Thoughts on Game Length and Difficulty

I was browsing Rampant Games today and came across a great editorial called Games – Too Big, Too Hard?, which was itself a response to an article by John Davison of Gamepro. The idea is that while gamers will always say that they want bigger and harder games, what they do is quite different. In short, once you start observing their habits rather than just asking them about it, you find that gamers tend to play games for 4-5 hours before giving up. Most of us buy games, play them for awhile, then stick them on the shelf without completing them.
