    A lot of posts above baffle me. Your just accepting what is happening and your just gonna take it. 

    Pauly, I feel your pain.  The only problem with your post is that you are telling the flock to unflock.  The reason mmo games are so generically dull and stupid these days is because they've become more popular.  Now they are "big money-makers" so companies/devs are looking to make the games more "friendly" to a larger base (many non-mmo and even non-RPG players), so they dumb it down, make it easy and make the combat more action-oriented in order to bring in the flock.

    So trying to make this statement here, is almost futile.  The cancer that has infected the MMORPG genre won't go away that easily.

    Currently I'm subbed to Anarchy Online and also play Fallen Earth for free.  Im also doing something as an experiment and taking a toon in GW2 to 80 while doing every dungeon available in the game.  Once I reach 80, Ill give a thorough review...the only reason im doing this is to eliminate the excuse being used that "you didnt play the whole game...how do you know?"...Im at level 16 and already ready to pluck my eyes out with the aid of a few crows.

    Im in full agreement with you though and will NOT sub to another game or purchase another game until the companies realize they won't get the customers that count.  Instead I'm trying out sandboxers (Xyson thumbs down), indy themeparks (fallen earth) and old MMORPG's....Anarchy Online.

    While I am glad you are impressed, GW2 has really very little of anything original. And before you flame that comment really think about it. 

     

    Except that there really isn't anything that is truly original.

    I'd love to see what you think is "original". I wonder if we couldn't pick it apart and find where it draws its elements.

    Guild Wars 2 does play somewhat differently than most mmo's. It's the players who can't break away and are so used to going to an area, picking up quests and rinsing and repeating. Remember, the devs originally didn't have "hearts" on the map but players complained that they were lost.

    And in the end, a quest is a quest. Feel free to go back in literature and verify this.

    Now, I can't say that I'm thrilled with the frequency that these hearts reset but I suppose that's because players would complain that there was "nothing to do".

     

    edit: oh, and I think you don't realize that the community isn't an integrated community. There are people who just started playing these games and they love them. Heck, a buddy of mine discovered WoW a year ago and he loves it. Brand new, first mmo. Not a huge gamer per se but he always liked the Warcraft RTS.

    Yeah I'm not gonna stop playing GW2. Its too good of an MMO.

    Well, not every one reads these forums.  Just a very small percent of the gamers out there do.  

    Really, we should all stop watching television until it improves if we're going to choose anything to protest.  Or stop buying magazines at the checkout until they get some good looking long haired men on the covers instead of women.  No more anime porn until it's more dicks than tits!  No more Final Fantasy until they make Manthras instead of Mithras!  I could really get into this.  My list goes on and on and on.  I'm not going to school anymore until they fix the parking lot and make it bigger!!!  I'm not driving my car until it runs on something other than gas!  Just warming up.  I've got more.

    No, I like several MMO's that are out today.  Maybe the OP just doesn't like MMO's anymore.

    If in 1982 we played with the current mentality, we would have burned down all the pac man games since the red ghost was clearly OP. Instead we just got better at the game.

    Who here would honestly eat a McDonalds value meal over a steak dinner? Sure the steak dinner costs more, takes longer to prepare, but it much more rewarding. You savor your steak dinner.. You don't just shovel it into your mouth, and hope that it passes without incident like the McDonalds. Oldskool MMO's were steak dinners. Current AAA crap is dollar menu BS.

    I haven't been waiting for any games let alone mmo's to "impress" me just entertain me and as it stands the industry is doing just fine right now.  don't get me wrong I'm eagerly awaiting the game that can/will turn the genre on it's ear but until then I'm fine with the games being made right now.

    And sorry truthxhurts I'll take the value meal any day as a pescatarian.

    Are you? That's not what I said, but if the shoe fits... Maybe you should accept that fact that the things some people like are complete garbage and those people should STFU when a game comes out with features they don't like, and play one of the hundreds of games that cater to simplistic children.

    What people like can't be quantified as garbage as a whole honestly even if some 10 million possible SWTOR players don't like the game that in no way invalidates it to the maybe 1 million who still play it.

    honestly get off your high horse and just realize what you believe simply isn't that important to the next forum goer and move on.

    The time is now to stop playing MMO's until the QUALITY and ORIGINALITY get better.

     

    I know some will disagree but I implore you to please change you mindset. YOU DESERVE BETTER! Every month more and more games keep releasing, you cant miss them they are posted all over websites with flashy images(FREE FREE FREE come play now). How many clones can there be? 

     

    We as the community have the power sitting right in our grips and we let it slip away, we continue to dish out money for these over-hyped games. The cycle will never end if we do not stand up to it. How many times can you be burnt by a game thinking "this is gonna be the best game ever", only to find out that years and years of waiting have left you in dismay. 

     

    Go out, hang with your familty, play single player games stop dishing out money to game companies that do not care about what you enjoy but only care about how deep their pockets go. Sure 6-12 months seems like a long time but HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN WAITING FOR A GAME TO IMPRESS YOU?

     

    Spread the word WE DEMAND BETTER AND WE WILL NOT ACCEPT LESS!

     

    Post your ideas, alternative single player games that can really keep your interest.

     

    On a side note I wanna thank all these games that have gone "Free to play" you have made me appreciate how cheap subscription based games truly are.

     

    If you haven't been impressed by anything so far then maybe it's you that's the problem and not the MMO genre. How is a game going to be an MMO if it doesn't have the original concept of the MMO genre? That's like saying, you want to create a "new and improved and unoriginal" sports game. Instead of using a basketball you are going to mix things up and throw a football up and down the court. An MMO is an MMO. GW2 tried their best to not have it feel like the default MMO that is out there.  Maybe you, personally, need to just step away from multiplayer games altogether and just go back to the good ol single player games with save points throughout.  It really sounds like you need some time off for yourself.  If you are so concerned about how unoriginal "All" MMO's have become then you need to step up, get a degree, get a company together, and change the way we play. I look forward to playing your first title that is unlike any other MMO out there.

    This comment won't endear you to many people, these are games ffs why judge someone based on a game they play, are you really that irrational?

    I's only yoru opinion that the garbage you play is in fact a quality product. Do you defend spam vs hamburger so vigorously? Please tell me why Spam is just as good as 100% USDA Grade A beef. You do nothign to back up these crap products except say that it's my opinion... Well the retention numbers and box sales also speak very loudly for the state of these games you love so much. People used to play an MMO for years. Now they blow through the carrot on a stick content before the free month is up, and move on to the next great failure. 

     

    As for angry I can't help but be angry when I see what simple minded consumers without a shred of common sense are doing everyday to make this once great country a laughing stock. Go watch some more Jersey Shore and tell me how great things are.

    A priori reasoning.  All the old games (that I like) were great, all these new things (that I don't like) are terrible.  

     

    As opposed to arguing game elements that you thought were better, or enjoyed more.   I'll tell you though, a lot of the things that  'old skool' types love were considered problems by the devs at the time, and many of the developments since then have been attempts to fix those problems.   I mean, what can you say about a game where you could successfully beseige a city by piling furniture up around it?  Or had classes (pistolers), that never worked?

     

    You can't budget the development of games that will attract 200K people like they were going to sell to a million.  And if the 200K won't reliably support you because of disagreements over minor elements, what then?

    If you are holding out for the perfect game, the only game you play will be the waiting one.
