    I'm not sure what you're aiming at by posting this.  Are you seeing if anyone knows of a good deal?

    As it stands, GW2 is probably one of the few games that is worth much more than it's initial box price; the amount of content within it alone is worth thrice the price of the box, and quite possibly ten times more if you're used to console games that only last a couple hours.

    It's a matter of personal taste on whether you will actually experience it all, but there should be little doubt that the value is there  and worthy of some recognition in my personal opinion.

    When faced with strife or discontent, the true nature of a man is brought forth. It is then when we see the character of the individual. It is then we are able to tell if he is mature enough to grin and bare it, or subject his fellow man to his complaints and woes.

    Be careful  when you buy....there are MANY scammers out there trying to find people just like you who are looking for a "bargan".

    You're better off coughing atleast 40-50. Not many people would steep below 30 for a game that's 60 and no sub fee afterall unless they were conning you.

    I personally say either get the full game for atleast 40 or higher or not at all. Afterall, for the same original price you get four months of a $15 sub, a year of $5 sub, and if you don't like it go ahead and shelve it like me until something big comes your way that eyes your fancy. Or wait a longer time and then you could perhaps find someone willing to shell out the game for a $20.

    but am a resnable person and i cant judge you, but no sorry i dont know where u get the price but bilive me its worth the 50$ as much as lot of people here say that its not worth it (that is thire opinion) (and ................that image is my opinion)

    in the end its all about your opinion :)

    Amazon has it listed at $40 for used (I don't think i would buy it used though). So it looks like you might have to wait till next year to play it for around $20

    not really sure how anyone could say any MMO is not worth its box price.. just for the amount of content you are given compared to single player games in a MMO is insane.. i have almost 400 hours into GW2 and probably only have experienced half of the games content.. i really can't think of a single MMO not worth at least $60 even most f2p ones... i bought god of war 3 and the new devli may cry for $60 and beat both in a single weekend...

    I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

    You're not going to find the game through official sources for $20 until after an expansion launches.  Sometime after that, you might be able to pick up the original game for $20, but that won't give you the expansion with it.

    If you find a site claiming to sell new copies for $20, then it's probably a scam.  If you try to get a "used" account for $20, then it's buyer beware, and don't be too shocked or blame ArenaNet if you get scammed.

    Best to just wait for the price to drop.  As many have said, it hasn't officially gone that price and there be lots of scammers out there.

    What a joke, GW2 is worth the 20$ he wants to pay but don't spout this nonsense. Regardless of content I found it to be the most pointless game ever, in which case, makes it worth roughly 0 to me. I am not alone.

    I've gotten almost 3 times as many hours in GW2 as I got in Skyrim... and I'm bored of Skyrim.  It's all subjective though, hope you find your $20 GW2.

    According to my experience with GW1, I guess you need to wait like 1 or 2 years to get to price you like.

    TSW is about 25$ so may be try it.

    try before buy, even if it's a game to avoid bad surprises.
    Worst surprises for me: Aion, GW2

    Perhaps my English comprehension is off, but if the OP was trying to find a copy of GW2 for $20 ...Why would they be interested in a copy of TSW for 25?

    Because that's likely the best he'll get for that money... a cheap game for a cheap price.

    Dont like the game?, dont pretend to be looking for purchase. Its well worth the price but if you dont want to pay that amount, thats ok, wait for a sale but dont troll about it. Hell people pay 50 bucks for expansion!, not even full games. sigh.... trolls gonna troll.

    I honestly think that if GW2 is not worth 60 bucks then no mmos are worth 60 bucks either. But thats my opinion and nobody has to agree with it.

    Chances are you won't see it that low even with a sale until after the first expansion comes out which will probably be 40-60$ so if you want to play GW2 you will ultimately have to cough up a similar price to what you are paying now regardless of how long you wait. If you get it cheaper chances are that it is not from a safe source and your account will be banned. They ban those kind of keys all the time. 

    As for it not being worth 20$; you are out of your mind. I don't know of anyone, haters included, that did not get 60$ worth of content out of GW2. If they didn't enjoy the game enough to get that much time out of it then it was their fault for not doing any research or checking out the game beforehand. There were plenty of opportunities to play it before launch. If I hit 80 and quit playing GW2 I would still have gotten more then my money's worth. The time it takes for most people to get to 80 is probably around the time it takes you to play through 5 long 60$ regular single player games. Realistically according to today's standards I would say I probably got my 60$ worth before the end of the 3rd day.

    A game that won multiple Game of the Year, MMO of the Year and RPG of the Year awards just a couple months ago at a bargin bin price? Dream on.
  • dimnikardimnikar ZanistanvillePosts: 271Member

    I'm sure they'll do deals & assorted offers when sales die down or when the expansion releases (bundles etc.)

    You're definitely not alone in not wanting to spend over $20 (I'm waiting for such a deal myself), and NCSoft knows this.

    60 $ would have been enough for roughly 7 movie tickets, which means about 14-21 hours of entertainment.

     

    Do I choose any MMORPG for 60 $ or to have seen "The Dark Knight", "Schlinder's List", "The Shawhank Redemption", "Fight Club", "Forrest Gump", "Inception"  and "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" when they were released at the movie theater? 

     

    HMMMMMMMMMMMM

    i can sell to u friend, but i live in another country and need sugestions on how to make safe trade.
  • botrytisbotrytis In Flux, MIPosts: 2,567Member

    GW1 is not that cheap and neither is WoW - both around 25 US dollars per chapter. A game that is just B2P, probably will not get that low unless it is a total flop.

     

    SO if GW2 is not that good of a game - why even play it? Move on....

    Isn't the behavior typical from the actual generation though? Get everything for free (or almost)? Why buy the Blu-Ray (or DvD) of a movie you love and will watch dozens of times, when you can download if for free?

    I see a similar pattern here... the game already has no sub fee, but they also want the game itself for free.

    There was a time when most people would actually work for something they want...

    PS: don't get me wrong, people bypassing law and wanting everything for free always existed. But nowadays, with the anonymity on Internet, it has become so easy... there's barely any risk at all, so even John Doe does it in the safety of his home.

    Playing now: WoW, Landmark, GW2, The Crew, SotA

    Top 3 MMORPGs played: UO, AC1 and WoW

    Honorable mentions: AO, LotRO, SW:TOR and GW2.

    You can get the original Guild Wars for that but I wouldn't expect to find GW2 for that price for some time. GW2 has been extremely successful and has been given high praise by both gamers and professional reviewers. It is one of the most talked about and most played MMO's currently out. 

     

    If you don't feel it's worth more than $25 thats fine, just expect to wait a good while before it hits that price due to its popularity and level of success.
