R.I.P Short Campaigns

I really hope the days of shelling out 60 bucks for a 3 to 5 hour campaign are over... but for some reason I doubt it. But I'm good with RE 6 being longer, it was like 3 hours or less, so let's hope for 10 to 12 but really probably more like 8 hrs.

I hope you are right, I really do.

I'd put up with a small campaign if I am to get a PROPER Resident Evil game instead of a COD/Black hawk Down wannabe bull**** effort that was RE5.

which is "...when you get all the DLCs that will be available starting from day 1"

That's great and all, but I kinda wish... You know, that it'd be a survival horror game...

emmerin2102d ago

i was on the top 200 leaderboard when res 5 came out for beating it in about 1 hour 30 mins or something like that. so this better be at least 3 times longer

ScubaSteve12102d ago

i placed 1st in one of the areas but i lost to some japanese gamer

I hope you aren't claiming this as your first playthrough playing it normally. Speed runs don't count when summing up the length of a game.

Megaton2102d ago

Can't trust devs on game length claims. I've never seen an accurate one to date. I remember Rockstar said GTAIV was 100 hours long. I 100%'d it in half that.

LOGICWINS2102d ago

I'd rather a game be 50 hours long with compelling content than 100 hours long with repetitive side missions. After I finsihed the main story line for GTA4, I was pretty much done with the game. Shooting virtual pigeons for a virtual trophy isn't what I would call "fun". The dates in the game were pretty good though. I was suprised at how many lines of dialouge each date had. Everytime I'd hear something new.

What was the point of your comment? All he said is Rockstar exaggerated the length of their game, like most companies. Then you go off on some rant that has nothing to do with anything.

On topic:
I'm guessing each of the 3 campaigns will be about 4 hours or less.

jetlian2101d ago (Edited 2101d ago )

jared what was your point in addressing his point lol. To me anything over 20 hours is the start of BS game design. There isnt enough stuff to do in gaming to make a full 20 hour game.

RE games of old all could be beaten in under 3 hours. Young gamers today annoy me with this 6 hours oh noooooooo!! Go play 90 percent of 8-16 bit era games most were under an hour and cost 50 bucks

AusRogo2102d ago

I remember DICE saying bc2 would be 10 hours long.. Lol but I really hope this is true for re6!

konnerbllb2102d ago

I'm not really looking for a long game. I'd rather have six hours of solid AAA gameplay than ten hours of average dragging my feet through the mud gameplay.

room4142102d ago

Six hours just isn't enough regardless of how good it is.

jeeves862102d ago

Some of the older games could be completed in 3, and they're considered masterpieces.

badz1492102d ago

if you think back about it, 6 hours of a really good solid AAA game will disappoint much more! it's a good game, shouldn't you be expecting more?
