Despite originally launching back in May 2002, Final Fantasy XI still gets updated regularly, but hasn't had a major expansion since 2013 or a major new scenario since 2015. Still, it's impressive that the game has run continuously since 2002 and still has many diehard fans. In fact, the popular Twitch personality Ninja can be found streaming the game from time to time.
