So I recently bought a new monster-computer, and was sort of interested in jumping in to Guild Wars 2 since I enjoy the MMO style of play, and the game received rather excellent reviews. However, since I'm rather hindered by college and exams and stuff I figure I won't have that much time to group with others, so I was mostly wondering how the game stands as a single player? I was even thinking of jumping back into WoW at first (would require me to buy both Cataclysm and Panda), but since GW2 have no subscription it appeals more to me.
So would you recommend I pick it up? Or can you think of another similar gameplay experience that might be better suited for almost entirely playing alone?
EDIT 5 HOURS LATER:
Well, thank you all for the replies in here! Game is downloading now, and my ID is Cincaid.4609 if anyone cares. :)
Guess I'll jump on Yak's Bend and see how the latency is, and if it's terrible I'll switch to some EU server instead. Been looking at the professions while staring at the download-screen, and so far Thief seems to be my choice. See you in-game, hopefully!
