One of the things that I like about video games is being able to play the hero. In real life, I don’t get a chance to slay a dragon and to save the beautiful princess. In real life, things are rarely that simple. (Although, I imagine that killing a dragon in a modern city would be rather complicated.) Anyway, the point is that ArenaNet takes a somewhat opposite approach with Guild Wars lore. Episode #46 of Lost In Ascalon illustrates the situation.
Just about everyone hates you in Guild Wars. It’s really starting to annoy me. People wonder why I’m so xenophobic towards the other races. For example, I refuse to group with Charr. If the other races didn’t call me colorful phrases like “Mouse”, “Bookah” or “Two-Legs”, I wouldn’t have thoughts of genocide. I’m still of the opinion that ALL CHARR should be wiped out. Old video games were simple like that. You held down the fire button until everything was dead.
Anyway, Photics is officially in expansion territory.
Where will the story go from here?!
