I love video games, you guys. I played Toe Jam and Earl in the early 90’s and have been through World of Warcraft, Heroes of the Storm and about a bajillion other games since then. Deep into World of Warcraft, I didn’t play Final Fantasy when it was released. Matter of fact, I hadn’t played at all until about a month ago.
This game is as amazing as its history!
The original Final Fantasy XIV was released in September 2010 and it flopped. The President (at the time) of Square Enix announced that a new team would take over and attempt to fix the issues. They shut it down. Rereleased in late 2013, the subscriber base is still strong — over 14 million players subscribing to date — and yet another expansion to be released soon.
Screw-ups can be fixed. Do-overs are real. Final Fantasy XIV is proof of that. See you in Eorzea!
