In college, Mark Doherty didn’t have many friends who followed video games — at least not as closely as he did. When he made jokes about E3, his friends gave him confused looks. So, in an effort to find people who would get his jokes, he started a Twitter account, a parody account of Sony Computer Entertainment’s then CEO and chairman Kaz Hirai. The account became popular — to say the least. Where other parody accounts often get shut down, Fake Kaz Hirai, @KazHiraiCEO on Twitter, won the blessing of some at Sony. It earned followers like president of Sony Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida and Naughty Dog creative director Neil Druckmann. It got a lot bigger than Doherty ever expected and lasted years longer than he thought it would. But seven years, 127,000 followers and 2,390 tweets later, Doherty just hung up the towel.

“It was my birthday and I had to have Elza.” This middle-aged, married man, going by Nothing024 on Reddit, missed out on his first chance to get the limited-time promotional crossover character in Final Fantasy Brave Exvius, and only had two weeks to try to get her again. A patch had increased the chances he’d pull rare characters like her, but nowhere did it say that Elza was a 1-in-400 pull, with each try costing about $2.50. He eventually got her, though — one character in a game with a cast of hundreds. “I charged $1500 that day to get her,” he wrote. It’s easy to get hooked on Final Fantasy Brave Exvius. It’s a traditional Japanese role-playing game split into episodes, with new ones released roughly once a month, and streamlined for mobile play. Brave Exvius’ main selling point is its huge crossover melting pot of characters from almost every Final Fantasy game, and from many other Square Enix titles.
