Ever wanted to get into Final Fantasy XIV, the critically acclaimed MMO from Square Enix? It's simple! Just make sure you check out this quick six-part video series first, to get your head around the many different aspects of adventuring in Eorzea.

All kidding aside, this is a pretty cool series and a great way of minimizing the incredibly daunting prospect of jumping into an MMO as expansive as Final Fantasy XIV, some 12 years after its initial launch.

The series starts with the basics of character creation, faction selection, basic questing, and first steps, all the way through using the Duty Finder and joining a Grand Company. It's all presented in an informative, if somewhat cheesy, animated format, and Square Enix should be commended for continuing to make the onboarding process as smooth as they possibly can.

You can check out the intro above, and the first episode below. For your convenience, follow these links to episodes 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6.
