Not THAT sort grinding, I'm referring to grinding in RPG games. =P Source: Wikipedia A few questions to answer, if you will: 1) Do you like grinding? 2) If yes, do you prefer to: o-- grind in real-time combat RP games (where you attack monsters freely without having a turn-based style). EX: Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hearts II, Dark Cloud 2, Secret of Mana, Star Ocean. o-- grind in turn-based combat. EX: Final Fantasy 7, 8, Breath of Fire. 3) Does your motivation drop when you know you'll have to grind, in the middle of grinding or after you're all finish grinding? Feel free to add any questions of your own. ~*~*~*~ 1) I'll do it as long as I know the reward will be worth it at the end. 2) REAL-TIME! Turn-based is just too slow for me and it feels like eternity whenever I know it's going to be turn-based. 3) Yes, usually starting at the beginning of grinding. As soon as I know I'll be grinding for awhile I get in that funk of "Ugh... a few days of grinding, now. =(" - Sometimes I lose interest in the game if it gets too daunting.
