What are some games that you think are hard to level up on?

Here are some that I think that are hard to level up on:
-Phantasy Star
-Fable
-RS (when you achieve higher levels and need more exp. Like going from 98-99 is 6 mil I believe.)

Final Fantasy Tactics Advance. It's not much of a problem up to around level 30, but then you only receive like 1 or 2 exp points per attack, and it takes much longer =\

...

If a design of a game is so flawed that you don't want to play it, why do it in the first place?

The leveling in the Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, seems to be TOO easy. I could easily max out certain stats by just doing remedial tasks over and over again.

Well an entire genre of gaming spawned from difficulty to level up (yay MMO's)...

If a game happens to be that broken in mechanics, you shouldn't play it. Not every MMO is like that.

Ragnarok Online. I think that game has the worst level grinding of all. At the 98-99 grind, it takes hours to gain 1% of experience. And if you die, you lose that 1%.

Most are like that. The most popular ones are like that (see RO, RO2, WoW, etc.). Off the top of my head, I've only thought of 1 MMO that doesn't have any grinding.

I don't see Warcraft's leveling as too bad, but RO does have some bad leveling design.

X- Men Legends seems to take too long.
The enemies are limited in the missions, and then your only option is Danger Room training- which takes FOREVER. Not that the game becomes too difficult because of it but there are stats & powers you want to build up and not being at the top of your abilities is a drag in any RPG.

It isn't that hard to level up in PSO.. I got to 120 pretty quickly.

FFIII took a while for me.

98-99 is 1.3m on rs. 92-99 is like 1-92, which is about 6.5m.

Anyways, Fable is easy to level up on. RS is easy if you know where to train or have the cash. FFX takes forever if you want to max the entire sphere grid with a character(friend did it w/Tidus&Lulu, although Tidus, Rikku and Wakka are the best to do it with cause of the underwater factor).

WoW is fast to level up if you no life. I don't know what the fastest is NOW, but I remember in the past, the fastest I'd seen someone ping 60 was the person who wrote that guide, and she did it in 7 days or so in game time. But yeah. WoW takes awhile to level up. Grinding ftl.

Nobody remembers Legend of Dragoon(PS1)? Damn, it took many an hour to level up a character in their 40s. My God.
