Opinion: Why Final Fantasy XIV is so successful

Matthew: “The success story of Final Fantasy XIV is no surprise by now. Most players in the MMO gaming sphere know all about the games infamous failure and unprecedented successful relaunch on August 24, 2013nearly a year after the previous iteration shut down in 2012. This grand turnaround, to my knowledge, has never occurred in modern gaming history, at least to this level of success and praise. So one might be keen to ask, what is it that makes Final Fantasy XIV such a good game? While I cannot say I know all of the answers, I would like to highlight several defining characteristics of the game and its team that I believe contribute heavily to differentiating it from its competitors, especially in the standardization of todays game market. So, why does Final Fantasy XIV continue to enjoy success almost nine years after its original release?”
