A 100 hour game usually has a lot of repetition and midway it already feels old. So not all of that 100 hours is enjoyable.

You have GTA in your nick and assassins creed in your avatar. Both game-series have a lot of content and can probably be played for 100 hours and more. So can be assumed your comment condenses your experiences with these two series?

"$10/hour of gameplay"

is too much.
Anyone remember the good old days of ps2 games?
Most of those have 100+ hours in them, if you go about doing everything you can in them.


Not sure why 6-8hours of total gameplay has become acceptable.

Games used to be atleast 50+ hours, gameplay wise.
Im not happy with the trend of games suddenly becomeing 1/5th of what they used to be.

Just no.

You can even power your way through the giant games like gta3 in a handful of hours if you just go from story mission to story mission... you might not even get a handful of hours from it.

Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

I admit that both the series are a bit repetitive near the 100 hour mark, but I really enjoy them overall.

Even the order get some repetitive elements (similar QTE-events/similar fights), but the overarching point here is enjoyment. I criticised the OP, because he condensed value alone to length, and brought up enjoyment. So even a highly repetitive game is great, if the repetition is enjoyable. So this is the true value of a game, not length, not surprises, not cinematic experience, not the story, not the characters. But the enjoyment. All the points before can add to or subtract from the overall enjoyment, but enjoyment is the real value, not one of the other points alone. Also enjoyment is highly subjective, so a game one person enjoys can be crap for another. That's the problem with the critic in the OP on short games and your critic on long games, they both are missing the point.

who here have a spare $1000 dollars that can be spend on a single game...... 1st call me, second just buy multiple games I am pretty sure the games will add up more than 100 hours.....

OP are you implying that the value of gaming hours is the same for every game? For example: 8-15 hours is pretty decent for an average game, but 15 hours in Skyrim is nothing.

Same way I don't go to movies thinking that "...if this doesn't last at least 2 hours minimum I've wasted my money."

Same way I wouldn't buy a shitty game for 60 that lasts 20 hours just because "I'd get some value for my money". :D

So what if the price is 60 dollars now, it will be cheaper in the future, so just deal with it.

I paid zero, and have 64,968 hours in a game. So, clearly, you're all doing it wrong. (Although, full disclosure, I did voluntarily donate $400 to it).

Sorry but I find this EXTREMELY hard to believe, since 64,968 hours is equal to 2,707 days, which again is equal to roughly seven and a half years of gametime, which I personally see as complete and utter bullshit, unless you can actually prove it to me... although these days it's way too easy to use an image editing program and change things, my brother tried to kid his friend that he'd spent over 10,000 hours on World of Warcraft when his playtime was in fact only around 300 hours... yet after he'd edited it in photoshop it looked like a completely legit screenshot, and he's only 12, so it can't be too hard to do.

Well, Guest didn't log in all night, so I'm assuming we're cool :D



but do00d dat graphix!


no not when there are a lot better movies out there



    R.I.P Mr Iwata :'(


Why would I? Brand new, I can get it for 50€. And if I'm willing to wait, I can get it for less than 10€. Or in some cases, I can even get it for free (and of course I'm speaking about legal alternatives).

I actually made a random name up, something like Heinekintor or something silly, can't remember it, but if you can see what other people type, I was just typing stuff like kill player, and it was like no player here so I tried being more specific and typed kill all the jews, and it said no all the jews here... terrible grammar! then I just kept typing what and help and shit like that, because seriously, I have no clue how to actually enjoy a text based game, lol... although I did manage to make myself a human, yay me, right? :P
