Reading a few major review sites and forming your opinion from just that is pretty naive. It seem people these days just want to be told what to do rather then form their own opinion.
And for those people posting the bad reviews on this site, yes. Yes they are trying to convince people not to play the game. Why else post it. I said it once, and I'll say it again...
I see this site as a Fan site. For fans of the game. This site wouldn't exist without the people that enjoy ffxiv, or ffxi, etc. If all there was were people dissing the game, then no one would even be here. They would all just find something else to do because theres no one to annoy with the negativity other the other people being negative.
See my point?
I haven't played the game yet. If I had come to Zam, the only MMO forums I browse, and read nothing but positive remarks and wonderful reviews of the game, and then jumped into the apparent problem-riddled game that FFXIV currently is without warning, I would undoubtedly never return to Zam and probably would abandon FFXIV prematurely as well.
By being informed on the many negatives of the game, I know that if I DO decide to play soon rather than wait for fixes, I know the problems to expect and will be more tolerable of them.
I've read probably as many bad posts as good posts on these forums the past few weeks, and I can't understand why anyone would want to silence the negative posts. Whether you agree or not. FANS of a game can still discuss its weaknesses and problems. I think the term you were looking for was "fanboys," where you irrationally defend a game and act like its perfect.
Anyways, I thank 75% of the posters on these forums, positive and negative. The only posts I feel are pointless are the trolls and the ******* contests some of you boys get into.
Hope I didn't offend, Taru, just expressing my differing opinion and that I appreciate the negative posts, personally. Edit: Changed verbage to "******* contest" to avoid being offensive. :) Edited, Oct 19th 2010 9:35am by RivenKito Edited, Oct 19th 2010 9:36am by RivenKito
