The Daily Grind: Would you play a stripped-down mobile version of your favorite MMO?


The (as of yet unspecified) plans to create a mobile version of Final Fantasy XI touches on a sore subject for me: the lack of quality MMOs in the mobile market. Perhaps they’re too complex to boil down to a touch screen, but I’m hoping that if FFXI can create a decent mobile adaptation, then other studios will perhaps follow in its path.

But I would even settle for a lesser version of my favorite MMOs to play while I’m fiddling around with a tablet or my phone. I envision a game where you can still help your characters out by doing some combat, exploration, and resource collecting during your off-hours, leaving the high adventure stuff for when you get back to your PC or console.

Thus, I’m wondering if you would play a stripped-down mobile version of your favorite MMO? Would that be useful, fun, or pointless?
