Some of my older posts on FFXI are now all under FFXI section since I know I will be writing more about it… plus posting more screenshots in the future…. Consider the fact (on averge) I spend about 20+ hrs. with the game I think I should set up a special section for it, if not a seperate blog.
The game is not at the point affecting my social life yet *couch* since Alison is being as considerate and as understanding as possible, but she does get annoyed if I play the game. (I love you Alley if you are reading this – and I know you don’t read my blog. Haha…)
One thing I also slowly discovered, is that, FFXI is not just an MMORPG, it’s also has a strong sense of Japanese “Life Similation Game” feel to it. There are all kinds of similation games popular in Japan from horse racing, to train station/system sim, dating similation etc…. FFXI truely encourage you to do crafting (like cooking, fishing, farming, and smithing, etc) within the game… I just thought that’s a very interesting thing that FFXI brings to the US gamer which is rather old in Japan, yet new to US.
