Although I play mmorpgs since 2000 (EQ), nowadays I don't have much time to dedicate to my favorite hobby as I used to.
Like a lot of people visiting this forum, I left WoW and been trying some alternatives that could meet my limited time to play.
Been playing Diablo 3 ( not mmorpg I know) , although it has some features I really don't like (RMAH) the game promises to live long years because it has top notch animations and combat mechanics and is great to deliver moments of bashing through hundreds of mobs (usually I play it while listening music and found it very relaxing)
I can't think a better game to entertain me for small chunks of time like Diablo 3 ( Path of Exile is also a very nice game)
But then I faced problem: I still need something for those days when I can play longer and that something should offer deeper content. Tried TERA, TSW, Neverwinter ( NW did surprised me at first but the F2P model, the shallow content (not including Foundry which is nice) and all those exploits problems made me try another game)
That other game is Guild Wars 2, it turned out to deliver what I needed to complete my gaming need with Diablo 3.
I am taking my time playing GW2, paying attention to all details, trying all options and avoiding to rush thorough the content.
I don't want to provoke the haters, I created this thread because I know there are a lot of gamers on a similar situation as me, but I have to say that GW2 is made from the heart and that shows on every little detail of the game.
At first I found the combat mechanics a bit odd but as I leveled and tried through the options the game started to show its potential. For example the switch weapons option ( assigned a button on mouse just for that) so my warrior could pull mobs with bow and then quickly change to melee weapons.
Diablo 3 and Guild Wars 2 worked for me because they complement each other.
I would like to ear from other people that found other mixes of games that complement nicely .
