Majority of all FF games share something from one or more of the FF titles. Why do people complain about something commonly known or commonly used in the new FFXIV where something, if not everything, has been used in multiple situations of the the FF titles long before FFXI.
Ahriman - FF1,3,4,6,7,7cc,9,10,11,12,Tactics,Tact-A,Tact-A2, CC
Antlion - FF2,4,5,9,11,12rw,tactics,tact-a,tact-a2,cc
Bomb - All but the first.
Cactaur - all but 1-5
Molboro - FF2,4,6,7,7cc,8,9,10,10-2,11,12,12rw,tactics,tact-a,tact-a2,cc
Just a few examples for just mobs.
Not to mention Chocobos, Moogles, and in all FF titles not including the first, we have Cid.
How is this case any different that it has to be called copied off FFXI when FFXI is a copy of all the FFs long before it(aside from the MMO part)?
Even the 'recycled' Raptors that some people are ******** about are from FF1. And soul flayers. and corses.
OP: People can be whiny idiots. They ***** about everything because they feel entitled to. You get the type with every game, in every forum. They exist, essentially, to bring everyone who is enthusiastic about something, down. It's internet sadism, really.
Now, before I'm accused of generalizing, there can certainly be valid concerns about the direction of a game which should
be discussed. But really,
calling the game XI-2 based on some trivial similarities that ultimately
nobody cares too much about, especially at a point in time in which, let's face it, we still know little to nothing about the game, is a total overreaction.
It's like calling FFXII FFTA-2, because they share the same races and a lot of key similarities.
Don't worry about them. They can complain all they want but in the end, they're not going to be the judge on whether you
enjoy the game or not, or if it's a good game or not. Edited, Oct 8th 2009 7:59pm by Kirbster
