Sorry, but it seems to me there are a lot of liars in the FFXIV community. Anyone who defends the game and says it's good is either lying or has absolutely no experience of what a good MMO is. And to give it high scores in forums is just deceiving the unwary and causing them to waste their time and money. I suppose there are people who are amazed simply by being able to move an avatar on a computer screen, but they shouldn't be writing reviews touting such an egregious slap in the face as FFXIV. And if you think someday, somehow, miraculously, the game is going to transform from an ugly duckling into a swan, I fear you're deluding yourself. I hope SE is reading these negative comments. They should be ashamed.

Sorry you feel that way
but what alot of people think is "good" is this cookie cutter crap blizzard puts out
Im sorry, but I like a little bit of challenge in my MMOs, and to also make them not feel like a job at endgame
In the last 2 years i have been in several launches, and every game gets blasted for "not being wow"
Aion got blasted for being too hard
every other game got blasted for being too easy
there is on way to satisfy people it seems
Now granted, FFXIV has its issues, every game does(even games that have been out forever)
BUT at least with this game(which I am enjoying btw, thats the biggest thing for me) At least i havent finished the game and everything to it already like i would have for almost any other game out there by now(even wow i could finish everything this fast)
