It's pretty hard to do that when it comes to talking about video games. I'm not going to make any more points about WoW and FFXI specifically. But I do feel the need to defend my post.
I wasn't making commentary about FFXI; it was about WoW. I didn't mention FFXI in my post
JasonR said "Spend a lot of time to progress? It's the easiest MMO I've ever played to level up in. You can max out a character in a month, versus a game like FFXI where that takes a few months if not a year."
"To level up in" and "max out" are the 2 things I picked out from his argument. I just wanted to make the point that progression doesn't stop after you level to 60 or 70.
And I love the fact that it's not a time sink
I agree with this so far. I don't have a lot of time to play a computer game. What takes an average gamer 2 months to do, would take me six. So I want a game that I can level a character in quickly, so that I can enjoy the multiplayer and cooperative aspects of the game with my guild friends. The levelling is just a necessary evil. If I could just buy a level 60 character, I would.
I want to do endgame raids and instances on the weekends with my friends. That's all I want. I don't think I would have the patience with FFXI.
However, the nice quick pace to the levelling does keep it fresh and enjoyable. And the game looks and plays very well, and I like the social aspect of it.
I'm level 31 priest now, and I'll probably make a rogue character for my guild. (We have no high level priests or rogues).
