Seems like a self-indulgent load of crap to me. All the author did was piss his pants over a crappy new phrase he wants to promote as a synonym to grind. "Hobby elements." Perhaps someone needs to look up the definition of hobby.

I've been saying this forever, it's nothing new. MMOs are a HOBBY they are not games. Many times they are frustrating and require lots of effort to excel at, just like a hobby.

Meh. It's a good point, I suppose. There are many elements of a game that seem more like a hobby than an actual game. But I personally don't think that they -should- be a part of games. Games should be games. Not hobbies. As usual, I'm commenting at an ungodly hour of the morning, so I've got nothing further to contribute.
