All About The_Last_Ride
Welcome to my blog!
So i have been thinking about this for a while. How long should a game be when buying it. There are some games that are only 5 hours long. Some are over 100 hours long if you explore the game. This is an issue i feel should be viewed and discussed more
When paying full price for a game i feel that there should be more content than just 5 hours, even though they are really good. If the singleplayer is that short, they should maybe have a mutliplayer/co op part in the game. It is something i think should be shed light on. When someone required the player to pay the full price on a game and only have a short singleplayer experience i pushing it in my opinion.
Now some might say you can wait and buy the game when it is cheaper, it is beside the point. Because the publisher and developer release the game for a full price and considering it finish. If developers don't have time or means, they should lower the price on the game and make it more accesible for people rather than just making it full price at launch.
I don't know if anyone has any opinion on this like me, i would like to know though

Here are my thoughts on getting this at launch this time.
Now i will probably not get a new console at launch because there are enough games to play through this current gen, it's been so long and there are so many good games out there. The new gen won't have the strongest lineup for the first month's even though they will have games for the consoles, they won't have a big library. So why really stress and not wait a little bit. The consoles will be there even though you aren't the first one getting it. The support for the current gen consoles won't dissapear over night.
I would really like to get one at launch, but not really knowing if all the games will be good and if they will continue realesing games for the consoles even after launch is what Wii U is currently having a problem with. There is always a risk getting one at launch, and sometimes the risk is bigger than the actual reward most of the time getting it at launch.
I would not say don't buy this at launch to anyone, but my personal feeling is that you can always wait and see and just finish your current backlog. There are also a lot of great games still coming out this year. So i would say do some research and test the waters before getting these new consoles.
There will be more games announced at E3 and close to launch off course, but you don't know how the system will be like when getting it day 1 and if you have all those games avaliable.
Those are just my thoughts
