Is Guild Wars 2 the Most Hyped Game ever?

Suck My Trend - Guild Wars 2 is coming. Its only a month away according to their Twitter page. The release date is set for 28th August 2012, but is this simply too late? It has been years of development, and when it was first announced, the hype was incredible. Everyone had the impression this would be the only game to stand a chance at overtaking World of Warcraft.

Does the Hype Still remain?

No it is Not but it will live up to and surpass the Diablo III hype!

Guild Wars 2 is gonna be a evolution in MMO's!

Diablo 3 is also by the same Developers as World of Warcraft, so I wanted to not cover it within this Opinion Piece.

diablo 3 was hated before it came out so it doesn't count. More "omg its always online no way" articles rather than good ones. So yes GW2 is more hyped that D3, for some reason.

The "always online" articles / other hate did have a point. Server problems, RMAH problems (people losing money that they were allowed to put into their account but lost when they tried to purchase items due to region checks or such), glitches and dupping...

But besides all the hate, D 3 was hyped way more (for PCs). Blizzard's marketing of the game outshines anything GW2 has had. Ads everywhere, online and on TV. Look at the past few articles on GW2, barely any comments, and most under 100°. Pretty much every D3 article has a dozen or so comments. Advertising helps get people looking at it, getting it attention and building up hype for its release.

Though if you include consoles, then pretty much every COD is the most hyped game ever due to their marketing budget and following...

D3 isn't close to as good as GW2.

I have both (beta for GW2) and what Arena Net has done is absolutetly fantstic.

Bravo to the GW2 development team.

this is my 3rd beta of gw2 and while they are improving the game each time, i still dont get how the game run so shitty, i look at the graphics and i don't see a bf3 in it and yet it lags way more than bf3, and for me the hype was the pvp which is ok nothing really new there, i still dont get the hype for the game, is another mmo imo.

Diablo 3 was maximum hype and maximum fail. I played a few hours of GW2's beta and it seems like it has potential.

When something has a huge fanbase and has the genre by the balls its tough to beat that.
