    QotW: For shorter RPGs, I’d have to give a shout out to Supergiant Games for Bastion and Transistor, which are both wonderfully stylish. Top of mind for me, though, seeing as I just finished it, would be Cosmic Star Heroine. Fun story, properly challenging and interesting combat (on the Heroine difficulty level) and no grinding required. I didn’t even need to have an alien cat named after me, and I still loved it!

    I tried that Trails of Cold Steel 3 demo on Switch and I felt so lost and confused (both story and mechanics). Then again, the last, and only, Legend of Heroes game I played was Trails in the Sky first chapter years ago, which I loved. Meant to get to Second Chapter but have been busy 😅

    QOTW: That 20 hours or less criteria really had me scratching my head, but then I got it! Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII! I borrowed the game from my bro, so I didn’t have time to 100% complete it. But by crit pathing the game I rolled credits at a clock in time of just over 17 hours. That game is amazing and one I really really wish Square would release from it’s PSP prison. If they announced a Switch port I’d buy it so fast and probably buy it for all my close friends and family who I also know have Switched as well out of hype/excitement!

  4. QoTW: Even if a game is supposed to take 20 hours, I have the uncanny ability to spend way more time on a game than is necessary.
    One game I do like that is short and that I actually did finish in that time is Crimson Shroud, that 3DS eShop title written by Matsuno. It’s a really neat game. I quite like its tabletop RPG aesthetics and the text is written like a fantasy novel. One playthrough is about ten hours. You have to play it twice to get the good ending, but even then, it takes about 15-20 hours or so.

    I’m playing Persona 2: Innocent Sin (Sony PSP) for JRPG July. I wished for that game to be released in the US, and then it was. It’s time to finally experience what I wished for.

    Undertale is my favorite short RPG. It’s just that memorable, groundbreaking, and fun.

    The shortest game I played was Y’s the Ark of Napishtim. When I beat it I was truly stoked at how short it was.
