One wonders what an adult could have accomplished with those millions.

Of course, someone more impoverished than myself might levy the same criticism against me.

Personally, if my dream was to make 'Teh Awesome MMORPG' I'd have started small and founded a studio, put out a few games to get an income base while working on it in the background. You know, apply a sound business strategy...

Also hire an actual team that does everything for you! D:

Really... Even *I* can tell the problems with that, and I have like 0 actual game design experience other than a textbook called the Methodology of Game Storyboarding. >.>

Also, personally I despise grinding games.

I despise ADDICTIVE grinding games.

'this grinding is shit. but... I'm nearly at the next level...'

THAT.

The game I like the most was Mabinogi before G13, and second is Dungeon and Fighters Online because its addicting PvP that was actually well balanced and depended on your control, mostly.

Disgaea 1 consumed my life for far longer than it should have. Getting the full compliment of level 100 Legendary Highest Tier weapons was only an exercise in patience, especially when there was not a single challenge in the game that necessitated it.

Quitting?

On an unrelated note: What was that MMO that had it's servers crashed by the dev. team because the players were about to 'finish' the game?

To think, less than 150 years ago you would have had to pay a shilling to gawk at the mentally ill.
You just got sigged WayWard!

   Also as someone learning to program I must say that no matter how much money he had this game is not in anyway programmable. There are very few things you can say where words like never and always can apply but in this case I can with no hesitation say that as of today with the tech we have the game would never be possible even if you dumped millions of work hours into it.

Actually, with enough money anything is possible. No tech? MAKE IT

Really. With the right people, you could probably do much more than you would think.

Whether or not it would be feasible is a whole 'nuther question.

That is why I said "as of today with the tech we have" as even something like this may end up workable if you pour enough money into and into developing tech for it.

Also your avatar looks like something I remember seeing at some point, mind telling me where it is from? I just can't remember anything beyond knowing it looks familiar.

That sounds like FF11.  I haven't heard that specific story but it's almost exactly like a thing they would do.

I heard that story, how they unplugged it just as they were about to beat an "unbeatable" boss.

I think that happened in Everquest too...
