I am not familiar with MMO's, so do people still play this now that XIV is out? Is it even worth buying at this point?

Lots of people still play this game, including me. There are still 600-2000 people online across 17 servers at any time. It even gets decent new content every single month! It has always been a decent game, but recently it has taken a new direction which has been very well received by the community - which, trust me - are a tough crowd to please!

It most definitely is worth buying if immersing yourself in a massive online fantasy world interests you. The ultimate collection is very cheap and comes with a 30 day free trial. The only problem that a lot of new players find with FFXI is that it lacks in-game guidance compared with that of modern MMOs.
