I'm not exactly sure what happened, but I had been playing this game as a nightly dessert to my SWTOR gaming sessions. Suddenly, one particular day about two weeks ago, something hit me. I'm not sure what it was exactly, but I think something had changed in the angle I was viewing this game. Rather hard to describe exactly, but something just clicked. I think the problem with a lot of our perceptions comes from the way that the industry and media like to pigeon-hole these games into a certain genre/category/type (FPS, MMO, etc. etc.) We've become so entrenched in what those type of games mean to us and the way in which we play them that we have become conditioned to what we find enjoyment out of.
Anyways, whatever this change in my view is, I've come to accept it. In this last week I've had some of the best MMORPG playtimes that I have had in quite some time. Found incredibly nice, mature individuals to play with. Reminded me of back in the old days. Funny, what I had been looking for was sitting right there all this time. I just needed a little time to form my own opinion.
In short, I am having an absolutely great time playing this little gem of a game.
Got my Elementalist up to level 80. Bought an additional character slot and created a Ranger (which I find incredibly entertaining for some reason; odd because I don't tend to play ranged classes). Been popping on my 80 Warrior a bit, plan on getting my Mesmer to higher levels. So much to do but so much fun in doing it.
SWTOR's expansion is coming out in a week or so (which I preordered), but something tells me I'll be busy with GW2.
