4. Guild Wars 2
- Business model: free-to-play, paid extras
- Platform: PC
Guild Wars 2 is a controversial production. The creators distanced themselves from their first game and decided to lead the continuation in quite a revolutionary direction. This genre rarely sees games in which exping consists mainly in participating in events on the map. The combat system stands somewhere between the tab-target and the non-target. However, has abandoning the usual patterns turned out a good idea? This makes Guild Wars 2 unique game, but also not a game for everyone.
On the one hand, the devs have created the best mount system in the genre, which has a real impact on the gameplay. On the other hand, they offered a horizontal character development, in which our hero ceases to grow in strength at some point – acquiring better equipment does not matter, it is just your own skills that count. It is supposed to be something really interesting, but it also gives you little to no incentive to play.
