  • silversaint posted a message in the forum topic How important is the length of a game?. on the General Discussion board

    I feel game length is highly relevant when thinking of costs. In an ideal world where all games are free quality > quantity, but when you have a game like say RE3 thats of decent quality, but onl...

    I think its at least worth starting. The thing is, as bad as the game was on launch, its still a triple A open world sci-fi RPG which is itself a rarity. Yeah the game has issues, but its not like ...

    There is definitely a lot of violence, but in a world with games like Resident Evil, Dead Space, Outlast, Dishonored, Prey, need I go on?, I don't think its a real consideration. This even ignores t...

    @onemanarmyy: It makes sense to just call it the Souls Style or Souls Games since in every game involving collecting stuff that you lose on death you refer to the resource as Souls.
