These days every game under the sun has 'Energy'! Then when you use it all you have to wait 5 minutes to get one back -_-

Anybody know any good games where you can just grind for hours on it?

I love grinding in Half Minute Hero because you literally just wander around in a circle for a few seconds and watch as your hero fights and levels up and shit for you.

Realm of the Mad god has some pretty decent grinding.

First you grind to get to level 20 and you die a lot. Then once you can stay at level 20 for some time you end up grinding a lot to get pot drops to increase stats. As well you grind a lot to get gear since all gear is luck based(unless you get into the trading aspect of the game).

Not a bad game, played it for a long time, then Kabam came along and started to slowly fuck it up.

Also it's F2P.

Your kidding right?

As for the rest; realm of the mad god is alright. But i'm lookin for a proper addictive game you could lose hours in! Maybe one like a social networking one; just without the fucking energy!

Elder Scrolls game lack any real grinding to get what you want, you just need to stumble across ridiculously overpowered gear and stupidly expensive things to vendor and just buy whatever training you want. I once stumbled across a tree stump in Bloodmoon which contained a stash of arrows empowered to deal 5000 bonus damage which basically 1 or half shot the most powerful stuff in the game. That pretty much made stuff even more faceroll.

And of course you could always just use the terminal in game with a simple press of the key and get anything you wanted in a matter of seconds if you were not the type to actually enjoy the adventure and exploration of a game to find it's riches.

Well that's mostly in Morrowind.

In Oblivion they took that out by making enemies and gear level up with you, so you couldn't get any powerful gear until you reached the higher levels. This system does still make grinding fairly pointless though, unless you do it somewhat efficiently. But anyway, I would agree that in the Elder Scroll series gear seems to be much more important than stats when it comes to combat.

Still, if you want a game in which you can invest lots of time grinding skills/levels then Morrowind, Oblivion and Skryim are good choices.

Not even when you lower the settings? I got a pretty shitty laptop myself but it can handle TF2 if I lower the settings (it'll still lag a bit sometimes though).

I suppose Skyrim fits the ticket. That game involves quite a lot of grinding and so on.

Realm of the Mad God is browser based. I think Runescape is to.

As well I haven't played it but I heard NEStalgia is a fun(free) game and it requires grinding for better gear.

Try any console game with a leveling system. Even fucking Call of Duty lets you grind for XP.

Cladun: This is an RPG and Cladun x2 are excellent grinding games. You can always reliably make progress, even though you can also always dive right into the real action, too.

Apparently most games by Nippon Ichi feature level grinding. Disgaea is supposed to have a lot, too.

Final Fantasy XIII. Once you get to the "spot", you pretty much need to to continue.

On the console, there are games that don't have energy, for example, there is Tales of Vesperia where you can fight monsters for hours on end and still have energy, as long as you don't die.

What's wrong with that? You asked for games with grinding and Runescape has some serious grinding in it.

You could also try dungeon defenders.
