I'm not sure whether or not this will get hate or sink down to oblivion, but it's worth a shot.
I'm currently working on a massive project that will go into detail comparing two of my favorite MMORPGs, Guild Wars 2 and Star Wars: The Old Republic.
I understand that people's views on things change, but I welcome any sort of opinion on the matter. I would like to ask for the community's opinion on the game in general. You could explore the following topics:
Gameplay modes: general PvE, PvP and additional modes such as WvW and mini-games.
World: the writing, story progression, expansions and DLC, voice-acting, exploration, jumping puzzles, the maps, NPCs, AI, main cities and hubs, graphics and aesthetics, character customization, etc...
Mechanics: abilities and smoothness of the game, animation, classes, and specializations, etc.
Community: share your thoughts about the good and bad of the community; the possible experiences you might have gone through.
Premium Currency: elaborate if the cash shop and its premium currency(gems) are intrusive or not; the usefulness of said paid items and how it impacts the game;
And other points that you might feel like it.
I want to keep this comparison as solid as I can get without technically siding with one game over the other. Your opinion would prove to be most insightful. Please do try to keep things balanced; there is no need for fanboys or haters... unless you do bring up strong arguments.
Thank you guys for your time! I shall be taking notes if possible.
P.S: It seems like people are not getting the meaning out of this at all. It is not in your place to COMPARE the two games(SWTOR and GW2) if you do not know much about the other. I simply request your **ELABORATE **insight on Guild Wars 2. Doesn't have to be anything too complicated, but short answers that add literally nothing to the argument at hand are not welcome.
