I ended up giving up on Genshin tho, too hard to grind and it definitely doesn't reward you enough for your time (imo).

Same here, plus I'm busy with my academics so I have less time to play genshin.

Imagine playing both Genshin and Honkai star rail, I find the grind relaxing and it helps that the stories are good.

Imagine finding grinding in a video game too difficult. Maybe video games just aren't for you.

Grinding isn't for everyone, and even when you grind a lot it can still feel unrewarding. I'm definitely with juanelric here, Genshin's grinding doesn't feel very rewarding in my opinion as well. There's other games where I feel the grinding is more so rewarding, there's also games that don't require any grinding and those are the most fun games for me.

Also often times one of the hardest parts of grinding in games such as Genshin is keeping up on the constant daily requirements and engagement, which is time consuming, and often I find my time is better spent elsewhere. Plus again there are a wide variety of video games out there, if people don't enjoy grinding they can certainly love video games while avoiding that factor. People are valid for not enjoying grinding, and people that enjoy grinding are also valid.

@thechampionmike95 Genshin Impact is a game where you have to grind for days just to increase a single character's level cap, and then you need even more days to actually level them up, more days to get artifacts for them, more days to level up said artifacts, and even more days for talents. Excuse me if I find it too time consuming for how little it compensates you.

Besides, I've been playing gacha games for years now, I'm used to grinding. What I don't want to get used to is doing the same hand movements so much that my hands hurt.

My problem with Genshin wasn't that I thought it had too much grinding, but that I didn't enjoy it's grinding. Just felt very inconvenient and at odds with the game's actual appeal. And I'm saying this as someone who really enjoys Star Rail
