before ffxiv i was a WoW player for quite some time (4+ years), and playing that game for that long i developed some good friendships as you might imagine. my core friends all felt pretty much the same way i did about WoW, its growing tired and redundant and we'v spent more than our fair share there and its about time for a change. after many months of shamelessly promoting ffxiv to my friends trying to convince them this is the way to go one of my best friends there tells me today he bought aion and wont be joining ffxiv. his reasoning behind the decision is that he watched a few reviews including the BFF report thats linked here through zam and thinks its not a good game.
now i understand everyone is entitled to their opinion and this game isnt for everyone but am i justified for being upset that this decision was made mostly by an obviously biased reviewer ranting and insulting a game thats been out less than 2 weeks? i mean seriously, if you watch the video hes very clearly upset and has his mind made up on the OPENING CINEMATIC CUTSCENE because he's too dense to realize theres no auto attack. and nevermind the fact that Aion has been out for like 2 years now and theres hundreds if not thousands of negative reviews for that terrible excuse for a game.
a friend decided to turn down ffxiv which has been out for a week based on a bad review and pick up Aion despite the seemingly numerous bad reviews its recieved over its 2 year existance even tho he has friends vouching for the quality of xiv and who are currently playing.
am i just being dramatic or am i entitled to be upset here?
