The funny thing is, yes GW2 was overhyped...but it wasn't overhyped by ArenaNet oddly enough. The fans did that all by themselves.
The other funny thing is reading the hate people are generating towards it. Are they afraid that their favorite game will lose subscribers or have members play GW2 more? Maybe. The best is people complaining about the lack of a gear treadmill and, for lack of a better word, mind-numbing grinding. Its like gamers have been conditioned to think that grinding is an essential component to a MMO.
