So what do the "NOT-GW2" gamers play?

eye_meye_m Notta Chance, ABPosts: 3,133Member Uncommon

I hear alot of particular people going on about how GW2 isn't "all that" and I just wanted to know what game or games are so much better than GW2.  I beleive it was GeezerGamer that had suggested GW2 was a great game for when you only had a short period of time, so maybe I should look at what games some of these more enlightened individuals play in case I want to spend some longer periods in a game.

 

Please share with us, all of your expert suggestions.

 

EDIT: Oh and please don't leave silly posts like  "Game-X is the bomb, it's way better."  We all would like to hear what actual mechanics make these games so much better.

All of my posts are either intelligent, thought provoking, funny, satirical, sarcastic or intentionally disrespectful. Take your pick.

I get banned in the forums for games I love, so lets see if I do better in the forums for games I hate.

I enjoy the serenity of not caring what your opinion is.

    Do we really need another one of these? it is quite clear you have no intention of having a discussion and just want to vent your frustration because well not everybody is in love with GW2.

    Why insult intelligence of others by pretending that you actually care for their opinion? 

    'Please share us with your expert suggestion'. I think that gives away your intentions behind this topic. Nice attempt at baiting though.

    It's not baiting. I seriously want to know what games are so far superior to GW2 because I might like to try one of them out.  I'm not an expert because I've only played 4 mmorpgs for any effective amount of time. There are alot of people with much more experience in the genre than myself so I would consider them experts.

     

    So whats the problem. Whats this game that you've got keeping you entertained?

    This.

    Not having an mmo to play doesn't make someone's opinion of GW2 any less. I have certain mmorpgs i'm waiting for, but will hold judgement for them until they're atleast 1 month old. GW2 is GW2. As far as the word "hater", if you need to identify others as that to suit your ideals better, whatever.

    What is better or not is subjective, so people can very well use any excuse they want to define what works better for them, even if it's something as casual as graphics and musical score.  I can't stand GW2 and I'll play just about anything but that game.  Don't like it, then suck it.

    Actually I think it's a good question ....my thoughts are after seeing the number of posts by some folks they just play the forums ,

    I'd be interested in their opinions and it's not  to insulting thier intelligence nor to bait anyone.

    I play TERA not because it is "far superior to GW 2" but rather because the game has some end game content where as GW 2 has almost none. The combat is more fun too and after playing the two games back to back I have to say the GFX in TERA is more beautiful.

    There's only a few actual haters in my opinion. Then there are a few that constantly say negative things for like 14 hours a day and then claim neutrality or whatever. It's kind of funny I guess. It's really hilarious when they blame the GW2 fans for raiding "their" forums and attacking "their" game for the little pushback that exists from the few amount of haters out there. Psht... it's happening because it always happens to every game. Certain users are just dicks.

     

    But overall, with such a small amount of people actually taking shots at the game, I just don't see that much "hate." I think for the most part, people are really enjoying the game and my experience in game supports that. Servers are nice and full, they are releasing solid content already and Christmas is coming.

     

    I've seen a few of the haters that play TSW and SWTOR. One plays LotRO. It's crazy to me that they see these 4 games as being so enormously different from each other as to bash any of them with such commited zeal.

    www.mmorpg.com Guild Wars 2 section. Though its like that with any mmo that has haters, on the good note this a good side mmo while playing GW 2 as my main MMO.  

    I might get banned for this. - Rizel Star.

    I'm not afraid to tell trolls what they [need] to hear, even if that means for me to have an forced absence afterwards.

    EVE is where I hang my hat.  Freedom is key for me in any MMO.  I liked GW2 for what it was but its not where I would call a gaming home.

    great! So what is it about Rift that makes it a superior game?

    I dont really think Rift is a great game to be honest but i do think its backed by a good team thats bringing an expansion out that looks promisiing. I suppose i could say its the best out there for me right now.

     

    I wouldnt say its superior. I bought it on release but never actually levelled out then ... trying it now.

