December '08 - Video Games Getting Shorter.
completed Tomb Raider Underworld on the
PlayStation 3, it's a brilliant game, there
are a few bugs and annoyances with it but no
more than in any other game.
also been using the Eidos forums a lot and
reading what other people have said about it.
Some people love the game but a few hate it
and cannot stand it.
was talking about the game being too short
and someone else mentioned that the more
graphical a game is then it's bound to be
shorter because there's less resources left
for the game to be larger, they can't make a
big game if it won't fit on the disc.
exception of RPG games and those giant MMORPG
type games, computer and console games seem
to be getting shorter. I completed Tomb
Raider Underworld in six days but I remember
playing the original Tomb Raider for over a
month before I completed it. It seems like
the more powerful games consoles become then
the smaller games are becoming. I could
imagine in ten years time photo realistic
games with real actors running on extremely
powerful consoles, but the game only lasts
what the future will be and if the game's
industry will ever sort it out.
