Years ago, when ffxi came out, i really enjoyed that game. I loged in almost every single day to play it. I still have some fond memories of that game.
- Those all night xp parties i had, where id get to hang out with ppl and camp while someone pulled mobs back to us. Although there where a few times i got to pull as a bard, was pretty fun also.
- Those BCNM Fights, they were a reall challenge, and took group planning to achieve
- The journey just to get to 75, was memoriable. It was really well paced. I loved how at times i could just relax and stand around just enjoying the area around me.
I'm more into Challenging PVE, group based content, Slow paced, Simless world i can live in.
Ok now i'll compare my latest mmo "Guild wars 2" to my ffxi experiance
So i basically played both about the same amount of time each day. In fffxi it took me over a year to achieve 75, i didnt rush there and really enjoyed the journey. In Guild wars 2 i reached lvl 80 in a month and a half. No ware near enough time to enjoy the journey to cap.
Final fantasy xi, i used to put my party flag up, and i would just hang around certain areas waiting for a party, or i could just go and watch some TV and check back during comercial breaks, which i didn't mind. Gave me a break from the game. Guild wars 2 i never used the LFG Tool, and never really spend time just hanging around areas relaxing. They were always throwing events at me.
FFXI i socialized with ppl, GW 2 i rarelly ever talked to ppl. FFXI i remember player names and the things we did together after all these years, but in GW2 I literally only remember a few names in my guild, and thats only because i would frequently look at the guild roster to see who was online out of habit.
After 2 months i stoped playing guild wars 2, was a really lonely unmemoriable experiance for me, but ffxi i played it every day for over 2 years non stop, exept when i was on vacation.
Are there any games that would hook me back into mmo's like ffxi once did? Any in developement i should look forward to?
