My girlfriend now laughs at me for playing this game, and here is why:
First time she watches me play, I am in a cave killing mole shrews. She watches for about 5 seconds and says "Is that a shrew you're killing? Do those even fight back?" I said yes they do and was insulted, because sadly it was the toughest thing I had fought at the time. She then asks "Why are you killing a shrew?" I had no idea. It was just sitting in this cave minding its own business and I decided to randomly attack it. At this moment I accidently hit a second shrew using an AoE attack. The two of them beat me to death, my girlfriend laughed, I cried.
A few days later I was in Limsa, killing some puk hatchlings. She walks by again, snickers and says "Are you killing shrews again, oh wait is that a rabbit this time?". I snapped back with "NO, it's a Puk Hatchling, which is pretty much a baby dragon!" She didn't seem impressed. She then came by 5 minutes later as I was killing a Plains rat. FML I hate this game.
