Re: Post here when you beat a game. I mean it!
Agreed Brad. This is kinda OT, but the demo discussion reminds me of the Blue Dragon demo, which was a major storyline dungeon from approximately 3/4ths into the game. Aside from being completely out of context and huge, when my brother did get to that part of the game, his only thought was "not this again".
I don't know what's so hard about using an early portion of a game for a demo, or hell, using a modified segment specifically for a demo (Sly Cooper did it, though I can't remember any others).
