    But I do like action RPGs, just not guild wars. It was more grindy than anything else and the setting was flat and boring.

    It can’t have been that bad if you managed to play it for four whole years before getting bored.

    I played up till NightFall (on and off mind; I beat one then stoped till the next came out, mainly due to the lack of anything actually worth doing apart form the main quest) and just dropped it before the end. I was playing it every time with a friend but the magic had just gone at that point, it felt to samey and the difficulty curve was all over the place.
