Can one play this game alone?

I have never gotten it an MMORPG because I'm not interested in playing with other players. I prefer the strictly console RPGs. Can FF XIV be played alone or is joining a group a requirement.

Most content can be completed by yourself but you will have to group with others to do dungeons and progress through the story.

You will have to play with other people to get through dungeons and trials. You can get away with not talking to anyone though. At least through the main story quests.

There's no single player mode if that's what you're hoping for.

Are there any decent MMORPS's with a single player mode?

This game is very solo friendly until late end game content. Any of the group dungeons you need for the story have a duty finder that will match you up with a proper party and get the dungeon under way. Communication is usually at a minimum in these. I'm lucky just to exchange pleasantries or maybe if someone is new someone else will explain a boss mechanic. So you will have to party up for the dungeons but it is a very automated process and most players have the dungeons on auto pilot so it's easy to play along with them even as a loner.

I play alone all the time. Eventually you'll start pugging, but other than that...

Kinda sad too because it's like, I'd play with people if I knew people who played the game, but I don't.

ff12 isn't multiplayer nor is it online so therefore its not an MMORPG
