It's a shame I didn't get into this game years back. People talk about the great lore, I wish there was a "Lore for Noobs" series for GW, I think it would be beneficial for ones like me, who know nothing about it, but are very interested in lore leading to GW2.

That should be a good starting place for someone. From that page you can find plenty of links that should be helpful depending on how deep into the lore you want to dig, from timelines, to plot synapsis of the various campaigns, to backgrounds on specific areas or events, and so on.

If you are interested, you can start here: http://wiki.guildwars.com/wiki/Lore

It is also not too later to get in to the game. New people seem to be joining up or returning every day for one reason or another. Learning more about the story and playing through it might not be a bad reason to give it a try.

@drunkingamebar Knowing arenanet, they might actually push out something (vids/articles) to give new people a quick overview. You definitely miss out on the nostalgia and memory of how things were when they mention things from GW1 era (like Duke Barradin)

Ah thanks for the link guys, sadly I am one of those people who read something, then completely forget what I just read.

@drunkingamebar maybe you would like this, its a video blog on Lore. I did play Guild Wars and it is a very detailed and accurate representation of the Lore. It's a bit long but it covers pre-guild wars, guild wars, post-guild wars and pre-guild wars 2.
