    so i just found out Zelda Phantom hourglass is only about 15 hours. . . a bit short. . . but not bad for a portable game i guess.

    I was also dissapointed with the length of MP3, i expected it to be twice as long. . . I beat it in about 16 hours.

    why is it that nintendo can only make long games like TP or short games like MP3?

    why can't they make a good medium length game thats like 30 hours? ^_^

    I just want a $50 product to last a while ya know?

    anyone else feel this way?

    well a smashbros. game hasn't come out in years and i got bored of repetative pokemon games a long time ago.

    mariokart is fun.

    it just seems all of nintendo's main franchises like zelda, metroid etc. are this way.

    Brawl is coming out soon, along with mario kart which I forgot about. The new DS Pokemon is pretty good. Sure they are all similar, but the online and improvements have made it worth it.

    The others are just meant to be adventures, I do wish they would make an open world Zelda game though.

    What Percentage were you at for those games.? Try getting to 100% then it adds like an extra 10 hours. Plus i know what you mean, cause if you rush those games it takes an extremly short amount of time.

    Well all I can say is, just know what your getting yourself into before you play. Somehow..(demo channel? :lol:)

    But seriously yeah, I didn't like the length of metroid either, I beat it at 81% in 11 hours and 17 minutes. I still enjoyed it though.
    At least we can expect the next Zelda to be long.

    I think Nintendo announced WAY BACK that they were going to make 1 last zelda game! THE LAST ONE! Not sure if this was false info but that's what i heard. I'll look for a link just give me a while. Alot of searching needs to be done.

    Its not just Wii, XBox owners have complained that games like BioShock and Halo 3 are too short too.

    0.o wtf, at least most wii games aren't that short. . . I guess your paying for the online though. . . but you have to pay for online anyway! :lol:

    well I'm sure your cousin is an above average gamer but still, games are way to short theses days.

    I personally would not pay $60-$120 for a really short game with great online + the cost of online, another $60.

    Heavenly Sword for the PS3 is reportedly only 8-10 hours long.

    A lot of games nowadays seem to be very short. I thought MP3 was too short with an average completion time of between 12-20 hours (took me 16)but i will replay it after a couple of weeks. Halo 3 is supposed to have an average completion time of 6 hours which is horrible for a $70 game although the multiplayer will keep people busy for ages. Likewise Bioshock (around 10-15 hours) and Heavenly Sword (reportedly 6 hours) are far too short for what you pay for them.

    I rate The Godfather very highly on the Wii despite it not being as flashy as those games because it can offer up to 40 hours of gameplay (with great controls too). I paid $40 for it so at $1 an hour of gameplay i think it was great value.

    Quality games are great but not if you can complete them in an afternoon.
