    Dancing Chocobo Have you played one of the FF MMOs?

    Some people love these, but others just kind of skip over them, preferring the single player experience. Where do you stand?

    I've tried both but was bored pretty quickly. Way too grindy.

    All goblin rituals serve a dual purpose as fertility rites, even the destructive ones. Especially the destructive ones.

    I've played both. Their story modes justify the asking price, I think, but FFXI is (was?) quite the grind so it's not for everyone.

    I have FFXIV but because of cost and interest I haven't played in a while. Don't get me wrong, I really enjoy it, but I get in the mood for certain games and it wasn't worth paying a monthly fee to just not touch it. I do plan to go back to it eventually

    I've tried both, and "meh". I might pick up 14 again if Pumpkin gets interested in it at some point.

    MMOs don't seem to be all that enjoyable for me. 14 was probably the most entertaining though. If I play again, I'll try to get more involved in the community, that might make it better.

    My FFXIV experience was weird; I found it really REALLY fun for about one week. Like, for that week, it was all I played. Then one day I logged in and was like "meh". Since then I haven't really felt it so I haven't played. Oh well.

    I haven't played any MMOs. I suppose I'd enjoy playing them with friends, like with FFXIV with the Fat Chocobos. However, I don't really have time, or a great PC, to really play them properly or in earnest. They are a massive commitment, and some people rely on you to be active participants.

    And the grinding. Ugh.

    I've played both but college means it's hard to find the time and the money to keep it up.

    Exactement.

    Plus, the subscription fees which MMOs can require are incredibly off-putting.

    I have played both. I played FFXIV before I played FFXI which was a terrible idea since FFXI is less newbie friendly. Both Matt and I struggled to get any idea what we had to do. It was suggested in this very forum that we follow a newbie guide to help us through, however... it just didn't grab us at all. FFXIV has obvious direction and we didn't have to follow a guide to get us through the opening section of the game, so uh that ended up sticking.

    re sub fees - FFXIV is £10 for the base game and then £9 per month afterwards, which isn't really all that bad, everything considered.
