If your so fvckin BUSY, go out and get your sh1t done before [complaining] about how someones hobby takes time and doesn't suit your chosen lifestyle
I have to agree with the sentiment here (if not the rather puerile articulation). I do wish that more people would consider the plethora of high-profile, casual-oriented, fantasy-themed MMORPGs that currently exist before acting as though it would be a terrible thing for one to require a more than 60 minutes of dedication on weekends to make significant progress.
Moreover, it is worth pointing out that a game's lifespan is in a strong way determined by the amount of time it takes to complete things (and how many things there to do, of course). We see how common it is for a game like KotOR to draw people in with promise of groundbreaking and engaging content, and then how quickly those same people leave once they've completed all of said content in 2-3 months. While a time-sink may seem like only an inconvenience to some, it can also play the vital role of elevating player investment and long-term retention. They should be done in moderation, not done away with.
Alotta what KaneKitty said, minus any possibility of over moderation... were the quickies should be the plenty, and journeys be plentiful :D and the min focus
(if not the rather puerile articulation)
Id say my response was more of a reply that matched the OP's intensity... but if pompously offending someone you agree with is your way, good luck with that.
