I have a few thoughts floating on this one …
- The article feels half done compared to his other stuff.
- I *do* know what he's saying about the grind. But as he said in his last article 'just walk away'. I get that feeling fairly often - last year, when I played 'Legend of Heroes' on the PSP, then 'Final Fantasy IV' on the GBA, by the time I touched 'Tales of Phantasia' for the GBA I thought I would DIE if I touched another jRPG! So I went back to CRPGs and shooters and adventure games and other stuff … and within a few months I was ready to tackle Tales for a review.
- I also agree that a good story and decent motivations should get you around the level-up grind. But as noted, Jeff's last two articles have centered around MMO's and he also talks about putting countless hours into older MMO's as well. And MMO's more than anything center on the grind …
