Why Are Games So Long? I Leviathyn

Why are video games so long? Do they need to be so long? Really? Why? (Gone Home, Industry, Mass Effect)

Best games are longer than 8 hours.

Only short game I think is good is Journey, and even that can be played at your own pace.

Is this guy insane? He clearly is not a gamer. Give me a 20, 30, 40 hour+ game over a suggested "3 hour game" any day.

I think he is missing a big point too, cost! Video games retail at around £40, and for that we expect something longer lasting in entertainment than a £10 movie on DVD!

One of the most ridiculous and pointless and irrelevant pieces of writing I have ever laid eyes on.
