That's a lot of disappointment.

I say stick to the lengths they are.

Well I guess I always use RPGs as my focal point and I enjoy it when my last save shows I have put in some 30 hours in it and I'm not even half way thru the tale. Sure 50 hour games can be fun too but I like epicness and as LeShin said why would I want to pay 60 bucks for a 2 hour game. Endings are what you make of them as well.

There is always gonna be a niche that will want 1000 hour games, so someone will do them. If you do not, then tough... there are still plenty of developers that are as good if not better than yours.

Well, if 100 hour games are on the way out, they'd better start dropping the price significantly because I and quite a lot of other people won't be spending upwards of £50 for a game I/they can complete in 2 hours!

People already play way more than 100 hours in "free-roaming" games... the sky is the limit.
