Is FF the best MMO out right now?

#1 Edited by Celtic_34 (1209 posts) -

With elder scrolls an apparent flop is it FF a realm reborn? Wow went downhill after vanilla imo and blizzard with all their money grubbing ways. FF is free better graphics and more up to date? Seems like elder scrolls is going to have to go back to the drawing board.

ARe people really that into mmo's these days where blizzard can even succeed with titan and as many people paying for it as they did with Wow? Seems like they just hit right at that time and people were suckers.

What do u mean ff is free? I am playing it now on ps4. I still like wow more, I am more used to it and comfortable with it. I am giving ff a chance.

It has gotten good reviews is why I ask. Also have been watching youtube stuff and it looks good. I used to like mmo's when they were more fun. the original diablo and wow were two of my favorite games. But they really turned me off with their bs. Not so much petty stuff just i saw blizzards attitude and what aholes they can be. Seems like FF is at least trying to give fans what they want.

i'm assuming it's free and not subscription based. just pay for teh game and that's it. I haven't played it. Just thinking of giving it a try.

There is a monthly fee........ Play Guild Wars 2 if you don't want to pay every month.

I can't compare, as I only play FFXIV. It's leaps and bounds better than 1.0, but that's all I can say.

I am still getting used to controls in FF. Oh and finding where to go. I have a lot of trouble with that. In wow I always knew where to go or find out where easily. Maybe that's from years of playing it lol

Currently, I have to say yes.

World of Warcraft is still the "best" MMO out there if we're going to talk objectively. Easily the most content and most polish.

Final Fantasty 14 is a decent MMO now. Last I played it the game was a bit content thin. That was several major patches ago. I may fire it up again and play it some more.

Couldn't say as I hardly play any MMOs, but FFXIV is the only one to hook me. In fact, it's hooked me more than many other games have recently.

Looking forward to getting into it tomorrow.

WOW is still MMO king.

WoW, Guild Wars 2, and even Elder Scrolls Online is better than that even.

Still good though. :)

No. Tried a bit recently, it's certainly a colossal step up compared to the initial release, but still, it's hardly the best MMO. GW2 and WoW have it beat, and maybe ToR/Planetide 2 since they have very solid F2P payment models.

I hated GW2 because having classes felt pointless.

At least with FF14 there is the holy trinity where you feel needed.

GW2 just felt a lot more casual and easy going.

This, plus that GCD is a killer (thank you consoles) it's the main thing that stopped me playing the game (lack of content being the other).

Even though i don't play it anymore the fluidity and polish WoW has is unmatched in the MMO genre.

Agree and agree. FFXIV is going to feel light on content until it gets it first expansion, I'd imagine. There's stuff to keep you busy, but a lot of redoing the same fights over and over at this point, even if it's with an increased difficulty level. Still, it's a strong MMO with a bright future. I wouldn't be surprised to hear something about an expansion at E3, now that they've got their platform launches done.

Yes it is, in fact. It's the greatest MMO to ever be created

Yep. DC Universe is close, but FFRR is the best.
