Final Fantasy XIV’s vast and well thought-out world can be abused by players now for the PC, PS3 and PS4.

    Got to admit, redoing FFXIV was the right thing to do, I don't play anymore, but it's literally the best MMO out there, they would kill making a Star Wars MMO.

    the fuck does "content driven game" even mean?

    We'll continue adding content, so continue paying your subscription even if you find the game boring. The guys that made all that boring content will make something good next time!

    That's what it means.

    "...a highly important aspect of any MMORPG that most players certainly do not skip over or disregard completely."

    Except Phantasy Star Online 2.

    What content? No really, because 4 months it takes to release new content only makes for about 2 months worth of actual playing. Maybe. And we get idiotic niche content like LoV, which nobody asked for, and looked like it took up the entire development team to make. Not to mention most of 14's development has been split to work on 15 and 7. The content 14 is delivering is infuriatingly lacking, and artificially elongated with stamina draining fights, or purposefully grindy gathering of materials for gear.

    It's getting pretty hard to want to keep playing it.

    You could always subscribe for 2 months, stop paying for 2 months and repeat..? It could actually be a good thing that the game's content can be played in a shorter amount of time. MMORPGs are infamous for being huge time sinks if you want to play them and enjoy the full experience, leaving you no time to play other games, but FF XIV would not be that much ofa time sink because of this, so... see the glass half-full, I guess.

    Complaining about grinding in FFXIV, guess he never played FFXI.

    I mean the problem I'm facing is that I WANT to play it more, but I don't feel like the game wants me to play it. The only content options aside from daily beast quests, or daily experts, are the most grindy, most boring, content imaginable? That or hardcore raiding. There's little middle ground, and there's no solo content at all except to crafters.

    Same shitty fantasy lore you see almost anywhere. Please, Square-Enix, play The Secret World, then come back and lower your head in shame.

    Seiken Densetsu 1 was actually fine. Almost Dark Souls-ian style story and not less tragic. But they turned it into this cutsy wonderland right with part 2:"Secret of Mana" that makes you vormit endlessly.

    Shut your mouth, Secret of Mana is a classic. Seiken 3 as well. It only got unbearable once we got into Legend of Mana.

    "The Secret World"

    It is just some shitty western urban fantasy. Like that is any original. A dogshitstain game ripping off from countless sources with a "durr hurr everything is true" nonsense. How is this garbage even still alive?
    I cannot wait to play Chronicles of Elyria, a game where your decisions will truly matter and affect others. Where you actually age and die, and the economy will actually be realistic.

    Good luck with a game that is not even out yet. Pay2win and massive griefing will be rampant. Besides, this is about lore.

    Remember when The Secret World marketed itself as a game that does not have leveling?
    In reality, it was just leveling skills instead of characters, or some shit like that.
