    What?  GW2 was nominated for best PC game...

     

    Not for Game Of The Year.

    You said it wasn't even mentioned... I found out that it was in 20 seconds on Google.  Pay attention.

    it wasn't mentioned on the tv broadcast.  they didn't hand out that award on the show.  and gw2 didn't win.

    I think the prostitute mod corrupted your game files man. -elhefen

    In terms of sales, GW2 isn't doing so hot.  Not bad, but not nearly as well as compared to games like Diablo 3.

    I don't know where you get your information from, but GW2 is still the top selling MMORPG on Amazon, and the boxed version is still in the top 5 PC games sales too there. And that's only the boxed version, and only on Amazon.

    Don't confuse what you think (or hope) is happening and reality.

    Dang, I must resist quoting Icewhite's post again now...

    I get my information from company press releases and official comments.

    Diablo 3 :  6.8M as of July (latest official figures)

    Guild Wars 2 : 2M as of Sep (latest offically verified figures) 

     

    Those numbers don't have to be perfect to see that Diablo 3 is doing significantly better than GW2.  I'm not saying this to bash GW2 or anything and, as I explained in other posts, it's not the end all be all of how well a game is doing (I posted some xFire numbers that were in favor of GW2 later).

    So stop assuming that anything negative I say about GW2 must mean I'm simply imposing my opinion on the matter.

     

     Lol are you seriously comparing gw2 to dablo 3, not even Wow, or Sc2 sold that amount in retail in the period of time that diablo 3 did. In fact that 's more than the majority of multiplat releases. Your basically comparing it to the one the best selling probably currently ever in that period of time PC release. It's like comparing borderlands or even halo 4 to call of duty. They're not in the same ball park and that's not a bad thing as they are still successful,

    Uh, last I checked, this is about the top game of 2012, and diablo 3 is a game and it was released in 2012 right?

     

    This award is a total joke, and any of you that think GW2 deserves it are out of your freakin minds.  Yes, it's possible to like the game, to think it's good, and NOT be completely delusional in thinking it's the top game... fark.

     Umm going by most review metrics proffessional and user based GW2 beats D3, which is what this thread is about not sales. Otherwise CoD would game of the year for the past several years. Also by that metric it beats the vast majority of games, and is oneof the hiight rated games released this year on metric and is the highest rated pc game released this year. Going by those valid reason, it does deserve some awards. You may not like those reasons or personally agree with them but then you might as well ignore game of the years as a whole (which is fine).

    A lot of these awards are slanted towards console crap, so for a PC only game to even get a mention, let alone a win, is an accomplishment.  That being said, while I think GW2 is probably a top 10 game for 2012, I can think of at least 5 or 6 other games I enjoyed much more.  It's probably still the best value for your dollar, though.

    And even though I don't play it anymore, I would never even think of asking for a refund after all the time I spent playing.  Anyone thats done that should give their head a shake.  Its a dick move.

    I'm guessing the reason d3 ain't in the list, a lot of people like me bought it, felt suckered and uninstalled the bloody thing a couple of days latter.

    Gw2 Is a much better game than d3

    Although its not the best pc game this year (dishonoured) or the best mmo (planetside 2)

    Well - one man's garbage is another man's diamond.

     

    The player base is huge and diverse and just because it doesn't agree with your opinion means absolutely squat. It means people like it - get over yourself.

    But GW2 didn't innovate anything. It's just a mess of poor and boring execution, and it doesn't matter if one, two, three, or MORE publications give it the gold medal. My opinion still trumphs theirs. I simply cannot be wrong. In my mind and my bubble world GW2 cannot be good. Never.

    Your were right about one two three or more publications giving it the gold metal ...but you didn't get the part where it would become a one horse race

I give ArenaNet their due, i got a refund the other day after maxing out a toon to level 80 and buying the game nearly three months ago lol. Got my monies worth and got a refund, good chaps at ArenaNet even if GW2 is poor.

     

    You got your moneys worth, and got a refund.  So basically you ripped off Anet.  Congratulations. 

     

    However if you are claiming you got your money's worth, how in hell's bells did you think you were entitled to a refund.  With that kind of logic I think I'll leave your opinion of GW2 in the toilet as well.
