Arena Net is putting a lot of effort into this mmo.

True. If nothing else is to be said of Guild Wars 2, the one thing people can't deny is that ArenaNet tried their hearts out with this game.

It's been six years, and I'm still excited.

Guild Wars 2 is the answer to a lot of questions MMO related or not!

GW2 also has shown to cure cancer in lab mice!

With the amount of hype this is getting, Arena Net are going to be kicking themselves for going with the f2p formula. No game has came even remotely close to generating as much hype for this game since WoW's release and honestly, the hype reminds me of what WoW was like leading up to it's release.

Half the hype was precisely because of it's B2p (not f2p) nature, the rest being their sheer genius .

Not only has it generated the hype, but it has delivered FAR above it IN ITS BETA FORM!

But to answer your question, you bet your f***ing ass it is.

Im not sold on it yet. Nothing new here.

Unless you can point out to any mmo with dynamic questing and actual lasting effect on it's world , not just the empty priomises of those , yes there is something new here .

Did you PLAY the beta? Seriously, EVERYTHING is new. Comparing this to WOW is like day and night, both visually and as far as gameplay goes.
