      I wish more companies were willing to learn from their mistakes and improve rather than just throw their hands up and declare every flop an unsalvagable failure.

        Maintaining and updating XIV 1.0 while simultaneously developing a brand new build (ARR) to replace it is anything but safe. ARR as a game itself might be safe, but the expansions are peak FF.

          at least with 2’s dumb way of stat development you had to be pretty fucking retarded to fuck your parties shit up so bad that you need to be forced to grind

        Really? It was pretty successful on launch, was sick with hackers which they fixed, then it’s been downhill since. I won’t argue whether it’s still popular or not now, but it was a good game from the start (that’s only been getting worse since then imo.)
        But I haven’t played it in years now.

          This is also true. Commercially, it actually did pretty well even though the game was completely unplayable dogshit. The metacritic score for it was way too high for how it played. If that sort of game wasn’t made from Square-Enix, it would be 10 at best. The JRPG weeb faggots carried to to be a commercial success at launch, but even this would not prop up the game long term, which is why they had to remake it.

      This is one of the best turning points for the entire videogame industry. In an era where the business world is obsessed with the fantasy of chaining a skeleton crew of diversity hires to their desks for peanuts to make the company a bajillion bucks (fueled by decades of communist babble about how customers will buy whatever they’re told to buy and workers are only separated by prejudices), FFXIV showed in a very direct sense that the switch from sparse, low quality content to high quality content pays dividends. The fantasy of the modern world is just that: a fantasy.

        13 wouldn’t have been remembered as anything other than a mediocre FF game if FF14 hadn’t nearly bankrupted Square Enix and forced them to endlessly milk FF13 and indirectly spawn FF15.

        FFXIII was actually fairly well received. Despite how much people love to shit on it critical reception wasn’t that bad and it sold extremely well. No matter how bad you think it is as a game, it was polished and everything worked as it should.

        FFXIV was a fucking train wreck of epic proportions. It was barley playable because the gameplay and interface were broken beyond belief, it was glaringly clear the game was unfinished to the point that it felt like a pre-alpha build, and they were charging people a monthly fee to play it. It was so bad it got scores as low as 4/10 from multiple critics. It was such a monumental failure that it never even made it to any consoles before Square Enix killed it.

        FFXIII may have damaged FF in the sense that FF wasn’t FF anymore. But FFXIV damaged the brand in an objective sense, as in you could no longer pick up a FF game and not have to worry about a broken product with a lack of polish.

      If we’re going by that metric, remember how Fortnite launched in early 2017 with no battle royale mode and literally nobody gave a shit about it? It was dead in the water. They they cobbled a BR mode in like 8 weeks, rode out the shitstorm over cloning PUBG and it became worth billions

      How much of a comeback is it though? It’s not like they fixed the game, they literally scrapped the whole thing. No Man’s Sky is a real comeback, because it’s still the same game, just fixed. FFXIV is really a different game but with the same name.

      It’s impossible I actually played 1.0 it was I can’t even imagine how to begin…
      I had latency on menus, on fucking menus. I couldn’t believe it.
      I think since FFXIV is such a lore heavy game and there this feeling that people are nostalgic for 1.0
      You’re not. It’s incomprehensibly bad. It felt like some cash gab Z-tier game from steam.
      It ran like ass, the controls were ass, the gameplay was pathetically bad, you couldn’t level because limits…

          I don’t see 1.0 being popular on Ganker. For the most part, Ganker’s biggest flaw is that you’re not allowed to consider ANYTHING good without being a shill.

          >You bet your ass if TLOU2 was hated by everyone
          It pretty much is. I’ve never met a TLOU2 fanboy.
          >Here’s some fag on twitter!
          Like 1% of the population uses twitter, and a good portion of them almost literally live on twitter. Left wing activists sorts aren’t real fans, either. They like things for the influence and control that it brings them, and they’re legitimately baffled by the idea that someone might just want them to fuck off because they liked the games that were being made before they showed up without any hidden ulterior motive.
