I just played: The Beginner's Guide (loved it, go play it).
I have a fondness for short (~1 - 2 hour games).
I feel short games are more often than not, more satisfying per hour played, than longer games.
I look forward to playing Xenoblade 2 next month.

Do you like short games; do we need more short games?
Would you rather play: Xenoblade 2 or The beginner's Guide?

They are okay.

There's some good ones out there but a lot of bad apples in the tree.

I like short games because my backlog gets smaller and my completion rate increases :)

We need all sorts of games, short, long and no lifer...err endless games too :P.

I already played and beaten The Beginner's Guide, it was okay. I gave it a 70 out of 100.

I'd rather play Xenoblade 2 than The Beginner's Guide and Xenoblade Chronicles X combined.

The Beginner's Guide has a better story than Nier: Automata; it took a fraction of the time to tell its story too.
In my opinion.

Oh, and The Beginner's Guide ran better: I spent all of my time at 4k300.

Eh.

I love good games. They can be short, long, or anything in between, but they must be good. There's short games I love, like Star Fox 64, and short games I really didn't enjoy, such as Limbo. Same applies to long games.



I love the Battlefront 2 campaign too!

Cool, now I have a reason to buy the game.
Thanks.



The Beginner's Guide is currently $4 on Steam.
It takes about an hour to play.
It runs on pretty much anything (Windows, Mac, Linux).

What do you have to lose.

I was going to make a joke about Mario Odyssey, but I've had enough hater accusations for one month. 

I haven't actually played the BF2 campaign yet, don't buy that!

I won't buy BF2.
If you buy: The Beginner's Guide.

As long as the price reflects its length, yes.
