Here at The Classic Gamer, we have chosen to invest time in both of these online gems. Which do you prefer?

Diablo 3 versus Guild Wars 2.

Diablo was one of the original multiplayer action RPGs available for play on the internet. Every action RPG released on the PC & MAC since then has been compared to this impressive series. During its earlier incarnations, it was considered one of the best RPGs around. Games like Guild Wars really make you question that with Blizzard’s newer releases of Diablo. We love a good dungeon crawl. Diablo 3 provides exactly that-dungeons and lots of them. The graphics are classic, the music is fitting, and overall it seems like a great addition to the series.

Blizzard has made Diablo 3 available on the home gaming consoles to cash in from a new market. Even though it adds some local multiplayer elements, it’s still a grinder.  Although it has a popular title, many gamers have been unimpressed with the lack of direction in the series. Die hard Diablo fans will stick around, and I’m sure new ones will join. Diablo 3 is just a classic loot grinder. We enjoy that, so it’s cool.  We also love revolutionary and unique perspectives like we’ve seen in Guild Wars 2. Diablo 3 versus Guild Wars 2, who wins? We want your feedback.

Guild Wars 2 is a massive multi-player online role-playing game for PC and MAC designed by ArenaNet.  ArenaNet was founded on the principles of doing games right.  They do a lot of market research to avoid the pitfalls gaming companies have run into in terms of illogical and played out game mechanics.  When they built the original Guild Wars, their bold model for selling the game with no subscription fees was amazingly successful.  Guild Wars 2 is a more in depth version of the original. Whereas in the first game, there was more of a multiple character strategy element.  This game has emphasis placed on the fun side of MMORPGs and it shows!

The only negative to this game is the steep PC requirements. Guild Wars 2 has incorporated some of the best elements of the RPG genre and fixed common issues like one man loot grabs and running back and forth to NPCs. Not to mention the graphics in Guild Wars 2 are… amazing. As a result of its impressiveness, it requires a higher end proccesser, video card, and internet bandwidth to run.
