If you don't play it for the story, it's really good

Final fantasy xiv is a really good mmo. Its got a chunk of things I would like in the game, such as a good pvp system, faster gcd and maybe just more to do. However what it does do such as dungeons and raids are really really good. Its class system is amazing and something every mmo should take note of (for the love of god wow please let me switch classes instead of making an alt) . its also got gunswords which is a huge plus

dude i found an in game bar that sells hookers and weed. 10/10

Have played this game since 1.0. I really enjoy this game, it has it's ups and downs, and has changed so much over time (as most MMOs do) so I will give a breakdown as I see it now (patch 6.2) with my /playtime being "Total Play Time: 176 days, 10 hours, 6 minutes"
I will review this in the style of GamePro magazine, because why not:
Graphics: 4.5/5 - this game still holds up in 2022
Sound: 5/5 - some of my favorite video game music is from this game, and yes I have blasted the soundtrack while driving
Control: 4.5/5 - I have been playing so long I don't even remember if it was hard to control at first, but I do know it feels better than WoW does, and has controller support.
FunFactor: 4/5 - I go though periods of really enjoying the time I spend in this game to neglecting playing for days or sometimes weeks. But I always come back... always. Also one of the best stories in any game I've played.

Was writing a giant review but decided this would be better for a YouTube video, but tl;dr the game is good, has a wonderful world and gorgeous environments, not to mention is easier to get into than most MMOs, but the base 2.0 ARR story is bland and the pacing is off. Still recommended as it is something truly special

i got this game when i didnt have a lot of games on my ps5 and it had me addicted to it for a good while
really fun to play but its a lot better with friends but i dont have friends that play this game
