It has nothing to do with my spell, but it's fun to pretend my spell has a really short cast time!

I feel it adds suspense to the casting process. Making it more exciting.

or how about the fun animation lag in FF12 that allowed enemies to attack you faster if you cast more then 1 spell at a time with your party? That was awesome... basically made constant offensive magic pointless, cause if your attacking with magic you'll have to wait to heal with it. Seems the further they get away from their 2d background the worse off the gameplay gets.

Graphics < Gameplay.

I also like it when the cast bar shows my spell taking forever to complete and then my cast ends before the bar fills. It's like having Christmas come early!

Glad to know that it's meaningless for everyone else, too. I was rather bothered by it; it makes the game look rather clunky and cheap when simple bars freeze or fail to operate. Here's hoping it gets fixed! >_<;

I love casting thunder when the casting bar says im casting stoneskin! And the bar is full 3 secs before the spell actually goes off.

Its just there for aesthetics as far as im concerned, as long as my spells still go off in a reasonable time period its cool with me. I can see this kinda thing being fixed in the future, its not breaking the game, just a annoying bug.

If the gameplay was awesome(Which actualy it is for me) and the graphics were bad I promise there would be a flood of people complaining that it is 2010 and this game looks like runescape QQQQQQQ etc etc. Nothing would change.
