Back in 2005, a certain MMO hit the market called Guild Wars. It was an MMO that anyone could play given they pay for the game itself. It did not have any subscription fees and it also worked for those who still ran on 56K internet. It featured 10 different professions (or classes if you will) over the 3 campaigns (Prophecies, Factions, Nightfall) and one official expansion (Eye of the North). Humans were the only playable race in the original Guild Wars, but that was changed in Guild Wars 2 with the addition of the Charr, Sylvari, Norn, and Asura. The game takes place in the fictional world of Tyria, which is featured in both Guild Wars 1 and 2.
