At times when you play a race, you will find yourself drawing impressions of that race building an image of who these characters are to the player. So it is no surprise when you find that you love to hate another race, but for all the right reasons. Same can be said for the human race in Guild Wars 2.
MMORPG.com released an interesting column about how humans (as well as other races) in Guild Wars 2 are designed with an amazing level of depth. So much depth that writer David North found himself loving to hate the humans for their attitudes.
I see a reflection of real Humans in representation of the Guild Wars 2 Humans. To me, it really adds to the game’s lore. It makes you connect with them, and from there you decide if they deserve your pity, or if you should feel hatred towards them. So yeah, I hate humans. But it is more of a love to hate kind of relationship. The humans are written so well, and the dialogue from the NPCs really gives you so much info, it brings another level detail to the world of Tyria. With the Humans doing so much for the lore, and their actions directly affecting the views of the other races, you strangely feel happy that he Humans still exist. I began to hope they would show up just to hear a Charr complain about them.
