Back in my college and high school days, I used to have a ton of extra time I could devote to playing games. I'd relish the 50+ hours spent on an RPG. There were times I'd skip school or cut classes just to go home and game. But now as a working professional with a wife and family, I can barely squeeze in play time. I can't play an RPG and expect to finish it. I find myself playing shorter games instead like SMG or RE4 on the Wii. Square once commented that they believe the ideal game length was 20 hours. I'm starting to agree with them. Shorter games can be beaten quicker. You have less of a chance to tire of the game. Since the duration is shorter, the plots have to be compressed and streamlined. (There's less filler.) What does everyone else think? Do you like a short gaming experience, or do you demand that your games give you hour upon hour of play?
