The following is a script for a Youtube video on Grind as gameplay:
Hello I’m Kinglink Let’s talk about grind as gameplay. But really today I wanted to talk about something that bothers me, grindy games.
For the video, I’ll be showing a couple of games here of a certain genre. I’ll start with one of the most famous games. Cookie Clicker, we’ll also take a look at Clicker Hero, Realm Grinder, and my new… pseudo favorite game, NGU Idle. These are all of the genre “Incremental games” or Idle games, both names fit all of them. I will talk about them in a bit. But if there is one thing this genre is known for it is grinding. I’m going to put that aside though. (spoiler I do like these games and the genre as a whole)
