Hey everyone. I am an avid FF fan. I played FFXI years ago and was borderline addicted to it. Never tried the first edition of FF14 and by the looks of the reviews, its a good thing I didnt.
Anyways, I plan to go to gamestop at 11am tomorrow and play this game the entire day. Does that sound like a good idea?
The reason I ask are due to three concerns.
1. I am worried that I will have to dedicate my life to this game. There will be times when I wont be able to get on for a couple of days. Some days I will only play for a couple hours. Then some, I could play for 12 hours. Is this a game that I can play casually as well as hardcore?
2. Will Square's servers be able to handle all of us Americans on the lack of servers that they have provided us? Should I wait a few days before buying to see how things go?
3. Most importantly, to the beta players, IS IT FUN? Is it similar to FFXI? I loved that game. Will it have different and entertaining things to do, or will it be really repetitive like 13-2 is starting to feel. Will it have the charm of most Final Fantasy games, or is this another Square Enix disaster. Keep in mind I loved FF13, but 13-2 not so much. Never played 12. Loved FFX but that was Square, X-2 looked so lame that I never even tried it, which was Enix. FF15 looks great though, so I can't really judge.
I love whoever replies to help me. I have a $70 credit at gamestop and I plan on utilizing it on a great game because I am broke, so its either this or GTA V. Then I will get FFX remake later this year and the new games in 2014.
