Re: Post here when you beat a game. I mean it!
Just finished Etrian Odyssey (#1) on DS.
Gotta say, that was a pretty substantial commitment... I wasn't keeping track, but I feel like it was pretty close to the 40-hour mark.
It was kind of weird for me since I played the second one before the first, but both were very good... I was sort of wondering if I would miss the improvements that were made after player feedback, but it wasn't too bad.
I actually liked the story of #1 better, but #2 was a smoother ride (though both are hard as hell).
If you haven't tried either one and you're looking for a pretty old-school RPG experience, you can't lose either way.
