The last time I was this nerdily excited for a game was for FFXI. I thought it might be fun to have a little numeric tally so we can gauge our nerd power. :)

Tally up your points and post your totals!


5 POINTS - Pre-Ordered the Collectors Edition of FFXIV.

10 POINTS - Pre-Ordered more than one Collectors Edition of FFXIV.

5 POINTS - Checked for FFXIV news at least 3 times a week since E3 of 2009.

5 POINTS - Check the ZAM forums everyday for new tid-bits of information.

5 POINTS - Searched diligently for alpha leaks and videos.

5 POINTS - You have seen over 10 alpha videos.

5 POINTS - You made a list of possible first and last names for your character.

3 POINTS - Downloaded and ran the FFXIV Benchmark.

5 POINTS - Watched the Benchmark viewing every character pre-set just to see the models.

20 POINTS - Purchased a brand new computer for the SOLE reason the benchmark didn't give you the score you wanted.

5 POINTS - Saved up sick days or vacation time to play FFXIV on release.

20 POINTS - Your significant other left you because they found you licking a FFXIV poster.

20 POINTS - Got the FFXIV logo tattooed on your back.

20 POINTS - Tried to find labs that will cryogenically freeze you for three months.

20 POINTS - Made a fake SquareEnix badge, broke into the SquareEnix headquarters and pretended to work on the Beta.

20 POINTS - Served significant prison time for breaking into SquareEnix headquarters.

20 POINTS - Got out of prison only to be arrested later on assault charges for trying to get a lock of Nobuaki Komotos hair.

20 POINTS - Paid several midgits to pretend to be Lalafell for the afternoon.

20 POINTS - Several days later one of the midgits broke into your home stole your TV, computer, and your humidifier.

20 POINTS - You resort to selling yourself on the streets to make enough money in time to replace your stolen computer and the Collectors edition of FFXIV.

20 POINTS - Your throat is really dry because the midgit stole your humidifier.

20 POINTS - Got kicked out of your apartment because you were not willing to sacrifice your trick money for rent.

20 POINTS - Homeless for 3 days and your throat was so dry you contracted a serious case of strep throat.

100 POINTS - You cry a lot.

I'm coming in at a 28, lol.



Would be higher but I already knew what my char name(s) would be, and I only watched the Lalafell benchmark vid.

I do plan on upgrading my comp for XIV, but haven't done so yet, and the benchmark isn't the sole reason for that.

I got a perfect score! Thank you for putting my life into perspective Nerdy-o-meter! Honestly though, I did just purchase a new computer. I told my friends and family that I was due for an upgrade but we all know the real reason. Now to go freeze myself for 3 months...

. . .70 , if you count the PC we WILL be buying for the sole purpose of XIV (and the pathetic excuse my fiance and I made that it will also run my graphic software exceptionally well, thereby enhancing my career! A good investment.. yes??)

I upgraded my computer partially in anticipation of FFXIV, before the benchmark came out. I'm giving myself half of this.

20 POINTS - Your significant other left you because they found you licking a FFXIV poster.
She'd lick it with me. I'm giving myself +10 for that.


73 points.

Never confuse your inference as the listener for an implication of the speaker.

Good games are subjective like good food is subjective. You're not going to seriously tell me that there's not a psychological basis for why pizza is great and lutefisk is revolting. The thing about subjectivity is that, as subjects go, humans actually have a great deal in common.
