    I have to agree, in terms of pure main story potential SW:TOR rocked but their hub questlines were a little bit repetitive and felt a bit uninspired in parts. The whole opposite to GW2 actually If you are levelling and stay within areas a longer you will get to know about the regional story background more and they are not as bad even hilarious in parts. The personal storyline however I find a little bit...undercut well *aside from the the Asura ones* of course. I find those most enjoyable of all until the generic main story takes over.

    If options out there or soon to be released like Assassin's Creed 3, Hitman, Halo 4 or GTA5 - I wouldnt even consider buying GW2.

    Unfortunately Halo 4 isn't coming to PC though and I would think the OP was asking from PC gamer perspective.

    Just named a few examples in the hope of hitting his taste. I'd take any game over GW2, since it wasnt one of my best purchases this year - it honestly is a letdown and now I'm here, suggesting him that he should stay away from it.

    I can hardly call any of your games single player rpg's.

    Considering that you can't finish your "personal" story without other people, no.

    This. GW2's story is pretty weak and SWTOR's is the best in the industry.

    Personally I am waiting for GW2's price to drop to something reasonable so I can pick it up as something to play once in a while when I need a break from SWTOR. I am really shocked that the sticker is still $60. I was thinking it would be closer to $20 by Christmas, but if it gets down to $30 I might buy it for that.
    WoW having more subs than SWTOR is the same thing as Justin Bieber having more youtube plays than Tupac. Just because its more popular doesn't mean its good.
    Warcraft Lore has gone from one of the most vast and interesting stories in all of gaming to a bad Thrall Fanfic by Chris Metzen.

    lol no way, GW2 is prolly the most generic when it comes to your race/class story, its not worth it at all just for that... however it has many things up for offer such as the expansive pvp system. I didn't try much of the pve but i heard its still good. No subscription makes it worth the look for the game as a whole.

    Imo if I were you I'd wait till swtor goes ftp. the class stories are much better.

    The OP's criteria was story though with Skyrim as his RPG gameplay reference. The rest is just personal feelings unrelated to the OP's question unless Halo 4 is really in league with Skyrim which I am fairly doubtful of.

    Aria was probably the worst and most disappointing dungeon I've ever done in an MMO. Its far from being epic... or even good.

    "Best in the industry"... on what planet? Never was interested in the star wars franchise.

    Do you know what RPG means? And do you suggest that people are posting their own opinions on a forum?! How dare I...

    I am sure you do know what RPG means going by the list of non-RPG games you have suggested to him in response to the question of whether GW2 is worth buying as singleplayer RPG. There was an opinion asked for, yes, however not about whether the game was a letdown for anyone - something which inevitably was going to happen for some people - but whether it is worth buying as singleplayer RPG "for story only".
