To be fair, it's a pretty grindy game!

To be worth it tho means it needs to hold value....

I sometimes enjoy grind. Also, Rogue Legacy is a super underrated game, if you like castlevania and/or roguelikes, give it a shot.

Definitely a great game. I own it on PS3, Vita, and Switch (maybe PS4 too can't remember) . Still haven't beaten it though lol.

In comparison with games like Monster Hunter, Darks Souls is not grindy. You can finish the games in the series without any grind. On the other hand, you will never finish MH World or Iceborne if you don't grind for better armors or weapons. The time limit on hunts and the damage sponge bosses will keep you from progressing.

Agreed. I only recently played Dark Souls (played several other games in the series), and didn't spend any time grinding, yet managed to be so overlevelled that I had no trouble with any boss other than Kalameet.

I think the only way Dark Souls becomes grindy is if you don't level up effectively.

I guess for me who never played them before, it would be a grind to get good (but that doesn't justify its place on this list)

NotoriousWhiz26d ago (Edited 26d ago )

Exactly. Dark souls isn't about grinding for character progression. It's about grinding to gain the skills needed to win. A grind that can take longer than character progression. But yes, definitely not grinding in the traditional sense.

I am sure you're 100% right. But I personally had to grind DS to get around the fact I suck at them. On bloodborne the amount of times I killed those slug students and farm them for xp was embarrassing.

Don't agree with the DS pick
Destiny 1 had awful storytelling, but the amusement park was Interesting.

Fun/Chore shouldn't really mingle that much tbh
