This has probably been asked a lot so I apologize. This relates both to FFXI and FFXIV.
Lately I have been wanting to play an MMO again and after trying Rift and Guild Wars, I decided to come looking again at FF and I just have a couple of questions.
1. Is FFXIV worth starting now and is it still free to play for the time being?
2. Depending on the answer to #1, is FFXI still alive and kicking and worth going back to?
FFXI was one of two MMOs that I really enjoyed playing and have been wanting to start again, but I feel it might be a bit late to start again. If FFXIV has had some great improvements then I will be starting here I guess. Just wanted some people to fill me in!
