@therealmoot: I know! What the hell? Paradise sold gangbusters and they just decided, "Eh, good enough."? It's funny because the mentality we want is what leads to so many sequels which pisses everyone off (because people are dumb) but they drop one of the best games of the decade, a year's worth of huge, free DLC, and then just disappear. F*ckin' crazy.

In hindsight maybe they worked so hard supporting Burnout Paradise because they knew the franchise was over...?

Gonna second the comment that you shouldn't use macros for combat. Personally, I have very, very few combat macros, playing endgame on multiple classes. Later on you'll want the freedom of choosing specific things for segments of fights. That said, these are things that shouldn't concern you too much at level 20. The first 50 levels of the game are mostly tutorial for the controls, combat roles, how to travel around the world, and of course for the story. The time to hone skills and optimize hotbars will certainly come.

Glad you're enjoying the game! I got into it at a time when I could barely find five hours per week to play video games and now I've played it more than any game in probably a decade. It's the best FF game, best MMO game, best PS4 game, and my personal favorite game of all time, hands-down.

@snakelinksonic: I'm on Adamantoise. I run an FC and a linkshell so I can't leave my troops! If I ever make an alt, I'll be sure to hit you guys up.

@snakelinksonic: This was fantastic. Until this point I'd never even checked to see if there was a FFXIV community on Giant Bomb. Ironic since my character's name is Keeng Taswell.

I'd love for the staff to play the game past 20 and see more of what makes it the best MMO ever (and possibly the best rpg in a generation) - or at least see why it does more new things than being pretty. If nothing else, the incredibly unlikely and wildly successful turnaround is the biggest video game news story no one talks about.

Edit: Awesome coincidence that my first post about my favorite game on my favorite site is my 1000th.

I agree that it's a fantastic game and I think your connection to that event in your life is pretty cool. There are plenty of games (and platforms) that I have that sort of connection to so that was great to read. I may end up downloading that game. I don't think I've played it since renting it back in '98 and I know I never finished it. And you ain't lyin about that soundtrack.

As the resident game enthusiast among my circle of people I spend time with and junk, I've been asked to evaluate the Wii version of the game. My...we'll call her sister-in-law wants to know if this game is worth keeping the Wii around for her young children for another Christmas or if it's significantly better on the PS3/360. Her kids have Skylanders for Wii and love it but now they're interested in Infinity which has all this fancy online stuff on the HD consoles. So how is the Wii version? Is it at least comparable?

Don Mattrick looks dead inside

I don't even know what that means but thank you.

Thanks, Patrick. You're giving this series the proper nod and respect. They're fantastic experiences and it makes us feel great as fans to see someone helping spread the word.

I've never agreed more with a group of people.

Just chiming in to say that I would still love to see some Giant Bomb coverage of this game. It's my GOTY, and more people deserve to know about it.

Patrick has a copy so maybe we'll see a quicklook or something after all.

Agreed. It might be my GotY as well. At the very least, it's the best game on either the 3DS or Vita, hands down.
