Final Fantasy XIV was first released in 2010 and was an immediate disaster. It cannot be overstated what a complete failure the original game was: it was just plain bad. If you have any interest in game development, the documentary on it is fascinating. The short version is that it was a mess inside and out: a very pretty picture with no substance whatsoever.
The game was subsequently revamped and relaunched as A Realm Reborn, which released in 2013. Since then, the game has had an incredible rise, with a particular peak at its spectacular Heavensward expansion. Shadowbringers, the third expansion, released in July 2019, and has been extremely well-reviewed.
If you're a FF fan who wants to experience a new journey, you can't do better than this.
The following profile is from the first Encylopedia Eorzea lorebook.
Ever since Nidhogg razed his village, murdering his parents and younger brother, Estinien devoted himself wholly to the pursuit of revenge. Orphaned at the age of twelve, he was raised by Alberic, the then-current Azure Dragoon. However, Estinien's relationship with his foster father was complicated — while he respected him greatly as a soldier, he could not help but resent him for failing to protect his village.
As of his thirty-second year, Estinien has no hobbies, and he concerns himself only with honing his skills (and occasionally eating anything passably delicious) that he might one day enact his retribution. It was with this single-minded dedication that he overcame every trial set before him and earned the title of Azure Dragoon.
