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

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

No. But the problem isn't the length...

I'd pay $30 for a 2 hour game. but not $3000 for a 200 hour game. Why? Because that's a fuck ton of money.

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.

It's a mud that's been in operation since 1991 (that I've played since 1991).  It's text-based, and since it requires next to nothing in system resources, I've simply left the application open and logged in for...well, quite some time now.  I met a ridiculous amount of people on that game back when it was actually active...120-150 a day during peak hours, so the nostalgia factor rocks, and the off-chance some random old face stops in, it's cool to catch up and see where everyone is in life.

And if I replay the game on at least an annual basis because I enjoy the journey? Then I'm getting infinity hours out of it. Besides I buy blurays of 2 hour movies (in collections) for $20 each. So basically you can't extrapolate and say it's the same. Quality over quantity.

No, I wouldn't. Simple, The Order isn't worth the 60$. There are other games out there for the same or cheaper price that provide a much longer experience



Predictions: PS4: 110m, XB1: 65m, Wii U: 15m, 3DS: 70m, PSV: 15m

Curl - 6 was right about Zelda U never being a wii u exclusive, I should have never bet against him :p

Good God, this is still around? Messing around in the Realms was like my first real use of the internet, back on crusty old dial-up...

Yes it is :D  Wow...another Realms vet...small world indeed.  Sonja and Maeglin now run it from their home, Khayman's usually online.



I paid $50 for Parasite Eve which was a 6 hour game. Great game is a great game, doesn't matter how long it it is. The length of The Order shouldn't be an issue.

Yeah Parasite Eve kicked ass, really liked that game.

But to be fair that game also had a new game+ and let you bring a weapon from your previous playthrough and included the chrysler building. There was replayability built into it. The order did not do this.



$60 for a 6 to 8 hr game is not that outrageous to me. I grew up in the 8 and 16 bit era when every game was $40 to $70 (yep, I paid $70 for Mortal Kombat II on Genesis in 1994) and you could easily beat many of them in under 3 hours. I'm just saying, things could be worse. A fun game is a fun game no matter how short/long it is.

But I can't comment on the Order, specifically, since I haven't played it yet.



It'll be awhile before I figure out how to do one of these. :P
