They are ruining things for sure but it is worse that that.  Game has VO they complain about that.  If it doesn't have VO they complain about that.  It is like children trying to push their parents limits because they feel powerless.  That's how I see many of the complaining players in forums, as powerless children crying to get their way.

(red) The they you're referring to is a bunch of different individuals with different preferences, it's not the same people. As for the rest of your post (yellow), it's clear who not to try and have a conversation with.

Voice acting is extremely expensive and does very little for an MMO. Most people skipped SWTOR's cutscenes after a few levels, the same would be true here. I'd much rather they invest that money elsewhere.

Nice try, I have seen people say one thing and do another.  YOu have a different experience that's fine but I have another.  You can't accept it fine.

 Due to SW opening my eyes to more of the Role Playing side, I really enjoyed that, so now I try and listen and understand the story, but when text reels on forever, with strange words, and funny grammar, it just ends up being skipped.

Oh, strange words...meaning words you don't know....but your lack of vocabulary is the devs fault....got it.

 

This is quite normal in Japanese to English translations, as our languages are completely different. Akira was a good transition, because those doing it understood these fundamental differences.  So yes these types of abnormal phrases are the fault of the devs.

Wrong again.  The translations are just fine.  This guy simply doesn't know the words or the accent expression in the text.  Its a trait most people who actually READ have.  And it's an extra layer of depth and personality for each character, or the city they're from, etc.

Just because it looks funny to you doesn't mean it's wrong.

Voice overs are over rated, and at best are just fluff.

Upset because they aren't part of a game?  That's just silly.

There ARE quite a few voice overs in the game already, and they ARE adding more, yet I really couldn't care less, I've been reading books since I was four, and they've taken me places no movie or TV show ever could, the written word is a powerful medium, use your imagination.

I think his point is that the community at large has diametrically opposed standards.

I also think it's true that the same personality types are the ones most likely to complain, be it for or against VO.  So, to say 'they' in this context is actually fairly accurate.  lol XD

That may be the case, maybe I jumped the gun. However it wouldn't be the first time I've seen the two sides lumped together in a manner where they're seen as one contradictory voice. Which would be like saying that about Liberals and Conservatives.:D

OMG I'm so happy to see this lol! I was just complaining to a good friend of mine yesterday about this. I know I'm an old-er gamer but this is really what it's come down to and I can't take it anymore. I've been in such a gaming rutt because everything shiney and new that comes out, I get my hopes up, only to find out it's some gamepad, action combat borefest. FFXIV may be having some issues right now with errors and log-ins but I have finally found a new MMO home and I couldn't be happier.

Please remember everyone that this kind if threads happen at the beginning of each beta phase, the people who does not like the game will log off after reaching level 5 or 10 And start threads bashing it in the forum.
After beta phase ends, most people who are enjoying the game are just done playing it and did Not have time to visit the forums. Only then, you will start seeing much more positive feedback then negative.

In the many polls over this game on many sites, most of the testers had positive feedback

It scares me that there are people that say they don't like to read and reading is no fun, so they want someone else to read for them.

Is it lack of imagination, or the need to have 100% action in a role playing game? Or becoming more widespread analphabetism?

Voice acting shouldn't be ever mandatory in game industry, there should always be a choice. You might as well require audio to every book you buy. Don't try to make the world more crazy than it already is.

They've had to redo all the storytelling, graphical engine and everything. I don't think that they could afford to make this game fully voiced. Like Final Fantasy XIII, XIII-2, XIII-3, and XV.

The new generation of gamer has only known Final Fantasy 12, 13 and 14. Not exactly the greatest of the series, so I have to question if this is such a big IP as many of us believe. It's probably only large in the minds of Japanese and Final Fantasy fans such as me who have played them since back at Final Fantasy 6.

When's the last time you heard someone praise a game just because it had voice overs? The whole thread is basically just grasping at anything possible to complain about. Are well done voice overs a nice addition? Sure. But they're not going to turn a bad game into a good game, and lack of them wont turn a good game into a bad one.

Agreed. It's nice for a single player RPG, but even then it's not necessary.

Apart from what I've already said, about strange words, and I mean place names and peoples names etc, not, I can't read English or their turns of phrases, even though, at times, thats a little strange too, but I deal with that from a game thats translated.

 

My main point that i'd like to say though, is in a book, as everyone keeps referencing, has emotions, has little discriptions of why the person is feeling the way tey do, and portrays thats to the reader. An MMO can't with just text, it would be alright if at least the NPCs were animated to convey emotion, but again they aren't, so the reader of the script has to interpret the whole thing instead. Voice overs are apart of the whole Final Fantasy experience in the single player rpgs, and at the end of the day, thats where the MMO came from. So I don't understand people saying it shouldn't be apart of the MMO experience, would Skyrim, Mass Effect, even Final Fantasy be as popular and as good as single player RPGs without the voice overs?

Final Fantasy was extremely popular before they started using voiceovers. In fact I think more FF games (both the main series and spin-offs like FF Tactics, etc) have had no voiceovers than have had them in FF games. IIRC they didnt even start using them until FF8, and then just for cutscenes. Even the newer ones (10+) dont use VOs for much outside of cutscenes and battle.
