The current end of FFXIV's story. Some of you may have seen some of it, but these are all the cutscenes unedited and full in 1080p.

Do note that Part 5 is slightly different due to me being Gridanian and Part 6 I am talking to different people.

Personally, I believe that FFXIV has done a great job on the story, albeit the first 30 levels are only introductory and a bit plain at times.

This definitely shows the potential of future content.

I agree the rank 46 mission was great and I feel it only told of greater things to come. I think this basically only was a prelude setting the foundation for something much bigger.

SE surely still know how to tell a great story! I can't wait for the early 2011 update which will bring a continuation to this epic adventure!

I wouldn't say story was epic, but it was alright. Although the mobs could be a little harder... I cleaved those those chumps like butter on my Gladiator but died 2 times because of the stupid cannon 9999 damage... (first time didn't know wtf was going on, second wasn't paying attention when it flashed a red circle.)

Would be awesome if you had to fight a boss every main quest, a lalafell can wish...

Anyone else watch those and think "Darth Vader..."?

Entertaining, and at the risk of sounding overly negative, I'd have to say it's a shame that there's such a disconnect between the game world and the story. I mean, it seems to me that a person could just wait for the mission cutscenes to be posted on youtube, watch them, bypass the whole grind and everything that goes with it and still see the best the game has to offer. All I can really say is that hopefully as Yoshida is filling up the "theme park" he keeps a close eye on how all the rides correlate with the theme. No point adding in all kinds of chocobo this and minigame that if it's still just a break between grinding doblyns so you can toddle off to cutscenes that actually lend the impression there's something interesting going on in the world.
