I dropped good money on the PS3 so I was hoping like everyone else that Heavenly Sword would be the game that could deliver the goods. I pray that the second installment of this series will fair better.

Who the hell cares about length?

In fact I like shorter games every now and then. Being suffocated by a 50+ hr adventure isn't always rewarding.

QFT! but being able to blow through a game in one sitting isn't always rewarding either... to each his own I guess

So you agree with me and disagree with me?

I know what you mean though. Definitely. I's just that, personally I rarely play through the same game twice.

How is a 50+ hour game suffocating? I like a nice long game like I like a nice long book. At the end you feel like you've gone through something real. I don't think I've ever played a game that I would call too long.

Baldur's Gate II + Throne of Bhaal expansion took me around 100 hours to finish, and that felt "just right" in regards to length.

Zelda TP took me about 50 hours, and while it's a masterful game, I felt it could have used another 20 hours to the main storyline to beef it up.

Honestly, with the amount of time I have to game I would rather play a 10-20 hour game then a 50 hour game... I just don't have the time to finish games anymore.

You'd play a game for 6-7 hours straight!?

IMO a shorter game would have more chance of being replayed than a longer one...

I usually drop about 2-3 hours on games a week. So for something like Metroid, it'll last me a couple of months.

But when something truly amazing (like Zelda) comes out, I'll take some time out of my schedule to do it up.

My point is, if it's a good game, then why worry about how long it takes to beat it?

If you guys have time to post 15k posts on a forum, you have time to play games.
