Do you think I should make a review of this game? At least the parts I actually played?

I guess it would probably be more like an impression huh?

Should I finish/actually start my Cataclysm Review first?

well review would be a lot better than the OP imho.. although overall i'm going to assume it will read very similar to spocks so probably sort of pointless but it's your time so really up to you..

Well, reading your earlier post about terraria makes me know what you wanted in a game and then makes me wonder why you play mmorpgs. It's like driving a car and complaining it can't fly. Mmorpgs are what they are. 

Also, if you wrote about cataclysm it would be outdated and very bias. No offense but I've seen you do a lot of wow bashing which could be summed up with you being bored of the game. I don't think that would make a good review.

Even though my post history may suggest otherwise, I think I can suppress my bias just fine when it comes to reviews.

 

Oh, and what exactly do you mean by what I wanted? I know what I want, but I want to hear it from the POV of an outsider. It makes for an interesting read and gives me insight on how others see me.

Before I continue, let me say this:

I never thought GW2 would be some kind of MMO revolution. I didn't think it was innovative or anything like that. I knew dynamic events weren't really dynamic.

I knew what I was getting, and I feel I did get my money's worth.

Now that that's out of the way...

 

I'm not 100% sure WHY I've gotten bored of it. It's become like WoW for me; I sorta wanna log in, but I'm not able to bring myself to do so.

It definitely wasn't community, since I generally almost NEVER talk to anyone unless I was really bored. I doubt it was SPvP or WvWvW, because I had never bothered to go in there in the first place.

I eventually came up with only one major reason I could think of that could have contributed to my feeling of ennui towards GW2.

Everything has a feeling of telling you what to do, but at the same time, it feels like there is no definite goal to work towards. The result is a feeling of pointlessness.

Unfortunately, I cannot figure out how to really explain this, and I really need to log off right now, so I'll add more stuff later.

 

 

It's something that a lot of people in this genre won't admit, but a LOT of us are simply bored with the format.  We keep getting excited and we keep getting bored again.  Hell, i'm not even mad at GW2, i'm just bored with every single game now.  I've gone back to playing single player games again.  I broke out my snes and went through Chrono Trigger again and also switching between Morrowind and Skyrim.

I don't speak for everyone, obviously, but i do feel that alot of others think like myself, if not silently, that this genre may have run its course.  The only problem is...I don't want to be done with it yet.  I want one last ride.  One last real, spectacular ride before i'm done.

very much agreed as someone who has been playing online games since they were all text based burnout is bound to happen.. already completely burned out on arpgs like diablo 3 and TL2 and completely burned out on FPS games.. and standard trinity themeparks as well.. i found GW2 differnt enough for me for now that I'm still having a lot of fun but yes i agree many are just burnt out

Just started my 12 hour shift :-) Not doing the same thing but yeah I bascally get paid to sit here and screw around for 99% of my shift. I go back and forth between gaming, watching movies / shows, and posting on here throughout my shift. Sometimes all 3 at once since I have 3 monitors including my new 40" so not exactly hard to multi-task and post on the forums while playing / watching stuff too.

From the moment I logged in, GW2 had this odd feeling of aimlessness to it.  I stuck with it, and got past that, to an extent.. but still, it does feel oddly pointless or something, and TBH, I can't explain it, either.

 

I dont think its just the lack of traditional questing, but more of something about the design philosophy that pervades every aspect of it.  It is both unrewarding and uncompelling, in its lack of anything to strive for.  It's all about cosmetics and achievements, with the levelling process just kinda there to slow things down.  Maybe?

When I want a single-player story, I'll play a single-player game. When I play an MMO, I want a massively multiplayer world.

I am confused. This thread has enabled you to get up enough courage to write a review , presumably less than positive? Why didn't you just write the review and add your OP 'explanation' to it?

Everything does in time. I love GW2 and yet I didn't play it since I got into Planetside 2 beta. But I still want to play it. After I get bored with P2 (I got beta invitation and after playing for few days I still bought Alpha Squad for 40$ - rorth it !).

Before I continue, let me say this:

I never thought GW2 would be some kind of MMO revolution. I didn't think it was innovative or anything like that. I knew dynamic events weren't really dynamic.

I'm not 100% sure WHY I've gotten bored of it. It's become like WoW for me; I sorta wanna log in, but I'm not able to bring myself to do so.

Let me gues. You played a lot before right ? If not then probably it's not to your liking. If you did you probably burned out. Don't force yourself - it's pointless. Play something else, do something else - before you know it you will want to play it again. I often have something like that.

I play for few weeks one game, then I switch, then I switch again, then I come back and it's like that over and over again. GW2 have no subscription so there is no hurry :-) I don't understand for example people that FORCE themselves to play game BECAUSE of subscription just to get their money worth.  

It definitely wasn't community, since I generally almost NEVER talk to anyone unless I was really bored. I doubt it was SPvP or WvWvW, because I had never bothered to go in there in the first place.

I eventually came up with only one major reason I could think of that could have contributed to my feeling of ennui towards GW2.

Everything has a feeling of telling you what to do, but at the same time, it feels like there is no definite goal to work towards. The result is a feeling of pointlessness.

Then again what IS the point of ANY MMO ? You play for weeks, months or years just to play something else without gaining ANYTHING from time you invested in that game. You have virtual character that is 100% useless. 

So ? Point of MMO is to play with others. To play with others you must interact with them. Now you are telling us that you DON'T play with others while playing MULTIPLAYER game. So why don't you pick singleplayer RPG instead ? 

GW2 is group oriented multiplayer game. It's design this way so you should do stuff in groups. If you don't then only problem is YOU.

Unfortunately, I cannot figure out how to really explain this, and I really need to log off right now, so I'll add more stuff later.

 Simple. You are bored and you need a break OR you are not MMO person. That you must figure out yourself.

Since when did forums become the place for self indulgent reviews of a game that has been out for months?

rpg/mmorg history: Dun Darach>Bloodwych>Bards Tale 1-3>Eye of the beholder > Might and Magic 2,3,5 > FFVII> Baldur's Gate 1, 2 > Planescape Torment >Morrowind > WOW (10000 hrs on main mage)> oblivion > LOTR (600 runemaster/Hunter) > Rift (230 hours mage) > Guild Wars (1900hrs elementalist) Vanguard. > GW2(1000 elementalist), Wildstar

Now playing GW2, AOW 3, ESO, LOTR

Because it more closely resembles first-gen games than it does modern themeparks.  Games lacking sufficient (or any) quest content, you are on your own for creating motivators.

Not much goal-focusing from the game itself.  "Herding", if you want the cynically accepted term.

Regardless of how you feel about themeparks 'herding' players, it works pretty well.  Break up that, long term, get-the-next-level goal into a series of small, easily achievable short-term goals.

But the games just can't win with quests.  Too many, 'hold holding, clone'.  Too few, 'omg grind',

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.

But those things depend on the person. Personally, I never cared about gear grind / massive amounts of progression in an MMO, in fact it usually takes away from my version of "fun". I find the interaction with others, especially competing vs others in PvP, fun and it is my main reason for playing any form of online games. Gear progression just hinders your being able to compete on an equal level, which means it takes longer for people like me to start having fun. For people like this, GW2 works out great.

For people who consider extensive gear grind and months / years of progression fun.... wtf are you even playing GW2 for? Its been known for a couple years that it wasnt going to be part of the game. Just makes no sense to see people complaining about lack of those things when anyone with like 2nd grade reading skills could have figured out it wasnt going to be there and it shouldnt be expected.
