Grinding with a nice view


With games light on story and heavy on grinding such as Dragon Quest or Pokemon the feel of the world, its charm if you will is of the highest importance. I guess it's like if you were to take a long walk you would like your surroundings to be pleasant. You rather take a stroll through a nice park than an industrial estate.

The slightly futuristic world of Pokemon where man lives a peaceful existence close to nature, offers the perfect atmosphere for long hours of relaxed grinding. The mix of sleek high tech and beautiful green plains and forests makes the repetitive combat much more tolerable.

The highly anime influenced take on western fantasy of the Dragon Quest games is another world perfect for grinding. Even if you are fighting all kinds of evil monsters and have to traverse various dungeons, it's still all very cute and charming. It's like the world of Tolkien was adopted for the under 13 crowd. The Dragon Quest universe is just so darn lovely that I do not at all mind fighting the same silly monsters over and over again.

Dragon Quest rocks. I have to pick up IX asap. You're spot-on about the grinding thing. I don't particularly like it, especially when it's the focal point of the game (damn you, NIS srpgs) but in the DQ series it doesn't bug me since I'm so into the atmosphere of the games.
