As I have stated before, I am one of those wonderful tech-stupid folks who give techie folks hours of hilarity at my epic cluelessness. So please be kind in responding.
Coming straight out of 6 years on FFXI, I was totally stoked about XIV. Still am, even after endless headaches in getting to that magical place where the game actually RAN. :P
My issue is that gameplay is wonky for me! I tried playing with the keyboard/mouse and thought, "There has GOT to be a better way." Forward. Stop. Change camera angle. Forward. Left. Change camera angle. This made it quite difficult to vie for mobs in an already crowded area, lol.
So we (DH and I) bought Logitech gamepads, thinking that this would be better. That answer was yes, and no. Now, instead of stopping and starting, we bounce around like hummingbirds on crack. It makes my husband motion sick, and my eyes start to cross. I yearn for the smooth movements of FFXI. I see others running around easily, so I know that folks smarter than I have an answer...halp!
It's funny, I see tons of folks bagging on a million different game aspects...but all of those are chicken scratch if you cannot move without a trash can nearby.
