Back in the early 2000s, Final Fantasy 11 was famous for completely disrespecting players' time. Masochistic and convoluted, the MMO drew in thousands of dedicated players who traded hours upon hours of grinding for the sweet feeling of accomplishment. Fifteen years later, more player-friendly MMOs monopolise the genre. And yet, there are still hundreds of fans foregoing cleaner gaming experiences for FF11's endlessly time-consuming and punishing challenges on legacy servers.
