i really liked this game but the monthly fee really killed it for me. i don't like the feeling of HAVING to play a game.

LightSamus1886d ago

Then don't pay for it? By what you're saying it's as if Square Enix are forcing you to pay for it.

Eidolon1886d ago (Edited 1886d ago )

The game is more casual than FFXI and playing a hour or two once in a while is just fine for some people.. but paying $14 a month for that isn't worth it. So yes, these people probably won't pay for it... that is the point.. we understand the model and that the game/updates would severely lose quality without it or move to a microtransaction based model

theFAYEsorceress1886d ago

i'm not paying for it. that's my point. i said i don't like paying for it because then i feel like i have to play it in order to get my money's worth. i can think of better games to play that don't require a monthly fee, and so i chose them over this game.

Baka-akaB1885d ago

It's fair , still for those unaware , with a free month included , you can still enjoy a month of something akin to a decent FF tale and story ... then stop before getting charged subs . And all of that at not even the cost of a regular retail game

You know so little about economics lol. That's like saying since you paid for the buffet you have to eat the whole place.

theFAYEsorceress1886d ago

has nothing to do with my knowledge of economics lolz your comparison doesn't even have anything to do with what i was saying.

Magicite1885d ago

Best MMORPG after GW2. And probably best one thats out there. Sub fee ensures game gets proper content and often.

paradigmfellow1886d ago

I quit the game. I hated the grinding (and hunts).

ZerobyZero1886d ago

You don't really grind on this game you only do it for your relic weapon

Jubez1871886d ago

A completely optional feature? Do coil, god forbid.

paradigmfellow1885d ago (Edited 1885d ago )

RNG was not my friend. I was holding my party back for turn 9 because of my gear. I was the least geared member because of RNG and I refused to hunt. Also, SMNs has the worst ACC requirement out of all of the classes because of the egi and the gear available in 2.2-2.3.

Tundra1886d ago

The grind in ffxiv is probably the shortest grind I've known in an MMO to date. I'd say you just don't like MMOs.

paradigmfellow1885d ago (Edited 1885d ago )

I don't like MMOs. This was the first that I liked, until they added the zodiac quest line and hunts.

Baka-akaB1885d ago

The zodiac relic grinds , and the hunt system is indeed horrible guys .

Still props gotta be given , up to those , you virtually encounter no visible grind . And those will always be part of a mmo , disguised cleverly or not

I quit playing this game because it's not free to play. That's a shame because I enjoyed it, but not enough to pay $15 a month.

Master-H1886d ago

I wish there was a standard version of this game without the monthly fees that was lower on content or limited to the content on disc or something.

What're the criteria for being able to call your product "game of the year"?

dumahim1886d ago

I was wondering the same thing. Who gave this a game of the year award?

Baka-akaB1886d ago

Site like Game informer , Joystiq etc .

I dunno why it's so surprising . It's pretty common to see the title named as the best mmo of this year or the previous one .

What else is even there ? The usual suspects like WoW , Wildstar , or the truly underperforming and dissapointing ESO .

dumahim1885d ago

They're not calling it "best MMO of the year edition" They're calling it "Game of the Year Edition" which is quite a different thing.
