Extending the Life of Games Through Books, Comics, and Other Media

Games aren't getting too short; people just aren't ready to finish with their universes. The solution to the problem is not longer games but expanded universes via books, comics, and other media.

The story is too old to be commented.

I completely agree. While I haven't explored many ancillary media for games, it is probably more because there isn't much for the games I truly love. I've come to really love short games, because I can't always find a lot of time to sneak away upstairs for hours on end and play a game while the wife handles the kid (who smeared yogurt all over the dog and peed in a box yesterday).

So 6 or so hours of game is plenty for me, and if I really loved that world, I would gladly read a comic or watch a movie that helps flesh out that world a little bit more.

I have to say I've never been interested in game-related comics (well...the City of Heroes issues were kind of OK) or books, personally.
