Lately, when I have some free time to spend it on the computer, I’ve been playing Guild Wars 2. I bought the game when it came out but only played it once or twice. I had only leveled my character up to level 25 at most. I worked on getting to level 80 (which I did) and now I’m working on doing map and activities completion whenever I have some time to spare.
It really is such a fun game, and it’s one of the prettiest MMOs I have ever played. The vistas feature provide such an amazing addition to map exploration and the cut-scenes they feature when they focus on a specific landscape, it’s just beautiful.
My main character (the one I leveled to level 80) is a Human Elementalist and I’ve had a blast playing with that character. The great thing about this game is that, compared to other MMOs, it was more options of things you can do that add a replay value to the game (I’m obsessed with jumping puzzles!). Right now, I’m trying to get 100% map completion and I’m at 80%, so I still have some work to do. While I do map completion, I’m taking advantage of special events that happen around the region that I’m trying to complete so I can win some goodies and money for the character.
This game definitely became my favorite MMO, I like it even more than World of Warcraft (and I was obsessed with WoW back when I played).
Have you played Guild Wars 2? Do you like it?
The whole ‘free to play’ aspect of gaming has been on the rise for the past two years. Aion and Tera have been two games that have recently gone free to play. I decided to download both. Today, I played Tera for a bit and I’m liking it so far. I’m going to try to play some more during the weekend, let’s see how this goes.
