We already have a superhero mmo. It's called DCUO (DC Universe Online)
Did we really ask for another one? No.
And Champions, but DCUO while a nice looking game has really shitty control schemes...

I get a lot of crap for this but obviously some game makers are listening. I like the social aspect and large areas of an MMORPG but my problem is that I can't do 4-8 hour raids over and over to get gear to do the next level. I got a business to run where I get real money and stuff. In other words I want to play a MMORPG casually and that's where I get crap because hardcore players think MMORPG means long hours of raiding and that massively multi-player means I HAVE to constantly play with others for hours which I can't do. Ever. I can play lots of FPS online where I play for 5 minutes or 5 hours. So, I am on the order page, should I buy this now?
I would think so. GW2 is a very time-friendly game. You can jump in, play PvE or sPvP for half an hour and feel like you've accomplished a lot.
I would say that the later level Dungeons could potentially require an hour or two to finish, but given that they're capped at 5 max players, I couldn't image them lasting for 6 hours like raids in other MMOs.
There ARE grindy elements in GW2, but they're similar to GW1 in that you can easily get top-notch gear stat-wise, but if you want that giant flaming greatsword or the unicorn longbow that shoots rainbows, you will have to grind for specific things. It's all cosmetic though.
