And what expansions are you buying that costs around 40?

And defeatist attitude? Mate, these are videogames not a war or a way of life. Videogames are a hobby and a release from the stresses of modern day life, and I personally find it a bit sad if people start bitching about luxuries such as videogames. If you enjoy them, enjoy them. If you don't then find something else to pass the time or just keep replaying your "legends". Just stop bitching about "morons" ruining the industry just because they don't know better and just enjoy their games.
If only these lower-time games gave the enjoyment you say they do. The shift in focus from gameplay to graphics has cheapened the experience significantly. Games like Civilization, X-Com, Starcraft, and so many others did not have this reliance on flash over substance, and provided better experiences for each hour, in addition to having countless more hours, than any of these newer games. The short, but powerful game you seem to imply is a rare breed.

And why shouldn't we have a right to complain about the current industry? It's run by shallow-minded morons who want a quick buck, and the players of these games don't even get that much enjoyment out of their games, they're just not used to a real experience, so don't demand quality, much as the majority of people for every media. I'll start straying into Sociological concerns such as apathy and laziness if I start discussing that however. Suffice to say that the industry is giving them cheap thrills, while not catering to those who want a fulfilling and learning experience.

Writer of crappy fics, I hope you might derive some enjoyment from them.

Now it's you who is spouting bullshit. I am going to jump in and defend KA here. We are paying the guts of 50 for a game. I have the right to moan about that game, because i am the consumer. Businesses are nothing without the consumer, and in order to please the consumer, games have to be good quality. I played at least 100 hours to complete mario 64 in N64, that is what should be expected. Shadow of the Colossus, probably the best 2nd generation console game, i clocked around 45 hours (on hard mode). GTA IV, the best game of the Next-gen consoles, IMO anyway, i still haven't completed and i have played it an awful lot. Games that don't get boring after a while and are long enough to provide good entertainment are pre-requisites. MW2 took me 11 hours to complete, and that included finding intel. Blops took 7 hours. That is pathetic. My next purchase is going to be either Dragonage 2 or mortal kombat, so if anyone knows about these, please let me know. DA 2 seems to get great reviews.

did you collect all intel? and use the thundergun on the boat? I played it on highest difficulty too. Lets not have an "i am better than you because i completed it in 4 hours" war. I complete games in my own time.

It's okay, mcmuffin, Doelago doesn't have a life and spends his time playing Computer Games; so that's why he's so good. I've still not completed Blops on Hardest. Then again, the story doesn't fucking interest me one Iota.

The story is incohesive nonsensical bollocks. like i said, i only keep the game for nazi zombies. the hardest mode gets boring after a while, as does the entire game. It hasn't entered my ps3 for months.

Wrong, I spend my time posting pointless threads like this and the 5 others I posted last evening.
