    I've got 138 hours on my first save of Fallout 3 and about 55 on a newer save. I don't know if you consider this an RPG but it's a damn fun game.

    If you're talking about a top down dungeon crawler such as Champions of Norrath for PS2 or Sacred 2 for PS3, I prefer 150+ hours to do everything.

    imo, the length of the game isnt an issue. if the gameplay or story isnt engaging, then i hope its a short game so i can finish it and play something else. however if the game is alot of fun and keeps you coming back, then 120+ hours will just fly by on it.

    I had 99h:99m:99s logged when I played through Final Fantasy VII for the first time, and I still thought it was short.

    40 would be alright. A 100% completion should be upward of 120 hours.

    Fallout 3 is my favorite RPG. I think a good RPG should be at least 60 hours.

    problem with lengthy RPGs is that we gamers that grew up with time to spend on 60+ hours games just don't have the time or attention span to do so anymore. i look at games that i loved like Earthbound, Breath of Fire II, FF3 and such and I just can't bring myself to play them again, as much as i want to. those were games that took...nay, demanded your attention for as long as it took to complete these games in a satisfactory manor.

    tl;dr i'm getting too old to play an RPG properly.

    Depends, like mentioned, is the RPG even have a good storyline to make it worth wasteing 40+ hours? Deathspank is an action rpg (i think, lol) only about 12 hours or more worth of play time (with the first release anyway) and I personally thought the humor made it worth while. I have somewhere around 260+ hours in on Demon's Souls, and the storyline is pretty shallow, but the gameplay is as addicting as it is frustrateing.

    I like free roam rpg's anymore (Fallout 3, Deathspank, Dragon Age (kinda free-roam and linear)), and requiring 35 hours to get into the story then only getting 5 hours of real play time isn't really a game, it's more of an interactive novel that makes you feel like you're in control (like those old books that would give you a decision by page number to turn to), but no mater the decision, you tend to end up in the same place (coughFinalFantasycough).

    But I agree with Cowboycalstar, I grew up on zelda, dragon warrior (aka dragon quest), Final Fantasy, Breath of Fire, etc. And anymore, the format that was a must then is just to much for me now (and it's not that I've lost interest, it's just the same story with slight tweaks in char development and plot, that makes no real diffrence to me). It's funny, I went from platforms and rpg's to Survival Horror and dungeon crawlers, lol.

    I felt Suikoden 3 had the perfect length time at around 60 hours so that's my standard (not that I mind a greater time investment if the content is good of course). 100% completion of Chrono Cross (three playthroughs, all endings), on the other hand, was 40 hours...
