Not that it should be high on SE's list, but I think areas like that which would promote social interaction could help improve the community.

That's because SE has great ideas, but usually falls way short on implementing those ideas.

I have always wondered why in FF11, the card game that was separated (and where ppl had to pay to play) was not included at some point directly in FF11, with ranking, some IG rewards, tournaments etc. Im sure by keeping it separated, there was just nobody playing it...
Now that would have been kick-*** to just defy some guy in balista and then return-game with card, all in porogo island on the beach ! :)
the camera game to capture, train and then duel with your pet was something similar, but again, implementation and related rewards (even related IG fame rewards like having the picture of the colliseum champion on a wall in athurgan for example) were not good enough.

+1 to gold saucer, but fix the rest first ;)

Minigames have always been one of my favorite things in the FF franchise. The big problem with mini-games for XIV is that SE simply can't (or won't) add anything that could take people away from the main storyline and/or leveling/crafting in their MMO titles (ala FFXI).

One of my favorite minigames of ALL TIME (in any game) was the Chocobo Hot & Cold game (and by extension the chocobo treasure hunt) in FF9. Don't get me wrong, they had chocobo digging and even added a hot and cold game later on, but it just wasn't as involved or entertaining as it was in IX. They seem to scale EVERYTHING back for their online games.

It never made sense to me why, you'd think in an MMO everything would be bigger and more involved, but that's just not the way SE does things.

Still it would nice if SE would add something like that. It'd be a lot of fun to have something like that to spend some time on in the game when I just feel like relaxing. Hopefully this is something that SE will consider adding once they start to add and adjust content. It would give me incentive to resubscribe until they fix all the other issues.

In MMOs, I always prefer social interaction to efficiency.

There is that casino thing in Uldah next to the Pug guild. Maybe there'll be something there.

well the reason for this, was because the card game wasnt part of FFXI but part of the Playonline system, Japan had loads of other games they could play through playonline as well, just seemed to people outside it was just triple triad

I've seen this suggestion come up a number of times. It seems like they envisioned Ul'dah as being something like this, but I don't know how close they came to the mark...

Never confuse your inference as the listener for an implication of the speaker.

Good games are subjective like good food is subjective. You're not going to seriously tell me that there's not a psychological basis for why pizza is great and lutefisk is revolting. The thing about subjectivity is that, as subjects go, humans actually have a great deal in common.

I think this is a great idea. I also think Uldah may have something of the sorts in the future as it has the Platinum Mirage and Coliseum.
