"All right, I'm a few years late but last week, I finally got my hands on Guild Wars, Prophecies. A few years ago, I heard my cousin talked about Guild Wars and how you don't have to pay a subscription fee. I thought that was awesome. Now after playing the game, I concluded that the developer, ArenaNet, is made up of geniuses.
We kept hearing about MMOs going under left and right. (Tabula Rasa anyone?) As I am no MMO expert, I'm not sure if it was because most dead MMOs suffered from technical problems or bad marketing or what not. My theory is that they all failed because they tried to go head on with World of Warcraft. Seriously, how could you beat a 800 pound gorilla?"
