Sony, Square-Enix and Blizzard are all game development companies, though Sony obviously makes more than just games. So using your logic none of them would be a carpenter.
Exactly my point. When I hand over cash to my mechanic, I expect my car to be fixed. The same goes for when i hand over my money to a game developer that has experience, I expect to recieve a game that is not broken by design flaws and gameplay.
Have you ever played an MMO that was "complete"? Go look up WoW's original Talent trees and Abilities, then look up how often they've changed since release.
This has nothing to do with WoW. I played FFXI at NA release and also played WoW at release. I stuck with FFXI and played for 4 years or so, I played Vanilla WoW until level 15 and shelved it. I later came back to WoW and enjoyed their end game raiding and challenging it was. TBC BT/Hyjal/Sunwell, and then hard modes in LK. Here's my main: http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Firetree&cn=Beefnbeer
Yeah I did End game, I.E Hard modes in ICC at 5% buff. I'm not content with badge farming heroics like most of the people that attack wow are about. I haven't played WoW in 5 months. I been awaiting FFXIV, what a waste. Thank God Cataclysm ships soon, I know for a fact I won't be dissapointed.
I don't bother to vote.
Yeah nothing important about voting.. lmao
I'm also not part of the "need it now" generation that expects a perfect product on Version 1. Why do you think 90% of all programs and games have updates now-a-days. Even my phone gets monthly service and UI updates, how should this be any different. Remember when the 1st generation Xbox360's had huge overheating problems and CD tray malfunctions? I don't understand how you can doom something with potential because it's not perfect.
Call me a Fanboy, it's funny, I play games I enjoy and that's that, just happens to be that Square-Enix makes the type of games that I tend to enjoy the most.
I'm not some idiot posting on these forums. I completely UNDERSTAND and ACCEPT that mmo's generally lack in the stability and content during initial release and shortly thereafter. I am also not blind to the fact that their are some very necessary aspects of this game missing or bugged/flawed that shouldn't. I can deal with daily/weekly patches, server lag, mobs reseting, quests bugging... to an extent.
How would you like it if you went to buy a new car. You get in, and theres no AC, no Radio, no Speedometer, no Passenger seat, and no windows.. These things don't prevent the car from driving, but it sure as **** makes you want to drive a different car. Square Enix's FFXIV is drivable at the moment, but i'm dissappointed in it's lack of options and assumed necessities.
