I'm just starting the FFXI trial...and its no different than themepark MMOs in 2018. At least as far as AI goes
FFXI does the same exact mob pinatas that WoW does in 2018 where mobs stand around waiting to be popped open...like every other themepark MMO
WTF? Literally FFXI is no different PVE/gameplay wise than WoW in 2018, except WoW looks better
The only MMO to actually advance MMO AI was Tabula Rasa. One can argue even Ryzom does AI differently, but that I feel is a lot more scripted than "natural" AI
but again...WTF? I'm playing it and its like I'm playing WoW and WoW came out many years later. I'm playing FFXI and its not even really any different than LOTRO that I'm subbed to. WTF? Why is a 2002 MMO the same as MMOs in 2018? Why has the genre literally not advanced (as far as themepark MMOs go, but AI in general for MMOs) since 2002? Why for PVE do we still get pinatas and not what Tabula Rasa was doing with actual AI?
Literally playing FFXI feels no different than any themepark MMO I've played in 2018...that is how sad the MMO genre is for PVErs
