Locked: Would you pay $1000 for a 100 hour game?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Would you pay $1000 for a 100 hour game?

Looks like the question of The Order 1886's length will never die. The magazines slammed the game and are claiming 5 hours total, but that's assuming you speedrun it and skip all the video scenes. I streamed myself playing it on Twitch and found it took me about 9 hours in total on my first go.

The game itself is nowhere near deserving of as much hate as its getting. The reviews most quoted are from sites that are not only under fire from GamerGate, but like to nitpick to create "sensationalist" reviews that attract visitors. Look at IGN claiming the latest Pokemon games had "Too much water", and Gamespot sacking one of their reviewers when site advertising was withdrawn due to a review he gave.

The main issue I find is that hardly anyone mentions what is actually IN the game, only its length. Overall it's a fun Gears of War clone with a fantastic steampunk storyline and awesome weapons (such as a Thermite cannon). Not the sort of thing I'd pay £54.99 for, but solid enough at a discount (I got it as part of a £299 PS4 package Argos had on offer last month).

As for the $10/hour equation, I found at 9 hours length and £54.99 price, it comes to about £6.11 ($9.20). However it's 9 fun hours overall.

How about 60$ for Halo 3 when you do not have xbox live. Essentially the same thing, can beat the game in 3-5 hours. Include Xbox live, another 60$ tacked on eh.

I personally will not buy The Order 1886, but it does not mean that people that buy it are in the wrong.

your example is bad and you should feel bad.halo 3 was an early 7th gen game. unlless youve played the game a billion times and are used to the levels, they'res  no way youre finishing it in 5 hours on normal.  About 10 hours is expected for halo 3 campaign if youre not playing heroic or legendary difficulty. Also, halo 3 is a classic while this is a mediocore game. the 60$ for xbl can be applied to any game, and with it you can easily get 30+ hours from the game. I say 30+ but i know a lot of people with 100+ hours.

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.



I get what you are trying to say, but a better question would be "Would you pay $120 for a 100 hour game?"



That's not really a fair comparison. 60$ for a 6 hour game is not the same as paying 1000$ for a 100 hour game.

Nope, not a chance.



Yes, yes and yes. A six hour game can very well turn into a 30-100 hour game if you fall in love with it. I haven't yet played the game, but games like that, linear, cinematic, usually hold a lot of replay value with me. It's games with unnecessary padding that turn me off.
I never felt ripped off with Heart of Darkness 17 years ago for instance, even though I had few money for games back then and it's like an hour long.

Nah, I played Halo 2 extensively. And I easily beat Halo 3 in one night, did not have xbox live at the time. Thus 5-8 hours I shall say for Halo 3 and some say 9 hours for The Order 1886. Halo 3 was still worth it to me as The Order 1886 can be for others.



Remember that time Portal was the best 3 hours of gaming you ever got for free

damn I miss that time

I agree with that, i just dont think halo 3 should be considered a game lacking content lol.
