The Illusion Of Choice – Final Fantasy XIV Grind

As we approach the end of the free 30 day period for the recently released Final Fantasy XIV, we take a look at one of the bigger problems that may result in less players subscribing come next month. (Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, PC, PS3)

My free month with Ff14 ARR is ending soon, but still I don't feel an urge to login to the website to instantaneously renew my subscription. I've stated before in numerous articles from the past, that FF was just another mmo that we have all seen before with just the exception that it had the name "Final fantasy" to push it forward even with all it's ills.

Through my free month of play, i leveled 2 classes to max level and obtained nearly complete dark light sets for each class. My time spent online was basically to farm either 1 of 2 instances, andampor's keep or cm. The thought of leveling another class to max level just bummed my mind knowing that it would only consist of me, grinding fates and completing repetitive, pointless quests.

The majority of the people from my fc(guild) have already stopped playing even with a week of free play still remaining. I remember one even asking, "What justifies the subscription model for this game?" Only to recieve no response due to the fact that the game does not excel in anything specific but the graphics. It will be interesting to see what the community does after their free month of play ends, but as for me, my experience with the "Jeremy Lin" of mmos is over.
