Final Fantasy 14 is an MMORPG that i’ve recently fallen in love with. I’ve played a lot of MMORPG’s in the past but i’ve never quite felt as attached as I do with this game. For those of you who may not be familiar with mmo’s, these are games that take place in huge open worlds filled with thousands of online players. You choose a job or class and you set sail to explore the world that Square Enix created.
I know that when it comes to MMO’s a lot of people think of World of Warcraft because of how popular it is, but I think many people don’t realize how amazing FFXIV is. The interface and layout are incredibly well done, the game is incredibly well polished, the world is beautiful, and lastly it has that nostalgic Final Fantasy feel.
Within the game you can join up with other players to tackle dungeons which consist of four players or you can group up with 30 players to do a raid. A lot of the missions within the game require skill, strategy, and coordination to succeed which makes the game incredibly fun. You’re forced to interact with people as you explore and who knows you may even make new friends. Personally, i joined a guild or free company where we can all help and learn from each other.
I know that a lot of people reading this don’t know the Final Fantasy franchise but let me tell you that it is wickedly popular all over the world. Square Enix’s first Final Fantasy game was created back in 1987 and recently have announced that their new game, Final Fantasy 15, will be released this year after 3 years of production. A lot of the Final Fantasy games have reoccurring characters or monsters like Cid, Shiva and Ifrit to name a few that make us fanboys squeal and FFXIV is no different. We as players get to team up and fight these monsters head on in epic battles where one mistake from one player means certain death for all players in the instance.
Overall, this game is amazing and deserves an incredible amount of success. I’ve even decided to not be stingy and pay the subscription price every month to play this game which colored me surprised.
