Guild Wars is taking over my life.....Last night I spent 3 hours trying to do a platforming puzzle with lightning, wind, rock, and ice obstacles. Died at least 50 times.

Havn't had that much fun in years....

 

My life is over.....

    spending three hours dying on a single event is a fun time?!?!?! Talk about old school gaming I gave up that idea as "fun" way back in the days of mario and contra but glad some are getting to enjoy the launch hope they get the issues resolved sooner rather than later though so all interested can join in the fun.

    Lol... I'd take it as an indication of his addiction rather than the average gameplay experience.

    Seems like the connectivity issues are sorted now though, now they just need to get the trading post up.

    First time I hear someone saying he never had so much fun dieing 50+ times :D

    Didn't die that much (4 times total I think), but having a blast as well!

    This game is amazingly fun and addictive. I'm so glad that I am able to control it. It's hard for a lot of people, but I guess after playing 29 mmorpg's for so many years, you learn to control it easier. lols

    Hmm, its a pretty solid game but certainly not enough there to keep me away from my main MMO.  So I get to play two MMO's now, thats okay I currently have enough time for that.

    I agree, it is a solid fun game, Jumping puzzles, Riddles, Gauntlet style Acrade combat action,  and a cute Single Player RPG quest/story tack on for good measure.

     

    It is an MMO but  feels funny,  the flashy pop ups reminders, hand holding mini map,  chasing Hearts and Triangles,  The zerg rushing DEs,  almost like a cool Mulitplaywr Super Mario.

     

       It is a really fun game but as an MMO it feels abit souless,  It is a streamlined, easy play, casual, Amusement Park, with rides and carnival games.

    I wouldn't argue with anything.. but soulless? No. Sorry but this game breathes life and character. Subjective or not, anyone can see that.

    It has a lot to do with the fact that it was "challenging" but "not frustrating."  Yes, I legitimately had fun trying to do that puzzle.  For any of you who want to know which one I was talking about.... it's this one...

    @CookieTime: HOW can someone call GW2 soulless? Indeed, it breathes a lot of life and character. I don't think you have played if you say it is soulless. On your other points I can't disagree.  But GW2 has more life than any MMORPG i've seen so far. And you know what else GW2 has? Massive multiplayer. Something that's lacking from quite some (MMO)RPGs lately (SWTOR *kuch kuch*).

    You're out in the field, doing your thing (lots of stuff to choose from). And BAM, a group of 40 people doing an amazing event, running across the map. And you know what? You can join, without being PENALIZED.

    The game is challenging but it just doesn't penalize people very harshly. Minimum downtime and maximum play time. That is how MMOS should be.

    Challenge should be in the activity itself.

    Agreed, Anet always placed a lot of passion into this game, and it shows, specially in the art design.

    Yeah I died plenty of times during some of my personal story quests, this game isn't Diablo 3, most definitely not carebear easy.
  • itgrowlsitgrowls newport news, VAMember Posts: 2,951
    LMAO! that's awesome dude! yeah same here, i went on WoW and said bye to all my friends and to the game, and i went on facebook and told RL bye bye for a while while this game took over :) great stuff!

    I guess people use word carebear in their own way. Just sometime back i read in chat that GW2 is carebear because it lacks harsher death penalities and that the game is too safe.

    I personally despise this word carebear.

    I keep trying to do my personal story quests alone and 4 or 5 levels behind. I've died so much if there was an MMO heaven it would be full by now.

    Forum Rule Number One (aka egoboo for the kids):

    Every situation is too easy, because you're just that awesome.  Never skip a chance to tell others how much they need to lrn2ply.

    Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

    Just need to be 2 levels below, and they are pretty easy.

     

    Not sure how people are dieing so much, unless they are trying things way above their level, or just standing still getting bashed  Have died like twice, and one was by a training.  Move around and they hardly hit.
