FF 14 beta

#1Mindwipe77Posted 8/18/2013 7:34:32 AM
How are you guys liking it? I think it's OK but kinda boring...i dont know i dont think it's as fun as DCUO but thats just my opinion. The FF 14 beta seems highly repetitive and the quests are bland. I know beta isn't showing the full game so maybe it gets better but it's just not as good as i thought it'd be atm...might cancel pre-order and stick to DCUO until elder scrolls online or EQ next

^ I agree. It doesn't do anything original. Its WoW with an FF skin and slightly slower pacing. Also a LOT of design choices I don't like (as it happens many of the same choices I dislike in WoW) but a few of its own.

not for me. I'm not hating and if people enjoy it, good for them. I'm simply not interested in 1-2 hours running around a town doing bland repetitive busywork (not even any combat). To me any RPG where that is by far the fastest way to level is poorly designed.

lolDCUO, i used to enjoy that game but got boring really fast, no wonder it went F2P, FF14 is way better than DCUO

DCUO and FF14 are both boring, but at least DCUO doesn't have gameplay that's 10 years out of date.

FFXIV will copy WoW the same way FFXI copied EQ1. It won't do anything new, it'll just refine an already existing formula.

While I am having fun with the game. I just can't see myself paying 15$ a mo (or however much the sub is), in order to play it. A lot of the time, I was just thinking of playing Guild Wars 2, as the game reminded me of it.

It doesn't?

Yes, FF14 was taken down by the game's creators for being an absolute insult to gaming.

They rebooted it with a much prettier look and new storyline.

But the gameplay is still White Knight Chronicles, only slower. Everyone is either fetch questing or grinding skills.

The actual gameplay is shockingly boring and stagnant. Like you will be surprised that this game was re-built and that they spent all that time and money and the result is WKC III
