thats 100% how i feel about xiv. i LIKE it (hence the reason i play it. i wouldnt play somthing i didnt like) but ffxi is better. when i play a new game in a series i expect it to be just as good or better than the last. not slightly worse but still enjoyable. whch is the case with ffxiv. as or the other guy ffxi in the us came out two years after japan.. not a few months. getit right
You are not the only one who thinks that a MMO that only has launch content should be equal or greater to a game that has 10+ years of patches and 4 full size expansions.
I have an idea! Let's play the Pepsi Challenge.
First you get to play the launch version of FFXI for 100 hours.
Then you get to play the launch version of FFXIV:ARR for 100 hours.
Then you have to pick one, and never play the other one again. Ok, ready?! GO!
Hahahaha, it's a trick question! FFXI is for people who like FFXI, and FFXIV is for people who like FFXIV.
You don't have to choose at all, you can play BOTH!
(But for real, Coke is better.)
