  1. Yay! You guys are doing crossovers again!

    Back in the day, Dragon Quest games were notorious for grinding endlessly or you couldn’t beat any of the bosses in the game. I remember your 100% Honest Blizzard video where you mentioned that people can pay money to get up to level 90 in World of Warcraft which is a huge slap in the face to people who spent all their time grinding to that level.

    I’m not the biggest fan of grinding myself, but I do feel a great sense of accomplishment after defeating a boss in a JRPG after grinding away to beat it. Nowadays I don’t have as much time to play games where I have to grind, but I wouldn’t mind doing so in the upcoming Dragon Quest 3DS remakes.

    Great job by Rerez as well. He fit the video perfectly and hope you do more crossovers with the other CA producers.

    Cool that you got Rerez to be in this one and I thought it was a get that masterbated honestly(well though I guess I should become one of these gamera if my game is short and I learn about it on a video)

    Next do if Bernie Sanders were 100percent honest with us 🙂

  3. I only grind in my Pokemon nuzlockes, cause it means life or death for my team if we’re at a type disadvantage. It’s not so bad if it means getting new moves in the process of leveling up, but yes, it is so annoying to grind. x.x

  4. Nice video…but while it had some laughs and described the most extreme cases of grinding, it sort of missed the whole idea of why some people enjoy grinding – in moderation of course.

    In action RPGs like Diablo or Torchlight (and now some shooters like Destiny or Borderlands) , it can be fun to do runs through a particular area to try for better loot drops. While your overall gold and exp gain may be low per run…there is that gambler’s chance that you’ll find a really sweet or rare item that makes it all worth it. It’s like a more engaging version of the lottery.

    Also, in JRPG or strategy games like Pokemon or Shin Megami Tensei, you may have to grind to find rare monsters to catch or harvest in order to refine your awesome team. This is actually fun for people who enjoy the dynamic of roster building and working towards a goal. It can be very satisfying to see your custom team go from idea to awesome unstoppable-ness with a bit of patience and luck.

    So grinding isn’t always a negative…but I’ll totally agree that the idea of leaving your game go for hours to harcest meager resources is pretty extreme and not my idea of fun.

  5. I’ve become a type 2 grinder for MGSV The Phantom Pain…it’s painful ;_;

  6. I think the only games I own that require level grinding is Pokémon. It also wasn’t until I replayed the original Pokémon Red over the past week that I can see how much easier the series has made it to level grind to the point that it doesn’t even seem that bad.

  7. I… *SOMEHOW*… cannot take this seriously. Like, at all.

    Also, claiming ”If you like to ‘grind’, you must have a problem/be a masochist” ? What ? Ok… you just lost any credibility you might have had, before that point… -_-

    Seriously, where was the ‘actual’ content in this video ? It was a bit more than 6min, yet I can sum it up in barely a single sentence.
    Was this a click-bait video or something ?
