Can't really compare, GW2 and Rift are two completely different MMO's going for two completely different things. Everything from the interface, abilities, controls, combat style, to the whole approach to "endgame" is so utterly different...they might as well come from two separate planets.

I'd be expecting all my money back although I wouldn't say no to a free upgrade to the collectors edition for Storm legion.

Won't happen. I paid full price for All points bulletin and that game tanked in a month, and was shut down in less than 3 months..Didn't even get a refund..lol

I'm not surprised at this. Defiance is pretty dull once you have spent a few hours in the game.

Calling a game a "clone" isn't the same as comparing two games in the same genre. I've never played Rift so I don't know how many new things it brings to the table, but I have played GW2 which offers some different ideas, though nowhere near different enough that it isn't directly comparable to other modern MMOs on the market. Considering that many people say Rift is similar to WoW, if that happens to be true, it's not surprising that the two games could be compared.

And those are people I'd call morons. They are the same folks who raved for years that every FPS released after "halo" was a copy, or they tried to compare the two. Why? Games are different. Sure, if you dumb down your comparison to: Does it have requesting, Does it use a standard UI with spells on the bottom of the screen, does it have raids, does it have pvp...Then sure..the games are similar.

But what I hate is everyone comparing games that are different simply because it's in a genre..It's the same as people comparing Battlefield and Call of Duty..The same as those comparing every MMORPG in the world to WOW. It's utterly stupid. Not saying any of those games are bad, but I'd prefer people give better reasons than..The games just like wow..boring..

I would argue that there's quite a bit more similar with many modern games than things like "does it use a standard UI with spells on the bottom of the screen." Developers are constantly taking every idea currently used in the genre and implementing it into their own games. How many modern MMOs use daily quests as a means to get players to log in more every day? How many offer as a means of leveling up, areas meant for specific level ranges where you complete menial tasks such as "kill 10 of these" or "gather 8 of those" mostly solo until you hit the cap? Upon hitting the cap, how many offer content where you repeat instanced content for the best equipment in the game, until the next expansion when new content with new equipment is released? I could go on and on, but the point is that while some players may compare just for the sake of comparing (and I find nothing wrong with that anyway really), if players find that most MMOs today feel the same it might be for a reason.

For example, I've never played or looked into Rift, but considering that it is a modern MMO, I wouldn't be surprised if it has dailies, or "kill x of these" and "gather y of those" quests. I wouldn't be surprised if it has simplistic tiered loot like "greens" and "blues." I wouldn't be surprised if you can solo to cap in a few weeks of casual playing. It might not have all of these features, but it may have others that make it eerily similar to other games (I bet it has at least 2 or 3 features I mentioned though redface.gif).
