I was just wondering what is the longest RPG on PS2 and how many hours long is the FFX story?

Depends on how obsessive you play them. For instance, leveling to L99 to take down some of those optional bosses usually takes a while. But if you follow only the storyline you can finish most of them in less than 40 hours. Final Fantasy 12 can be beaten in less than 12 hours.

If you're going all the way, levels, optional bosses, all endings, I think MegaTen: Lucifer's Call is longer. There are, let's see, 6 endings, one huge sidequest (needed to get one of the endings) and some other stuff...

FF9 can apparently be completed in 12 hours.
but thats the time limit for the super speedy roadrunner-like speed run which can only be done if you skip the FMV's (by opening and closing the disc tray) and do absolutly no leveling up.

Final Fantasy 12 can be beaten in less than 12 hours.
..
please tell me that was your idea of a horrible joke and you really meant X-2 :(

Runescape never ends ...oh, you said RPG.

Longest: It all depends on how much time you are willing to spend on them.

I personally think FF8 and FF7 were long. Since I spent well over 200+ hours on each. Games like Phantom Brave and Disgaea let you get really high levels (9999, I think). FFX was alright, but let us not speak of FFX-2.

Xenosaga Ep. 1

Hack series (pretend they are all one giant game)

Kingdom Hearts was kinda short IMO.

Star Ocean 3: It was pretty good but once you get the best weps, there really was no point.

Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne was long, but half way through, I just gave up and couldn't play anymore.

Wild Arms series, totally awesome IMO :D

Jade Cocoon: I think it's as long as Legend of Dragoon.

Shortest: Definitely Evolution Worlds. The entire game takes place in one town. The point is that you have to get to the highest level of the dungeon...yes, just one dungeon, to win. I literally beat it in about 10 hours (the Dreamcast version at least), kinda sad...

Anyway, I can't remember many right now, so I'll let you know some other time.

XD I know.
I opened the thread thinking it was new - but when I saw people saying that Omega Phil hadn't finished FFX yet, I knew it must have been old!
I'm surprised more people haven't said Disgaea. To full complete it and kill all the secret bosses like that evil prinny one and to get all your characters upto level 9999 would take hundreds of hours.
I'm also very surprised that so many people have said Final Fantasies...There are many RPGs much longer than them.

CoN! To get 88 level, you must spend 130 - 150 hours! As for FFX, it's not so long if you are walking around the story, to open all secrets and Sphere Grid with each character + get all Aeons and BDL/BHPL/BMPL, you have to play about 150 - 200 hours!

I don't think I posted here first time round but for what it's worth Unlimited Saga is probally the longest RPG I've ever owned. I never completed it (still intend to one day,,,,,,, someday) but each characters quest should take about around 50 hours and there's seven of them. I got the game on the day of it's release and I'm still nowhere near. It's pretty difficult though, well, actually, not realy difficult but just,, requring alot luck so that just makes the game seem even longer as you'll have to keep retrying sections

I had a save on FFX that was about 200 hours but towards the end of that saves life me and a friend actually both played it just swapping memory cards every few days for all the leveling up to face the Dark Aeons. I've probally played through that game 4 or 5 times though so in total I guess the hours must be near 1000 on all saves :shame:

Purely through my own playtime I've got a save on Jade Cocoon 2 that's just about 150 hours if I recall correctly but long live the great RPG MGO*. I think I had about 1000 hours on that

Not all that 'hardcore' compared to some of the other posts. Kung, 400 hours :eek: :gr8::)

Does anyone remember Omega Weapon (the guy) from the olden days. I think he deals with Hentai porn nowadays (genuinely).

Anyway he always insisted on COMPLETELY completing every FF. And I don't mean completely completeing like I did. I mean he had to have the maximum number possible of every item. Totally maxed out stats. etc.

Now it took him several hundred hours to achieve this in FF7. FF8 he never finished properly.

But his main task was FFX (which has the potential to be HUUUGGGGEEE). He spent something like 800 hours on it in the end and barely scratched the surface.

Thats dedication.

The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall is probably the longest RPG. It's not turn based though :)

I would have to say FFX, although saying that i haven't completed many others. I have about 250 hours of gametime on there, arguably about 50 was spent on pause. My brother added a further 100 hours (in two weeks as well) on blitzball. So the total is close to 350. And i never even got to beat any dark aeons on that save, but i did get Tidus' celestial weapon fully released and do the 200 lightning bolts dodging for Lulu's sigil. Surely the longest rpg would have to be an mmo what with their low experience gain and constant updates.
