A little background on me
I quite (i will not speak it's name but i think we all know what I'm talking about) about a year ago and ever sinse then followed swtor, I played rift for about a month after it was released, however I dont like reading quest text so i ended up playing it as an extremely grindy game which I got sick of very quickly and quit at about level 25. Then I stuck around and am ccurrently playing tor which is okay but well below expectations. I enjoy levelling in it alot more than in rift or wow because I am actually really interested in the story, story is a recent addition to crrent mmos, which I believe both the secret world and guild wars 2 are trying to do really well? I also love a really imersive fun game which you get captivated in and just want to keep playing, tor has really done this I believe (although this may have been because of the story) However I am growing sick of swtor as there isn't much to do at end game (or content altogether) and you end up doing the same thing over and over (i dont mind end game grind but tor takes end game grind to the extreme and makes it boring). I am also sick of the boring wow style combat and wish for something a bit more exciting ( although nothing too extreme, i like combos and stuff but i played dcuo for a bit and couldnt stand how intense the combos and the clicky attackness was, I like to have skill bars with abilities which i press but i would like a game with a more dynamic way in which those abilities work).
I also generally play mmos as a tank and very rarely pvp (i am far more into pve)
So what is this thread really about
I am planning on quitting tor and am currently deciding whether to go for guild wars 2 or the secret world. What I would like people to do is read the brief paragraph about me ad mmos and try to get a bit of a idea of what I want and then give advice as to which title you believe would be best suited for me. Please add a bit of reason, and it may not be why its better for me, it may just be that this game is a better bet for anyone because...
I'm interested to see what people say and I sincerely hope some people can help me make my mind up.
The fact that guild wars 2 is free to play adds nothing to my decision as to which title to pick as being a good game trumps money in all situations and i am not short on money.
