I don't mind games being long and entertaining but sometimes I just want to play something that won't take over my life in order to complete it. I don't mind playing games that only last 10 hours as long as it has a deep story that satisfies me. Arkham City is a great game but there's one million and one collectable items and being the type of guy that needs to finish everything in a game, it takes a lot of time. There is way too much fluff and padding in some games these days.
Admittedly I know I could just ignore this fluff and grind through the main story, but in doing so I feel like I'm missing a vital part of the game and it forces me to concentrate on the fluff.
Ah the solving problems in the world while on the loo, we've all been there
Yeah I sadly have no real time for long games anymore soo tend not too be able too finish them, I love gaming just as much but I feel the same as how you put it.

Nice shots, I quite like the cell shaded style but haven't been able too play Borderlands because of the reasons above.
I did games design as a degree and I remember there's a room of 100 computers entirely for laning matches, WoW was quite fun in massive parties but we mainly had UT2003 then. Wish I was there now for a full blown 64 man lan on BF3, that would have unbelievable.
