I'll be honest - FFXIV is currently lacking in the end game department as it is a new game and only been out two months, but there IS endgame. Content patches and expansions are planned though. GW2, on the other hand, has no planned expansions and the content that periodically comes out just isn't up to par with progressive raiding, imo. GW2 still has no progressive end game after over a year. The two games are similar actually in the leveling/storyline department. PVP is currently not in FFXIV though it is planned. PVP in GW2 is only fun in WvW, also my opinion. I probably won't do pvp in FFXIV, so you'll have to come back once it's released.

GW2 now, then try FF:ARR in about 4-6 mo after some content patches.


GW2 and TSW are always good to have on your hard drive. I personally love GW2, but even objectively, you're going to be hard pressed to find a better value and content creation rate (I like most of the content that comes out, others don't).


FF:ARR seems great, but you'd also be paying monthly during periods where there AREN'T any content updates, which is why I would stick to GW2 for the first couple of months.


Regardless of what you choose, make sure you find a guild, and make your own fun.

Both are really fun & good games worth the price of the box but dont expect to be around any longer than a month or 2 at best with either .the shiny new game feel wears off very fast. Im going to say if you are more of a traditionalist when it comes to MMO's ie...Grinding and defined roles (dps-tank-healer) go with FF ARR . If you enjoy more of a laid back expirience with a much MUCH larger open world and no defined class roles than go with Guild wars2

It just so happens that they are having a sale for GW2 today for $29.99 USD.  $30 for the game and indefinite play time plus content updates every two weeks is not to shabby.  Though if you like trinity, quest hubs, raiding, and gear grind then GW2 is not your game.

Actually I really cant stick up for ether one. If I had a gun to my head and had to pick one I would go with GW2.


FF14 is VERY VERY week in content......Normally I would say the hardcore players play too much and rush to end game and its them and not the game. But YOU BETTER LIKE CRAFTING, crafting is the filler of content.....Infact I've never played any mmo where crafting had to be done until I played FF14 except Darkfall.

The game was rushed out the door, if you do manage to not craft, You will have to do hundreds of Fiats ( dynamic events ). You must do your story line your first time around or you will not unlock your mount, Airship for travel, and dungeons. Players will tell you the story line is great....I say bull crap...Your story line will have you running from Continent to Continent to turn in the most simplest of things.

I think my breaking point was when I got this quest to find three boxes. I opened my map to find it with the built in quest tracker and could not find it. I like what, where is it ? is this a bug ?.......Well, the three boxes were at my feet in front of the quest giver. Yes, right in front of me. All I had to do is except the quest, hit the three boxes and turn it in....How shallow it that !!!!


Now that I think about it......GW2 is a better choice !!!!!!

The only difference between GW2 and all of the F2P games out there is that you have to buy GW2. Just save your money and play LotRO or Aion if you aren't concerned with quality. Other than that I'd go with FFXIV: ARR simply because it has a future.

And the fact that the quality of the game is a billion times higher. GW2 is one of the few games that can rival WoW in terms of pure quality of gameplay. The smoothness of the combat, movement etc. I have a ton of issues with GW2 but it definitely is a step above the likes of LotRO, AION, Rift etc in quality.

Both are good in their own right. I have had fun with both. It took me a year to finally get burned out on GW2. Now I am having a lot of fun with FFARR.

For dungeons and questing I would suggest FFARR. I prefer the holy trinity system for dungeons. More organized imo

For PvP GW2 for sure. I still think GW2 has had the best PvP out of any mmo.

I would advise you to play GW2:


+ big world - exploring is fun and part of the gameplay

+open mini dungeons with puzzles and traps

+open world mobs that force grouping

+ combat is very dynamic and the best of all MMOs imo

+ WvWvW is fantastic - stil one of the best things you can do in any MMO currently

+ crafting is very comfortable

+ freedom of choice - just do what you want to

+ dynamic quests can be a great experience (although some are boring)

+ a lot of little ideas that you have think of in other MMOs millions of times ("why don't they just...?")

+ high quality and very good graphics

+ individualizing your character is fun

+ no trinity solves a lot of problems

+ no gear progression

+the B2P model with store for additional stuff that you don't need is very fair


- no gear progression turns of many "classical" MMO-players

- no trinity turns of many "classical" MMO-players

- no raiding as endgame and no clear endgame treadmill gameplay

- the solo-quest-line is the same for all races after level 30

- this game needs an expansion (but this is not your problem, if you start now)

-no Mounts

-crafting is very mainstream "wowish" and nothing compared to games like SWG or Vaguard

As someone who plays GW2, that review above is extremely optimistic. WvWvW is a big nasty zerg fest. I do like the combat but it won't be for everyone. The game completely lacks challenge and goes out of its way to make sure you feel like you are not progressing. Probably the game I've played where I feel like what I do matters the least of any game. "Raid mobs" scale according to numbers of players and are set at a difficulty that is easy to beat, skills are set up so it is hard for any player to stand out, WvWvW is setup to be extremely zerg friendly and very temporary etc.

Some people like that mind you, others find it leads to a very unsatisfying long term experience.

GW2 is sort of a beer and pretzels MMORPG. Something you play because you can turn your brain off and not really try and still be as successful as the next guy.
