Oh-ho, but FFXI is actually a pretty fulfilling MMO in some respects (at the end of the day, it is an MMO). Whether you like XII or XIII is up to the individual, and XIV is still not worth the undisclosed sum of money with which I have funded it beyond a disappointingly short exposure of eye candy.
Despite having played all these but XIII (as well as playing X-2) and even enjoying all of them (except XIV), I stubbornly maintain my “the series ended with X” point of view. The gameplay is just not the same anymore. Well, except XIII. What the crap is with all these excep[/pointlessdiscourse]
