Lately, since real world has constrained my board game playing, I've been playing a bit more PC games, and now Michael prompted me to start seriously thinking about Final Fantasy 12... After a few months of PBEMing, I've reached the conclusion many of you immediately reached immediately: its pretty boring. I now realize, at least to me, board games are at their root a social experience. One thing I can say about playing board games on the PC is that its a good way to master the rules and decide if a game is worth buying.
