Listening to Jeff and Dan talk about playing the game on the bombcast makes it clear, the length of the game has nothing to do with its score, and everything to do with the quality of the story/gameplay.
I was 7 years old when my Dad bought my FFVII, I literally had no idea what i was doing at first but eventually after many a full start over got my shit together, which looking back I'm impressed with myself (despite pronouncing Shinra as Shine-Rah).
I made it to the third Disc by the time I was like 10 and felt so proud! My brother who is a couple years younger decided to erase that save to save his progress in Crash Nitro Racing........ God damn it. It hurts even now.
@alwaysbebombing: But if you remember Patrick was the one that broke the news that MS was walking back all of its DRM/Always online policies, News on this site has been good in the past and hopefully will continue that way in the future.
