Role-playing games needed to evolve the "grinding" mechanic

Grinding, which is completing a relatively easy task repetitively to gain experience quickly, is on its way out. And this is what role-playing games needed to do. (Chrono Trigger , Culture, Fallout 3, PS3, Retro, Secret of Mana, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Xbox 360)

I disagree I hate finally fantasy as it is lost the leveling system of 1 - 99 which I felt was a good indication.

8 and 9 especially I loved grinding at the start as I felt that I could enjoy the story much more during as i wouldn't have to spend time away from the main plot.

However that is just my opinion on the matter.

Grinding can be good or bad depending on the game.
