OK, so, you think, that this game, is worse, than this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FPOuR1CTJss
Yea, that's an actual PC title from 1995. Let's move on, shall we?
My original complaint said Looks & Feels like a 1995 computer game. Just to stop the 1995 and this and that and trollness of this thread. I think it feels like an old game yes with the current HUD. the layout. The ps3 controller scheme. it doesn't feel very modern at all. that's my opinion. for a game that is supposed to take a step back from FFXI and be "quick and fun" or whatever, they made selecting everything in the character interface and menus very cumbersome did they not?
So, you dislike the HUD (which is pretty much fully customizable in position and size), the layout (see previous), and the controller scheme, and yet, you think FFXI had SIMPLER controls? I... Just, I.... I mean come on... without macros you're constant in the menus and... you know what, look, let's move on..........
a big grey block with a bunch of letters on it? a character viewing screen , and inventory. I know this is a matter of preference. The reason for this title is people will discuss what I figured needed to be discussed. Obviously it is an exaggeration on graphics alone. yes, it's been said over and over. "it is launch" and such. but I still would have expected something a little bit cleaner. I'm coming from the perspective of FFXI mind you. playability wise, I feel FFXI is a much more accessible game rather. I started in gridania and I've seen some posts where people say the wooded areas look worse on ps3, than say the desert area, I've considered maybe making an Ul'Dah character for that reason to test that out. I think I am speaking about the HUD quite a bit here.
So, you think FFXI is more accessible. You mean, the game that doesn't tell you how to play is more accessible than one with help menus and tool tips... And, that the graphics...are.. better... than... OK um, I.... Oh **** it move on...
the idea of holding down the triggers every second when you fight, yes, the weird skipped frame animations. the thin lines representing your hp, the whole entire screen covered in HUD. I know perhaps (and I have not tried to take them down) but perhaps you can take some of these windows down. I am about to log in again. I'm giving it probably a good two months. remember I'm coming from FFXI here. It'd be the last MMO I'd want to fail. I'd like to give a shoutout to Killua125 for being cool and having open eyes
OK ENOUGH ENOUGH I CAN'T!
You're praising KILLUA for having OPEN EYES!?!? The guy that literally trashes EVERYTHING about this game and REFUSES to listen to REASON?!?! You're complaining about the HP bar being thin when there is a nice large NUMERICAL display? I.... Look, quit. Now. Just, quit. Just go back to FFXI, quit here, support FFXI. Expectations are one thing but your entire perspective is out of whack here.
Did you even PLAY games in 1995? Did you know that those games had little to NO UI customization? That you were lucky if you could tell wtf was going on without a manual? Like, really... this... I mean.. Just... SHTAAAAP.
