100 Best Level-Grinders Of All-Time

Level-Grinders; Dungeon-Crawlers; Role-Playing Games – whatever you want to call them – they are my (and many other people’s) favourite type of video game.

They allow you to build up your characters via the process of levelling. That is: by gaining experience, which in turn increases your character’s power levels.

Level-Grinders also allow you to hoard virtual items that don’t exist in the real world; accumulate unimaginable wealth in an imaginary world, and solve mysteries while you’re doing it.

Over and over again. For the love of the grind…

So here we go… The 100 Best Level-Grinders Of All-Time

The Elder Scrolls Series, PC

There’s been approximately four years on average, between episodes of The Elder Scrolls series, and we are currently long overdue an announcement on a follow-up to 2011’s Skyrim. It’s been eight years since Skyrim, and three years since the remaster.

Bethesda are surely working on a new instalment of their flagship, single-player RPG, while at the same time faffing around with online and VR versions of TES.

What I want – as do millions of others – is a The Elder Scrolls VI: Worldbeater… A single-player, openworld grind-fest full of scary monsters and magic. Another great adventure into mountains and dungeons!

So what’s it gonna be? This sequel? Where’s it going to be set? What are Bethesda gonna do to top themselves? Who knows?

Here are links to The Elder Scrolls series on The King of Grabs:

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (2011)
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (2006)
The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind (2002)
The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall (1996)
The Elder Scrolls: Arena (1994)

Morrowind, XBox

In my opinion the Morrowind Game of the Year Edition on the XBox is even better than the much-loved PC original, because the controls are more intuitive.

You may scoff, but having played all the Elder Scrolls games to death over the past two decades, and having written about them a lot in many different magazines, I think that qualifies me to override the opinion of someone who hasn’t done any of those things! 😀
