    None of those games are free. SWTOR - it is so limited in free mode, it is not worth playing. ANd with PS2, you buy the 'UBER' guns. Nothing is really free.

    GW2 TO THE END BRO!!!

     

    So you could never play one of those quest hub MMOs again. So what's happened in the last twenty four hours, have you stopped playing SWTOR.

    Pretty sure SWTOR has quest hubs, you can correct me if I'm wrong.

    I actually rebooted up MtgO, can't be playing any MMO that's on the market right now, they are all sub par, GW2 was my last hope of redemption, but thats just turned out to be a trading game, Anet has so much control over the drops, constant nerfing, manipulation of items and gem store, they can stick there precious game where the sun don't shine.

    Ah lol, fair enough I'm a bit slow today lol.


    Anyway since playing the Age Of Wushu beta from November 15th through to 25th November, I haven't been able to play another mmorpg. Some of the features in the game are truly original for MMOs and on top of that it's a beautiful FFA PvP sandbox MMO.

    The 20th of December can't come quick enough.

    I feel like a fool for buying it.  Unrelated as that may be.

    I tried to warn you all. But nobody would listen. They just keep supporting the business model of, "Recouperate costs and profit in first 3 months...then who cares how good the game is after that."

    Or you know, they could just be using the exact same business model as Guild Wars 1 where they pump out massive amounts of content into expansions that are constantly worth your money.

    Unlike 99% of sub fees which appear to be wasted by incompetant developers taking their time and not really earning the fees they charge. ArenaNet actually earns their paycheck.

    The game isn't free.  You have to pay to get it.

     

    I don't play subscription based games period, so none of the above.  That includes GW2.  If it were a subscription game, I would not be playing it.  Fortunately for me, Anet saw the wisdom in B2P MMORPGs.

    You want me to pay to play a game I already paid for???

    Be afraid.....The dragons are HERE!

    Yeah it even warns you after you have made your first character lol. It says 'Age Of Wushu is FFA PvP MMO are you sure you want to proceed' llol. If you go to the Age Of Wushu forum's on this site I and a few others have posted some great video's and info, check them out you won't be disappointed. For some reason mmorpg.com don't want to promote the game they didn't even check out the first western beta. Don't worry about the cash shop a Dev explains how it works in a video I've posted, it'sa not pay to win .

    For the 100th time in this thread, GW2 is NOT free.  It's buy to play.  If you don't spend the sixty bucks to BUY it, you can't play it.  It not having a sub is NOT the same thing as it being "free."  To further personalize my post, I only played GW2 to level 48 before returning to WoW and Mists of Pandaria, so.....that says something about what I thought of it, I suppose.  Enjoyed it, but it lacked something for me.  I love the whimsical nature of WoW, always have and probably always will.  I also love EQ2.  So perhaps GW2 was just not meant to be a "long term" game for me.

    EDIT:

    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.

  • TealaTeala SomewherePosts: 7,430Member Uncommon
    Money I do not think is the issue.  If the game is a good game I think people would pay whatever you asked as long as it is within reason.    It is a matter if it is a good game or not.   That is all it boils down to in the end.

    You just said you were playing SWTOR. There really isnt more a hub friendly game than that. 

    you didnt feel the sarcasm in his words?

    anyway, just stick to the good game you enjoy. No need to talk down other good games that you dont enjoy anymore. That goes to everyone.

    ^^Exactly! 

    The classic $15 a month shoul be trivial for even a highschooler with only a part-time job. If it isn't you shouldn't be playing games at all. Personally I would pay much more than  $15 if I feel a game warrants it. After all a single night out for dinner, a date at the movies, a night at a bar, all will fill only a single evening for much more cost, the MMO is there all month.

    WTF is wrong with most of this community? The game is fun...hell it's great! I didn't think it would be either. Do some of you just feel you HAVE to post crap here? The more I read here, the more I think that most have no brain.

    The way the question is formulated implies most would be playing something else if GW2 weren't free, even if the first option is that I would still play GW2.

    Even if it had a sub I would still play it, I like it way better than any sub MMO currently out there (and I've played them all).

    I've played Vanguard for nearly six years, I have four top level toons and numerous atls across two accounts. My guild have traversed the vast world of Telon.

    Vanguard is a epic game and one any avid PvE player should try. I am having a break and now looking forward to a complete opposite MMO,

    Age Of Wushu.


    After playing the beta I can't stop thinking about the game lol, it takes a bit of getting use to but damn the game is fun and rewarding. The 20th of December can't come quick enough with a 20 day beta and updated content not seen in the last beta. Their is a reason it's the number one mmo in China.

    None of them, 

    1- GW2 is not free

    2- there is not only those game

    3- i gotta go

  • GreyhooffGreyhooff New York, NYPosts: 654Member

    I do play other games.

    Dishonoured - for a few days, great but short

    BOPS2 - multiplayer still from time to time, not much though

    Far Cry 3 - currently

    Orcs must die 2 - for 1 week, deeply addictive, thank god I 5skulled most of it

    Planetside 2 - disappointed with this one

    MOP for 1 month because I paid for it - boring ugly unbalanced game, worse than cata

    Torchlight 2 - 1 week

    etc etc

    I always come back to GW2 though, for longer term gaming.

    If this game had a monthly subscription** since in truth B2P is NOT free, and the fact it has a cash shop actually discredits it further.

    Still not playing this game so can't really say, I'd still be stuck playing what I am now (rift) :)

  • Alber_gamerAlber_gamer RomePosts: 557Member Uncommon

    GW is free? Pretty sure I paid 50ish bucks for it.

     

    I already play/played most of those games in the list. And for a much longer time than GW2, if I may add. Some games are worth a subscription, and others aren't worth playing for "free".

    My opinion is my own. I respect all other opinions and views equally, but keep in mind that my opinion will always be the best for me. That's why it's my opinion.
