    Is A 2 Hour Game Worth $18?

    I knew this was gonna be about firewatch aka "GooneyBeardMan simulator" before the click through. I am all for exploration and new gaming ideas, but for $18 you better provide something that is $18 of value to the average purchaser. Given what I have seen, this is a $5-$10 title tops.
