Guild Wars 2

MMO games have flooded G4! I'm drowning under a SWTOR preview, a TERA interview video, and a WoW: Cataclysm patch 4.2 "Rage of the Firelands" trailer! And don't forget it was just a couple weeks ago we learned about Dust 514, the ambitious FPS that will connect to hugely-successful EVE Online, not to mention our eager anticipation of Guild Wars 2. All this has made a few co-workers and I wonder just what we'll be doing with our lives in the upcoming months, because it certainly won't be anything productive. I'm already starting to lose sleep since discovering and following the Star Wars Galaxies emulator project.

So we've started thinking about what routes our characters will take, what we'll be spending our in-game credits on, as well as brainstorming some truly awesome guild names. ("The Justice Friends" is my personal submission, as an ode to the fantastical group from Dexter's Laboratory.) What's more amazing though is the variety we've found in each other's playstyles. We've got hardcore raiders, dedicated farmers, party-hardy players and lone wolves. Heck, we've even got people who just log on to sit and exist within the worlds these development teams have created.

Basically what I'm saying is we've got variety, the spice of life, in spades.

But it makes me curious: How do you play your MMOs? Do you play at all? Got any interesting/horror stories from your adventures? Preferably ones that are safe for work? I can't even begin to tell you about the things I did for epic lootz...
