I don't know. Personally they could of made Gears of War, 100 hours long and it would just take me longer to finish it. I get bored sometimes and but it down, then later I'm in the mood to play again.

Really, if they make games 100 hours long, they could just do that and skip the next 2 sequels. But then they miss out on $59.99,two more times.

I personally don't see the big deal... we see movies based off current conflicts in the middle east all the time.
