C'mon... easy or hardest of hard modes, the game doesn't magically get any longer. There isn't all this new content and levels that just pop up because you're on hard mode. Only thing that changes is the damage you take, deal and amount of deaths. I'm sick of hearing the hardmode copout excuse. It does not make the game longer, the destination is the exact same distance as it is in super easy mode -- it just slows your trip down. That's all there is to it.
Stop using it as a crutch to defend short game purchases.
It takes a true sophistocrat, like myself, to bring about total change to gamefaqs--you all love my judicious topics & the debate I bring. PSN:sophistocrat
Stop using the "length is the only thing that determines quality" copout.
Stop using it as a crutch to defend long game purchases.
Length doesn't make a game, game play does. If a game has great game play, it's 10x better on higher difficulties cause they push me to my limits to see what I got. No amount of length will ever be a substitute for that.
