Square-Enix: Because Fun Is Overrated: MMORPG Edition
There are times when I sort of miss Final Fantasy XI. I did have some fun playing it.
Then I read about things like a boss that takes over 18 hours to beat and decide that, no, maybe I don't really ever want to play a game like that again.
There's a great quote in that article:
We’ve recently learned from the Premier Site Summit that Sage Sundi believes the Absolute Virtue fight to take eighteen hours (or less if you’re lucky).
I think I'll pass, thanks anyway.
