Hi there, first time poster, long-time lurker.
At first, I wanted to wait a couple of months before buying GW2, see if at least part of the hype was justified, but after playing at a friend's during one of the stress tests, I came across a feature that was such a game-changer that it made me pre-order GW2 without any hesitation. Oddly enough, even after having followed the game for a few months now on several forums, I never saw this feature mentioned even once; maybe it's specific to the EU version?
Anyway, I'm talking about the ability to play the game in one language and instantly switch language by pressing a button (default: left-ALT). So for instance, In Guild Wars 2 I can read the quests and follow the conversations in German and re-read the parts I didn't understand but in English, all by pressing a simple toggle.
Needless to say this is a tremendous feature for people who wish to learn new languages and one I've been looking for for a long, long time. Several games allow you to change the language of the text but it usually requires restarting the game or worse, reinstalling it. Guild Wars 2 deals with this issue so seamlessly and elegantly, it's almost as if they created the feature specially for multilingual people.
Does anyone else think it's as big a deal as I do or am I nerdgasming all by myself? Better yet, does anyone know of another game that sports a similar feature?
