I love the game. I love the difficulty, i love the steep learning curve, and most of all i love the accomplishment i get from the former two points. I actually feel like im doing something, which is contradictory to what a lot of others are feeling. I tried WoW... and hated it. If i wanted to press a button and "BOOM" synth complete, id have never started this game, I'd have stayed with WoW. If I wanted to PL to max level in 2 weeks, I'd have stayed with WoW. Its the reason i liked XI so much, its not easy to be a badass.
There is a great comment for the log where someone says: "The real question to ask yourself when considering FFXIV is, "Does this game appeal to me?". Because, from an objective point of view, this game doesn't do a lot wrong... So many people are quick to say this game is horrible because it does something they don't like, but that's really not the case. It does a lot of different things and it does them well. The question is, will you enjoy what it does?"
I guess im kinda midnight ranting, but I hope it stays true, somethings need tweaking, but god i hope it stays true.
