So, first of all, I don't post often but I do read a lot of what is said on this forum. I finally came to the realization today that I have zero expectations for FF XIV. I know that it will be a great new game, and there will be things about it that I absolutely love and other things that I will probably absolutely hate. I think that much IS to be expected. I think back to all games that I have played, and this has always been the I just look forward to whatever Square Enix puts together for this MMO. I will play it regardless, just as you all will. People will love it, and people will hate it. That point can't be argued. ^_^

everyone has expectations, even people who never played a single FF game in their lifes.

im not sure what point ur trying to make here. ofcourse you cannot argue the fact that some people might hate it, and some people might love it.... thats not exactly rocket science there, now is it ?
There is nothing either good or bad.
But thinking makes it so.

I started XI with no expectations. Just saw it at the store and picked it up on a whim... didn't even fully grasp the concept of a MMO at the time. Figured it would be similar to FFX or something...

I suppose you could say FFXI popped my cherry.

In any case, I liked it for what it was and ended up staying hooked for about 3 years until RL got a bit more demanding than it had been. I'll play XIV for what it is, albeit a bit more accustomed to the genre. I would like it to become a mainstay for a while for me.

****, we're all posting on a forum about XIV probably over a year before the thing actually gets released, so it's a bit disingenuous to try to pretend we don't have expectations. I can't really say I've ever looked forward to a game in this way before.

That's not necessarily true in my case. I'm at a point in my gaming life where I don't really care to play a game I don't thoroughly enjoy. For instance, I just finished the 14 day free EVE trial...did I like it? Yes, it's an interesting game with a lot of things I like and would want to see in other games. Will I pay for it? No, I managed to get past the huge learning curve but it still takes forever to accomplish anything and the whole time I'm going through the boring stuff so I can get to the good stuff I think "why am I doing this again?" and I can't find an answer for it.

I don't have expectations for FFXIV but requirements. If it doesn't live up to these requirements I wont play.

I will play the game either way so I really don't care all that much. I expect it lives up to the FF name and that is enough for me.

I agree with HocusP, SE has never let me down where FF is concerned, and I don't foresee them allowing themsleves to slip to the likenesses of lolFunCom.
