So you feel that $15 isn't worth the experience? Sometimes I don't understand peoples logic. Some people consider that $/£40 is a good value for a day watching the football in a pub. This may last 3-4 hours, but can you ever get back to it? Sometimes people look at games and don't realise what they give them in life. Not saying every game is worth the premium, but judging by the reviews this one is.
How I feel as well.
The comparison I always use (and have used way to many times on these forums
) is I am willing to basically pay $15 for a 2 hour movie (it is actually $13 for a night time ticket), which is a passive experience as I am only watching it. Not only that but if it is in the actual theater, I cannot go back and watch it again, I would have to pay another $15. So speaking of it in that terms, $15-$20 seems about the price I think DVD's or BluRays should go for. And I have no issues paying for them when it is a movie I want to own. So I feel exactly the same for games, and if not more so, as where movies are a passive experience, games are an active participant experience. So in a way I believe they actually have more value. But if people see it differently that is their right to do so, I just personally feel there is not much of a difference.
And as I said earlier in the thread, I would rather play a 2 hour brilliant game than an 8 hour okay game any day. My personal belief on playing games is it is not ultimately about how many hours the game provides, but the experience the game provides once the game is over.
