When is a game too long?

Long games, short games, when is a game too long, too short, or just right? takes a look at the long and short of video game length...

From the article: "Yet, since Max Payne 2's release, games have, for the most part, become a shorter experience overall, with games with a single player storyline over 12-15 hours being the exception to the rule.

So, after all that expository, here's the question I want to discuss: When is a game too short, and when is a game too long?"

Because you can put it down any time you choose and bottom line, if it's a good game then it's never too long.

I personally think games now a days are way too short.
If I drop $60.00 on a game I want $60.00 worth of entertainment.

10-12 Hours is the max for me, I have a life and can't invest hour upon hour into the same game. In addition, I like my games to feel like a summer blockbuster; fast-paced & exciting. Heavenly Sword, Call of Duty 4, and Uncharted are of great length, in my opinion even though everyone says they are too short. One of the main reasons I am skipping on Fallout 3 (besides no trophies) is that it's 100hours long, no thanks. I know I will never finish it since I don't have the time or patience.

When it gets boring long before the end.

There was one released this year that is a perfect example.
