Rocket Knight Adventures.

I liked how it managed to tell the story of an attack on a peaceful kingdom, a bitter rivalry between a hero and a rival, and reveal a power behind the throne without a single word, and only the scarcest of cutscenes. The finale is one of the most satisfying video game finales of all time.

I think Elite Beat Agents is around 8 hrs. or so.  Though considering how hard the game is, it'll probably take longer.

I thought most games took 8 hours to beat or less?  Not sure what the point of this is unless you want to get *really* short, like 20 minutes or less for your average player.

I'm actually thinking more along the four hours or less variety, but I didn't know how many games actually fell into that category. Twenty minutes sounds like a good per session time though. But that's just adding way to many parameters to the mix.

Really how many games out there can give you satisfying play in a <= 20 minutes session and take less than 4 hours to complete?
