So because I plan to buy a PS3 the moment the Slim is released (ANNOUNCE THE DAMN THING ALREADY), I’ve been thinking more and more as if I already own one. Like I said, I even bought inFAMOUS the other day in Murfreesboro: City of Champions. Anyway, aside from getting more excited for the obvious choices – The Last Guardian, Uncharted 2, Gran Turismo 5, God of War 3 – Another wagon of hype has surprised me even more than my recent Forza 3 obsession.
Yes, I really want to play Final Fantasy XIV. This is only a surprise when you’re reminded that it’s a MMO in the vein of FFXI and World of Warcraft; a genre that I’ve typically stayed away from. I avoided all MMOs for a long time because they didn’t really appeal to me, and I even gave WoW a fair shake one time and shrugged at the experience. But something about this PS3 exclusive (at least for consoles and at least for now) really speaks to me. Maybe it’s because I’ll have the chance to start along with everyone else for once, maybe it’s because they’re making it easier to solo, but either way, I want this game. GIMME.
