this guy has clearly never played an RPG worth owning. That being said, if a game has a short gameplay time from start to finish, it better have one HELL of a replay value WITHOUT relying on multi-player to give it lasting value/ownership. Such games are few and far between. I refuse to plunk down full retail pricing on a game I am going to play through only once, unless I know that come hell or high water, I WILL be playing the ever loving hell out of it before it goes back on the shelf. too many games rely on multi-player to give a game replay value nowadays. it feels like game developers aren't even trying to make a solid title without it and that's why my game collection isn't larger than it already is. its not that I don't like multi player, as I do own games like Counter-Strike, Quake 3, Left 4 Dead, Rainbow Six Vegas 2, etc. its just that sometimes I want a little more than that for my money.
