I tell you about the awe-inspiring and terrifying power of connectedness to others because someone told me a tale that remindedly deeply of how the bonds that tie us together can also be the very one that break us entirely. This is the tale of a young woman named Edda, her adventuring band, and the severed head she carried in a box after our first fateful meeting.

This is by far the best mmo out. FF XIV ARR is #1.

I have recently come back after stopping a few months after launch. Indeed it IS one of the best MMO's ever, and I am having a great time. There is so much to do, and the way they keep adding content is fantastic. I can't wait to see where they go with this game.

I love it how Edda laughs and cries during the encounter in the dungeon, to add to the atmosphere of the place.. and in the end of Tam Tara HM your character doesnt do the usual /joy /cheer victory pose, but instead just closes his/her eyes and looks downward with a sad expression with no music, just nothing but silence.. forever carving Edda's and Avere's journey to my memory as one of the creepiest/saddest (in a good way) dungeons i have done in ages.

Poor Edda and Avere, may you find some manner of peace in the Void...

I felt sorry for their party when I first overheard their exchange after the failed dungeon run. It was always in the back of my mind what came of the remaining members as I continued on my journey. So imagine my surprise when there was a quest introduced to continue to learn their fates. It's like FFXIV is not just tacking on more and more quest, but actually taking what they already have and expanding on a already deep npc story/lore that you can explore as you progress.

This is probably one of the only bigger MMO's that I haven't tried. I've been on the fence because I hear nothing but good things about it but I've never liked Final Fantasy or anime. But if the game itself is good enough, I might be able to move past the art direction.

Great game no doubt but Wildstar is a better game IMO, ARR has a better story but raids, PvP and combat are better in Wildstar

Depends on your taste.

Not into PvP so can't comment on that but i prefer ARR's slower combat and dungeons over Wildstars.

I like Wildstar and Final Fantasy both, but in honest I am mor ein love with FF. Its a game that has immersion and depth to it which feels nice and gets me invested into it no matter what I do. Wildstar, is more a consumption based product. Lots of attractions to see, lots of things executed very well but not a lot of "soul" in it. 

Which, I suppose is iconic considering one game is fantasy and the game without soul is science fiction. In all, I earn an income where I play both. I also play TSW as well :)

Coming to this site makes me question if I've even played either of these games previously full well knowing I have.  A month of FFXIV was enough to make me realize it was completely soulless with no world to speak of.  And Wildstar... there is nothing I can stand about that, combat, graphics, content etc...

 

Beginning to wonder if a company will ever make something unique or at the very least bring back legitimate MMO values...

I already did the quest and dungeon a few times, but shouldn't this article be marked with a "spoiler" tag in the title in order to not ruin the story for others?

Logic, reason and fact do not supersede human nature. Ignorance reigns without justice.

While I can understand or even sympathize with some people's initial impressions of most things... There were also many people who played it very briefly, or at the start that genuinely believe that MMOs have nothing further to offer than the first few levels of play or that they don't improve dramatically over time.  FFXIV is one of the only games in recent memory that has been so popular that it has increased the amount of servers it needed almost eight months after release.  In addition to that, the tremendous amounts of content and system updates / upgrades and new systems implemented into the game with each patch update (even the .1 ones) has been a breath of fresh air overall.

 

There is genuinely too much to do in this game and I find myself falling behind repeatedly, with only being able to do a third of what I planned, if that, for the day.  This game has a lot of soul just by virtue of it's development team and how they are advancing the game in addition to implementing incredibly content and updates that most other games won't even consider for a big expansion (in their patches, no less).

 

Improving on nearly every aspect -- and adding more -- is a core thing that people have come to expect from their updates.  They even add new ways to sit into chairs, emotes (you can set it so that if your character is idle for a few seconds or whatever time you want, they change positions, making it really immersive), dozens and dozens of side quests, main story advancements, side systems, boss fights, raid turns, character improvements, comedy, improvements on all previous aspects or implementations (or additions), etc.  All while not trying to nickle and dime you to death, and being fair about most aspects of the game (Everyone got a free appearance change, and if you buy one from the store for $10, every character on the account gets another one, instead of just one).  There is also very little hand holding once you delve deeply into the game, as most things have to be figured out by the community and those people willing to share said information (which there are a lot of due to reddit).

 

TDLR; when the game first came out, I didn't think it was worth a monthly sub.  With the latest patch, I believe there is an abundance of reasons to sub and recommend it to most of my friends; they have shown a lot to be admired as a dev team and that they're taking the game in many great directions.

 

When faced with strife or discontent, the true nature of a man is brought forth. It is then when we see the character of the individual. It is then we are able to tell if he is mature enough to grin and bare it, or subject his fellow man to his complaints and woes.

...Are people seriously saying this game has depth?

 

I hope you're speaking exclusively about story here.

If I had to guess he's likely someone who hasn't played an MMO in years and thinks all modern mmos are too easy because they don't make you grind mindlessly for months to hit level cap.  Hit or miss?
