You know what I am sick of? Retailers and people of this world acting as if video games are just for children. I am a 29 year old male and I have been playing video games my entire life. I enjoy doing it in my free time. I prefer to play video games as a hobby rather than go play golf or something. How come it's fine for Wal-Mart to sell rated R movies but a rated M video game always causes some big controversy? I got news for you media, the big spenders on video games these days are in the 25-29 age group, and there is no reason you should be crying over a video games that were rated appropriately. It's as stupid as if you were against Wal-Mart selling rated R movies, or any other retailer for that matter. Grow the hell up.
On another note, why is it in American culture (if you can call it that) that it is alright for a movie to spill blood and guts everywhere, mutilations, murders, rape, torture, you name it.... but sex is something unnatural that should be left out of movies? What the hell? Sex is unnatural but we can watch movies where people are tortured and murdered in cold blood, and with gory realism I might add. Let me repeat that one more time, murder is natural but sex isn't. What is wrong with you people?
Aren't you the GM of that guild my brother (Chenaniah) was in on Red Eye Mountain? lol

Personally I'd like the idea of being about to jump in an out of the game quickly. As FFXI is right now you honestly can't jump on for a half hour if that is all you have time for (and I think they can lose player base with that fact). Truly you need 2-3 hours minimum you can sit down and play FFXI for a full filling experience. I also hate the fact that you need to be married to the game in order to play endgame. There have been linkshell I have been kicked out of because I wasn't camping a king at noon or at 4 am. Not very cool when you consider I work.
Which is exactly why it should be aimed at normal players, and not jobless drop outs who live in their parents basement.
