tell that to people who judge an entire game after 8 minutes of watched game play for a game that's not even out or done yet.
If It takes me 30 hours to start enjoying a game I'd rather not play it unless someone else is willing to get to the 30 hour mark for me gaming is a hobby i find it fun i don't find fun sitting their for over a day worth in hours doing something that is boring
This whole thing you just said here absolutely doesn't make any sense.
The lack of punctuation was killing me but yeah your right it makes no sense at all even after you break it into actual sentences.
"If it takes me 30 hours to start enjoying a game then I would rather not play it. Unless someone is willing to play it for me to get me past the 30 hour mark then I would rather not play it. Gaming is a hobby for me and I find it fun. I don't find it fun sitting there for over a day worth of hours doing something that I deem boring." -Waka Flocka Flame For all the illiterates out there this is for you.
His grammar may be bad, but is point is true and straight forward. His aggres/dis prove his case. Why u think u have so many disagrees? Did u really not get where he was going?
I gave up on FF13 after 20 hours. Some people tell me my opinion of the game is invalid because I haven't played it fully. I tell them to eat some ****
the main story was kinda boring, the last 7-10 hours were good. however I really really enjoyed the side missions. after you play them the battle system makes much much more sense. so yea the author of the article is kinda right however I only needed like 6 minutes on MW3 to tell what a piece of crap that game was
I thought Mass Effect sucked add the first 30 minutes because of the Citadel. Stuck with it and now I can hardly find time to play anything except Mass Effect 2. Btw who wants a Dust 514 beta code. They everyone in the beta another to invite someone to and I never got around to it
In the first 2-4 hours of playing a game, you should be able to discern whether or not this game is enjoyable or a slog. 30 hours? Just like Danger said, if you are up to 30 hours and still are questioning whether the game is fun or not, here's a protip: it's not.
30 hours is WAY TOO LONG! The maximum I would say is maybe 8-12 (2-4 minimum like KonaBro stated) for myself to push myself through a game to judge it if I don't know anything about it. In addition it varies as well if it just has bad gameplay or a bad story...and it depends on what the hell you were doing in those 30 hours! :P I still try to find out as much as I can about a game if I am interested in it without spoiling a whole lot so it leaves some surprise left to myself. EDIT: Adding in that sometimes you need to come back to it and see if you can get involved in the game or not with a different mindset.
^ about my comment above...I didn't mean 30 hours of TOTAL play time being too long for a game...I was agreeing that if there is a "first 30 hours" of a game shouldn't take you that long to be able to know whether a game is right for you or not :)
omg a freaking love games n' stuff yo
30 hours? Is that a joke? If it takes 30 hours for you to get interested in a game or for it to get good or for you to decide if it good or not that can't be much of a game.What kind of lame game drifts around for thirty hours and then starts getting interesting? Not even RPGs take that long.You have to grab me from the beginning or risk losing me completely.
Huh? I hardly play games that take that long to beat much less get into.
Bollocks. A game needs to hook you in like a good film or book. Noting wrong with pacing but if it's gonna take 30 hours for a game or 40 minutes for a film or 300 pages of a book before it gets remotely good then no thank you.
When it came to fable 2 I hated that game from the beginning I beat it and I still hate that game I dont understand how that game got good reviews
It was fun for the first playthrough or two (the mini/meta games are really fun in my opinion) it was nice being able to pick gender and the skills were meh...i never bothered with Fable 3 though :P now THAT (to me) seemed gimmicky.
I wouldnt bother with fable 3 either even though I can get it for $12.99 @ gamestop
First 30 hours? Oh no... i'll give the game about 3 hours tops. By then, it should already have sucked me in with its gameplay or story by then.
