It's something of a pet peeve of mine, and I've heard it from others many a time. I'm focusing on a specific point this time around though. Not on overall load times, but the sheer amount of time it take to get from launching the game disc to the title screen, and from there to actually playing the game. I ran an experiment with a few games and you can see the results in the table at the end of the article."
