im not a troll. I ask the tough questions
and your question was "I think ARR will fail."?
It does not look like a question to me.
I tried 1.0, i did not like it. was so excited before launch and was so disappointed and hate lots of elements in the game from user interface to the game play.
There were stuff that I like such as the Disciple of Hands, etc.
I didn't know about ARR until couple months ago, I was just told by friends SE was going to remake FFXIV from the ground up.
I serached more and found they really have the commitment the make this one of the best MMOs, and I will give them and myself a chance on this game again. I might not like it, but it's too early to tell a game will fail when it's still in closed beta, as many stuff in the game could still change.
And how do you determine if a game is a success or not anyway?
When they are popular?? When lots of players bought it? When they win awards?
slightly off topic, I played NBA 2K13 a month ago, popular? i think so, it was "executive produced by Jay-Z"
I played it for a week, and I went back to NBA 2K11.
They release the games with lots of bugs and never try to fix it after release, the post game media conference and the NBA draft in game looks 95% the same as NBA 2K11. My player mode has this bug that you wont' be able to change the name of your player. They never find out where the problem is, they just focus on adding more elements into the game and think their fans like what they had already.
oh, I forgot to mention my friend told me it was a great game, I thought it was too until I tried it myself.
