    Post Guild Wars 2 - Contender for a Perfekt 10 (on NowGamer)

    first of all, it's NOT a review, it is a prediction based on impressions.

    Guild Wars 2: A Perfect 10

    Adam Barnes


    We delve into the factors that could mean Guild Wars 2 has the potential to score the perfect 10.

    Published on Jan 13, 2012
    Guild Wars 2 is an ambitious game, you can be certain of that. ArenaNet has been protective of its darling, keeping a beta back from Guild Wars 2’s baying fans in favour of meticulous in-studio balancing and bug-testing.
    As yet another in a series of features taking a closer look at the big name games of 2012, NowGamer takes a closer look at the elements that could make Guild Wars 2 a potential candidate for a 10/10 score at review...

    Well, this really defines over-hyping.

    There is no perfect 10, there is no perfect.

    Good day.

    I'm sorry no, clearly you didn't see Chuck Norris allowed 10 million to survive his Purge.

    Yea, it seems GW2 will be a pretty darn good game on paper. If the game is stable and fun enough to spread through word of mouth, there are some exciting and interesting possibilities in how MMOs might change going forward.

    I kinda am hesitant to take this acclaim seriously however, as all of the "perfect 10" games that they have so far are games that haven't even had much info released about them, especially GTA:5, i didn't hear anything about the game other than seeing the teaser trailer for it.

    EDIT: Not sure if Bioshock infinite had much spotlight lately, but I can understand the hype for Diablo III and GW2, as both have alot of info out already.

    on a scale from 1 to 10, there is

    Personally I wouldn't do such contender-thing either, but I like the recognition the game gets from articles like this. I like it when gaming magazines support the idea of a new era of mmos.

    over-hyping? probably... but it brings the game closer to the people that really want a new experience and had been deterred by misconceptions so far.

    It won't get a perfect 10, since it's all up to the individual playing. Not to mention...how can they consider this when the game isn't even out yet?

    Putting a score to a game that isn't even in open beta yet is like discussing a new car based on pre-concept sketches. Pointless.

    It's funny that some people who reply to this thread don't even read the article in question, let alone the first post.

    On topic: GW2 looks really great on paper. Hopefully most, if not all, features work like they are presented to us.

    as pointless as posting in a thread without reading the initial post?

    Every game makes promises to be a 10/10 experience, few games are.

    Well, D3 already proved being far away from a perfect 10 with RMAH, graphics from 2009 and the same dull gameplay as in D2.

    ? Like all games today have graphics from 2009. Very few dare going out of the XBOX safety-zone.
    "Good morning!" said Bilbo, and he meant it. The sun was shining, and the grass was very green. But Gandalf looked at him from under long bushy eyebrows that stuck out farther than the brim of his shady hat.

    I like how the post goes "we look at things that COULD make this game a 10/10! But we're not giving it a score yet, though!".

    And all the posters are like "LOL 10/10 ON A NON-RELEASED GAME POINTLESS LOLOL".

    I read that article a day ago and it's a good article, don't get me wrong, buuut...
    It really paints an image of GW2 that could attract a lot of trolls. It's a total, over-hyped, troll baiting article. I think the writer could have been a lot more subtle and cool when he/she wrote it. Otherwise, like I said, it's not a bad article. Even if it looks like someone who did a days worth of research wrote it.

    I've played the Diablo 3 beta, if that is a perfect 10, then I hope GW2 is like a 15 so I enjoy playing it.

    These number scores are just silly though. I'd much rather have no number and a nice 5-6 page review going over the strengths and weaknesses of the game through the leveling process, pvp, and pve.
    "Gamer" is not a bad word. I identify as a gamer. When calling out those who persecute and harass, the word you're looking for is "asshole." @_DonAdams
    When you see someone in a thread making the same canned responses over and over, click their name, click view forum posts, and see if they are a troll. Then don't feed them.

    Saying it might get a 10/10 is as pointless as saying it will.
    Because it's bloody obvious.
    Every game might get a 10/10 before it's released and playable. What a waste of time.

    It's clear that this site is just trying to say it is 10/10 without saying it, purely to get hits. They have written an article that says almost literally nothing.

    What an amazing, quality piece of writing.

    No really.



    Every game has the potential to be a 10/10 game. Most will never get there and speculating on what will is just idle rubbish to draw eyeballs to read over information fans likely already know anyway. Additonally, the guy sounds like he just got a truck full of ArenaNet money dumped on his desk. The level of praise he gives is crazy.

    I greatly dislike game sites that do this.
