...So wait, do tell me, if you'd be so kind. What exactly is the difference between doing leves and grinding at level 1 and doing leves and grinding at level 50?
Acting like it's some ridiculous conspiracy that FFXIV got UNFAIR REVIEWS is the most absurd thing I've seen all week.
Hex, I am not saying the game did not deserve bad reviews at launch day. It obviously earned those. I am saying that the guy who wrote the PCGamer article stole his writing from other sources, which in the journalistic community is grounds for firing and, in some extreme cases, lawsuits. Plagiarism is simply the act of stealing written, verbal, or audio work from others without giving them proper credit or asking them for permission. Stop making this into some kind of "Did the game deserve bad reviews" thread. Just like all MMOs, it did at launch day, and no one will try to argue different.
Some may argue that you should wait half a year to review a MMO, but that's a different thing entirely. Edited, Jan 18th 2011 10:11am by Uryuu
