    *People who hate item malls.

     

    Edit:

    Also of course:

    * People who like Final Fantasy.

    Now now, FFXIV only has boring quests, mediocre graphics and a neverending loadstory.

    You must be playing something else.

    Please give an example of a good quest, and an mmo with better graphics.

    Speaking of "boring" sidequests: I laughed out loud when I was asked to use (Spoiler warning)  cactuar piss on certain cadavers in the desert. XD

    Your opinion is your own but I don't see eye to eye with you.

    1. Quest system isn't new but no game has made a better quest system, any mmo out there is like this.

    2. Story is great for an mmo even though reading can be a pain its interesting.

    3. Graphics are breathtaking in some areas and great everywhere else, better than guild wars 2 by a long shot

    Story telling : identical to SWTOR, plus excessive loading is annoying.

    Class system : similar to games like Eden Eternal. Nothing new.

    Graphic : is ok, not great.

     

    Why this game is so popular now?

    I have no idea. But my guess is that,

    1. it is attractive to Final Fantasy fans. I haven't played any of FF series (I tried, but it wasn't really my thing.), so I guess I can be objective or even critical to FF environment.

    2. end game contents 'may' be cool. But it is a long way for a gamer who's worn down by similar games.

     

    So, conclusion is this.

    Do not expect anything new. There is no new contents for new players. If you are looking for something new, you will be disappointed.

    But if you are just looking for something to spend your  time mindlessly, 29$ isn't really a loss for this content imo.

    If you like Japanese style fantasy world, you may even love this game. (I don't like them.)

    Personally, I am not sure if I can keep leveling my char to max level. I was already bored after 2 hours.

    You seem to be unable to understand sentences longer than 5 words professor so here's one with four; Its a first impression. 

  • JuaksJuaks Cocoa, FLPosts: 274Member

    If you don't like Asian style fantasy world, why did you even bother buying a FF game??

    Next time you want to post your conclusions and give people advice in forums about a game and specially a MMORPG, try to invest more than 2 hours and some people might take you seriously.

    Well I won't be Mr popular with my comments but,.... i agree with the OP on some things. This game will die quickly.

     

    The graphics and sounds are wonderful,... good. 

    That being said,.... the community is terrible. 90 percent of the 1000s of people running around dont say a word. They are quest zombies running around, grabbing the ! and kill x of y, etc. 

    There is no point in ever making another character,..... you better name yourself well, better spend an hour or so on making the character, because there will never be a reason to reroll, you can do everything on one toon.

    You leave town and you see level 1 turtle, level 2 rabbit, level 3 f rog,... really,..... REALLY? terrible. just terrible. Seeing the levels in the header and how every 50 feet there is another mob one level higher seems so cheap.

    The crafting is fun,... but will die soon. No one needs the items, the quests give people so much, and dungeon items are better. People can farm mats faster than are used by the crafting. People use the items crafted much less than can be crafted. Everything will be 1 gil soon. The players that still will have level 50 everything and not need anyone. 

    It is far too easy to level even for casual players. Leveling gives minimal sense of accomplishment because of this. 

    Overall the good graphics and exploding population make the game seem fun, but the community is very hollow. The graphics will not make up for the lack of sense of progression. Nothing you attain feels as if it was an accomplishment.

    Your admitted bias renders your OP useless and besides...everything you said is just wrong.

    Currently playing SWTOR and it's MUCH better than it was at launch.

    Could tell by the first four words of your "quest system" remark how this post was gonna go lol. I would counter to anyone reading this post to try the game yourself and form an opinion. And please..... Give it more then 2 hours.

    The last two sentences.  They were seething with condescension and poison.  Why you are even commenting about it is beyond me.

    The reason that it's popular is that people played it more than 2 hrs before reaching a conclusion. Look, if you decided after 2 hrs, it's not your game, I won't tell you you are wrong. I've been there, Played MMOs for less time than it took to download and install. However, Your summary of the game is inaccurate based on only 2 hrs. You don't know the game yet. So it's fine to explain how you didn't like your tutorial and couldn't get past that, but don't tell people what they can expect. Unless you clarify that it's only 2 hrs.

    I can agree mainly on all but please, do not compare story telling marvel of SWTOR to this trash. Yet has to be made game to be even remotely close to swtor lush.

    I don't know whats quests you did, but even though there may be some similarities, it is far from the same. You're not killing 15-30 mobs for 5 drops of an item constantly. I never had an issues finding quests to do along with my story quests, why do things need to be linear? Go out and explore.

    Story telling : identical to SWTOR, plus excessive loading is annoying.

    Not even close... FFXIV's story is WAY better. The game is also a hell of a lot more lively unlike SWTOR... There's not huge zone/areas with like 10-12 NPC attempting to add to the atmosphere. The game feels and looks very lively.

    Class system : similar to games like Eden Eternal. Nothing new.

    It's really not so much about the class system... It's about the implementation and use of it.

    Graphic : is ok, not great.

     Compared to what?? The game is absolutely gorgeous and it's hands down the most detailed game I've ever played. You don't need cutting edge, cpu/gpu sucking, cartoony looking graphics to look good.

    Why this game is so popular now?

    I have no idea. But my guess is that,

    1. it is attractive to Final Fantasy fans. I haven't played any of FF series (I tried, but it wasn't really my thing.), so I guess I can be objective or even critical to FF environment.

    This is my first FF MMO game and I'm losing it, I can't put it down. I can do so much and I don't feel forced to do one thing... and better yet, i do it all on one character.

    2. end game contents 'may' be cool. But it is a long way for a gamer who's worn down by similar games.

    Maybe so, but the ride was very enjoyable for me. 

    So, conclusion is this.

    LOL, well maybe in your opinion but mine is the opposite swtor was the trash,but hey the voice acting was ok.

    Discussion was about voice acting. :-) For you is ok, for me is best ever seen in any mmo. Remember any other game with tough moral choices, like sacrifice innocent trapped people or npc "friend" you have encountered in past mission? Or to spare strong sith opponent which start to learn to be jedi and you encounter him later at the end of game? Few times - game or not - I have been thinking about for days after.

    The only complain I hear at all times is that this choices does not influence later gameplay. I do not how could this be possible not to interfere with different choices of other players. So far this if SF matter and I do not bother with that.

    But it is for me incredible fun to be able to respond kind or bad and according to this npc react. After swtor I simply can not enjoy any other questing .... once I have been reading quest text, now I just barely read something and skip. Great voice acting was also Aoc, unfort only up to l. 20 and with no moral choices.

    Combat is incredibly fun as with Wow, also war, aoc, ....

    FF does not have anything from all this. Just beautiful and very small areas. With great weather conditions. Here all ends.

    I love how you can say an entire game is boring after only playing 2 hours. Its like saying "I know how a novel is going to end after reading the first 10 pages". You know only the starting zone of the game during the first 2 hours. How about leaving it and seeing the rest of the game before you make any snap judgements of the game.

     

    I did just that. I gave it 30+17 levels but it was still as boring as the fist 2 hours so I gave up.

    So he's actually pretty spot on.

    OP, move on asap imo, don't waste time.
