So a youtuber uploaded a complete playthrough of The Order 1886 ahead of release last Feb. 14, and it seems he managed to finish the game in more or less 6 hrs.
I still did not look at the game as I hate spoilers, but for those who would/did watch, can you justify a purchase with this short of a duration for a game?
Personally, I would still buy the game as long as it is fun and has great replayability(optional) and of course, story.
For people interested to watch the playthrough, here's the link. <---- the videos in this link are already taken down.
Edit: Remember, I did not post this just so people can go bashing a games quality through the duration of a game, more so, the youtuber might have been playing this for a couple times that he got too familiar with the game hence reducing game duration, or he could have edited the video(can't tell cause I did not watch yet), let's all be civilized in criticizing a game, thank you.
Edit #2: Weerasuriya said he understood the concerns about value for money in the single-player game, but he believes the games business should offer diverse experiences.
“To tell you the truth, that’s something we always keep in our heads. We know people want to be entertained and have things they can play longer.
“But the industry has always had diversity. You go back 10 years, there were a lot of games that were just single-player, one time play. There were some games that were single-player and you could jump back in and get more. That’s what we did in our game. You can jump back and get other things out of it.”
Here's a link for more info on the interview.
