Played it for the first time a few years ago

I didn't know Grinding was a thing people did until then. Like... wow. One of the worst concepts in video games ever. This may seem strange to people who grew up with or love the genre, but, seriously. Grinding can fuck off.

One of the best, most unique games I've ever played, though, with sensibilities that quite mirror some of my own.
