My Favorite moment from Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is
When I was adventuring about in South Shroud and came across a fierce little lalafell Gladiator who was close to death locked in battle. I began healing him and he stopped running and turned and faced his foe. I kept him alive during his battle and when he was done instead of the normal exchange pleasantries and move on, we grouped up together. We climbed on top of our Chocobos and set off in search of new adventures, until we would come across the mysterious Haukke Manor. We accompanied a group of DPS looking for a healer and a tank into the dungeon and faced the enemies within. We fell against Lady Amandine, and the DPS wanted to give up but the Lalafell and I gave words of encouragement and gave it another shot. We just barely pulled through and downed the boss. It was a great sight seeing our characters cheer and after that my new friend invited me to his Free Company.
It's a basic story, with just a regular dungeon run, but was made so much better by being in the beautiful Eorzea and is still my favorite moment that changed how my game would be from that point.
My favorite moment was having to go find a guide how to create an account after buying the game.
I've never had to do that in my 15 years of online gaming, but I guess there's always a first.
It was like going to 3 different websites, - crazy complicated, not sure why.
My favorite moment in Final Fantasy would have to be in Final Fantasy 4, When cecil faces dark cecil, turning from dark knight to (If I'm remebering correctly) a Paladin. He went up Mt Ordeals one thing, but came down something completely different. He had to let go of his dark side. Such a good moment.

Over the years of playing mmos I grew to dislike plate bikinis very much.
That's why, without a doubt, the most wonderful, epic and profound moment when playing FFXIV: ARR, for me, was when I ran into some random player and realized what true equality looks like:
I think it will forever remain one of the most awesome moments I had with any mmo, ever
Not really a gameplay moment, but my best time playing FFXIV was during the last Beta phase of the current release. My daughter, who was just turned four and has special needs, was sitting in my lap watching me play and eating nachos. Every time she got one with a little salsa on it she'd go "mmmmm!" followed by frantic hand waving and drinking of milk.
Every time a cinematic would come on, she'd stop whatever she was doing and stare at the screen in rapt attention until it was over. Then it was back to the nachos.
It was the year 1992, my mother got me Final Fantasy 2 as one of my Christmas gifts for my Super Nintendo, my guess is she got it on sale or something because I never asked for the game let alone knew what the hell Final Fantasy was lol.
One weekend I had my cousion sleep over and during those times that meant videos games and junk food all weekend, that night my cousion and I desided to give this game called Final Fantasy 2 a try, keep in mind we had never played a RPG in our lives, granded we were maybe 12-14 years old at that time.
Anyways that weekend we broke out the bong and booze....joking, we broke out the junk food and started playing Final Fantasy 2 and after about an hour we were hooked, I mean this was the first time we played a video game with such a story line that felt so much like a book, we were living the book, playing the book, needless to say we played all weekend and we got to a point in the game that I never will forget, this was the part where Cecil becomes a Paladin.
For some reason Cecil's ascension into holy knighthood forever touched me in a deep level of "I am bad ass now", I felt a sense of accomplisment and pride, I remeber fighting my old self (Cecil) "shedding his evil self" to become the new Cecil, the Paladin, that moment stuck with me though out all my gaming years up until this day, and is the reason I feel in love with role playing games and later MMORPG's.
Final Fantasy 2 is the reason I played and still play a class that is a Paladin or akin to a Paladin in all games, a good guy that can defend the weak.
I can say with 100% certainty that if it wasn't for Final Fantasy 2 I would not be so deeply rooted in role playing video games or MMORPG's to this day, in a way playing Final Fantasy 2 that weekend was a gift and a curse if you know what I mean, but I don't regret it one bit : )
My favorite experience in FFXIV is the battle with Ultima Weapon. There are so many colors, so many flashes of vivid, luminous, continuous light, and somehow this fight doesn't even cause a strain on your eyes. Ultima Weapon produces such beautiful colors that I uncontrollably could not stop myself from investigating its well blended attacks into the scenery such as the magitek bits, the plummeting meteors and the delayed laser eruption. Yeah, I got myself killed more than enough times, but it was worth it. You know how color affects your perception of food? Well, this battle definitely tastes good. It is purely enticing in a hallucinogenic manner. I'd buy this game just to experience this particular battle.
