I've seen a lot of chat recently about what you should expect for your money when buying a full price game.
Take the game of the moment for instance, Titanfall, it offers no single player campaign, instead sticking with a 'Classic' Online mode. Now to be fair, even this mode is missing quite a few of the standard features you'd expect from a full price multiplayer title, yet still people seem to love the gameplay so much that they feel the cost is justified.
The same is true on the single player side of things. inFamous for instance offers a 12 hour campaign and while it's likely that it'll have some replay value, chances are that those playing a FPS like Titanfall will probably end up putting more hours in.
So what is value for money? The Call of Duty series may be the game to hate on at the moment, but to be fair it includes a fully featured multiplayer package and a campaign and therefore offers quite a lot for your cash. The same could be said of Battlefield.
The question is, do you feel you are getting enough? If you purchase a game and get a month or two out of it do you feel it's money well spent? Is it any wonder that titles such as Call of Duty, FIFA and Battlefield are the most popular titles? After all they do seem to keep people hooked over a longer period of time.
What do you think?
Our Titanfall review goes live later today.
