That doesn't even make sense.

Killzone 2 on Elite difficulty and if you don't stick to cover all the time, you're dead every 5 seconds. That makes a game scary?

Devil May Cry 3 - Dante Must Die mode. One hit kills on you and enemies come at you by the dump truck loads. I remember first playing that and was stuck on the opening levels for about two weeks until I got the hang of things. After beating the mode, I had blisters all over my hands and the controller was wrecked. That means the game was scary? Not in the least bit.

Have you even stopped for a second then? Have you just been pushing the W key and the run key the entire game on Easy mode? You're missing out on 90% of what the game actually has or is about. If you're only 4 hours playing and are on chapter 11, you need to reconsider playing the game my friend. Sorry but you can't just skip 1/2 the game and say it's short.

You have a good point there but maybe that is how he plays games. Or maybe this particular game gives him this feeling whereby this - much quicker than your - fast paced experience is correct for him. What he gets out of it is what he gets out of it and it isn't necessarily wrong. Apparently its just too short.

Back in the day developers concentrated on gameplay over shiny graphics and epic yet scripted scenes. Half life 2 is not the best game graphically, but i felt horror, anger and helplessness at the end of Episode 2. I simply stared at my screen with my mouth open as the credits rolled / Alyx cried, and i have yet to experience the same level of emotional attachment to a game.

Lol wow you are overreacting lol, I didn't care for HL2 story, and Alyx and her dog robot were so annoying. I mean seriously, a cutesy Dog robot that's just so cheesy.

HL1 was pretty cool, but HL2 is meh.

Not this =p

Personally anyways, I thought Hl2 was very well written and the characters were believable. I actually thought Dog was a good touch, the scene where you first get the grav gun and other scenes involving dog (throwing the car, etc) were great.

Maybe a tad cheesy, but far less predictable than your typical robot. I felt the robot had a personality and was a legitimate character.

i hated half life 2. it was 1 stupid gimmick after another. oh look i use antlions, oh look i shoot rockets at walkers, oh look im riding a stupid water thing, oh look im using a gravity gun. The game lacked any soul and felt like a walking tech demo.

I was not impressed, and i was a huge half life 1 fan.

Now, when I was younger, I liked longer games because I could play alot. Now, I like a little shorter games, but don't feel like $60 is a fair price for what we are getting.
This. Ever since I changed my job and moved in with my gf, those epic nights of Fallout sidequestin' are long gone. Playing time has been drastically reduced for me.
I agree with op's article, but under my circunstances, I really wouldn't mind a couple of 10-15 hour games.
