    I would argue for Mass Effect and Spore...

    FF XIII had a fun part?

    Go back and try King's Field. I loved those games as a kid, but the entire game is "the slow part".

    played one game on that list and, in no way, did i find the citadel boring. was it gameplay based on combat action? no, but, nobody in their right minds thinks that's the only thing that makes a game fun. well, i guess this articles proves me false, lol.

    I've played half of the games on this list, and I'll confess to having given them up before ever getting to "the fun part." I'm sorry, but part of what a good game is that it is engaging and interesting from the start. FFXIII especially, I didn't make it two or three hours in. Once I heard about the "30 hour tutorial", I tossed it and never looked back.

    Wandering around the Citadel was one of my favourite parts of Mass Effect - such a beautiful and calming environment.

    This article is fake, there is no fun part of FFXIII. Trolls these days, amirite? OT: I was going to say that Skyward's opening wasnt even all that long, but you know what, in hindsight- It was long as fuck. I took a second and really recapped, and yeah, that ish was loooong. As for Spore, the evolution part was the fun part for me. I've never really had much of a taste for Civ or RTS games though (Save Civ Revolution).

    Okami on the Wii allows you to skip cutscenes, including the intro.

    Roxas is the best you be quiet !!!

    I'd like to add Ni No Kuni to this list. You have people who love it and people who hate it, but regardless, the game doesn't stop holding your hand through repetitive tutorials for probably three hours or so. If it weren't for the beautiful world, usually great battle system, and whimsical music, I'd have never stuck with it. Even after beating it I have a love/hate relationship with that game. I only liked one character, and the game never stopped reminding you how to play it, even after 50 hours in. If you want a game that treats you like a child and took forever to pick up the pace, that was it!

    It takes, what, six hours to get to a point where you can actually start capturing monsters--which of course is one of the game's major selling points. I really liked it, but yeah, that story unfolds like molasses.
  • Galaxy010 - August 22, 2014 7:38 a.m.

    The hardest part about convincing people to play the Greatest Game of All Time aka Okami is that the first hour or two is a real slog. At least it gets going nicely after that.
  • TheGreyWizard - August 22, 2014 6:25 a.m.

    Wait. There's a fun part in FF13?
  • mafyooz - August 23, 2014 9:45 a.m.

    If there is I never found it, I ended up trading it for Demon's Souls and have never regretted that decision ;)
  • GenderBender_9000 - August 24, 2014 10:24 a.m.

    I put twenty hours in that game and never found it.
  • bigwill1221 - August 23, 2014 10:22 p.m.

    The trolling be strong.
  • Outofmanyone - August 25, 2014 3:55 p.m.

    I thought the Titan Trials were fun.. Granted that's AFTER you complete the story mode but I actually had a fun time with it. I went ahead and got Platinum as well.
  • winner2 - August 22, 2014 5:41 a.m.

    Now I know I can't be the only one who adored every minute of P4 intro included. I call bullshit on its inclusion here.
  • supergiraffe - August 22, 2014 3:30 p.m.

    Honestly, it's not even the longest stretch without a dungeon in the game. I can see why you'd be turned off by the long intro, but if you have a hard time with it, then you're probably not making it to the end. It's the kind of thing that lets a player know if the game is for them or not right from the start.
  • TanookiMan - August 25, 2014 7:01 a.m.

    Trying to play Persona 4 has become an annual thing for me. I start it up, make it through the TV world place and get a couple personas...but then just stop. My friends keep telling me it's awesome so I keep trying, but now the overly long intro is really starting to get frustrating. I might have to finally give up.
