I don't play Guild Wars 2 right now but I would still recommend it to anyone looking to try out a new game who isn't looking for an endgame raid environment. It's good value for money and it can provide at the very least, hundreds of hours of entertainment. You don't need to grind anything or keep on par to a tier system, so taking a month or two off is no big deal. It is as others have said very casual though. If you are the type of person who looks for a competitive PvP scene, or PvE wise if you enjoy any sort of gear grind progression/ character micromanagement/raiding or even theorycrafting, I'd say this game is the wrong one to go for.
