    Why hasn't this been done yet? Nobody likes teh GW? =(

    Guild Wars official site

    Yes, an MMORPG. Unlike so many other crappy MMO's, Guild Wars is for the casual gamer, unlike WoW, which could be considered "hardcore" in terms of effort. Guild Wars is designed to present a fun atmosphere for both hardcore and casual MMO-er (like me) alike. It's quest-based, so there really isn't any boring level grinding, you get ns exp from both killing the monsters along the way in whatever quest you’re doing, and for completing the quest itself. Missions net you a cool 1,000 exp (2,000 if you do the bonus).

    Max level is 20, there are 6 job classes to choose from, and every character gets a primary and secondary job class. Each class has it's own unique set of skills (nothing new here, obviously), but the customization is enormous. Each class has over 150 skills, which means on any given character you can have 300 skills to work with to refine your build.

    You can also create a PVP character right off the bat, which will be at level 20, and ready to compete against other players in an arena. You are limited to using only skills you have already unlocked in game, though. =)

    Very fun, very addicting, not so very time-consuming as other MMO's can be. Come, join me. My guild is "I Have Rats In My Anus" (click to go to my guild forum, brand new - no members xD) and you'll find me on any of the following characters: The Bloody Wrath, Frail And Rotting, and Yuki Kasume (in that order, most likely).

    I played it, but gave up after not getting a decent team four or five times. I can't beat Ring of Fire..

    One glaring misconception in that article. WoW is definately not hardcore. It's the easiest MMO I've ever heard of/played. Perhaps Guild Wars is easier, but I've heard enough compliants about it to keep from checking it out.

    If you want to talk about hardcore MMO's, look under Final Fantasy XI.
