  • What is the best game to play long after it was released?

    @immodium love your avatar, I had so much fun with that game.  It's a shame what the studio did to the second one.

    Streamers and before that fan sites getting advantages predates "F2P".
    And I'm not defending streamers, in my opinion most if not all of them on Twitch and Youtube are immature young adults with attention seeking problems and inflated egos who should find something better to do with their life.
    I can't, for the life of me, understand why folks would spend any significant amount of time watching streamers just play games.

    Those streaming about alpha gameplay ala Pantheon streams are understandable, since the streamer has exclusive access to a game's development.  And I guess I could see briefly watching a stream to get a feel for gameplay prior to purchase (though YouTube videos seem much better suited to this).  But to spend significant amounts of time watching another player stream them playing the game I can boot up and experience myself?  What?
    Because you're not the target demographic. We're talking the pre-teen / teen crowd. The rest of us are geezers.
    Hey!   I represent that remark!!! :smiley:

    I NEVER do collections and since the Griffon I'm actually doing COLLECTIONS now. I just need to level huntsman to 400 and I can make my ascended rifle also. For me, if the expansion added a dungeon or two, or maybe some new pvp maps it'd be 10/10. However as it is I completely agree with your 9/10 score. For those who think Bill's review is off, I would say you haven't really given the game a chance. The new content isn't supposed to destroy all the old content either, it's supposed to add to it, and the mounts make the older content considerably more fun to be in also.



    Now if I could just convince the devs and the wvw community that we NEED mounts in WvW. New wvw maps just for mounts or mounts balanced for just riding in wvw like gliding is.. idc.. and I don't care about the naysayers either. Let me ride into battle on my raptor dammit!



    I never do collections and probably never will again but it was worth it.

    The event is cool for those interested but i am not jumping through hoops to see some unproven game.

    If you are serious about your game,then lets test it and give us a feedback form to fill out,simply really and proves more you care about your game.



    I always here the statements "we listen" "we want your feedback" ,too bad devs never prove any of their statements are true.


    But but but but....this is exactly what the "contests" (for fun, btw) are for. If you're lucky, you get an Alpha Zero key to play and provide feedback

    My work here is done.



    LoL, your work is never done. :)
