I am sure that a lot of gamer’s are familiar with this. What do you think is it time to move away from it? Personally, I have had some great times in grinding parties especially in Final Fantasy. The only problem being when servers are quiet or you can’t get the correct jobs for the party.
Is it just a case of people not having enough patience nowadays? I spent a long time on FFXI working through the story lines and levelling jobs, but this gave me the opportunity to properly learn how to play the role. If you skip grinding out altogether will it detriment the ability of the player?
Personally I would like to keep it in the game but at level that does not take months to get to the top level. What are you thoughts?
“I’ve been playing RPGs for a long time but not the longest time. My first serious RPG that I actually finished was Pokemon Red (1998) on the Gameboy. It’s important to note that as a handheld RPG the experience of playing it is/was much different than that of a home console RPG. It wasn’t until three years later that I beat Final Fantasy X (2001) on the PS2. While this was not the first console RPG I ever played, it was the first one I ever finished. The first one I can remember playing was Digimon World (1999) on the PS1. I put many hours into this game and enjoyed it quite a bit but was ultimately never able to complete it, which I actually blame on design flaws due to the nature of the generation style gameplay. Call me a noob if you want, but that’s not really relevant to this particular discussion. I had been aware of RPGs like the highly prestigious Final Fantasy VII, but I never completed any console RPGs before FFX. I consider this the true start point of my love for RPGs. And I still consider FFX the best FF after having now played FFVII, FFX, FFXII, FFXIII, and some spin off titles.“
