I played Final Fantasy XI for about a month and while I liked it, I found myself so far behind everyone else, it seemed like buying gil was the only way to play. And since I hate RMTs i just quit playing.
I've read many things about Final Fantasy XIV and as you would imagine its hard to get any real information from all the negative reviews and trash talking out there. I find myself asking a few questions.
How much has the game improved since launch?
Is there any way to test out the game before a purchase? (such as Collectors trial key?)
Is there still a fatigue system?
In the end no matter what anyone else says about a game I still like to play a game before judging it, and I've loved Final Fantasy since FF IV. I lived and breathed FF VI and I broke my Nintendo only rule to get a playstation for FFVII. I was dissapointed I missed out on FF XI and am hoping I can find a place in FFXIV.
