GW2 was better overall, but Neverwinter is still alright.

They are impossible to compare, tbh. But they have one thing in common: both are ultimately disappointing.

They are clones.  This means they are exactly the same.

 

The one video that I have watched stated there wasn't much difference between the two.   NWN combat is a bit better if you want a real dodge mechanic.  This made it a bit more fast paced.  There are huge class balance problems with the game, but most games have this at the start.

Even without the cash shop shenanigans, GW2 is esily better in everything with one possible exception: player made content....which currently is being abused by the playerbase to create zones that award massive exp/hour or massive items/hour, so its a double edged sword.

 

NW has so many critical bugs its almost sad, and many of them involve the systems that deal directly or indirectly with real money, like the AH or the mail, so people are LOSING REAL MONEy due to the bugs, with no response or even acknowledgement from the devs so far

 

now, since this is a PWE game, it just isnt bad, it will STAY bad, and the monetization will become increasingly more malicious with time.

 

PWE games are white collar robbery.sadly for all the NW fans, this one is no exception

Well every 11 year old girl could write a better story then GW2 has. It really sucks hard.

In the end it comes to what games has more and most fun content.

Agreed about the story telling. But that could be said for most MMOs out there.

In my opinion the best combat in an MMO still belongs to TERA (its one shining virtue). In terms of combat I'd say NW is slightly better than GW2 due to the holy trinity and because NW has higher requirements for player skill (reflexes, dodging).

Here is my ranking of action MMO combat:

Tera > NW / Vindictus > GW2 > Raiderz

I actually found GW2 quite enjoyable, even though past you Race the Charr responses really didn't make sense as they are suppose to be a war like race.

However Neverwinter is downright autrocious.  No dpeth or immersion or impact or choices... just horrible.  I was expecting at least some sort of story and greater scheme of things but got absolutely nothing of that.

Like someone said GW2 is polished and NW..yeah. NW is one of those F2P where they make sure you know its going to take REAL money to get anything. What bothers me is when a company suckers people into paying $200 for a game that all can see is no where near what it should have been.

Your hard pressed to find anyone saying "OMG that was the best $200 I ever spent!".

I mean come on its 2013 does ANYONE expect something good to be launched anymore? Like another new mmo coming out and 2mil to make it happen when we know it takes a good 30+mill to make a nice one.

Stop being taken in by some nice video. Take X-Plane, watch the video look at what they say is in the game you get. Wow looks awesome. You now go buy it and install 56g. The starting airport is very nice got planes taking off the air chat going crazy. The farther you go you see nothing is like the video. Almost no airports nothing like the video at all. 

This is what alot of mmos do now. They show you a cute video promise to make AWESOME changes and YOU..yes YOU could the one standing out for $200 you can have what most will only dream of.

So yes GW2 is better..hehe.. NW is fun just going to take a few years to polish it but as you play you see its already looks dated. I did notice some settings in INI that you cant turn on in game. This helps a little.

Yes, I also enjoyed leveling my char in GW2. After getting to max level and crafting my exotic gear I lost interest. There was nothing left to do.

As for NW: I am playing a cleric and am still level 30 (of 60). On first glance the skill system appears simple but there really is some depth. The amount of skills you have and can use is quite low but the feat choices drastically changes your playstyle. In comparison I'd say the amount of choices of GW2 and NW seems similar.

What GW2 does a lot better is hide the cash shop. NW is just horrible in this regard. The game is designed in such a way that you either pay up now and get everything or grind for months if not years. You also see reminders to buy in the cash shop virtually everywhere. Add to that about 7 different ingame currencies and the chaos is perfect. It's the ideal setup to scam naive players (nightmare boxes anyone?).

The cash shop in GW2 can be more or less be ignored by those that dislike them. The one in NW can't.

Remember that GW2 has a very effective dodge system as well. I'm not sure it should be used in this comparison. 

I have played both and GW2 has superior combat imho.  Overall I am sticking with GW2 as a better game. I do love the foundry system in Neverwinter and if anything keeps me playing it is that!

Death is nothing to us, since when we are, Death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.

