ahhh but as i stated i AM a patient person. being patient means you can do, or wait, or whatever, for long periods of time and not mind it. im a patient person, however i cant do dull things whether it be for 1 hour or 1 minute, nothing to do with patience <or at he very least very little> at least the way i think of patience. its more of me having ADD and needing, maybe not entertainment, but for what im doing to not be dull
and as for not liking the game, that couldnt be further from the truth. not liking one aspect of it isnt the same as not liking the game as a whole. and rather than have that one aspect frustrate you, most find it easier to get around it. others just dont have the time, in which case its not about being entertained, its not about patience, and its not about being frustrated and looking for loopholes, but about not having enough of the single most valuable resource in the world...time. and before you say "FFXI is a game that takes time and you dont have the time then you should find a game you do have time for" <wait did that sound rude, i dont mean it to be> well what if they dont have time for it, but enjoy it...enjoy it a lot. for that 30 minutes a day their on maybe thats the highlight of their day. im personally not going to suggest that they be barred from what gets them through the day because they dont have more time to put into it
and on the last part...wait wait wait, do you mean literally me. ok this has been going on for a while. i didnt mind it as examples or whatever but im no dedicated gil buyer nor do i promote it. i bought it in the beginning, but prefered getting stuff through quests...that and i found mining/black smithing quite soothing as well as profitable <not omg im rich profitable, but i got by without te need to buy> i mean it fits my criteria so well. fairly enjoyble, good way to use up time, and it made me money
am i cold hearted? to an extet i believe every human to be. selfish? same as before. thoughtless? i wouldnt say so
i dont like how this turned from a debate to questioning my character >_<
anyway i suppose overall i agree with you so we should be able to leve it at that. i think we've done all we can and at this point all we would really be doing is brining in personally beliefes and other things that we likely wouldnt be able to convince the other person of.
so basically im saying this: truce ^_^
