I present the following quote, courtesy of Martin at Megaderived, as my quick summary of everything that's wrong in computer gaming today.
Apologies to Martin for the quote; I suspect he's being more than a little tongue-in-cheek when he says that, but it stands out because it's so true. Who cares if we're having fun - did we get a lot of play hours for our money? (Note: I personally enjoyed FFX a whole heap, but that's beside the point.)
"I’m still playing [Final Fantasy X], and am now at the one hundred and seven hour mark. That’s working out at 0.0467 pence per hour of play seeing as I bought it for a meagre five pounds. I’m not really having any fun with it anymore, but it’s got a price-per-hour value that can’t be beat." (link)
And, because I've said all this before, I'll direct you all back to my very first substantive post on this blog. Will I keep regularly dredging this up until something changes? You betcha!
