Single player games are good and all, and Steam is great too, but I guess in the end I like grinding in MMOs.. ugh, I blame all the MMOs I played. I couldn't stop myself, and got the FFXI Ultimate Collection on Steam recently (for 5 bucks, woot!) .. and I bought the Guild Wars Trilogy along with Eye of the North (hence my previous post asking about it).

Now, why would I buy FFXI and GW when FFXIV and GW2 are coming out? I couldn't wait hehe. And.. I'll add some back story too.

Before I started playing MMOs seriously, I played RO (on pvt servers cough) on and off.. wasn't anything serious, just an hour a week or so. At the time, GW was my #1 game to buy, cept back then I couldn't buy it.. parents eh? Fast forward nearly a decade later and college (graduated woot), I now have time on my hands ( I blame the economy... cough.. uh) I want to play these games.

That said, I'm also highly receptive to reviews and word of mouth. Why? Because my guildie from a f2p recommended EvE back in 2008, and I joined. Best decision in my gaming career, if you can call it that. Now on Aion (terrible terrible game), my legion mates talked about their time on FFXI fondly.. and others on the server sometimes (but rarely) mention GW for its pvp. Hearing that, I want to go and try those games.

I think I'm going to play FFXI first since it comes with the 30 days, but I doubt I'll subscribe to it... since FFXIV is already on my pre-ordered...and I have 2 EVE accounts to pay for. That said, it should prep me for FFXIV since it seems everyone on the forums are saying how similar the two are.

As a side note, I haven't done any in-depth reading on FFXIV, because most are speculations and ..whining(?) posts (about a game that hasn't even come out, laughable). So FFXI is going to be my FFXIV primer.

Moogles, chocobos, and tonberries here I come.

Another reason to play GW prior to GW2 release is for the achievements in GW that will carry over in to GW2 Hall of Monuments.

It's a shame for you though that nothing carries over from FFXI to FFXIV

Guild wars achievements for hall of monument someone told me takes along time to achieve, you have to play alot to get this goal accomplished.

And it will not give you advantage if im correct.

So seems no need to play GW for that hehe.

Or wanne spent alot time playing GW in next 6 months?

I didn't even know about achievements in GW1. One of the things that originally drew me to GW was its no subscription model. I'll just take my time and play the game, if I get an achievement, good. If not, I'll get it later.

No need to rush, I'll just take my time (doubt I'll have free time in six months though, job possibly =)  Thanks for the heads up.
