Why are some people making shared gaming mechanics into a big deal?

Because any sort of similarity to WoW = WoW clone, and WoW is EVILBADWRONG, so a WoW clone is even more EVILBADWRONG. I thought that was obvious.

Nobody said WoW is "EVILBADWRONG", but the fact is that we have already played World of Warcraft and its countless clones. FFXIV feels like the same game I've already played a hundred times.

If they expanded on the formula, it would be a different story, but they didn't. They went for a totally safe approach and followed the WoW template exactly.

Maybe that's why I like ARR and you don't? I haven't jumped ship to the next shiny new mmo every month. I enjoy playing a MMO for years, I'm weird like that.
