So I wanna get into this game, and I keep telling myself to just stomach the quest hub-heavy early game because I hear the game gets better later on. But the question I keep asking myself is: Why don't I just play FFXI? I really haven't played FFXI all that much, but I know a decent amount about it. From what I can tell it seems to be deeper and more of a sandbox than FFXIV:ARR.
So I guess I'll put the question to you guys who probably more than me about BOTH games. Why are you playing ARR instead of FFXI?
