DS1? Long? Hell no!. thats a 10-12hour game max. DS3 is around 15-20hours and even then i wouldn't really call that long, maybe above average for that type of game, atleast in comparison to most rpg's.
Not so much. Just took me a bit longer than most because I kept walking with my gun drawn and down the sight instead of running everywhere LOL only because I kept thinking something was gonna pop out around the corner. Just got some birthday money so DS3 is a soon to be purchased! Can't wait!
