Depends on the game.

Crysis 3 I couldnt wait for it to end. Turns out it was too long for me cos I lost interest and stopped playing.

Bloodborne I'm on the cusp of hitting 100 hours and I can challenge Gerhman if I want to, but I dont want it to end so I'm still running around doing what I can to prepare for NG+.

Its all relative.

At what point can you challenge him?

I think I can since the gate in the back is open, but I never entered (don't want to trigger a cut scene).

Currently I'm going through the chalice dungeons on each type (standard and root) and level/depth. I want to kill the boss at the end before using multiple saves to get all endings.

You go manually hit the x button to talk to him first so you can go back there and at least check it out if you want to see the area. It's gorgeous.

Couldn't make it through the "massive" 6 hour campaign? I admit it wasn't my favorite FPS title, but playing it om the harder difficulties really adds depth to it.

Then again, I can't tell you how many games I've put down after 1-2 hours. I think as often as not that's the case sadly.

Double post. Stupid mobile Internet!

ArchangelMike1265d ago

Did you ever play Alien Isolation? No that was a game that I just could not wait for it to end.

* If a game is too long stop playing it.

If a game is 50 hours, but you only wanted to play 20 hours.....then STOP playing after 20 hours...

right.....??

*sigh* I hate submissions like these. It's a video and nothing but a video. The description is literally one sentence and is just there as a place holder because they want you to watch the video.

**EDIT** Could be worse, could be a stupid list article.

MRMagoo1231265d ago

Don't complain , it could be worse, it could be a Gamingbolt article.

DragonKnight1265d ago

Yeah you're right. Plus I just remembered I essentially tried to submit something like this a few days ago when I tried submitting a Jimquisition video so basically I just acted like a total hypocrite. In my defense though, I'm up way too late right now.

rainslacker1265d ago

Gotta love those late nights. I say many incoherent and stupid things at 3-4am.

Is it the same Lucy who complained about Bloodborne because it's too difficult and gave a low score for it?
Too difficult, too long, what else? *palmface*

Kenshin_BATT0USAI1265d ago

Too much game. Was expecting a movie.

robtion1265d ago

Lucy O'Brien works for IGN as has no credibility. She has done some aweful reviews. Very close minded. Hex is from Australian TV show Good Game. Again I find her opinions on games are often way off, not that I have watched the show enough to really know.

MasterCornholio1265d ago

Is she the one who made the too much water comment?

robtion1265d ago (Edited 1265d ago )

@MasterCornholio No, different person I think but the review quality is of about the same caliber.

Germany71264d ago

That's true, i got confused. Both are clueless about games.

Rebel_Scum1265d ago

Why can't you put too difficult or too long as reasons to not like a game?

That Good Game show is hard to watch. It's really aimed at 6-14 year olds. Although sometimes Hex and Bajo do say things about some games that surprise me.

It's like they're being honest. Its kinda surreal.

MRMagoo1231265d ago (Edited 1265d ago )

I am pretty sure good game spawn point is made for the younger audience the normal show is meant for older gamers.

crxss1265d ago

The Order was definitely too long.
