    Rate Your Commitment to Fighting

    I'm a frequent fighter but definately not uber committed. I'm almost an occassional fun fighter, and when I first started, was definately a run through fighting as little as possible player.

    I think I thought I'd have to conserve all my resources at first, but eventually figured out you can get more, and the experience is worth the time and effort, although I purely believe that fighting too much ruins the experience as all of the major battles become easy if you're leveled beyond them, and it just feels like a serious waste of time anyway. But I do love to fight some, esspecially some tougher enemies you have to strategize a tad for.

    I'm a lover not a fighter.

    But I seriously don't know what you are talking about. Care to elaborate?

Even got a rePETEr (<---- like that ay? AYYYYY?) on the back burner.

    Block: I do like the rePETEr except it kinda makes it sound like you're going to pork Pete. No homo.

    Re: Rate Your Commitment to Fighting

    Rocky is always quick on the draw, he shoots before Han Solo.

    Anyway, I do believe that too much fighting can not only make a game boring, but can completly ruin the game for you.

    If I just fight random encounters repeatedly, I have to make up some kind of story to get through it all. (I do sometimes find that entertaining though. Example: I had Basch as a guest and was just leveling Vann, while fighting endless hordes of wolfs in the desert, I pretended that Vann was actually Basch's long lost son who had wandered off into the desert. He was then attacked by Basch's best friend who died in the battle at Nabudis. It was actually a rare game skeloten I saw in the westersand. )

    Anyway, too much fighting can make me not want to ever pick the game up again. I will eventually go back, but for now I can't play FFX...I simply leveled up too much.

    I'm one to fight frequently but not constantly. I honestly do not have the patience for grinding. As long as I've fought enough to get through the next boss without too many problems, I'm good.

    Re: Rate Your Commitment to Fighting

    I like being prepared for bosses. Sometimes I'll grind for the fun of it, but most of the time I just run straight towards my destination. I don't really run from random encounters unless the battle isn't going my way, but that's very rare.

    Re: Rate Your Commitment to Fighting

    I do it for the story. Plus it makes me feel mo balla when I don't grind constantly and I can still advance through the game.

    I stream Bloodborne, FFXIV, and occasionally other games.

    Re: Rate Your Commitment to Fighting

    Well when I get to a new area, I LOVE to test out my abilities on all the new monsters, plus, new monsters make me Masturba-meditate on how cool they look.

    But if the difficulty outweighs, I just try to advance. I'm looking at you 5th arc(FF13).

    Or, if the story is funner than the gameplay, then i play to see the next cutscene.

    Your pathetic existence will shut down. I will make your lives end in ruin. Fear me, as you fear death. Not a threat, not a promise, but what must be finished. 7 final arcs...

    Re: Rate Your Commitment to Fighting

    I like grinding in FFVII,VIII and XII but that's pretty much it.
    I do grind in all rpg games i really like and am mastering, am in it for the storyline and music mostly though.
    But the feel of the game and fast paced battle mode is what drives me somewhat too.

    Re: Rate Your Commitment to Fighting

    Wow, i'm the only one that voted as grinding my ass off

    I agree, grinding and max-ing everything does make the game hair-pullingly boring, but I always make sure i play through the game once first, to get the storyline and basic ideas of the game, to master the battle system, get an idea for secrets and side-quests etc. Then once i finish my first playthrough i start again, making sure i get EVERYTHING i can possibly get, and max out, fight and grind my little booty off xP
