    Guild Wars Prophecies, Guild Wars Nightfall and Guild Wars Factions are all stand alone chapters in the Guild Wars Saga. You may buy them and play them individually, or you may choose to "stack" all of them on the same account as you acquire them so that your characters can travel to the various territories. There are also products like the Guild Wars Trilogy, which have all of the above listed campaigns encoded onto a single access key that you can buy all at once.

    We also have one expansion, called Guild Wars Eye of the North. This is an extension of the Prophecies missions and requires that you have a game account with at least one of the above listed chapters.

    Guild Wars (called Prophecies), Factions, and Nightfall are all separate games. If you have them all on the same account you can travel between them once you get to a high enough point in one, but they are not connected otherwise.

    Eyes of the North, on the other hand, is a true expansion and requires one of the other games. You need to be near the level cap and far enough along in the main campaign to travel there.

    Which of the three you start with depends on what you want. Prophecies has the best tutorial. Factions has the best PvP and gets you there the fastest. Nightfall has the very useful Hero henchmen. Factions and Nightfall also have additional classes. All the games have skills and equipment unique to them.

    It should be possible to get all four games as a combination pack for less than you would get any one now. And as always with MMORPGs DO NOT BUY USED!

    Guild Wars(Prophecies), Factions and Nightfall, are each a game by themselves and don't require anything else. Eye of The North requires Prophecies. But you can buy the three campaigns for like 30 dollars. Eye of the North you can find cheap too. I would recommend them all

    They add on to the original. I would suggest waiting for Guild Wars 2 to come out before getting all into it. The exact release date isn't known yet, but it is coming soon.

    Or just get the Eye of the North expansion and all is settled relatively easy.

    i would like to say something i thing you can go with The Fight: Lights Out

    If you're looking for a good workout, this game is it! I can't believe I was winded and sweaty after two fights. I only played about 30 minutes and I have no complain about the accuracy of punches and moves. I did jabs, hooks, uppercuts, etc, even tummy blows too. LOL. I was having too much fun plummeting my opponents. I have to throw real punches to be affective. My character did exactly what I did, but I noticed some of my punches didn't register. The reason could be my character hasn't level up enough to throw punches like Manny Pacquiao. Training modes help improve my attributes (strength, speed, stamina, etc). I know is too premature to write a review, so I'll stop here. My first impression is....WOW! This is fun giving someone black eyes without consequences. I wish I had this game when I was a kid, this game would prepare me to defend myself from a bully. j/k

    They aren't stand-alone games. You can travel between each.
