    made a mistake by not looking up how long P3 is. God fricking damn, I just want it to end already but im pretty sure there is still at least 2 more months

    That should be a good thing, the longer the game the better isn't it? You won't pay current market price for less than 4 hours of gameplay.

      I'd much rather play a 10 hour game where all 10 hours spent are fun than a 140 hour game where 4 hours spent are fun.

      I won't pay current market price for a 100 hour game, either. Increased game length is mostly a disqualifying factor for me. But I'm also generally not willing to spend more than $40 on a game.

    I like them but this is my biggest problem with the genre. Even worse, the closer you get to the end the more padding they throw at you.

      There's a big difference between a game that's long because it gives you a variety of events and battles to deal with and the average jrpg slog that just throws random encounters and babble at you so you reach their arbitrary 40-50 hour mark no matter what.

        I don't see a problem with both scenarios you gave. They used to be like that for many decades and just now people are complaining about that. Maybe that's not the type of game you're looking for.

          You are right, but I always had this problem. It's annoying because I often find myself really enjoying the games but struggle to finish them.

          For what it's worth, Valkyrie Profile 2 is my favourite and I can see myself replaying it again soon.

          the only one i felt being a chore was persona 3 FES, mostly because of the outdated gameplay, every other persona game was fun, hell i even played through persona 5 twice and then jumped right into the Shin Megami Tensei series after. pretty sure you just don't like the gameplay.

          You've played Strange Journey, right? I finished that one and loved it but I was just begging it to end by the time I got to the final 5 hours.

    It's not about length, but they are overstretching.

      You did not. It takes ~60 hours to 100% the game.

      The game is fine. Not even too long. It's just that all the information is condensed at the end.

      That fricking space baby creature made part of my soul die, because I didn't catch that you could dissipate the darkness shielding it with the sword, and instead grinded for so fricking long to beat it the hard way.

    As much as I love it, Ys VIII.

      This is a huge part of why the older Ys games are more fun for me. They're bite sized adventures.

    As it turned out I dropped it right before the hallway to the final boss. I was just that bored with it. I don't think I've seen the ending to this day.
