i think the game was actually worth my money. See, it is just a game, not a car or something that has to last 15 years.
I paid 60 bucks for that. I have paid much more money for a dinner with my friends that lasted only a few hours. I paid much more money for the train ticket to visit my friend for a weekend. I also spent 60 bucks for alcool about 4 weeks ago. Festival tickets are not cheap also, and give me access to one funny weekend (that wasn't fun, because it was rainy...).
I have to admit, i bought the standard edition. I have my HOM points, so i can get bonus stuff. Also i will pay for gems at some point after release, if i think it is worth additional money, but i will decide that later. See, i don't know whether or not this game will be enjoyable for the next 6 months or even years. This depends also on me. My life has changed since i was 16, in school and lived in a village where there was nothing to do. Now, i am 24, live in a big city, go to the university, have a job besides that that keeps me occupied during the weekends and most evenings. Also i have many friends and people around me who keep me occupied during my free time. I can not say if there is ANY game that will keep me playing for such a long time.
I hope i will enjoy GW2 for quite a long time. If this is the case, i will probalby upgrade my account at some point (lets say 6 months after release). This means that i will buy gems and spend them for
- bank space (to the max)
- inventory bag slots (to the max)
- and 1 additional character slot.
