So, I was having a cool conversation with a sales associate at GameStop today, and it made me think more about this post that I'm creating. She mentioned that she was playing Final Fantasy XV: A Real Reborn. I asked if she played FFXI, to which she replied, "no." Therefore, I have a few questions for you, my fellow Cheerful Ghosts.
