So I just finished ordering parts for the new PC I'm building, mainly so I can start a new MMO. I've only played FFXI (Had a fully geared Dark Knight, loved every second of it) and LOTRO (mediocre Warden, wasn't crazy about the game), and I'm trying to decide if I want to start a character on FFXIV or if I want to play Rift. I never played WoW and have read that Rift is similar to that (I suppose LOTRO was to some extent as well), but it received mostly great reviews across the board. FFXIV on the other hand received mostly terrible reviews, but from what I've read the devs are working hard to make it into the game it was meant to be. So, my question is this:
Since FFXI was so appealing to me and LOTRO wasn't, do you think I would enjoy this game more, or should I go with Rift? Any thoughts/insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
