Is it a horrible thing that Call of Duty and Crysis campaigns are 6 hours?

I will never pay $60 for a 6 hour game.

Yes and no....I voted for "Yes it's horrible" but I feel that a six hour campaign done brilliantly is better than a twenty hour campaign that's just good. Problem is, they don't *have* brilliant short campaigns anymore because they've invested so much time into the multiplayer.

If the single player were the meat of the package, yes that would be disappointing. But people also have to remember those kinds of experiences don't lend themselves to being overly long.

they aren't single player games so no.

Fail much?

Go back and play the first 2 CoD games and tell me they're "not singleplayer games".

For CoD no, because most people buy it for the MP these days. SP is just meant as a fun little diversion for a few hours.

Crysis is a bigger problem because SP is their main sell.

So I couldn't answer this poll because each series needs a different answer.

Crysis campaigns are 10x better then any CoDs.

Crysis 1 is not 6 hours long... It's 10+

Crysis 1 isn't 6 hours
Crysis 2 is definitely not 6 hours (it was easily twice that)
Crysis 3 isn't six hours either unless you insist on speed running it.
