Battle of the MMO’s

A friend of mine is trying to get me to play Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. He’s been playing it for a while now, and he’s enjoying it a lot. The thing is, his playstyle differs a lot from mine, and his life situation is just completely opposite of mine. He has loads of time to play the sh*t out of games. He also streams a lot of his game on Twitch, so I’ve seen plenty FFXIV has to offer.

I’m still not convinced to be honest. FF XIV seems like a pretty game, the graphics and all that jazz. But it is a weird kind of game, and I’m not sure what to think of it. Seems like a serious grind to me.

I’ve been considering buying The Elder Scrolls Online, seeing how I liked Daggerfall, Morrowind and Skyrim. Playing ESO casually seems like a good idea, but then I watched Angry Joe’s review of the game, and it’s not a very good review. I challenge you to watch the review.

  1. Heya šŸ™‚
    We have watched Angry Joe’s review many many times, it’s very funny. It also made us delay buying the game, it was only when we really needed a distraction that we ended up buying it.
    His review is, as it stands now, inaccurate. The gameplay is actually wonderful – smooth, great graphics, bugs are few and far between.
    K loved Morrowind – he said to tell you that ESO is basically Morrowind as it should have been. More detail, more characters – and the game is better than Skyrim.
    We have only played as the Ebonheart Pact so far (which is based in the Morrowind area) but the glimpses we’ve seen of the Daggerfall and Dominion areas look amazing as well.
    I played Oblivion and Skyrim a fair bit, and ESO is just as awesome as they were, if not better (imo šŸ™‚ )
