atilaa commented on Fallout 4's leveling system is going deep:
if i remember correctly, which i might not, didn't they say that they removed the skill system to make leveling easier and more graspable for new and casual players? from what is written above, this new system seems to be more confusing than the old one was, which wasn't confusing at all.
i also hope that Fallout 4 won't rely too much on grinding to make the player powerful or even able to pass the story quests, it is easy to make it so that grinding becomes mandatory and not just an option which might take away the fun for many. grinding is for MMOs and Tony Hawk games, not for enjoyable single player games.
