I wasn't sure where to put this, but I hope the mods forgive me anyway.
So anyway, I was googling for Final Fantasy toys like the good little geek I am, when I found something interesting- Somebody had written their PhD thesis on freaking FINAL FANTASY X.
It's here if anyone is game to read it, but I should warn you it's over 4mb and nearly 300 pages long. I assume it's about how games being involving are bad for gamers, or about symbolism in the game or something along those lines
I can understand incorporating your interests in your academic studies (hell, I breezed through my Japanese contemporary studies course), but I find this a little bit extreme. And this person will have Dr. in their title for researching Final Fantasy.
Must have had fun though.
