Down with "grinding" in games! My least favorite activity in a game is mindlessly clicking and collecting. You won't catch me playing Cow Clicker or any of its imitators. I'd prefer a challenge.

Off the Internet, my least favorite grinding games are the ones where you have to go around to the booths at a trade show to collect stamps. Where's the play value in that?
