I was at gamestop on the night Madden 13 released for the midnight release, I buy it every year and do a franchise with my two sons, this years Madden was a HUGE bust, they kinda destroyed franchise mode. Well, it was so bad I decided to take it back and get the $30 trade in for it (yes it was bad enough to accept the $30 loss on it).
Anyways, I remembered talking to a couple guys at gamestop that night who were there to pck up their GW2 copy and some kind of figure thing in a pretty big box. So I chatted with them about it, remembering their very high opinion of it, and the fact that I had heard it was an actual MMORPG instead of a hub instanced game like the first one, I decided to drop an extra $30 along with my new store credit and give it a try.
Best desicion I have made about a game in years!
Check my post history, not a GW faithful or fan. So take my opinion however you like, but it is (evident by my post history) coming from someone that has not followed GW2 and wasn't waiting for its release.
