When there's filler in the main story

When I stopped being a spoiled teenager with time and some money.

When you get made to wait until the main story can continue, if the only way you can get me to engage with side stories and missions is by forcibly pausing the main story then I count that as a mark against.

Anything that forces you to grind hours and hours for XP is ultimately a long game. Looking at you Dragon Quest franchise.

Dragon quest 11 is one of the best games Ive played in the last 15 years or so jrpg wise. Theres nothing wrong with a games length. Maybe it just isnt for you.

DQ games normally have a pretty short way to level up quick (metal slime family) but for the main story you generally don't have to even do that. That's just optional boss and sidequest stuff

I prefer my games longer to be honest. I play them but when a game is 8 to 10 hours I feel I want more. Simple solution if a games to long dont play it. Dont try to change the way things are because some of us prefer longer games. O know im not alone. Problem I see is people dont have an attention span these days and need instant gratification. If they cant beat it in a day or two they stop playing. I see it all the time. News flash You dont have to beat a game in 2 days, hell dq11 definitive edition took me 200 hours before I went and finished it. Took me a few months and when I beat it I was extremely satisfied. I play all types of games besides racing and music games. Just let devs do wtf they want and stop trying to sway them.
