'''''Guild Wars''''' is an MMO produced by [=ArenaNet=], a splinter group formed off of Creator/BlizzardEntertainment, and published by the Korean [=MMO=] giant Creator/NCSoft. It has been both lauded and criticized for its notable and unique business plan, which is quite simple: It's an MMO that requires no monthly fee. Part of the reason is due to instancing, and part due to design. Anet has said (to paraphrase) that it's not aiming to be a ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' killer, but that it's happy being its own niche. Indeed, ''Guild Wars'' was largely an experiment to see if this business model could even succeed in the first place, which it undeniably has.

** The [[http://wiki.guildwars.com/wiki/Kind_Of_A_Big_Deal most prestigious titles]] are all references to {{Anchorman}}. My Guild Hall does smell like rich mahogany.

** Many character names. The Kurzick elite armor crafter in ''Factions'' is named [[EVideogame/arthBound Giygas]], an Asuran named [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender Sokka]] is a warrior and tinkerer, another couple of Asurans named [[Film/{{Aliens}} Hicks and Vask]] accompany you when burning out a bug nest, and there's an Inquisitor [[Series/TwentyFour Bauer]] who's very enthusiastic about torture. And that's just for starters.

* GameChanger: For the entire MMO genre. While most of its more radical innovations (the absurdly low level cap, ultra-rare gear having stats no better than common gear, the strict segregation of [=PvP=] from [=PvE=]) never really caught on, back in 2005 most [=MMOs=] before ''Guild Wars'' ran on a monthly subscription basis. Now? The ''only'' major [=MMOs=] to still have a subscription fee are ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft''[[note]]which is big enough to ''afford'' to retain a subscription fee because it's too big to fail[[/note]] and ''VideoGame/EveOnline''[[note]]which is... a special case[[/note]]. Free to Play is now the ''standard'' thanks to ''Guild Wars.''

* HeyItsThatVoice: Don't be surprised if [[MauriceLaMarche Vekk]] happens to ask you [[WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain if you're pondering what he's pondering.]]
** And in ''Prophecies'' and ''Factions,'' the male player character is voiced in cutscenes by Creator/SteveBlum, aka [[Anime/CowboyBebop Spike f'ing Spiegel]]. As is the Charr hero Pyre in ''Eye of the North''.
** In ''Guild Wars 2'', Zojja, an important Asuran NPC, will be voiced by FeliciaDay.
*** And for anime fans, Logan Thackeray is voiced by Troy Baker (Greed from full metal alchemist) and Rytlock Brimstone is voiced by Steve Blum (Spike Spiegel from cowboy bebop and Amon from The Last Airbender: The Legend of Korra )
