This might be random, but my dad is over 60 years old.
Despite this, he’s a huge gamer.
Sometimes, I’d come home and find him playing FPS games and stuff. It’d be pretty surprising.
The other day I spotted him playing Monster Hunter and was like “wow…”
My mom was going to buy my dad a PS4 for his birthday.
I had heard about something interesting as well.
FFXIV is having an Invite a Friend Campaign.
If you invite a friend to play and they then subscribe for 3 months, you can get a chocobo that two people can ride.
I… want it…
But… the catch is that the account must pay at least 3 month’s subscription fee.
I had the idea to give my dad, who’s getting a PS4, a copy of FFXIV and time cards for 3 months.
During Obon break, I would go visit my parents and be all “I’ll help you make a character!” and get my dad on Gungnir server. Then I’d give him a simple adventurer’s crash course to get him started. I’ll then have him add my character as a friend, and I think I’ll give him a hand in some instanced dungeons.
But of course I’ll hide the fact that that character is me, his son.
That fresh-faced 60-year-old Warrior of Light…
I would help his character grow and level, even take down T5’s Twintania…
And then I would, as planned, reveal my identity as his son.
I’m kinda excited lol
I wonder if my dad can beat Titan (Hard)….
This really is exciting lol…
To Be Continued.
- Obon is a Japanese holiday around mid-August.
