According to this guy, Red (and presumably Blue) was too long for him

Of course, this could be a joke review, but from what I remember, Red/Blue were not that long.

No Pokemon games were "that long" or "too long."

Especially up through like Gen 3, where you could fighting everything with your starter and overlevel and win.
I think Gens 4 and 5 started to move away from that a bit, but the first 3 were really easy to run through quickly with only a starter.

He got 4 badges after 18 hours ?, in Red / Blue ? Erina's gym ? That's an award winning achievement I think.

If poke was too long for him, I hope he never tries 80+hours JRPGs

Eh...maybe it was because I played them at 4x speed with Poke stadium..but they didn't seem that long to me <.<

But really you can easily finish them in under 10 hours I always thought Gen 1 was the shortest o.O

If a video game needs to sell more than a million copies to break even it has problems.

Like Magna Carta (the first one for PS2), for instance.

Yeah, no kidding. Most players would have been close to beating the game at that point, if they hadn't already.

As far as I know, Pokémon Stadium only allowed for 3x speed at the most.
