...That you all just played a game without hearing all the rage.

I didn't get a chance to play ffxiv because my computer just wasnt good enough. I'm in the process of building a new one and the only game I really really want to play is ffxiv. I jumped into ffxi with 0 expectations about 9 years ago and ready to do the same with ffxiv. I think the biggest problem with games today is people are always putting a game down before they even get their hands on it. Everyone always has to compare a game to another one and not even play the game as the developers intended it. Now I did hear that SE royally F'd up last time around but I'm pumped to see what they have in store for us.

So, when's the last time you had to book an appointment with a new dentist, and despite having a list of online reviews that pointed out the good from the bad, you thought to yourself, "Surprise me!" and just picked one at random instead?

Now, I've liked my share of games that most people hated, and I've thought some games most people liked were highly overrated, but far more often than not, the impressions stated in critical reviews don't stray far from mine. It's what makes them valuable, especially so you don't end up dropping $60 on a waste-of-time.

The good thing about the crap FFXIV has taken is now it's possibly on the verge of being something people could actually enjoy playing for a long time. If we all just smiled and said, "Yay! Final Fantasy is perfect!" and then quietly left without griping for a moment, the game would have failed by now and they'd have no idea why.

good points xoie I totally agree. Just gotta remember most people today haven't tried XI and most online reviews gave it terrible reviews. I think I'm gonna go in blindly and see what happens this time.

To be fair, you playing it now would have you wondering along the lines of "why did everyone think it was so bad?" You'll be playing after they did the overhauls.

Back when FFXI came out, I had no idea what an MMO was, I jumped in with no expectation and I got hooked. You would think FFXIV would take what worked from FFXI and expand on that, right?

Wrong.

It seems that half of FFXIV's design was to hinder the player or to combat RMT rather than focus on making it fun. Convoluted market systems, fatigue to prevent the player from reaching cap, no quests, no sense of exploration, everything being soloable and offering no real challenge. There was more that I can't think of off the top of my head.

---

Needless to say the people involved with 1.0's design were either fired or demoted and the new team worked their *** off to get around 1.0's limitations to come up with something better. I'm fairly optimistic with where it's going, but in today's day and age there's a lot of MMO competition and the MMO crowd is a very fickle one.

To answer the question, a lot of the Android apps I play without really reading too many of the reviews.

But that's because the user reviews are basically worthless and the games are, for the most part, free.

Now when I know I'm going to be playing a game for a while, or conversely, I'm going to spend upwards of $50 plus a monthly fee, I don't want to take too many chances/waste my time and money.

Usually MMOs (at release) get pretty average scores in general, and I'll most likely play FFXIV if it gets anything more than a 6 (on a 0-10 scale).

I too, got into FFXI without knowing too much about it. But it was predicated on the history of the Final Fantasy series til that point, which was pretty decent. These last 8 or so years have been shaky for SE, to say the least, and the releases of both XIII and XIV didn't really do anything to help FF's reputation IMO.

So I'm looking at ARR with both a cautious yet optimistic eye. And I'm still blinded by my love of the series so I'd be MORE likely to play it than say other games, or if it got a lower score, but I still have my limits. Like if it got a 3.5, I'll be taking my money elsewhere...I hope...unless they threw in a stuffed chocobo or something...

The problem isn't that people are putting down FFXIV.

The problem is no one is even bothering to talk about FFXIV.

People let playable be the enemy of unplayable at release, and completely gave up.

To compare the times of XI to the times of XIV is unfair and biased. When XI came MMO'S where not a fraction of what they are today, they where games that the most hardcore and nerdy/ no lifers (That was the impression given at the time of people that played them.) only played, MMORPG'S where in their infancy back then, the media of gaming was not what it is today, it was mostly magazines and stuff back then, now we got youtube, and 500 billion sites and reviews.

Since this is a FFXIV forum i am assuming you are talking about how people put down FFXIV ? Well guess what ? We where Right! There is no if 's or but's or anything WE WHERE RIGHT! The game was not put down or beat to a pulp by reviews and fans because it was a masterpiece, the game got the reviews it got because it deserved them. Period.

No one is arguing that 1.0 didn't deserve the bad reputation it so rightfully earned (except Tanaka and the 1.0 dev team.) But 1.23c or whatever the version number it was when it ended was actually a decently enjoyable game. It wasn't polished or great but it was slightly more playable and had enough meat to the story to be a little fun finally.

