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 :)
I've read every harry potter book 7 times now, so I would say they are worth the value. I think it is better to compare it to toys. (Not saying games are toys btw) Compare a game like my little pony to a toy tractor. Divide it on the hours spent, and the lowest score wins. Haha :p
