It was with great anticipation and enthusiasm that I pre-ordered and received the collector's edition in the mail last year. I was used to a slow updating and installation process from FFXI and FFXIV's beta version, so I was excited all the way up to the moment I got to actually play the game. I expected a lot to have changed since the beta, but we all know the story. I haven't played since the second week, and my subscription has been canceled.
Now the collector's edition sits in a closet among my other games, collecting dust. Today I searched for an old game and came across it again. It makes me sad. The box-art is great, I love the Final Fantasy series, I loved Final Fantasy XI -- it's such a disappointment that FFXIV doesn't deliver. I truly hope they add a lot of content in the next few months. Does anyone else feel the same way, or am I just too nostalgic?
