Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Review | NZGamer

NZG - "Stagnant’ is a word that gets thrown at the current MMORPG market quite often these days. While I question the singling out of the MMO genre in this regard (show me a genre that doesn’t generally cling to the tried and true mechanics of games past), I do agree to a certain extent. I played World of Warcraft (WoW) for some five years, and Ragnarok Online for a couple of years before that, but since retiring from WoW around 2010, no other MMO has managed to hold my attention for longer than a month or two." (Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, PC, PS3) 8.8/10

I just find it difficult to believe that there are people who are basically lv 50 and endgame already. I wish I could live in my parents basement without a care in the world or have a 'job' where playing and writing about video games was a real thing.

Its people like me that were on the original FF XIV. Your characters carry over to ARR. Hope this helps. Fantastic game when you can get in. I had my lvl 20-50 jobs day 1 and just had to do job quest. I still have some jobs i haven't started but some people do have a 2+ Yr head start.

Well that makes considerably more sense then. Yeah the game is loads of fun, although getting on was a pain at launch. But I made it to lv 28 going flat out with a buddy over the long weekend. Been a long time since I've played a game that could hold my attention for hours at a time like that.
