Final Fantasy games are not short. So while big titles from other developers might be clocking in at somewhere between 7 and 9 hours, don't expect a brief Final Fantasy XIII experience. Expect a long haul.

In a recent interview, FFXIII director Motomu Toriyama noted, "For XIII, the size of the entire game is considerable. Just running through the main story takes experienced players over 50 hours. For the first time, I think it's possible to play through in full in about 60 hours or so."

Meaty! Players have been waiting three years for this game, and it sounds like they've got a big game ahead of them to experience.

So far, the JRPG from this generation to beat in terms of content has been Tales of Vesperia, with Star Ocean coming in a very close second, and Last Remnant just beyond.

I've officially put more time into Vesperia than any other RPG I've ever played, and Vesperia's main story can be completed in fifteen hours (there's an achievement for it, too!)

Contrast this with Final Fantasy XII, which could be completed in maybe thirty hours, and had an extra 100+ hours in extra content.

I expect my time in this game to nearly equal my time in Vesperia, though I don't know if I'll ever exceed it.
