To be honest, the point of whatever debate was happening on pages 2 and 3 are completely lost to me. I honestly don't have the patience to sift through meaningless metaphor and allusions.
No two players are alike, and their tastes in gaming can be completely differing, almost opposing. The dream game for a player like Tro44 is a game I'm fairly certain I would probably despise. Features that Goldenwing would enjoy, I feel wouldn't address issues even she and her guild has. Samfortal wants more Sandbox Elements; I grow bored to the point of hatred of most titles that are sandbox in nature. Currently Rift has something for all of us, but it will never be the ideal game for all of us.