We're arguing that the complaints about 2.0 are so far unrealistic. MMOs fall into the same realm as government rule:
1. You can please all the people some of the time
2. You can please some of the people all the time
3. You cannot please all the people all the time

A successful MMO is one that hits both 1 and 2, not one that strives to violate rule 3. And yet, players go into MMOs expecting to be wowed with #3 violations from the beginning. When they're not satisfied with something, but other people are, they get irritated because of the imperfections they perceive in the game, and eventually start hating and disparaging the game itself because it was not magically perfect and pleasing to them 100% of the time.

That's what we're griping about - people are whining that a game that isn't even in beta yet isn't miraculously perfect in every way.

I'll be content if the game is good. It doesn't have to be perfect, just fun and good.

I was definitely on the critical side of 1.0, and took all the crap that came with that...

"It's only alpha.."
"It's only beta.."
"It just launched, give it time.."
"It's only the first three months, give it time.."

2.0 isn't shaping up to have the same problems. Which means, thank you, they learned from their past mistakes. Now, in the interest of fair play, we need to give them a chance to redeem themselves.

It's ok to look at 2.0 critically, that's fine. It's not ok to prejudge 2.0 based on a handful of alpha videos. We have to play it ourselves before we can put forth anything like a valid opinion on the subject.

1.23v Was a decent game only if you played FFXIV on release, if you where a person who never touched or heard about FFXIV failure and jumped into the game, it was horrendous, was it a decent game if compared to WOW, Rift, Swotor, GW2 ? No not at all, is not even on the same LEAGUE! But if you went thru all the changes SE made to the game from release up until it went offline, you can certainly see that they have put work into the game, that is not the same disaster as it was, but if you din't you would be looking at a game, that has no identity.

As for 2.0 well that is hard to say, because GAMEPLAY >>> Pretty Graphics, we have yet to see the end result of the gameplay overhaul, the battle system is yet going another overhaul, what # is this already ? Fourth ? Fifth time is being overhauled in 2 Years ? The game looks pretty, **** 1.0 Look better than most MMO out there, and it still dint save it, we have seen very very little of the meat in 2.0 from Alpha, we have seen the most basic stuff as far as combat is related too, in alpha, so to say the game will succeed or fail based on that is a Stretch.

I am of the opinion that SE needs to be a whole lot more open, look at GW2 in it's development stage, it's fanbase was getting videos, interviews, gameplay mechanics, classes all the way up until release, SE has been more of "Gives us your money and we will surprise you" Which considering what went down in 1.0 is a bad card to play, the only people who even talk about FFXIV are the current players and those who have been waiting on the fence since 1.0. That in my opinion is bad.

Well consider what happened the last time people paid attention to FFXIV.

SE has a monumental task ahead of them if they're going to redeem themselves on this score. It might actually be impossible. I do however, think it would be a bad idea for them to be super open and forthright about 2.0's progress if they don't have something to show people.

What I'd like to see, personally, is some high level content executed by people that know what they're doing. Show me what I can look forward to in FFXIV.

Currently we've gotten alpha videos of some of the most lethargic gameplay I've ever seen in an mmo. If that's the best they can do with the alpha build, it's better for them not to make a huge deal of it just right now.

The genre now has to be:

1. Fast Paced twitch battle systems.
2. Platformers.

Or it's not deemed "good"

I didn't start playing XIV until May 2012. So your argument is invalid here.

You're only partially right here. There's room for slower-paced MMOs. But I'll tell you that current MMO players will tend to reject that out of hand, and SE needs at least SOME of those people to give them some money in order for this entire exercise not to be a complete waste of time and capital.

I'll tell you that I played FFXI for 4 years and loved it. Before that I played The Realm which is f'ing turn-based. It isn't absolutely required for a game to be super twitchy like, say, Tera. But the first thing I noticed in one of the alpha combat videos was what looked like a 4 second global cooldown on abilities which seems like about 3x too long to me and made the combat seem much slower as a result. This may not actually be a thing, I can't say for certain because I haven't played the game (obviously), and I don't prejudge games one way or the other. I form my opinions based on actually playing the game.

If it's slow but fun, cool. If it's fast and not fun, not cool. There's no litmus test here; the game is fun or not based on its own merits, not based on how quickly it handles its combat.

What's this have to do with anything perchance? WoW is an old MMO (just as old as XI almost, only 2 years younger.) Rift is a flatout clone of WoW and people left it in droves. SWTOR flopped. GW2 is bleeding and they're making the usual idiotic changes based around the player which will cause more people to leave it.

