Forty Hours? I Don’t Have Time For That

This “Clive Thompson games column”:,71836-0.html?tw=rss.index applies to me, too. If a game is advertised as taking forty hours to complete, this increases the chance that I’ll never touch it — monumental games like ‘Zelda’ being the obvious exceptions than I try to arrange some playing time for. Actually, when I read complaints like “game X is only ten hours”, my imaginary “hey, this might be a game for me”-lightbulb starts to flash.
