Focus on the experience not time played when purchasing a game

Something that has been on my mind for quite a while especially since the recent release of the new Metal Gear Solid game, it has brought up the question, is it worth purchasing a $60 game that only takes a few hours to complete ?

While I get that sometimes the best way to justify a $60 game purchase is by the amount of hours you might spend on it to complete it. I think all to often people dismiss a game at least initially because it contains a short campaign. While I understand that way of thinking I don’t think it applies to well to games. Case in point, games like Fallout 3 and The Last Of Us might differ drastically in the time it takes to complete each game but both experiences are simply fantastic in their own respective ways. Instead of thinking of how long it will take you to complete a game you should focus more on how much you will enjoy the experience when you consider purchasing a game. In the end the value of a game is not based on how long it will take you o complete the game but how much fun you will have playing and replaying it I know I do. In the end isn’t that what you think about anyways once you finish the game, how great your game experience was and less on how long you spent playing the game. At least that’s how I feel about it now I would like to hear what you think if you agree or disagree, leave your comments down below.
