Game hasnt lost that new game smell, but it sadly has gotten that refuse of whinner and complainer stench that never seem to be satisfied.
Well that's not unique to any single game
in fact, not having a complaining subculture would be unique, but sadly there is no single game that can satisfy everyone's tastes, it's all about choosing your target audience.
That being said, I still love the game, I spent about 900 hours in GW1 over a period of 6 years (early 2006 to just before launch this year), and I'm already over halfway there for GW2 in 3 and a half months, I've definitely already played my moneys worth, and will continue to. I'm just no longer fascinated with every nook and cranny of the game like I was at launch. But personally I was always an impatient gamer who only cared about my character and my end game rather than for the game itself, and GW2 has certainly changed that so kudos to Anet.
I am a bit disgruntled by the new stuff they've added since launch though, Halloween was decent but too short and inconsequential (to me at least), Lost Shores is just meh, the only thing about the new area that I like is the rich orichalcum node >_> I'm definitely looking forward to wintersday though, I loved every single one I participated in in GW1, hopefully it'll give me the same excitement here
