I've been looking for a new MMO and GW1 was on my mind. How does the game hold up to today's games?
I mean, the graphics appear a little dated, but they hold up well. the gameplay is excellent and even after all these years holds its own against modern games quite well. It's marvelously amusing and could be run on a toaster. Look it up on youtube to get a sense for the game if you want. I recommend it most readily.
It's not super active but it's still a great game. I've been playing on and off since release and I'll never stop playing as long as the servers remain up.
The great thing about GW1 is that it's perfectly good whether you like to go it alone for everything or be part of a close-knit community (Which you can join through the subreddit, the Discord server and the GW Legacy forum).
I think it's still pretty great but I'm biased.
