Are Shorter Games Better? (This Is My Joystick)

You could argue that gaming is like waiting for a bus. You spend the baron wasteland of the summer months patiently hoping for a decent release to appear on the horizon and just when you start to lose hope, loads arrive together at the same time. Within a two month period we have had Arkham City, Skyrim, Gear of War 3, Forza 4, FIFA 12, Battlefield 3, Call of Duty: MW3 and Rage all vying for our attention.

depends on game, there are some games to me that I want finish quickly, because I got bored of them, but some are where I don't want to see the end at all :) I think for games (not RPG) is alright 8 - 10 hours..

Stupid question. There are sh!tty long games and great short games and vice versa. It's not all about length (In videogames that is.)

How long a game lasts doesn't determine a game's quality. Not all by itself, anyway.

it all depends on the game i think.

if its reptitive gameplay, less is more. <racing games are a major example of this> but then again theres Sims ala Forza and GT5 which are long as hell yet still fun.

and then theres story based games <uncharted, skyrim are examples> which you dont want it to drag on and on. so leght depends completely on how long it takes to tell a story.

i know people will disagree with me, but i thought heavenly sword <for its short length> to be a great game. but a game like Half life 2 on my xbox too long and too boring. <keep in mind im not a die hard half life fan>
