I went to fire up the game and login today, and saw the notifications for the latest updates. I really enjoyed GW1, and to this day, I'm convinced it has much more heart as a fantasy MMO game than this new one. Guild Wars always had the holiday theme stuff, and I really enjoyed it as a seasonal break from the norm. There were some cutesy things here and there, but GW2 just seems to be taking this garbage way too far for me. I know most of you love it, but I just don't want to log in to a fantasy MMORPG and see people walking around with boomboxes and 8-bit video game tunes coming out of it.
This game has next to nothing for personal character development, even something as simple as being able to go fishing, or customize pets. Yet the devs are sitting there coding toys like this boombox.
I couldn't do it. Ultimately I just ended up removing the game today. Free or not, it's just not a fun fantasy world for me anymore.
What do you guys think? Does stuff like this Boombox ruin immersion for you, or do you like these kinds of toys in the game?
A sure sign that you are in an old, dying paradigm/mindset, is when you are scared of new ideas and new technology. Don't feel bad. The world is moving on without you, and you are welcome to yell "Get Off My Lawn!" all you want while it happens. You cannot, however, stop an idea whose time has come.
