I'm not currently playing at the moment. But I have been for about 8 years on and off. The worst part is is that my highest level is only 55 or so :X the game was that hard. I miss this difficulty.
The community in the game was solid. The majority of the people you asked informantion of would give it to you. Especially if you were in a linkshell which was as easy to get as a random guild in WoW.
Why some people might not have liked it was that it might have been TOO hard. After level 10 you couldnt level up solo anymore... at all. Or at least thats how it was back in the day. I dont know how it is now. But you literally had to be afraid walking from city to city until about level 35 or solo. Unless you had a chocobo of course ^_^ but to GET a chocobo you had to walk through level 40 zones at level 20...... You would basically have to 007 you way through the zones trying to not get mauled by the Jungle Tigers that could one shot you by sneezing on you.
It got intense sometimes man.
But does anyone still play? If you think about it, it really aged well. For being made so long ago the graphics still arent THAT bad. Don't get me wrong theyre no where near Tera or something like that. But some people dont play games just for the grahpics. Not to mention it contains the difficulty that people seem to be yearning for recently.
The interface... No skill bars or anything like that. Some people didnt like it. But this required you to make macros. These were actuallly kind of fun because you can make ou character say something unique when you cast a spell, or remind you and your party of the cooldown of the skill you just used. It helped keep a party together really.
Can someone who still plays on what would be considered a "popular server" tell me what the game is like now? I'd really like to know if they held true to what made the game unique.
Not to mention, since Final Fantasy XIV is failing so hard, Square Enix is still loading ALOT of content updates to the game very regularly.
