I beat God of War 3 in 8 1/2 hours. Never wanted to play it again. I've played New Super Mario Bros. 2 for about 30 hours. First game cost me 60 bucks, the second 40.

Which one ripped me off more?

I didn't like GoW, so maybe that's a bad example?

Ha, well you can use the same formula for Uncharted or really any other big game this gen that isn't either A.) Focused on Multiplayer or B.) A Sandbox game or RPG.

The point remains that video games are a terrible value proposition.  If you don't want to get ripped off, go buy a book. (Can't get a better hours per dollar enjoyment ratio anywhere else.)

Haha, what? Harry Potter and the Philosopher's stone cost us $25 when it released and I need 2 hours to read it. Super Smash Bros. Brawl. cost me $60 and I have already invested 600 hours into the game. I didn't feel ripped off by either one, but hours per dollar for a book  are a bad example :)
