    Was not sure about this game, but man is it addicting!

    I personally have never cared for these MMO type games. I also have not cared about Final Fantasy since the PS1 days.

    But this game has got me HOOKED!!! At first it was a tad overwhelming. There is just so much to learn! I decided to watch some tutorials on YouTube to help me understand the game more.

    After a few hours I was really understanding how to navigate the map better, and how find where my objectives were. The first hour was almost too much, and nearly made me want to quit playing. After I reached level 4 or 5, I became really addicted.

    I just love how I can play by myself. There are instances where I need help from others, but for the most part I am playing solo. I do like how these "Fates" appear out of nowhere. Everyone gangs up on the enemie(s) in an all out ass whooping.

    So far this game has certainly surpassed my expectations. I am still learning the game, and everyday the game gets a little easier for me. I can definitely see this game eating up a lot of my time.

    Here is my sexy character.

    I'm on the fence, mu friend wants me to pick this up but I haven't played FF in years.

    How are the graphics? Is it actually fun to play? I've seen videos but they never do it justice.

    Good to hear you are enjoying it. There was a time I may have been all over this game. But after playing WoW for nearly 7 years and leveling dozens of characters....I'm sooooo burnt out on leveling these days I have a hard time starting over in any game. Not to mention I'm still trying to clean out a backlog of titles from last gen because of the time I spent in WoW :P

    From what little I played of this, the gfx are great. I love the attack and spell animations. After playing SW:TOR however, I have a tough time not having a fully voiced over mmo.

    It is hilarious in fate parties and large fates. So many people killing enemies, even when non fate enemies stumble into the fate they have no chance. "Everything" gets killed.

    The graphics are $#@!ing insane on the PS4. There is a huge difference between PS3 version and PS4. I love this game and find it hard to play anything else. I started infamous second son and said $#@! it back to ff. I am 7/12 for my Atmas, which are a grind to say the least.

    $#@!ing berts was playing nonstop the entire day yesterday. I swear to god he was online from morning, till I went to bed lol.

    The graphics are pretty good for the size of this game. I do love those huge Fate battles when there are like 30 others beating the $#@! out of the enemy lol.

    This is a quality game no doubt.

    Besides quest, you got dungeons, Fates, crafting (most useless in this game), PvP.

    It is not bad to give the game a go for 15 bucks for a month. It gets quite boring after realizing there is no deep RPG element to this game though.

    Graphics: Great

    Combat: Good.

    RPG Element: Bad. No real option. You level up and you are given skills. Nothing you can do about it. No skill trees. You have attribute, but you just pool everything into one set you dont even think about it.

    Items have designated class. So variability is gone. You can't choose play style. Character chooses for you.

    Story: ehh. It itself isn't bad, but execution is bad. Cheesy lines. Cheesy characters. Terrible freaking interactions and cutscene moments. For example, i think they used /emote commands for laughing and etc for cut scenes and stuff.

    No voice, but even main story with some voiced portions are so bad it actually work against it.

    So I've never been a fan of FF or, for that matter, any jRPG - but I'm hooked on this game. It really is a crap load of fun! The first couple of hours were a complete mind boggling mess. But with some tweaks to the interface and reading a few guides it all clicks into place much more quickly. Still struggling occasionally to work out where my next mission is on the map (usually when it's in a different area I struggle to locate that area).

    All in all I would really recommend this game to anyone and I'm surprised it's not getting more publicity than it is on the PS4.

    I could not agree more with the OP. You took the words out my mouth. Love this game. Still trying to get my head around it, but my god this game is such a quality product. Other games makers could learn lots by following Square's example!

    Goddamnit, Lethal. You've convinced me to give the game another go - just added a 60 day timecard to my account and will be PS4'ing it up later.

    This is a solid game and what's cool is that Yoshi was talking about how FF differentiates itself from other MMOs and he said that the frequency of content is going to be one of the hallmarks for the game which is pretty cool. I'm already impressed with the content that 2.1 and 2.2 brought and then there were mid point updates which brought their own features and tweaks. There#s so much content already in the game and so much more coming with personal housing, chocobo training and the gold saucer (though that's been delayed a lil). if you're a FF fan the game is golden, even if you#re not it#s an awesome game with nice art, good visuals, great music and lots to do.

    Played for a few hours now and I won't lie, really warming to the game. Just hit level 15 so looking forward to the duty finder and dungeons etc. can definitely now see myself subscribing for a few months.

    Having recently played Elder Scrolls Online, Final Fantasy XIV beats it hands down.

    There's a whole lot of cool stuff looming too, including my personal endgame: individual player housing. Choco training might also be coming in 2.3 too. It's already huge and is only going to get bigger, better and deeper which is exciting. As one of SEs most relevant titles at the moment I think good things are set for quite a while.