The only game in that which has identity as I'm sure you're trying to get at is SWTOR because its star wars, the rest is generic RPGs. XIV had no identity because Wada rushed the game out and they made the mistake of not taking FFXI and building on it much like they did with every other FF game. So she is correct, she may or may not have enjoyed it because that's her experience, you don't have to had played at launch in order to enjoy XIV (or not) after all the changes..it's quite possible just because YOU DISLIKED something doesn't mean it's true for EVERYONE.

THAT mentality is what's killing this genre ontop of the mentality that every MMO has to basically be the same...also sometimes called "meeting the global standard."

Couldn't get into WoW. Looked at most of the modern MMOs and went "meh." I looked at 1.0 and went "meh" as well - but Lahurah, who was at the time my room mate, played it even during its broken days, and what the ****, she actually enjoyed it even though we had to upgrade her Square Enix build Goddess Box to even play it. She even managed to get her parents into 1.0 for a while there.

I picked it up in May 2012 because State Alchemist was unable to make ACEN, which left me short handed and with no knowledge of XIV of my own. Rather than deal with that failure again this year, I vowed to play it a bit.

By the time I started playing, at 1.22 or whichever version that was, I was surprised and upset at myself for not giving it a try sooner. The engine was still awful, but the gameplay itself was fun, and the storylines were really interesting. By the time the servers went down, I was a 42 THM and had joined the Limsa Lominsa grand companies and finished out a good chunk of the initial main storyline.

There's plenty of room for a strategic game on the MMO market. The problem is that you can't just SHOW strategic gameplay without explaining it, and expect people to marvel at your exciting chess-like combat. Any strategy game that hits the market these days knows how to brand it as one... the problem is that FFXIV still doesn't seem to know what the challenge is supposed to be, and as a result, neither does the fanbase. Why do I care that I can kill a dragon if all that's required is for me to push the "Kill Dragon" button over and over and hope for the best?

See i understand that you are a fanboy, but you are irrelevant to the discussion, as are all of those that played in 1.0(Myself included) First off rift has hovered around 1-2 million subs, kinda hard to call that a flop, it is 4 times as much as XI ever did, and at max XIV did 50K before it dipped below 20K for a long time, so in essence did Rift reach WOW ? Not at all, but it dint crash and burn either, Neither has GW2, please do provide the proof that GW2 is dying or bleeding :) Also! Swotor did flop to an extent, did it reach wow ? Nope, did it sell more than 3million copies in a month ? Yes, did it retain 1.8mil for the first 3 months, and started bleeding then. Swotor is not going to lose money, it has already made well over half it's developing cost back and once it goes free to play it will keep earning money :)

Now that we got that out of the way, you do understand that the fanbase that currently supports FFXIV is irrelevant ? The game cannot sustain itself on the users that it already has, it has to reach out for the casuals, now exactly what % of the casuals it needs is debatable, but it does need them in order for it to survive, that is a Fact! Now if we observe those games that we have mentioned, their biggest flaw is lack of "End Game Content" swotor for example once you reached max level, all you had to do was do dungeons or pvp, the raids it had where very lacking if we compare them to WOW(Sorry but wow is the standard) that was the case for rift also, and to some extend to GW2.

There will always be people that will like FFXI and its oldschool MMO gameplay, but sadly that number of people is a whole lot lower % than those that enjoy what has become the "Standard" in MMO. Oh and what i meant by "Did you play rift/swotor/wow etc" is that most people that do not enjoy games like those, enjoy games like FFXI, and those that enjoy games like those, more often than not, will see games like FFXI/XIV like some backwater behind the times game. What more proof do you need ? The game was free to play for way over a year... yet it never reached 50K players.

SE needs to appeal to the masses, while retaining it's own fanbase, which will be tricky, and i am more than excited to see how will they pull it off, but they do need to showcase their gameplay more, i dont care about graphics :)

It doesn't have to pull from just the casuals. It also has the entire Final Fantasy fan base to pull from. There are folks that played XI but then stopped, folks that skipped XI entirely but are interested in XIV, and folks like me that played XI and XIV concurrently for a while and are chomping at the bit.

The FF fans are the ones that SE really has to hook, not just casual MMOers. The casuals will jump to the next shiny that a game company releases in six months regardless. The FF fans will play XIV until XV or the next flavor of XIII comes out, assuming 2.0 doesn't suck monkey balls.
