a lot fun. Can't wait to do some WvW. Hell I'm stoked.

Last few mmos I have played I enjoyed but I knew from the get go they were short term investments. This one? I think i'm going to be playing it for a long time.

1. For god's sake mmo gamers, enough with the analogies. They're unnecessary and your comparisons are terrible, dissimilar, and illogical.

2. To posters feeling the need to state how f2p really isn't f2p: Players understand the concept. You aren't privy to some secret the rest are missing. You're embarrassing yourself.

3. Yes, Cpt. Obvious, we're not industry experts. Now run along and let the big people use the forums for their purpose.

I'm going to give it a month or couple of months to see what people are saying...at least that is my plan.  You never know, I may pick it up on a whim at the last minute.

I had preordered and played in a couple of BWE's but cancelled.  It may be that I was just burned out on gaming though...so I am keeping an open mind.

Personally I hope it suceeds as I would love a good pvp game to play and I love a lot of the concepts and ideas. 

When I played though, I couldn't put my finger on it, but it felt too much like a console game to me.

Also, call me skeptical but I can't help but wonder if these forums will look like SWTOR's, AoC's, WAR's etc. etc. etc. a couple of month from now.  Remember they were all the end all and be all once too.

How is it not? Are you not pressing hotbar buttons every 5-10 seconds waiting for cooldown?

so Arenanet is now using subliminal waves in their videos to drum up business? Ever hear of the Red Scare? Yeah that's exactly what you're suggesting in this post. I mean we're sorry that you were duped into buying games like SWTOR and WoW's Cataclysm, but to be paranoid about it isn't helping you.

Hyperbole is nice, isn't it? No, if you refer to my first paragraph you will see this is a human phenomenon. ANet a good developers and have no part in this phenomenon. 

Definitely not an issue with GW2, it's an issue with you personally, you need to stop buying yourself themeparks and start playing Sandbox games like DayZ or Eve.

That is true. However, DayZ is hacker paradise and its too late for EvE

this final statement reveals the true intent of this post. I'll be glad when they close the thread.

Why would ANYONE close this thread? Why are you so close-minded? I cannot say anything negative about GW2 without people asking for a lock, and yet the GW2 praise threads go on peacefully? Yep, this is why American society is freefalling into an abyss. Nobody respects anybody's opinion anymore, and nobody can take negative criticism anymore.

That is exactly my point. As soon as people started waking up and calling these games on their BS, everyone just goes "troll, lock.". And then the game rolls around and the cynics are right EVERY SINGLE TIME.

 Correlation does not imply causation.

Also, people hated WoW and EVE, and they seem to be doing fine.

So it's not even 100% correlation.

Just because there have been a lot of crappy games with cynics and criticisms does not mean that cynics and criticisms automatically mean there is a crappy game.

OP  8/22/12 3:51:03 PM#36

Sammyeli, this is sadly not possible right now. All current MMOs have one flaw or another and any potential big "sandbox" type games are still in betas and will probably come out on 2013. 

 

Thus the point of the thread. I was secretly hoping someone would come in and counter all my points to show me that combat does in fact NOT suck. Unlike others I keep an open mind and can actually be swayed. 

 

Trust me dude, I realize the potential of this game. Like I said, most things it does amazingly well like crafting, WvW, and the environments. If I could somehow get past the PvP I think I would be hooked, thus the purpose of this thread. It is not meant to bash and troll.

Please dismiss everything good I said about GW2, and how I acknowledge it is a good game. I belittle the combat because, in comparison to other games that I have played, it is lackluster. Simple.

You are right. Usually...sometimes then. Even once is enough to prove the human phenomenon known as hype, and how deep it actually goes.

The pen is mightier than the sword if the sword is very short, and the pen is very sharp.

I thought the early 'slipped' videos looked good enough for me to enjoy. After 55-60 hours in BWEs and stress tests....I decided for myself that I really liked the game and probably would for a while (hopefully a LONG while).

Note* While I don't know very much about the very controversial 'end game', the rest is more than enough to justify my Digital Deluxe version. Money well spent, IMO.

 

I do understand folks waiting though. A friend of mine is too. If the auto de-leveling mechanic wasn't in place, he likely would have joined (albeit with the desire to wait) with me. As it is, since I can come back with my main, if I don't decide to re-roll (which I will) he isn't worried about coming in a few weeks or a month after the game opens.

 Combat does not in fact suck (For me).

Unfortunately, your problems with combat are largely coming from a dislike for flashier graphics than the realism style of Mount & Blade.

That's a matter of personal taste, and short of jamming a screwdriver up your nose and wiggling it around until vital parts of your brain have been altered enough you have new opinions, I can't imagine anybody changing your personal taste.

I'm not sure what you're expecting people to do that will somehow change your taste in gaming aesthetics. :)

You are paying $60 for population.
