I'm just going to be pointing out the nonsense; I'm sorry if this is found to be too rude.
This is a person who prefers FFXI, on a FFXI forum, talking about FFXIV.
This is doubly weird.
1. But this isn't an FFXI forum. Depending on the scope you were intending it's either an FFXIV forum or a MMORPG forum, but it's definitely not an FFXI forum.
2. Even then assuming this was an FFXI forum, how does that directly relate to talking about FFXIV? It doesn't connect.
Is it really that hard to see what I meant by "they aren't as entertaining"?
I get what you meant. You meant you and the minority of players like you don't personally find that type of game play appealing.
What I take issue with is you creating a blanket generalization that all games in that format are boring and implying that is felt by anything beyond a minority of players.
It was expressing my personal preference, and therefore the preference of probably a lot of other people who prefer FFXI to, say, WoW. We will like the same things.
1. Saying "a lot" is being disingenuous, because it carries the connotation of significantly higher portion than what reality reflects, a minority.
And Aion *is* single player. It's quicker to exp solo than it is in one of the group areas. The only reason to group in the abyss is for self defence. The only recognised party areas, are instances. Which, really, don't count as you're not really partying, you're focused on a goal. There's no laid back "lol you missed your ws on that colibri, loldrk", it's "WTF YOU MISSED GTFO OF MY LEGION".
Your mistake putting it in the same category as WoW then, not mine. WoW is not a single player game. It's an MMORPG with solo options.
