We all know by now that FF games are rife with references to other FF games. In fact most of the time you can find pretty extensive lists including monsters, items, and NPCs which bear semblance to those from previous games.
The question is, in this new FF, what kind of references will there be? In FFXI I felt that there were some references, particularly with weapons, and a few monsters, but unless you were really keen on your FF history you were kind of left out (most people didn't notice the Shikaree Sisters as the Magus Sisters at first).
What could be said is the races in FFXIV are perhaps even a overt reference to FFXI in itself, but beyond that, what does everyone else think the key references will be? I for one will be disappointed if I don't see a multi-armed Gilgamesh in XIV, or perhaps some obscure reference to the Warring Triad from VI.
So then, if XIV could have a reference to a previous FF, what would you want it to be and why?
