I was just curious about the way everyone plays FFXIV.
Currently, I have my PC hooked up to my 52" LCD in my living room. I sit on my couch and keep a wireless keyboard on my lap. However, since I've been playing a lot more, I've been having a lot of back aches and I just cannot get comfortable on my couch while I play this game.
I think it may have to do with the way my body leans forward when I'm constantly typing/chatting with people in-game. Regardless, it has become very uncomfortable use the couch/TV set up.
So, I was thinking about dragging my PC back to my office room and using the desk and desk chair to avoid back aches and to have good posture while I type and whatnot. I'm also considering getting a 27" LCD monitor because my 22" seems so dinky now compared to the TV.
If the 360 chatpad actually worked on a wired 360 controller hooked up to the PC, I would jump on that in an instant. However, it does not. I'm also going to miss the awesome 5.1 surround sound if I move back to the office set up...but I do have headphones, so I guess it's not too bad.
How do you guys prefer to play? Sitting upright at a monitor, sitting on a recliner using the TV? Any suggestions on how to make a living room FFXIV set up a little more comfortable when constantly having to type? Maybe I'm just better off with a desk? Any discussion/suggestions are welcome!
