I'm a died in the wool FF player ever since the release of the original NES FF game. You can call me a homer/fanboy, whatever label you want to place. I love the FF series and have never dabbled in any other mmorg, although I did play DragonQuest when I was younger, but it was just a phase I was going through.
So recently the FF servers were offline and I grew bored and wanted to experiment with this new game. I mean all my friends and family all told me to stay away because it was like WoW, but my friend and I picked up Rift and decided to give it a whirl.
All the time we kept saying, it was only going to be for a time, and we would go back to 14 when the servers were back up. I mean how nice will it be to have 100 anima and all our guardian's favor, and be back with our linkshell and so on and so forth.
Well after playing Rift for a week, I have feelings for Rift, and now I'm kinda confused. I don't want to tell my friends because they may think I'm a sell-out. I still consider myself very much FF and will never leave it. I actually like 14 very much. But at the same time I don't want to cancel my Rift account. I'd like to see it sometimes when nothing is going on in my Linkshell. I'd like to log in to it now and do some quests, and maybe ride a mount. You know jump arond here and there.
Is this wrong to feel this way? How can you serve 2 MMORG masters because you will love the one and hate the other? What will my FF friends and family think if I still decide to play Rift on occasion?
