I will never play a game with randomized mechanics that you have to pay real money for. I spent over a decade playing CCGs. Buying packs just to find rare cards to win with. Dropping hundreds on booster sets. Then I discovered how many board games and strategy games come complete in a box for $50. Collectible card games like Magic and Yu Gi Oh are overpriced and poorly designed compared to the likes of Betrayal, Catan, or Terraforming Mars. The same is true for traditional games vs games with Gacha or MTS mechanics. 

I havent spent a single penny on the game and going strong still.

I've heard that argument before. "MTG isn't expensive! You can build a good deck out of commons and uncommons!"

Its not a argument, its a fact - its easy to play the system to the point where you dont even need to pay a single penny.

Like for an example, this draw I just made just a min ago - costed me only 25 mythrils - you get one mythril for each battle, each day you can get 3-5 mythrils for free just by logging in, and doing special events such as anniversary events, you can get 25-50 per run.

There's no point in paying anything - people who pay are people who have no patience or self control lol.

How long does a run take?

The one where you get 25-50 mythril on special events takes 1 battle - which takes a few seconds because you can one shot the enemy even at a low level.

Regular battles with 1 fight takes me 15-20 seconds (unless its a boss battle which could take me a min or two).

Normal battles (that get you 1 mythril) have 3 fights which usually takes me a min or two.

All of my characters are lv 99 (which is easy to get due to experience eggs you get from special events).

FFRK is really easy and not that grindy.


They also recently added a story mode which involves your original character to go into Final Fantasy worlds and experience the game's plot due to the original story's plot.

I find it a nice time sink when I have nothing else to do when I am outside of my home.

Like I said, your results may vary but I built up my party and cast of characters without spending a single penny on the game.

Are they going to fix the horrendous final boss? Because that's where I quit.

Meh, I got 95 h of gaming time out of Octopath Traveler. $60 for that amount of game time is fair.

I got 100 hours out of Stardew Valley. So by that logic it should have cost $60 too.

It could be. It could be $60 and no one would bat an eye. Except for the fact that no one knows the developer and they practically have to price it the way they do or else no one would buy it. Octopath Traveler is a AAA game and the well known devs are going to price it however they want b/c of that. A game being 2D doesn't mean it can't be full price. That's an incredibly naive sentiment to have. It's all about how the developers want to price it and what you're willing to pay for it. 



You know that thing when you uhhh...and then you...hmmm. But then you have to...umm, Yuh.

I can't think of a single Indie game that's priced at $60.

Well, I'd at least try it then. My current phone probably can't run it very well though.
