Long / Large forms

Hi,

I'm looking for examples of very long forms, or forms for gathering
lots of data. Forms that have multiple questions (20+) for gathering
lots of long answers (150 words +).

I'm thinking these would be like Resume Builders, Grant
Applications, Business Plans...

Anyone seen or worked on something like this?

Thanks,
Chris

It may have been a legacy issue from the days when the firing timing was the most important skill since many of those early games only allowed one or two moving 'bullets' on the screen at once.
