Arenanet has this contest where you have a minute to explain why you want to play Guild Wars 2. Turns out there are more than a few people interested in the grand prize of traveling to Seattle to play the game at Arenanet.
There are 86 videos in this thread at Guild Wars 2 Guru, and yes, I watched through them all just so I could post my favourites here.
I had a few guidelines for picking out what I wanted to post. There are a lot of videos edited together from trailers and video that Arenanet has released, then voiced over and edited in various ways. There is nothing wrong with clips but they didn’t really distinguish themselves with me. Some of these are quite well done so I suppose it’s a shame.
The other guideline I had was to not embed testimonials from fans. They’re very hard to judge against one another. There is a lot of passion and sincerity in those videos so it seemed wrong to pick one fans earnest representation of their fandom over another.
Anyway, here are my picks.
Oh my god it’s Tigerfeet’s entry!
Animated, imaginative, and tells a story, different from every other video I’ve seen.
This one is about Hamtaro.
On the one hand it’s adorable, and on the other its got some dope rhymes.
Awwww so sweet! I’m just going to pinch your cheeks!
SUNDAY! SUNDAY! SUNDAY!
BE THERE! BE THERE! BE THERE!
I’ll bite on anything that is animated and original.
Kudos on the voices, some of the best impressions I’ve ever heard.
Really well put together.
I thought this was funny.
That’s not usually the reaction I get when I plunge forth from the bushes at the park.
My only suggestion would have been to push the coming robotic apocalypse angle.
Points for Zork.
This space intentionally left blank.
60 reasons to play Guild Wars 2.
I feel like I just watched Gone In 60 Seconds.
Say there chum, do you like Guild Wars 2?
So I says to murtle, I says…
Billy Mays here!
And those are my favourites. There were several videos I debated whether or not to put in the post. Finally I just ended up deciding to only include videos that required no debate. Sorry if your video isn’t included.
