One of the things my gf is getting me for Christmas is a new DS game, and I'm in the market for an RPG (or similar) game; something fairly involved that will take me a while to beat. *But* I am looking for one that is suitable for short, 20-45 minute gameplay chunks. I don't have a ton of time for gaming, and I mainly play on public transit or in bed at night.
I've never played a MegaTen game before, and all of the reviews for this game have been really positive. This is the game I think I want the most as of right now. I know the game is deep and involved, which I want, but I am hoping it is playable in short chunks. Like, I loved Fallout 3 for 360, but that was a game where you could literally never get anything done unless you played for 2+ hours in a sitting.
If MegaTen DS is not a good RPG to meet my criteria, does anybody have any recommendations? I'm not really feeling Pokemon these days (so no Platinum), or any of the remakes/rereleases (i.e. the FF or DQ games... although I suppose if DQ V fit my criteria I could play that); other than that, I'm happy with any suggestions that people may have. Thanks for your help!