I agree with your last paragraph totally. When I'm playing Neverwinter I"m using the mindset that it's a single player game just like NWN and the people around me are a bonus. If I try and keep up with the other players I'm going to spend money.

Death is nothing to us, since when we are, Death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.

Asking which game is better, x or y on a forum, always ends well.

This will probably be a unfair opinion/comparison since i spent around 2 months in Guild Wars2 reaching max lvl vs 2 days in Neverwinter reaching lvl 10 but here it goes.

Graphics

This is actually alot tougher than it first apears it really comes down to prefrence. Guild Wars 2 looks good,very good with a more realistic approach to everything while NeverWinter seems to have gone with a more Cartooney WOW look. Personally I'm one of those who likes a Video game to look like a video game and not a replica of what i see when i walk out the door. Despite my personel tatste it would be insane to give the edge to Never Winter

EDGE: GUILDWARS2

 

World/Exploration

This one is easy, Guild wars 2 is far superior in terms of exploration and world design. Neverwinter is heavily instanced and on rails even worse so than SWTOR. Keep in mind though Neverwinter is not your typical MMO its more of a DUNGEON CRAWLER expierance than a traditional MMO, Regardless 

EDGE: GuildWars2

 

Combat

This one is not contest for me, Im sure alot will disagree but NEVERWINTER in my opinion is FAR SUPERIOR than GW2. As a matter of fact NW is even better than Tera's combat. The action is fast and very addictive, combat feels smooth and very reliant on player skill, Love the fact there is built in dmg-healing meters that display after dungeon runs. Sure there are much less skills to choose from than other MMO's but to me this is a huge +. Guild Wars 2 combat is overhyped, Its a constant kite fest and just feels very detached with no sense of weight to dmg unlike Tera & NW.

EDGE: Nevewinter

 

Story

They both suck but Never Winter has this little thing called the FOUNDRY which allows players to create there own quests and Dungeons, FREACKIN DUNGEONS!!! How cool is that

MAJOR EDGE : NEVERWINTER

 

Overall/Fun

NEVERWINTER- Again this is probably a little premature to declare NW over GW2 considering iv only spent 2 days in NW vs 2 months in GW but Neverwinter is a blast to play . I havent even scratched the surface of the game but the combat is just to addictive "for me" to put down. 

 

I would suggest anyone considering Neverwinter to give the game a go ONLY if you are not stuck in the traditional MMO mindset and that goes for both themepark & sandbox which this game is neither. Neverwinter is some sort of hybrid themepark-action rpg multiplayer dungeon crawler with a quest/dungeon designer which throws in some sandbox, in a sense.

dont let people fool you who claim to have plaiyed neverwinter while they clearly havent and are just guild wars 2 fans...claiming you need to spend money in neverwinter is nonsense - sure its convenient. nevertheless i got to lvl 60 without spending a dime (today). i played both in closed beta, neverwinter even in alpha...i enjoy neverwinter a lot more than gw2 which i thought quiet boring regarding its pve (altough it has the better pvp)...the main differences why i enjoyed neverwinter better is the combat syste and how it "feels" (its just fun whereas gw2 becomes boring to me after 2 hours), the lore and environment (i just dont like the gw2 lore particularly) and the feeling i get when  i run through a dungeon with my party.... gw2 is certainly the more "polished" game and has more production value, but i just didnt get warm with it and neverwinter just fits my bill....i just damn enjoy that game

I'm guessing this is a joke thread. NW is better at being small, simple, linear and aiming in combat. GW2 is better at everthing else.

Silly question really. To me? Neverwinter by leaps and bounds, though it doesn't help i feel GW2 is extremely lack luster. It makes it a rather one sided question for me.

 

Still both have their pros and cons and I can never really believe in the 'which is better' argument'. The most you can get is an opinion off it, even if listing out flaws in the end its up to the player which is better.

Stupid question but.. Neverwinter has a dodge mechanic? How does it work? I saw nothing in the tutorial and I haven't found any way to dodge??

That's one of the things I like least about it, if I'm mid swing when an enemy starts a cast, I physically can't get out of the red zone in time - in GW2 you could dodge out.
