Why can't MMO sequels just be like one giant expansion?
WoW's expansions are basically sequels. They added a ton of new tech, revamp models, added new contents. The only short of being a sequel is a new number slapped on it--oh wait, that's where the patch number came in. 1.0 = vanilla, WoW2 = BC, WoW3=WotLK

I cant believe Guild Wars wasnt mentioned on page 1! with Guild Wars 2 coming out in the next couple years its a large-ish MMO with an upcoming sequal :) you dont even get to keep your original characters (names are reserved :P)

I didn't write about it specifically but I did get a sneaky mention of it in. There was a link to one of massively's Guild Wars 2 posts up there in the first paragraph after the cut. Guild Wars is one of those games that does well with sequels because it's not a subscription MMO. There are fewer cons to starting again with Guild Wars 2 because you didn't invest a large amount of money over time into it. If they're going as far as to let players reserve their names, that's a big bonus.
