Top 10 Most Complex and Involved Games

GameDynamo - "These are the beastly games that take hours, days, even months to complete! I'll leave out open-ended games that by nature have no ending, like MMORPGs, social games, and Minecraft." (3DS, Civilization, Final Fantasy XII, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, PC, PS2, PS3, PSP, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Wii, Xbox 360)

some of that list is pretty bad, but other parts I agree 100%. But my list would turn into an old school pc game list with some dragon quest.

@kevnb Yeah I've never heard of several titles on that list, but I know what he means by the Civ series. I was addicted to those, but after several hours of Civ3 I would feel physically out of breath and exhausted :P

Persona 3 - Yes.
Civ - Yes.

Would've liked to have played Romance of the Three Kingdoms.

Demon's Souls is a very complex game not on the list... with the pure white and pure black tenancies, it makes playing and finding/using the appropriate items complex. Plus the rarity of some items and how they are made, who you kill and keep alive, etc. Demon's Souls is pretty damn complex.

Some racing games are pretty complex too... especially Gran Turismo 5. There are so many upgrades and settings, and not properly setting up the car can mean a win or a loss.

i dunno, demons souls is awesome and has good combat. But I dont think its one of the most complex games of all time, part of its charm is its simple mechanics. However it does have a lot of depth and items to find.

When I think of complex I think of games like total war, eve online, civ and the original deus ex.

This list is mostly crap.

Persona and Civ I'll give you. but what about Demons/Dark Souls?

Skyrim is shallow, forge daggers until you level up, then forge potions until you level up, that is more boring then anything.

Also, I like Zelda, but how is it complex? It is fun, but not complicated at ALL.

And how the HELL did Batman get on that list? Fun combat, yes. But far from deep... Devil May Cry 3 had deep combat, Batman is a shallow beat 'em up, nothing more.

Hey @LordMe, @guitarded77, and @Lord_Sloth, I haven't played Demon's/Dark Souls, but will have that on my to-play list. I've heard of it, seen it, but haven't had the chance to play it. Now, I will make it a must-play immediately

I see no mention of Demon's/Dark Souls, Armored Core, or Monster Hunter on this list and you should remove about half of the titles you included.

This list is really really bad. It's like this guy doesn't understand what complex or involved means.

wind waker is probably the most complex of the zelda games and even though it isn't very complex
