What Makes a Game Awesome?
Even though new games are released all the time, some games are just timeless. What makes them that way? In this article we will examine the 10 most played PC games of all time and see what it is that makes them so popular.
10. Guild Wars 2
Roar, baby dragon is hungry!
Starting off our list of the most popular PC games is Guild Wars 2. This game is one of the few MMORPGs on the market that is maintaining a steady playerbase and consistently pushing out new content. It is impressive that this game has managed to be successful when you consider its competition. The game is set 250 years after the first one and the world is once again in danger. 5 Elder Dragons have awakened and it is up to you to create a hero that can save the world.
So what make Guild Wars so incredibly popular? It is the way that Guild Wars 2 treats the leveling process. When you create your character you are immediately sucked into a huge dynamic world that you have the power to change. As you run from quest to quest you'll discover events taking place on the map. These events could range from a farm being infested by spiders, or evil cultists stealing all the bear cubs from a holy shrine, or even a big city being under siege by centaurs. These are not quest objectives given to you by some random NPC who has nothing better to do than to ask adventurer's for bear hides all day, they are live action events. After you successfully manage to repel the centaur invasion, or whatever the event was, the world changes. The city is no longer under siege and the residents thank you for your help.
So the reason you totally need to play this game is because you have the power to change the world. Your character quickly becomes a hero, not at level 80, but already at level 1. Also, did I mention that you can pick up all crafting professions? If you want to reach max level through cooking, mining, and gathering herbs, then you can do that. It might take a bit longer but your inner pacifist will be satisfied.
Freaking centaurs, no one likes them!
