Having played Final Fantasy XIV since the very first 1.0 E3 demo nearly a decade ago, it would take me ages to describe how much it's evolved.
I've seen it go from a tepid little thing that was somehow a step down from XI in every way to a monstrous project that become one of my favorite MMOs of all time. It's still amazing that director Yoshi-P and his crew were able to turn this franchise around, and that Square Enix footed the bill -- it will go down as one of the biggest Cinderella stories in gaming.
That said, this A Realm Reborn incarnation has been playing it relatively safe since 2013. While the team has delivered on their promise to make it the most frequently updated MMO ever, the themepark-esque grind of the endgame has become a little too much for some.
On the upside the the newest expansion, Stormblood, breathes more life into this already beautiful game.
