Whether you're a fan or not, it is always sad when the final curtain falls on a MMO, especially one with a long and storied history. With its 14 years of subscription-based adventures, Final Fantasy XI is one of the longest-running games of its type, and as such has inexorably been a part of many a gamer's life. For comparison's sake, World of Warcraft is a mere 11 years old.
While the PS2 and Xbox 360 servers will be shut down next March, fans will be able to continue playing on PC past that time. Those with an inactive account as of October 23 are able to play the final chapter for free.
