I am looking for a quote from one of the SE guys that spoke at E3 about ff14. I recall something that sounded like a company missioin statement to the effect of we aim to bring joy through our story telling, or something like that. I can't seem to find it. I may be halucinating. I have done any drugs today, but I may be a little sleep deprived. Anywho, if anyone can help I would be rather greatful.

Hugs and kisses,

Our plan, from the beginning, was to make the best Final Fantasy game available. With XIV that was our vision. We thought, "How can we make the best Final Fantasy game?" and we decided that the best way we could do that was through the MMO genre. Rather than going from "we want to make the best MMO," we want to make the best Final Fantasy game and THROUGH that, use the MMO genre. We are, however, trying to implement a lot of new systems that other MMOs have not used in the past, and so, in that sense, we may be revolutionary in that sense.

For Final Fantasy XIV, the key word that we've been using in development is the 'growth' of the character, the development of the character. We will have the same type of storytelling and the same type of high-quality graphics that XI had, but we'd also like to expand on the in-game system. Through these original new types of systems, the player will be able to grow and develop in a more natural way that doesn't put a lot of weight on to the player himself

I don't believe in good guys versus bad guys anymore… I only see a plethora of states acting in self interest… with varying ethics and moral standards of course, but self-interest nonetheless

Thank you very much for the response, but no those are not what I am talking about. The statement was more about Square Enix as a company and not so much about FF14. As I stated before, I could very well have been halucinating.

On the Square Enix corporate site, there is a section that states what the company's mission is:

I've been a fan of Square/Square Enix for a long time, but when I first read this, I respected the company even more. :)

They say "To spread happiness across the globe by providing unforgettable experiences" as one of their principles. What you said reminded me of that, so hope this helps.
