It’s been out long enough and I’ve messed around with it long enough that I can safely say< "I like it."
I totally admit that I am probably one of the most casual of players. Maybe a couple of hours a week. Group when needed and I tend to avoid getting wrangled into a guild. I just like sitting back, adventuring and enjoying the world and what random craziness just might be happening where I am. So yeah, it's like the perfect game for my style of play.
Oh yeah and that whole Tank, DPS, Healer, Controller shit. Well, I don't even like it in my video games. So none of that makes it more fun. And as you could probably tell by the brief description of my style, I like to solo. Once again, it's a cool game for that.
And I know by some standards that Guild Wars 2 could be considered an old game. But crap, the crew at Areanet is putting out extra stuff. So I'm pretty sure that there's still plenty of longevity and content for this game. And no damned subscription fees. Take that Blizzard.
