Nintendo has most casual games beat on any other system, i mean lets face it, Marios been a 'casuals' game since the NES, putting a bunch of short platform levels that though they are short, the game ahead of them can be hugely longer then otherwise expected.
a game should be a MINIMUM of 40 hours long, even for 'casual' gamers, that amount of time is more then acceptable. anything shorter and the game better not be a full price game. that means 20 days if your only playing 2 hours a day.
They make video games short to SELL their games to morons who will buy a mere 20 hours of gameplay for a full priced game, with the replay values being in the gutter.
Point is, go look at any of the nintendo games on the N64, go look at any of the bioware games. THOSE games are the legends, the fun games that never quit, even with "casual" gamers.
No. I am pretty sure you're still spouting elitist BS.
I mean, a brand new game is about £39.99 and it's approximately 20 hours. So you're paying £2 an hour. Call me a moron, but if a game is enjoyable enough in my opinion, that isn't a bad deal. And at the end of the day, it's about enjoying games and not trying to squeeze as much game time out of it and I am pretty sure other "morons" think the same.
And I wouldn't say look at "any" bioware game. Especially since Dragon age 2. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy it, but it definitely ain't legendary.
EDIT: Vaz said what I am trying to say(In a straight-to-the-point manner) which is basically you enjoy what you enjoy. And his example of Dynasty Warriors is an apt one (I started at 4 and ended at 6 with the 2 SW in between).
