Fire emblem for sure! Ive never played 999 or Zero escape so I dont know.

I know theyre kinda like puzzle/visual novels with good story.

Have you played 999? It's recommended that you play it first, before VLR. 999 will probably take you somewhere between...12-20 hours to complete, I'd say, and VLR will take you between 30-40 to complete. FEA is harder to say. All three are great games and worth playing.

999 and VLR took me about 20-30 hours each to beat. My Fire Emblem playtime is over 100 hours so far, and I haven't even touched Hard or Lunatic yet. If you want a time killer, Fire Emblem is more than long enough.

Everyone says this about these two titles. It kind of turns me off that Id have to track down 999 first before I play VLR, and then Ill still have to get VLR later If I want to play it.

No offense to you and I'm honestly not bashing you, but how have you spent that much time on Normal? I think it would get old dominating map after map.

Anyway, FE is the bigger time sink, but I enjoyed 999 and VLR more.

Theres a lot of reading involved with vlr. I'm not really a fan of fire emblem, but I would recommend it if you liked the demo. I would also like to recommend Etrian Odyssey iv. I've nearly logged 70 hours into it, and I have plenty left to do.

VLR is 50 hours if you put it in auto to hear the voices. FE:A is around maybe 70 hours if you grind for the relationship scenes.

I'm on my third playthrough of Normal. I let a few characters die on my first playthrough and on my second playthrough, I ended up not liking a few of the parent pairings and passed down skills for most of my child characters. I'm taking a little more care in the third time around to set up everyone the way I want them. I didn't want to move on to Hard or Lunatic without having that Normal playthrough that was set up exactly how I wanted it. I know it sounds silly, but it's still fun to me.

Yeah, once I actually start Hard and Lunatic I can easily imagine myself putting 400+ hours into this game.

As a person who's played both, I'd say that Fire Emblem will last you longer than VLR.

Both games are great, but FE is by far a better time burner. But, if you can get 999/played 999, get VLR instead. VLR is great.
