Good Morning Topic – How Short is too Short?

By now I’m sure you’ve all heard that The Order 1886 isn’t a long game. Most critics measure it at something like 7 hours, and that’s including the generous amount of cut scenes, and deliberately slowed now exposition sequences.

For many people a game with a run time of 7 hours isn’t reasonable for the asking price of 40 pounds/ 60 dollars. So many people expect more bang for their buck. Shorter games should cost less, but no one ever says longer games should cost more. Personally I find a perfect length is unique to each game. Some like Alien Isolation go on too long.  Where I’d like Skyrim to be as long as possible. Right now, a short game sounds great. I can blast through and get a full experience in no time. I have the cash, but if I had less money for games would I resent dropping it on a £40 game? I’m not sure.

What do you think though? How long do you like you games? Short and sweet, or epic long time sinks? Let me know below.
