    I'm looking for a really good RPG, something that will take a good long time to beat. Looking for more than 20 hours. I've already played TWEWY, and it was awesome. Please suggest some really good, long RPGs.

    Etrian Odyssey.

    I've been playing for about 20-30 hours and I'm only just over halfway through.

    It's pretty hard, but if you can get into it you'll get addicted.

    I recommend you the Mario & Luigi game for DS. It's a great game though a bit short.

    If you want a true RPG game, try Final Fantasy III (though you've probably played this before). In the meanwhile, wait for FF4.

    Soma Bringer
    Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Ring of Fates
    tales of innocence

    basically my favorite 3, but you need translations for ToI and Soma bringer.

    Etrian Odissey. It's really good, and hard! One of the best RPG for NDS. [​IMG]

    Soma Bringer and Tales of Innocence are both Japan exclusives, but they have pretty good trans patches, check the Rom Hacking discussion to find them.

    Soma Bringer is very good and customizable, you choose a class and can use 3 different kinds of weapons which come in many different kinds. You also get skills for those weapons so you can string together combos. Battles are on the same field and are fully real-time, a very fun and deep game.

    Tales is harder because there is less of it translated, but battles in it are very fun.

    Dragon Quest IV comes right after The World Ends With You in my list, too bad it's still only available in japanese and "engrish", unless you wait until September.

    Having said that, I highly reccomend Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings. By no means a usual role-playing game, but great nonetheless.

    i think it can be more classified as Real Time Strategy with some rpg elements.
