As for the original story, that's just freaky. I know some people take their online gaming seriously, but that's just horrible. To top it off, someone actually spent money on a videogame-sword. That's pretty disturbing too.

I 'spose the only time I ever got upset with a game was back when Final Fantasy 7 was super-popular. I'd been playing it for hours and hours, and finally get to the last boss. There was a save-point or something right before the battle, so I do my save thing... I left to do something after that (probably pump myself up for the ensuing epic battle of huge proportions, or something as equally pathetic)... anyway, later that day, my sister is playing some Parappa the Rappa and saves her game over my Final Fantasy game! Ergh...


Damn, Cuna, as a one time FF junkie, I can safely say my sister would have paid for that one dearly....

Cuna,

My sister did the smae thing! When I was in theird grade, I had just beaten the elite four in blue for game boy for the 8th time, so I got some secret weapon or something. I save, and my little sister wants to start a new game. I said fine, but don't save. I go back to the game the next day, and she overwrote my file!! what a waste. It toook me a while to get over that one.

I should get that game out again and see if I can finally get through it.

I almost bought 7 again a few weeks back... I saw it at a used game store for like $5.00. Unfortunately, I had to decide between that and lunch, and went with lunch.... :-D

Wow, $5.00... I remember buying it for $50.00 back in the day. :,-(

Now I've definitely got to start playing it again - get my money's worth...

I used to play Diablo II online, and there was a huge eBay market for those items. Don't know if anyone here played, but I remember playing with people who said they had just bought their Stone of Jordan. Of course, I ask how much in-game gold did it cost them? Sadly, they answered in dollars...that's when I knew some people were too obsessed.

'Cuna, you should definitely play through FFVII again. That and Chrono Trigger are the two best games ever. My save file has everyone as level 99, with all of their limit breaks, ultimate weapons, and every single materia in the game maximized. Yeah.. I definitely passed 99:59:59 time on it a long time ago. :-/

My sister played that game online, and I do remember that there were new weapons you could only get playing online. I think it's a neat concept, but when you're paying real money to get stuff, it's a little over the top. :-o

Final Fantasy VIII was so money. We played the card game mostly. We never did get all of them because we actually decided to beat the game. :,-( I can't remember if we played VII or not...but for 5 bucks, it sounds like a heck of a bargain!

Good to see Linds isn't so obsessed that he wouldn't eat because of it. ;-D
