I was mistaken, this guy knows it all.
Definitely not. That's why I'm saying it's really up to the individual. If you like it, play it. If you don't, don't.
You feel the need to crusade so that other people don't get fooled, and so that you, in your wisdom about what makes a good MMORPG, can steer the next generation of MMORPG developers into making a better MMORPG. And you're going to use the arrogance card on me?
When you need to "take a break" (most likely a permanent one) from a game not a month old (was 2 weeks after release when I got fed up with it), there's GOTTA be something wrong with it. Plummeting player base agrees with me. GW2 has lots of ex-boyfriends, doesn't it? A real promiscuous game.
I get it. You hated the game two weeks in, which tells me A) you probably didn't pay much attention to what ANet said they were doing with it and
you aren't indicative of the majority.
Until someone can show some real evidence, "plummeting player base" is in the eye of the beholder. Even if the game has lost more regular players than most MMORPGs two months after launch (they all see a significant drop off), it took longer than two weeks for most people to get dissatisfied with the game. Even among those who did, there are plenty who acknowledge that they got enough value out of it to be worth the purchase price.
And for the "promiscuous game", you're twisting the metaphor beyond recognition there. Of course it has a lot of "boyfriends"... it's a multiplayer game.
Which all goes back to why this thread even needed to be started. There are plenty of complaint/review threads out there. The only real answer is that internet hubris fools us into thinking that we are somehow special, and our review or criticism of the game deserves to stand out in its own special thread rather than just being a post contributing to the discussion in a thread that is already going.
Or that we are somehow a daring knight bravely shielding people from wasting two weeks and sixty bucks on the worst game they'll ever play while steering the future direction of the MMORPG industry to the holy land of the perfect MMO.
