I'm not sure if anybody has noticed this, or cared, but i've always liked the font used in FFXI for player names, it was just a simple subtle white, nothing that really jumped out, it just seemed natural.
after leaving FFXI for WoW, i almost couldnt stand looking at the fonts used for player names, they were bright blue/green/red and the font used kind of made them pop out at you.
after seeing this image of XIV, im glad to see that they have stayed with the subtle, dare i say "classy" fonts for player names, id go as far as saying they are slightly better than those used in XI.
I did however, like the fact that in WoW, they gave you the option to hide you're player name, while leaving everyone elses on the screen. in final fantasy XI, either all names were up, or none were.
so unless you wanted to walk around not knowing what anything/anyone was, you had to stare at you're own name above you're head every second you played, it got kind of annoying.
anyone have any thoughts on this?
i realize this is sort of a meaningless/irrelevent topic, but with the lack of info lately..... yea.
