What percent of your RPG's do you finish?

Am I the only one who has trouble finishing RPGs?

I really do enjoy them but some of them are just way too long. I feel like 20-40 hours is acceptable, but more than that is just excessive unless it's an awesome game. I probably only complete about 10-20% of my RPGs because I can't find the time to play them, and they're not easy to just pick up and play whenever either. Sometimes I buy an RPG and can't even get into it because I know I still have about 100 hours ahead of me. Do you wish they were shorter?

Me. So I kinda just have stopped buying them. :/ It's not like there aren't other games out there.

I finish almost all of them, and no I don't wish they were shorter instead I wish they were longer to be honest (the average 30 hour ones I mean). I don't buy a whole bunch of games at once so my time is just focused on the one game, so it doesn't matter if it's a long game unless I don't like it and is why I originally said almost all.

I beat all of them, sometimes even years later(like a couple PS2 ones do to my memory car corrupting multiple times). Yes they can take a long time if you can't get a lot of hours but the only ones that take me more 50+ hours are the ones with a good post game, new game plus+, or is really just a long game. Plus games that I actually do a lot of side quest in.

Actually what games have you played that take 100 hours with just a straight play though?
The internet, where common sense is a monumental achievement

Persona 3 & 4, Dragon Quest VIII, and Tales of the Abyss all took me about 100 hours the first time through and I didn't even do everything.

Well I technically didn't beat skies of Arcadia, I just did every side quest and maxed my characters' levels then quit right before the last boss because I didn't want to see the ending.

That game made me so slash ficish!

I swore off Illusion of Gaia forever when I was 8 because Mu made me so made I actually broke a controller.

Gave away Super Paper Mario, and didn't finish Makai Kingdom before I gave it to someone who deserved it more than me.

I'm still working through last story.

Other than that I've beaten every RPG I've ever owned and 100% most of them.

Off the top of my head:
FF1, 4,5,6, chrono trigger, earthbound, Mother 3, Legend of Mana, Wildarms 1,2,3,4,5, altercode F, Lunar Silver star story, Lunar 2, Shining in the Darkness, Shining Force 1, 2, Phantom Brave, Super Mario RPG, Pokemon Blue, Gold, Black.

So 23/28 makes 82.14%, but its probably higher than that because I'm sure I forgot some.

I finish all of them, I don't always get around to 100% completion though, especially if it takes a long time.

I sold White 2 before I finished as it never really captured my interest like B/W did, and I started on Disgaea 3 a couple months ago before seeing the massive list of DLC and decided I'd just grab the Vita version when the price went down.
