COUNTDOWN: Final Fantasy XIII, Day Eleven


Back in 1992 Square Enix began to experiment with the idea of an online Final Fantasy. With the growing popularity of other online games, Square had decided that they were going to give the Final Fantasy series a new look. The project would take ten years to complete.

Final Fantasy XI (Eleven) was released in Japan in 2002, it didn't reach America until 2004. Before we continue, I'm going to be completely honest. Final Fantasy XI is the only game in the ENTIRE series that I have not played. Yes, I know this is almost like a mid-life crisis to learn, but it has to be said. The main reason I've never played the game is because of money. Final Fantasy XI came out to be $100.00 in America. Not to mention that at the end of every month you were required to pay a monthly fee. Or so I've been told. So, I've never played XI, and probably never will. But I don't care.

So, now that I've told everyone my deepest darkest secret, I think that you should all know that despite me never playing this game, it's still pretty awesome... or so I've been told. The game followed the Final Fantasy tradition better than Final Fantasy XII did, so fans around the world were incredibly pleased and satisfied. It's the second highest rated online game, next to World of Warcraft. (You have to be a REAL nerd to play that. I'm only a poser.)

Anyways, I really can't say much about the game since I've never played it. So yeah, I'm done. I know that this post was... terrible, but that's what happens when you don't know anything about what you're blogging. So it really isn't my fault... or is it? I dunno... I'm done now.

In conclusion, I'd just like to point out that we're still at the peak of our countdown to Final Fantasy XIII. Only eleven more days (counting today) remain. Tomorrow we'll start talking about the classic Final Fantasy's. Be excited... or afraid... or both.

I wish I had a chance to play XI because I hear good things about it... I like Final Fantasy... yeah.

  1. I never played it either..It looked kind of like a world of warcraft type game..with a final fantasy make over. Nothing too special.
