If you care then you should be waiting patiently for type-0 and Versus.
It's been nearly 7 years. I've been patient enough. In the meantime, SE thinks they can make up for it with these half-assed sequels and that wonderful mainline MMO that has a 49% on Metacritic.
Gotta love SE.
14: You gotta be kidding me. Metacritic means nothing. Give me other info about what we already know. Also we don't even know how realm reborn will turn out just yet.
Apparently a good 2 millions people can enjoy the sequel So your point is invalidated.
Metacritic is very important. It has affected the pay of developers in the past and it is becoming increasingly important as time goes on.
And lol... what? Even the CEO admitted that XIV was a failure.
And it's 2 million SHIPPED copies (compared that to the nearly 7 million sold copies of XIII), and just because someone bought a game, it does not mean that they enjoyed it. I bought a copy of XIII-2 and I hated it.
