Quick question about game length

#1Kirbyfreak411Posted 6/14/2010 5:00:28 PM
I recently bought this game and I still clearly remember a friend of mine describing the time it takes to beat this game as... til the end of time.
Obviously a pun and exaggeration, but is it somewhat accurate to say so?
Basically, does it really take an unholy, long amount of time to play through this entire game?

Only if you want to obtain all 300 Battle Trophies.

If you go for all 300 Battle Trophies and extensive IC then you're looking at well over 100 hours.

If you only care about the maingame and do no optional dungeons, it could take you around 25-30 hours... I think my last save did it in a little bit shorter time. Also, you can just skip the extremely long cutscenes. Or all of them. I did.

Vaan, are you talking about the main game or the main game and post-game?

I'm still doing main game.

In this latest play-through I got all the inventors possible as I went through (creating the items for them etc.)
And also made a couple of weapons with Att+500 x8 on them as soon as I got Misty Lear. Literally ran back out as I picked up the Spirit Stone, picking her up on the way out. (I'd grinded with bonus gauge to 500k Fol earlier)

Near the end as soon as I could get Chilico I went straight ahead and spent a few hours saving and resetting and making Veinslay and Mythril Gauntlets with 8 x BoP synthed to them. Plus four extra BoP's for accessories.
This obviously at some point involved also crafting the Celestial Homonculi to make gil, and also do crafting mats, and synthesis mats runs to restock from the usual places. (Kirlsa Facility and Sphere respectively)

Finished the game with 60 straight hours on the clock.
Be a fish....

Speedrun main game- 25-40 hours

Normal run through main game- 60 hours

Main game + Freya - 100 hours

Get all 300 trophies- 400 hours

Pick which one you want.
