@SoldierG654342: As a clarification, you basically just level up your class by using it. Even default attacks work. Honestly, when compared to the massive grind that some of FFV was, it's a step up. I know what you mean though. My personal offender in this regard is Lord of the Rings: The Third Age, a game that literally no one remembers besides me, but basically it was a western attempt at making the single most boilerplate JRPG ever with a skill system that forced you to cast the same spells and use the same abilities. Over. And. Over. Wow. Thinking back, I could probably write a really good criticism of that game now if I played it again, based on what I remember.
Fuck...The Third Age...The second worst game I've played to completion. That game single handedly killed my desire to ever play a turn-based RPG ever again. As much as I would love to hear someone tear that game a new asshole, I would never ask someone to subject them self to it for a second time.
The Witch King never died! I'm convinced he just decayed because the battle took so goddamn long.
