It's graphics are even uglier than the almost 8 years old World of Warcraft graphics
Although GW2's graphics certainly aren't worse than WoW's
You made a troll post, everyone called you on it, and then you made a much more tempered and rational reply decrying how mean we all are.
I agree that was very inconsistent of me. You can call it trolling, but it was nothing more than a comment slightly influenced by an annoyed disbelief for all the overhyped reviews and misrepresenting other media.
Do know that I was mostly referring to the part where the characters somehow feel more detached from the environment. WoW's graphics are more -- as mentioned before -- consistent. That's an opinion of mine that simply does not sway even as I progress further into GW2.
The gigantic fact of the matter is that both the person I bought the game with and myself were highly disappointed to an almost shocking degree when the first map loaded up and we saw the graphics for the first time in realtime. Those who say the game is gorgeous either aren't used to anything or are fooling themselves. I haven't been awestruck once. Granted, the characters look good.
