New consoles have awesome graphics but if u have a day or 2 of gaming for about 3hrs then u complete the games. Maybe they should put less of the movie bits in games and slightly do away with attention to detail. And checkpoint every 5mins like cod grrr.

Do agree.

MW2 completed in under 5 hours.

Special ops was a few days as 2 player needed.

Thing is tho can they fit them all on a disc for longer games?

They're like films now! There's loads of games that last weeks/months, you're just buying the blockbuster stuff.

I have been playing GTA4 casually for about a week and a half and I am about a third of the way through it already. The cut scenes are ridiculously long. I barely watch them now and just skip them. I want to play a game not watch a pixalated movie.

AWESOME game mate, i remember the original half life, sent my head spinning using a projector & fresnal lens in front of my face with that game! (amazing feeling like your in the game, try it) then half life 2 came out, omg! awesome graphics, love them both!!! laugh

The single player/campaign is only a small part on a lot of games with a large amount of development going into online multiplayer.
Less and less games having the 1-4 players (on the same console/tv) option. Which is a shame if you are socialble and have real friends wink
