ArenaNet: Guild Wars 2 an MMORPG

There's a new Guild Wars 2 Design Manifesto on the ArenaNet Blog, as they celebrate the fifth anniversary of the launch of Guild Wards and the tenth anniversary of the formation of ArenaNet. The post by Mike O'Brien goes into detail about plans for the sequel, and says that unlike the original, there will be no debating that Guild Wars 2 is an MMORPG: "The first thing you should know about Guild Wars 2 is that, this time around, thereís no question that itís an MMORPG. Itís an enormous, persistent, living, social world, filled with a wide variety of combat and non-combat activities. Thereís so much depth here that youíre never going to run out of new things to discover. So if you love MMORPGs, you should check out Guild Wars 2. But if you hate traditional MMORPGs, then you should really check out Guild Wars 2. Because, like Guild Wars before it, GW2 doesnít fall into the traps of traditional MMORPGs. It doesnít suck your life away and force you onto a grinding treadmill; it doesnít make you spend hours preparing to have fun rather than just having fun; and of course, it doesnít have a monthly fee." Thanks Ledi.

I think GW attracted different RPG players than the MoMos do. It just comes down to what you're looking for from your gaming. I never even did the PVP part of the game! There are definitely two sides to the GW series. I think it's its own style of online RPG and there's nothing wrong with that in the slightest.

I'm not really much into the level-grind-loot phenomenon myself but I enjoyed just seeing all of the world and completing the storyline. I put probably 100 hours into it, unlocking a ton of stuff and trying a few builds. I liked to look of the game and the atmosphere too.
