FFXIV Vs. The World – How Does FFXIV Stack Up Against Other MMOs?

As good of a game FFXIV is, it can’t be helped to compare MMORPGs against each other. After all, they are fighting for position in the same market. They are competing for market share and bragging comes with that. World of Warcraft has been in the top of the MMORPG race for quite a while now in terms of sales and there is no expected change of reign anytime soon. But what are some of the factors that players or reviewers of MMORPGs consider when they rank the top online games today? For sure sales is one but aside from…
