I'll stand up and be counted there. I only played GW1 because I got excited about GW2. It was a way to connect with GW2 before betas started. I played through all three campaigns, EotN, War in Kryta and love story thingy (name escapes me at the moment). I had fun, but I definitely wouldn't consider it one of the best games I've ever played.
I'm a grumpy GW2 player, but I don't want it to be more like GW1. I want it to be more like the vision that ArenaNet cast before launch and more like what it was for a few months after. I want it to be more like that immersive, explore-y, organic MMORPG they described and I experienced early on than the checklist focused, timer drive, repetitive, carrot-chasing MMO-as-usual it has been gradually evolving into since then.
