Have you ever beaten a JRPG without a guide and how long did it take you?

Yes. I don't know how long they take, I didn't time them and lots of them were years ago.

I recently completed and platinumed Ni no Kuni without a guide, just two or three hints about fast farming here on gamefaqs. 191 hours for 100% completion also for the progress report.
The same happened for FFXIII-2. 145 hours.
I used to play JRPG with guides when I was younger (till 13-14 yo). Now I avoid them like the plague.

All the jrpgs ive played?

For that matter, all my first playthroughs, no matter what genre of game we are talking about, are done without looking at a guide, i kinda thought that would be the norm....


Ill look at one after im done with the game and if it has multiple endings or something, thats all.

If you fell for it, it isn't cheap. It is just something that works on you. Adapt.. Or curl up in the fetal position, your call.

FF 13 don't count.


why doesn't it count? there's lot of things in the game where a guide is useful

FF7, and about a week. My brother and I played the crap out of it since we got it for Christmas that year, beat it before we went back to school after New Year's.

Many, however my last one and the only I can remember, was FFXIII...

Technically Dark Soul was my last JRPG played, but I cheated
