The requirements for GW 1
Hardware Requirements Windows XP/2000/ME/98
Intel Pentium III 800 Mhz or equivalent
256 MB RAM
CD-ROM Drive
2 GB Available HDD Space
ATI Radeon 8500 or GeForce 3 or 4 MX Series Video Card with 32MB of VRAM
16-bit Sound Card
Internet connection
Keyboard and mouse
Lets think about this.. GW2 doesnt even require a card that was available when GW 1 was released LOL
I'd say the Requirements are comparatively less than when GW was released. Compared to the hardware available now as to then I'd say this game will allow a lot more gamers to play.
Still skeptical about GW2 though.. Ive been burned on 2 MMOs in 2 years (STO and SWTOR) This one is at least the GW model which is you buy it you play it as much as you like.. But Im still wondering,

I will quote the whole thing I said because you seem to have taken it out of context.

Editing posts is broke again... sigh.

Anyway, I tell them the same thing but the reason they haven't upgraded is because they barely make their bills as-is. Probably why they've been playing the same MMO (with no monthly fee) for the last 7 years. /shrug

Requirements are fine in my eyes, I suspect to hear a lot of people complaining about "lag" like all other MMOs when the actual problem is their FPS and their 7 year old computer. wink.gif

I'll probably buy the Collector's Edition, that Rytlock will look cool on my desk.
I don't buy many games so I see spending $150 as an incentive to keep the industry making good games.

edit: Just hope it supports eyefinitty correctly rolleyes.gif

GW1 was an amazing game in my opinion.

However, GW2 takes absolutely nothing from GW1... so even attempting to compare them is pointless. The only thing that carried over is certain story elements and races. Completely different game than GW1.

I suggest watching some youtube videos.. there's about a billion of them now because of the press beta.
