To Grind or Not to Grind, That is the Question

Brash Games writes "To paint a picture of my current predicament; I’ve always enjoyed JRPGs, but have never been the biggest fan of grinding. Be it Lost Odyssey, Final Fantasy VI or anything inbetween, I usually have a pretty good gauge on what is expected and how many battles I will need to plough through so that I can actually finish the game…..or so I thought". (Final Fantasy, Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy XIII-2, JRPG, PS3, Xbox 360)

Always grind it may get boring but the pay of is good cause once you have( not just beat but) destroyed the final boss it's less time consuming doing the extra bits.

Am maxed out on 13-2 to use a recent example so currently plowing through the paradox endings.

Same went for ff 8 fighting omega and stuff was much more bearable because I pre-grinded.

I also think if you grind you can focus on the story better as you don't have to waste time levelling here and there.

Grinding for side missions and optional boss fights as well as a boss during the story ONCE in a while, maybe 3-4 times the whole game.
