A top-down bullet hell game with character and item variation. This would have been great in the early 90s arcades.

It's good/meh. Not really for me.

Roam around harassing NPCs and accidentally-clicking in combat.

It has some really obvious and fundamental flaws that make it just terrible to cope with. I feel like I have to struggle against its design. The abilities are buckshot across the interface, the inventory is a hot mess, and combat is awkward and unforgiving. The dialog trees are kind of stupid most of the time, and player customization isn't particularly present, which is strange for a roleplaying game. I can only see that this has appeal because there have been no decent AAA games lately, and their variety is absolute shit.

Yet another MMO, but Japanese and built on a huge franchise and the smouldering remains of an abysmal failure.

I don't understand how this is popular. It has boring repetitive abilities, a confusing layout and a terrible map system.

  • Properly named Final Fantasy XIV
  • Technically I'm looking at Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn
  • aka ファイナルファンタジーXIV: 新生エオルゼア
  • aka Fainaru Fantajī Fōtīn: Shinsei Eoruzea

    • Apparently that's not a joke.
