Final Fantasy XIV

It would seem the game isn't nearly as epic as Square Enix wants you to belie it is...

All over the Internet there are people ranting about this game. Copy-pasted maps, moldy collectors edition items, and so on and so forth. Hell, even a guy I know who has the beast of a machine required to play this poorly optimized behemoth can only confirm what everyone says. The game is just boring! This is kind of sad, because I really liked the series. Hell, I am one of those few people who genuinely liked number 12. But 13 was a disaster if you ask me, and this doesn't seem to be any better. If Versus XIII can' t make up for all of this I am afraid this long going series will actually die, a slow and painful death of mediocre games.

Of course, I could be all wrong. What is your take on all of this? Is there any hope left? Only time will tel l guess...


  1. Yeah, I genuinely liked 12 as well. I'm not too sure about XIV, though. I'll just have to see for myself, I guess.

  2. Curious about this tbh. I kinda think they're heading towards the end of their creativenes

  3. I've heard mixed things about XIV. Withholding judgment until I play a trial account or something.

    I have a friend that's been playing since closed beta and he used to talk about how terrible the game was, up until close to the end of open beta, when he changed his tune completely and swore it was one of the best games EVAR. I guess they fixed a few things.
