How Much is Alan Wake Worth?

If you check out the comments for The Escapist's review of Alan Wake, you'll find a number of people expressing dismay over the thought of paying full price for a game that's relatively short. It's easy to understand their point: $60 is not an insignificant sum for most folks, and the game's story-intensive aesthetic and lack of multiplayer means that it's pretty much a one-shot experience. You play it, you finish it, you put it on a shelf and quite probably never pick it up again. Which brings us to the very uncomfortable question of how much is a game actually worth? (Alan Wake, Xbox 360)

Im a guy who like video games.
Not enough to be a fanboy or bitch about shit or whatever , but i don't like hypocrites ps3 fanboys....

Alan Wake may not have the best graphics ever. But its still way up there. Id say at this point the only game with better graphics is halo reach.

Im definitely going to look into Alan Wake. If I dont buy it then I am definitely going to rent it. But yeah. It definitely looks much better than most games out there.

Alan Wake is going to be great even with all the "negativity" surrounding it.

Was Heavnly sword worth 60 dollars?, was MAG or that 360 multiplayer only game(the one that you could play against pc players) worth 60 dollars? GOW 3 is only 8-9 hours long, is that worth 60 dollars?......

There is far too much double standards going on, end of the day its worth the money if you are willing to pay for it

Did you read the article? That was the authors conclusion, I think the only reason she mentioned Alan Wake is because it was her most recent review and their were some people discussing it in the forums.

As long as you enjoy the experience, it's worth $60

Length doesn't really bother me when it comes to games. A game might last only 5-7 hours, but if I've enjoyed it, then I say it's money well spent.

And if not, then I can easily sell it on ebay or trade it in. It's not like I'm being forced to keep the game and put up with the money-loss.