     

    All in all i cannot find an MMO that im chomping at the bit to play really

    Nothing. Because nothing is more entertaining than GW2. I tried TSW, wasn't bad, not gonna sub for it. In the end, there is nothing left in the market that really captures what early MMO's did. So nothing is what I play MMO wise. I log into GW2 run 5 feet then log out pretty much now.

    Looking forward to EQnext, GreedMonger, Star Citizen... maybe. We will see. I doubt they will do any good. DFUW will probably fail but I will try it anyway.

     

    Edit: I backed the star citizen kickstarter, so I have some faith. EQ next I will try at launch regardless and make my decision then. Thinking about going back to EVE tho. It's just that I still fall asleep in warp jumps.

    Atm.. nothing.

     

    Edit: i dont hate Gw2 but imho it didn't live up to the ridiculous hype it got.

    I used the term "hater" in the title because I couldn't think of a better term at the time.  I guess I didn't want to title it "So what do all the people that have a absolute dislike for GW2 play"

    It's an obvious curiosity. If people really dislike GW2, then what is it that they really like?

    But that is the thing you do not understand. People don't choose other MMOS over GW2 because they are just 'superior'. There are so many factors. For example in case of TSW its the niche settings and slow approach towards progression, for Rift is it is amazing content updates and support by Trion,

    Let us be honest here all right? you made OP to mock the haters. Why pretend otherwise?

     Pretty much, I can't get over my character models in TERA and after about 500 hours played in GW2, there's nothing left for me, i've exhausted everything and there's no purpose so I went back to TERA as well.

    That could be anything. You ask what others are playing and i told you many may not have a current mmo because one to suit their likes isn't available.

    But like i said, that doesn't really concern GW2. You might aswell ask everyone what mmo they play or are waiting for. The reason why it's irrevelant is because, like i said, GW2 is GW2. Trying to "counter haters" wiTh this is pointless.

    If a "hater" played the game and gave a negative and critical opinion of it, as long as it's not just a stupid comment like "LOLZ WOW clone. It sucks. X is better", they are prefectly free to do so without having to state what they feel is better.

    It's not like the "GW2 haters" you attempt to bait in the OP wanted to dislike GW2.  I would guess that the people that are most vocal about their disappointment in GW2 have invested significant amounts of time trying to get into it.  I hit level 80, completed my story, 100% map completion, worked a good ways towards a legendary, played tons of WvW, leveled at 80 over 100 times (granted it was from AoE farming Orr events, which was really the only way to farm karma for a legendary).  I really wanted to like the game and stick with it, there's just not enough to it.  A special event every month isn't enough to hold my attention and the heavy legendary grind simply was not fun.  

    I'll never say that I didn't get my money's worth out of the box price, but I will say that GW2 is not a good MMORPG.  It's a great value as a single player type game with a start and finish.  While people are welcome to say that ArenaNet delivered exactly what they said they would, I can't shake the feeling that the pre game marketing (including the manifesto) were a bit misleading.  Minimally, they made me expect something different than what was delivered.

    As far as what games are better than GW2?  WoW and Rift are a few past games that I would rate as better MMORPGs.  While I no longer play those games, I did last much longer than a month in both of them.  Currently, I am playing single player games and awaiting a good MMORPG release.

     They did but honestly, I played it for about 3 weeks and now the premades are getting annoying, personally i'm waiting for the ranked 3v3 arena since it will apparently pair you with people close to your ranking to stop the discrepancy premades in BGs create.

     

    Also TERA EU worries me, gameforge(frogster) has not been handling TERA all too well. I'm from NA, and TERA EU still doesn't have proper customer service or a online shop for name changes, race changes, apparance change, etc. Also doesn't have chronoscrolls.

    I have no hate for GW2, in fact I am a fan of a significant part of the game and thought it was well worth the box cost to me, but I have stopped playing it now in order to take a MMO break and cleanse the palate (so to speak) for FFXIV.

    Why?

    Because, I am hoping, it will offer me a more convincing trinity role based PvE group play game, as well as housing and enjoyable dungeons.
