because whenever I get to be too powerful or too wealthy, the game becomes boring and I start over with a new character.
or the opposite, you could be getting weaker and the enemies too powerful.

nothing wrong with grinding, as long as its fun-FPS games are total grindings gameplay, and still fun(to most gamers apparently).

if you have to master some combat strategies, or learn skills(like when to defend, when to circle your enemy etc) that's not grinding to me either.

but more related to joysticq article, i think they're right in general. the approach of games are less content, or too much content without any "fun" factor in them. hence they feed you with grinding tasks.

the point of games are to be fun. i started playing bard's tale just now, and even how stupid the gameplay is/combat there are some nice humorous dialogs which makes it a fun game(so far). games today are missing that, BIG.
