I know you don't actually KNOW anything for certain at this point but does anyone have any thoughts on this?
At first I didn't want to play aion because it didn't feel as immersive and 'real' like FFXI was for me. Now, however, i'm starting to think that i might have just been too much of a fan boy.
I watched a youtube video about aion's character creation and it blew my mind! Not only are there a lot of choices, but they actually work and look nice together. When i heard of the purple skinned Asmodians I thought it would look lame but the developers pulled it off!
The character models are so pretty and fresh looking. Another thing that piqued my interest were the armor models. The clothes in that game are varied and stunningly amazing. They have cloaks and actual robes that even BILLOW! The women have clothes that actually make them look **** but they also have clothes that are practical and cover them up. I didn't see a single PC who looked like another one in that game. It was really great.
In conclusion, do you think there's any hope that FFXIV characters will be as pretty as Aions? Also, do you think FFXIV will have majestic and varied armor such as in Aion?
Unfortunately, I don't think FFXIV will be able to reach them, let alone surpass them. I remember how the character you chose in the FFXI CG looked HORRIBLE in game. But after awhile I guess people just forgot about it. However, I do recognize that for its time FFXI looked pretty good. I'm really confused right now because I really want to play Aion. My problem is that I will only play one MMORPG and I want info on FFXIV so i can go ahead and make my choice...
