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.

Chun Li is a cute character for an interpol officer.

I like the movie Independance Day because of Will Smith.

Titanic was a pretty sad movie.

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.

looking forward to Codename S.T.E.A.M.

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.

Yo Square Enix I'm really happy for you and Imma let you finish milking but.. Final Fantasy is one of the most overdone series of all time!...ALL TIME!!
Also remember 7/18/2011 R.I.P. MegaMan Legends 3 we'll miss you...

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.

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.

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.

Don't let GameStop rip you off. Support used gaming and check out 99Gamers. Best trading service I've used.

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.

Critics who treat adult as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.

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.
