How many hours of gameplay is just right for games? Being too long or too short can ruin a game. What is PlayStation 4 discusses why certain genres need a specific length of gameplay and why gamers expect this.
For me, it needs to be at LEAST 30 hours. And, I don't do multiplayer.
Holy crap you don't play much games huh.....how many games fit that mold? @Minute Man 721 EDIT- I interpreted the 30 hours as beating the campaign in that amount of time not how much time you put into the game. The Crackdown campaign isn't very long, but I put tons of hours into it. I don't think it's considered a 30 hour game.
Just Cause 2, put over a 100 hours into it
Tons of games have over 30 hour campaigns, Particularly RPG, RTS and action adventure. Seems to me that the only genre really lacking in completion time is big budget shooters.
Tons of games fit that mold. It's just modern games that don't.
You are missing out on a lot of great games. for me its a cost to play ratio. A downloadable game can be a two to five hour game at the right price.
No Multi plenty of single player action.
Since I mostly play action games, anywhere between 4 and 15 hours.
8 to 10 otherwise I get sick of it and start killing the protagonist for fun as they are getting on my nerves.
You must not play rpgs at all lol.
You are very right zzzzzzz.
Two dollars per hour of engaging gameplay is my policy. But honestly 1 hour in one game could have the quality of 3 hours in another game. Like Metal gear rising versus skyrim, Skyrim is a pretty awesome game the first time you play through, but its a very slow burning game, where as metal gear rising is very very intense, but obviously doesnt have the length that skyrim does.
At least, 8h. I don't buy anything at launch with less than that.
More than the 1.5 hours in Ground Demoes.
50+ hours is the ideal longevity. Games should be long and extensive full of things to do aside from the main path for the game. Unfornatly many games arent like this but high quality justifies it games like Metal Gear Solid are one of them but one prologue and side ops missions is pretty thin even for a 30-40 bucks sorta game. Konami just drop the price.
