Guild Wars

So, I recently reinstalled the MMORPG entitled Guild Wars.

Just out of curiosity, has anyone on here played it in the past, or still play it?

Guild Wars is a pretty solid MMO.
It tried a new approach to the classic MMO setup, with instanced areas, premade 6 skill setup for heroes and pretty nice quests, some almost impossible to do without a party. If you have all the expansions, it's a pretty good past time...

I use to play it, thought about installing it again the other day since I haven't played it in a very long time.

I purchased the first game, Prophecies, the day it was released, and I still hop on for a bit every week. I own all of the expansions, too. It's a very fun game. As Hellriser mentioned, it takes a different approach than most MMOs. Eight-slot skill bar for yourself, and you are allowed to carry up to 7 heroes (AI controlled henchmen) with you into instances, or "explorable areas", providing you have the expansion(s) for them. You can customize your heroes with any 8 skills you choose, excluding the PvE-only skills, which are reserved for players. You are also able to carry up to 7 other real players (11 in some areas) instead of your heroes into those instances.

Unlike most MMOs, players are met in towns and outposts, not aimlessly wandering the map. I haven't been too up to date with GW2, but as far as I've heard, it will be an open world, with no instances. Looking forward to it

I also bought Prophecies the day it was released (I made sure I had it pre-ordered, so I picked it up from the shop on release day.) The expansion packs are all worth the buy as well.
The only issue I have with the game is that a lot of the users are friendly to be honest. For one or two quests/missions they are fine, but when it comes to joining a decent, sustainable guild, they're dreadful.
I'm also very hyped about Guild Wars 2, so hyped I don't remember the release date, can anyone remind me? Either way though, I'm going to be sure to get it and see what it's like!

I actually tried it once and was really surprised at the low pc requirements needed to play the game considering the pretty high graphics. But I just couldn't get used to the map being separated into 'zones'. I prefer the open world style much more, which is why I can't wait until Guild Wars 2 .

Oh I also forgot that you can't jump.

BSODs while playing Guild Wars 2, usually
A bit of background about the PC. It is a hand-me-down from my brother who had overclocked the cpu for around two years before giving it to me. He suspects it might be the cpu/motherboard dying.

Currently plating; Guild Wars
I bought the Trilogy pack of Guild Wars, but didn't have time to play it. Now I playing it and it's pretty fun, visuals are great and the combat can be satisfying. The quests tend to be "fetch the item" but I'm enjoying it so far. Should be an interesting game for winter season in my location.
