However I have the attention span of a goldfish. This makes the great levels of patience needed in the early few hours of nearly every RPG very difficult to bear. So many of them require saintly levels of patience in order to get through the plodding pace of the prologue and reach the real meat of the game and its story. I don't blame those who don't manage it. As much as I absolutely love RPGs I can see why those with limited free-time due to real life commitments don't persevere. Half Minute Hero does away with all the delayed gratification, providing instant thrills and a game where plenty can be accomplished in a very short period of time: 30 seconds funnily enough."
