Ahh, Guild Wars. Though I have played many other fine MMOs, this one remains my all-time favorite. I had stayed away from GW for a long time because of reader reviews I'd read saying the game was "hard-core grouping intensive."

Boy, were those reviews way off base! GW is an exquisitely solo-friendly but also wonderfully multiplayer game.

I started the game with a free trial to Factions and really loved it from the first moment I realized that I could have henchmen help me out. I loved this feature, loved it, since it allows groups OF ANY SIZE to play and experience the content.

There was much more to love about GW, and I quickly bought not only Factions but Prophecies (and, as they came out, Nightfall and EotN), but it was the henches/heroes that really won me over. It's really too bad they are getting rid of them in GW2. :(

I totally agree, purchased GW Prophecies at launch and it never stuck, for the life of me don't remember why. After playing a slew of others over the years I've recently returned and it's been one of my fav mmo's to date. No travel time sink, gear pee war or grind. And yes hench/heroes are fun as hell. Man those graphics were ahead of there time for sure.
I'm also eagerly anticipating GW2!
