So then you're done with playing every single online game ever created?

No... because not every online game ever created is a grind. Many such online games can be enjoyed simply for the competition against other opponents. The opposite of grinding for the sake of grinding.

I play a lot of RPGs, and I hate the grinding / farming. However, the story, the world, and the music often make up for it - sometimes only just about though.

I agree. I hate when grinding feels like a grind. It really comes down to the combat system. If I find it genuinely interesting I tend to grind often. But sometimes only a great storyline can save the repetition of the grind. Hell I put Persona 5 on easy after 70 hours because I couldn’t stand the grind anymore. That’s not to say that I don’t enjoy the combat, but the dungeon crawling(to me) is secondary to the social aspects and the story.

True that a lot of RPGs have a built-in grind to them if the player chooses to take that route.

I actually liked grinding in RDR. The gang hideouts, the challenges, and especially having a friend helps too.

There is different types of grind. You can’t just say you are done with grind. That’s like saying I am done with fruit so there should be no more fruit. You have multiplayer grind...rpg grind...achievement grind...rank grind...there is just so much types of grind that it can’t just be taken away.

Be more specific on what grind you hate...then maybe you will learn not to buy those games. Just like learning what fruit you hate and then learning to get rid of hat fruit.
