I know that this game has been out for years now and most of you have either moved on to other MMORPGs. The main reason for me jumping back down the costly path of paying a premium price just to play a game online is the Final Fantasy Universe. If you’ve ever played Final Fantasy, you know what I’m talking about. The visuals actually stand up quite well even in today’s HD market.
For basically twenty bucks you will now get every expansion and add-on for Final Fantasy 11 Online. I’ve played many MMOs in my lifetime from free to premium games, but none of them “NONE” really pull me into the games world like FF11 does.
From the lush environments, some of the best enemies ever created in a game and the size and scope of the landscape. FF11 really makes me feel like I’ve stepped into another world. The game is still not for everyone, do to it’s slow progression and long long long quests. This is why I love it and keep going back and renewing my account. This time around I’m not going to renew my lvl 30 Red Mage, but I’m going to start fresh at lvl 1. I’m not sure what class or race I’m going to go for.
I don’t want to turn this into a review but more of a reason why I like this now classic game. Some folks in my inner circle don’t agree with me and really hate paying for games after the actual game purchase, but that’s what the free to play MMOs are for. What really surprises me is that after so many years of this game being out, the community and support for this game is still very vibrant and lively. You will always find cool people on the servers that will be more than happy to offer you some support and direction. Now to hit the store and get my copy.
