Xenoblade Chronicles X is a massive game -- and one I am still not even close to finishing. However, with over 70 hours of gameplay under my belt, I think I am finally ready to tell you what this game is all about.

I've spent a lot of time in the sprawling open world of Xenoblade Chronicles X, doing quests and just exploring. And given how much time I've spent running, that got me to wondering just how large the main continent was.
Then I promptly broke it. In a lot of ways, Xenoblade Chronicles X is a bit of a slog. Main story quests are few and far between -- and you'll need to level up before attempting each one. So when you're not aimlessly exploring (which, don't get me wrong, is by far the most enjoyable part of the game), you'll more often than not find yourself doing gathering/killing quests or simply grinding levels by massacring the local wildlife.
I had no idea how much I wanted an RPG to let me do this until now. Xenoblade Chronicles X is not an easy game to navigate. It is simply massive and can take hours to run across. More than that, even with waypoints, it's common to find an unclimbable mountain or area full of high-level monsters between you and where you want to go.
