Guild Wars 2
Guild Wars 2 is a subscription free, Massively Multiplayer Online Role-playing Game (MMORPG) exclusively for the PC gaming platform. A sequel to the original Guild Wars game released in 2005, the game is set in a persistent gameworld and features a choice based storyline focused around the continued struggles of the peoples of the land of Tyria. Now hundreds of years past the events of the original game, the almost forgotten threat of the Elder Dragons has risen, but so has 'Destiny's Edge,' a guild pledged to combat them. Game features include: a dynamic event/questing system, small and large-scale combat, player vs. player arenas, multiple playable races and professions, and expansive and rewarding dungeon crawls.
In the Shadow of Dragons Legends Become Real
For generations, strife and chaos raged across Tyria as the great races competed and warred against each other. Then the dragons awoke. The all-powerful Elder Dragons rose from beneath earth and sea, wreaking havoc on a global scale. Great cities crumbled before their might. Coastlines flooded. Lush forests burned. Tyria was forever altered.
Now, the undead legions of the deathless dragon Zhaitan surge across the land, hungry for the destruction of the free races of Tyria: the Charr, a ferocious race of feline warriors; the Asura, magical inventors of small size and great intellect; the Norn, towering shapeshifters from the frigid north; the Sylvari, a mysterious race of mystical plant folk; and the Humans, an embattled but resilient people.
The time has come for the free races to stand together against the rising tide of evil. Magic, cold steel, and the deeds of heroes will determine the fate of Tyria.

A Rich, Fully Realized Fantasy World
Developed over the past five years, the vast and incredibly detailed world of Tyria has been brought to life by an award-winning art and development team.
An Innovative Combat System
Featuring amazing skills, combos, improvisational tactics, and environmental weapons, the Guild Wars 2 combat system puts the fun back in MMO battles. Attack on the move, dodge and roll away from enemy blows, team up with other players, and take advantage of environmental weapons to dominate the battlefield!
Intense Player vs. Player Action
Take up arms in epic world vs. world warfare or test your skills against other players in PvP arenas. Competitive play in Guild Wars 2 is easy to learn, but offers challenges for new players and hardcore PvPers alike. In Player vs. Player matches, small teams of players battle over maps packed with objectives, while in World vs. World, armies of hundreds of players from competing servers wage war across four sprawling maps.

This package comes with two dics and if it's installed around Apr. 2015 expect roughly an additional 10GB download of updates. If you've got a high speed connection and a high data cap then head off to the official web site and get it. At times you'll see the game go on sell on their site as little at $10 (More than worth it!).
- Intensive combat that won't let you down
- Graphics, for an MMO, if you have a decent graphics card you'll be surprised
- NO monthly subscription
- Friendly players (And probably friendlier than WoW)
- 8 (soon to be 9 with the expansion) classes to play with
- Plenty of players are still available
- Constant updates
- The story for each race is immersive
- Learning first seems daunting. When you first start playing Guild Wars for the first time it might seem overwhelming but stick to wiki and ask friends and you'll pick up. This game is also about exploration and you'll learn as you keep playing
- Large download
- For some reason a lot of guys use female avatars. (Get ready to get awkward)
- A MMO gaming mouse, while not required, is highly recommended.
- Don't hit on other female characters until you're sure it's a girl
I give shipping 5 stars. And give the game a rating of 9.3/10
The game is *very* solo friendly, but you are better off if you're in a guild (hence the title's name). The trouble most will run into with finding a guild is recruiting isn't done much in the chat channels. I advise hitting the Anet forums to find a guild when you're ready to join one.
Game play is rock solid. I did not run into a single bug with any quests or zone spawns. Action is constant as you travel the zones. There is a *lot* to do; zone jump puzzles, achievements, ect. And you can easily join the action without worry of someone being upset because at the worst you made it easier on them.
Crafting is fun and intuitive. Gathering is as simple as having tools in your inventory, and everyone can tap the same node without "stealing" it from others. Even now you can sell gathered resources on the AH and keep yourself in gold. While you can only have 2 crafting skills active, you can deactivate one in favor of a new one without losing all the progress you made. All it takes is a fee to turn on the skill again and picking up where you left off. Itemization is not the treadmill/priority that it was in WoW, where every update had a new "must do" treadmill. In GW2 you can make what you need, or buy it from other players. No more guild drama about loot. You still find cool drops, but they are skins instead of must have gear sets.
Its not for everyone though as it does depart from some standard designs. GW2 doesn't use the typical MMO holy trinity (tank/heal/dps). Everyone lends a hand in all 3 roles, you just do one role more than the other 2. Some may not like how PvP is done because gear isn't important. But I like that skill and what you do in the moment instead of your gear, says who wins a skirmish.
Finally, some people hate subs, though I don't mind them myself. However the buy once model does let me keep it on my hard drive and play it when I'm in the mood without feeling like I'm wasting money if I don't log in.
