If you're not interested in AAA games only, you should know that Of Orcs and Men will be released at the end of September. Graphically, this new title looks pretty good overall, now whether or not the adventure will be worth it still remains to be seen. Here is a short video giving you a taste of the nice soundtrack composed by Olivier Derivière (Obscure, Alone in the Dark).
i'm a fierce supporter of niche games, which is why i'm willing to pay $50-60 USD on a module (a deep simulation of a single plane) for DCS. (53 minutes ago)
i don't have a problem paying full price for a 10-15h experience, but i know many do. I also wouldn't choose to play a game i was perhaps gonna spend a lot of time with based on if it was free or not. (57 minutes ago)
the 10-15h games could ofc be put into some netflix type service, not as the primary distribution i think, more like getting 1 year old movies on netflix, after they had their theatrical and video run (1 Hour ago)
Basically.. online-only PVP stuff works pretty naturally. Applying the same logic to a single player game is doomed to fail. (1 Hour ago)
