that with all the potential this game has, it can only get better. >.>;
HAHAHAHA.. That's right, you keep telling yourself that and you'll start to believe it, it's Psychology 101. I like the game, really I do.. I've been playing it for weeks and EVERY DAY I find one more thing broken with it so "it can only get better" isn't working...
Last night, I discovered that if I select "mine" and then run away from a spot, I can mine it from 30 feet away
IMO, it's a bit of a stretch *pun intended* to say things are only going to get "better".. The more I play and learn about the game, the more I find things broken with it.. I just don't see how SE could fix all these issues considering they haven't even acknowledged 98% of them.. I've found dozens upon dozens of annoying bugs in the game that haven't even been discussed on the forums.
IMO, setting yourself up with the "It's only going to get better mentality" is just going to lead to you being disappointed with the game.. The more you play it, the more you find wrong with it, that's a FACT and it's the current state of the game...
If you're going to play it, you should be playing it with the expectations that every day you're going to find new bugs/problems with it and it's going to seem to get worse and worse for a while.. It's a sad state of things, but if more people played with the "It's only going to get worse" mentality then maybe there would be less explosions of anger/frustration/rage on the forums..
That's what I've been doing, and now I pretty much play with the expectation of finding a new issue/bug in the game everyday, rather than let it stress me out or be disappointed with the game, I just keep on playing because that's what I'm expecting.
So playing the game with the "It's only going to get better" mentality is a bad idea because you will be more and more disappointed as you find more and more problems with the game.
So yea, I play with a "It's only going to get worse" mentality so I don't have any expectations out of SquareEnix to actually fix any of these issues any time soon so I won't set myself up for disappointment if they don't. Edited, Oct 30th 2010 8:57am by Sidicas
