Edge:There is a formula at work in every MMOG. This is usually thought of from the developer’s perspective: the systems and structures a game uses to funnel a large number of people into a large amount of content and keep them there. The player’s side of the equation is subtler: what type of person do you need to be to settle on one MMOG as opposed to another? Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is one part traditional fantasy MMOG, one part Final Fantasy game. One part console, one part PC. To fit into its formula, you’ll need to fit that pattern as well.
