what games do you prefer?

Me, i think i am leaning towards shorter games. Bloated games like donkey Kong 64 or Sonic Unleashed don't appeal to me. However games like Uncharted and Sonic Colors a like better because they don't waste my time with trying to be bigger to the demitrit to it's gameplay.

Well, i actually really love something in between.
Lets say you take a game like a shmup. Something thats best enjoyed in short bursts. Now, you can give that game some depth and replayability: An excessive unlockables system, branching level paths, character / ship / weapon customization etc.
Something to tinker around with to prolong the game a bit longer.

like @Retro_on_theGo, whatever I'm in the mood for, it used to be always longer games but lately it depends completely of how I'm feeling.

Fun games.

Beyond Good and Evil 2 better be happening! In the meanwhile though, here's a fun little Let's Play of the original. Think you'll like the game if you like Zelda!

I like a good game that I can invest my time into so anything long or with high replay value is a treasure to me If the made a game that took two weeks to beat story wise and a month for everything else I would throw my money at them no questions asked like( once a again) Dragon Quest IX took me weeks to see all I could with out DLC.

Capcom at E3: Guys we're sorry about how we've been treating Mega Man so we're gonna make it up to you by releasing the Mega Man Cancelled Collection with all the titles we cancelled in the condition they we're in just before we pulled the plug. Now who wants Street Fighter X Monster Hunter?

All a shmup needs is a good scoring system. Difficulty and Powerups.

Even Star Soldier R on Wiiware which has one 5 min level and a button mashing speed test I got my money from.

Would you rather your game end a hero, or last long enough to see itself become a villain?

I would prefer shorter games, but value for money is big if you don't have a lot to spend on games.

always thought I'd change to Gyarados after I turned 20 but hey, this is more fitting I guess. (also somebody registered under the original Magikarp name and I can't get back to it anymore orz)

I'd like to feel that I got my moneys worth but apart from that I don't really mind. How long it should be really depends on the game. In general though, I'll always think more of a game that was good throughout but a little short than one that started out good but got boring and drawn out towards the end. My favourite games vary in length considerably, so it really depends on the type of game and experience its offering.

I make Pixel Art on occasion, and sometimes sell them as Game Assets.

I don't care much about length, as long as it's got a good, deep story. Alan Wake was one of the shortest games I've played that has such an awesome storyline.

It's all a matter of looking at the past. It's all a question, are we gonna last? If we endure the aggression that's inside all of us, we'll wipe out our own species and thus...the world!

Pikmin 3 is a great short game and Valkyria Chronicles is a great longish game. I enjoy both if they are fun and don't under/overstay their welcome.

Then again, most good short games seem to under stay...

Shorter with a lot of replay value. I tend to lose track with long games story and progress wise since I game hop a lot (and life) to the point I never complete it or I start over again. With that said I still buy and play them.

A dying animal struggles, thrashes and howls in protest as its life torn from it. To see this in action, watch Animal Planet. The same thing happens when a video game is or isn't released. To see this in action, stay here.

I work 40 hours a week, so shorter games tend to fare better now that I've got less time. Any game that lasts me more than 10 hours, unless it's really great, I tend to feel the game drags.
