I havnt played FFxi in 2 years and i miss it alot. i messed around with rappelz and a million other games but there has never been a game that had me hooked like ffxi. Will there ever be a game like ffxi and will ffxiv be any good?
Hard to say but unfortunetely I don't have a crystal ball. ><
People who tend to have a lot of time invested in FFXI just don't want to put it down for anything else.
Those who get bored easily tend to leave and come back whenever they have withdrawl symptoms.
