I just beat Leon's campaign in Resident Evil 2. My official time was 8 hours plus I spent some time reloading saves lol. And I do plan on playing Claire's campaign at some point. But that got me thinking... I like games that can be beaten within a weekend. Maybe not all the time, but it helps mix things up. And if done right, you get a quality experience without unnecessary filler. So what are your favorite games that can be beaten under 10 hours, SW? The Resident Evil games are good examples. I will also throw in my favorite game, Metal Gear Solid.

Well the most recent one for me would be Resident Evil 2 Remake but a few other games off the top of my head would be:

- Resident Evil Remake

- Contra III: The Alien Wars

- Super Castlevania IV

- Final Fight

- Sparkster

- Mega Man X

- Mega Man 2

- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Arcade Game

Max payne 1. 6 hour game but so much better than 600 hours open world RPG. Shows quality over quantity.

Day if the tentacle. Can be beaten in under 30 minutes but it normally 10-20 hours because it's really hard.

I can't get past the second level in Contra Hard Corps. The game is hard as nails. I have Gunstar Heroes but I haven't played it yet. Been thinking about picking up one of those Sega Genesis remake consoles by analogue. I have about 50 genesis games.

Yeah, it's pretty hard, especially since the western version has limited continues. Gunstar Heroes is much easier (and more fun too, imo).

If you're into oldschool then most of your favorite games can likely be beat in less than 10 hours.

You obviously haven't played any of these games, Nintendo troll. Spiderman can take up to 30 hours. I also doubt you're beating Infamous: Second Son in under 10 hours. Nice try, though

Not including cutscene time, MGS1-4 can all be beaten in 4 hours on average for most people. I know speed runs exist where some people breeze though them in like 90 minutes, but that’s hardcore lol

That makes the MGS franchise sound so freaking bad.

Streets of Rage series

Double Dragon

Super Double Dragon

Contra

That's about it. I prefer longer games that I can get my moneys worth from.

@KBFloYd: how many hours did you spend playing Nintendo’s google cardboard competitor before you realized it was dogshit?

7hours?
