Forums - Sony Discussion - They said 60 hours, I beat it in 35-the biggest problem of Final Fantasy 13

We have have the same issue...... FFXlll is broken down into 3 pieces, Story,characters and battle's......., theres really no gameplay. somebody wraped FFXlll up perfectly thay said " FFXlll is the equivalent to RPG on rails" that is sooo true. There just was not enough meat on FFXlll

Took me 60 hours 14 minutes - was my time after i beat the end boss. Although I did spend tons of time grinding money and mobs

Right now im at 87 hours 54 minutes - time it took me to get 840/1000G (33/35). I will not be going for 5 stars on every cieth stone quest nor aquire every accessory.

 

And you're right, this FF is uber barebones. Add that on top of the linearity, no towns, and super AWFUL story with no plot and its one heck of a below-average JRPG...

and yet you spend almost 88 hours with it. You must really like Final Fantansy games.

lol youre right :) I like these types of games. Aside from quite a few disappointments I had with the game, I think it was worth the play. And the fact that im an achievement whore really helped me do a ton of extra stuff too.



Meh, length in jrpgs is overrated. Quality > Quantity. Often times, long jrpgs feel like they have a lot of filler content and I get long bored of them before the game ends. I don't know how anyone can complain that 35 hours of content is too short. That's still a lot of bang for your buck. About $2 for every hour of entertainment. I'd much rather 35 entertaining hours over 60 hours of diluted quality. That is not to say that FF13 is entertaining. I wouldn't know. Haven't played it yet. Will get around to it eventually. The plan was to rent FF13 this month but the whole rental queue thing screwed me over so I gotta wait awhile until there's a copy available to rent (not that I'm in a rush to play FF13). I certaintly am not buying this as jrpgs are pretty hit or miss with me these days.



I am at 102hours



I finished at 44 hours

now going back to pulse

But since I ALWAYS skipped the annoying & boring minigames in all other FF's (blitzball being the worst thing ever made) I have no issues with the time.

How would you like to be chopped up? In pieces or in Sushi? :P

I agree on the blitzball comment. The only mini games I think I played and enjoyed were in Suikoden.



 

the biggest problem with FFXIII is that the gameplay just seems like a chore you have to do in between the cut scenes. the RPG genre is known for having a long story with a ton of great gameplay. RPGs need side quests and A WORLD MAP! FFX is the only one that got away with having no map to explore



You skipped all of the sidequests and it still took you 35 hours. Sounds like a good deal imo.
