Dear sir, to put it in a better perspective,
they are both great games in their own rights, the big difference is the audience they cater to is as wide as the grand canyon.
A casual in Darkfall will most likely come to hate the game.
A hardcore sandbox pvp player in Guild Wars 2 is also likely to hate the game eventually.
so I ask myself didn't these players read any info on the game prior to buying it?
It'd be fully obvious which one you would enjoy if taken the time to read of view some videos about them, or at the very least try them on for size than you'd know.
Darkfall caters to the hardest of the hardest old school sandbox type players:
I have tried darkfall and I admit it is not for me at all, I wouldn't say it is a bad game just to hardcore for my casual tastes.
some of the things that I do not think are bad but still make the game not for me
- full on pvp lootable corpses, you lose a battle you lose all the loot and items you carry, it sounds exciting but that is just not for me
- feats that require killing a 1000x enemies, again i'm a casual so no thank you.
- indepth crafting sounds interesting alright but the time it consumes makes it again way to hardcore for my casual style soul.
Are you starting to see the trend with this game ?
it's a huge time invetstment and commitment, just like EVE is, which is why I don't play EVE either even though I love the whole concept of it.
- the overall animations are absolutely horrible in darkfall, they got the physics awesomely right but leaves much to be desired on the fluidity aesthetics department of all the animations, this is an issue inherited by many hardcore games not just darkfall, they tend to think aesthetics are meaningless. To a hardcore player they apparently are but to me as a casual I like the fluidity of the animations and the beauty of Guild Wars 2.
On the other hand there's little I do not like about GW2:
- legendaries on the trade post ( auction House) these are not suppose to be sellable at all and should be account bound.
- precursors on the trading post same issue as above, these are both hugely debated current game issues right now.
in general I believe both games deserve credit where credit is due.
if you're a avid hardcore pvp sandbox style player I understand why you might not enjoy GW2.
if you're a casual I fully understand why you'd think Darkfall is a horrible game.
My hardcore player days are over I can't and do not have that kind of time anymore there's so much more to do in this world
and even if I did find myself with that much time in my hands I'd still not return to the hardcore scene again.
it was fun to play 12-16 hour sessions back in the day, now that is just unrealistic.
- Brings back the no life outside of gaming VS having a life outside of gaming issue all over again.
I'm a casual now and I absolutely love the fact I can login play for 45 minutes to an hour and acomplish something towards my overall goal.
I still love games, I'm a gamer for life
Just not a hardcore gamer anymore.
Originally posted by gamekid2k Correction sir; GW2 is not a MMO or a game. it is 'press' button 'A' to get item 'B' or press button 'C' to get item 'D'. It is an advance version of vending maching. Even wow is better than GW2...
technically everything is like that. DFUW is quite close to being more pve centric at this point. at least you can hop into pvp at any time gw2. in dfuw you have to grind out 5/30/150 mobs to get 15k prowess to be pvp effective. also before you respond with something wrong: i play both regularly.

hmm very true

I would actually say that EVE Online has the best graphics for a sandbox MMO. ...IMO.
I'm not sure EVE is even a sandbox. Can an on rails MMO be considered a sandbox?

Well, now there's a first. I'd have to say that you're the first person in ten or so years that I have seen use "on rails" to describe EVE Online.
There isn't a "right" or "wrong" way to play, if you want to use a screwdriver to put nails into wood, have at it, simply don't complain when the guy next to you with the hammer is doing it much better and easier. - Allein"Graphics are often supplied by Engines that (some) MMORPG's are built in" - Spuffyre

Too bad the game is a POS.
100% open world PvP - gank-fest.
LOL - keep telling yourself the above. You might actually believe it it one day. I will play GW2 and you can play the 'poser' game.
Spoken like a true defensive fanboy and a carebare afraid of real WPVP. I don't even get how you can handle playing GW2 for more than a week every few months, it's just so bad and feels like a game made for elementary kids, and the story feels like it was written by a C+ 6th grader.
That's a real assesment of the game, I'm not trolling or flaming. It's pretty bad.
Sorry, I will take the AAA sequel to the AAA MMO that is b2p than the mediocre sequel to the mediocre mmo that is s2p any day.
Besides, you haven't done anything to convince me that GW2 is worse than DF. Why is it better, the PvP? Ever consider the possibility that not everyone likes PvP, that people prefer games where players are encouraged to cooperate and show off the best the gaming community has to offer rather than games where players are encouraged to stab each other in the back and show off the worst the gaming community has to offer?
Since when is Tuesday a direction?

That's Age of Wushu.
100% seamless that's DF:UW. AoW feels seamless though
Huh, I always thought Second Life had the best graphics a persistant world sandbox MMO could have.

Well I've been playing it recently and realized that everything is on rails, you click a destination and fly to it on one of a few predetermined paths, and you can't get off those paths from what I can tell.
I 'm talking about the traveling, not the progression.
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.
