Infinity Ward on Modern Warfare 2's Length

Dev Defends Modern Warfare 2 Length on IGN hears from Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling about the length of the campaign in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, which they speculate is not likely to be longer than the approximately six hour campaign in the first Modern Warfare, in spite of the game's premium pricing (thanks Ralph). Bowling tells them: "We try and focus on the experience we're trying to deliver, and we really let the story dictate how long the game is." When asked about the criticism of the length of the first Modern Warfare, Bowling says: "We never go into development saying 'We're going to make a 20 hour game because people want a 20 hour game' we want to deliver an intense experience where you walk away and go 'wow, I want to play more'."

I'm so sick of the "old man with a job" argument.

Yeah, it's pretty weak. There's no time limit to playing games. You don't have to beat a game within a week. If you want, you can take a month. Maybe even a year. You can play multiple games at the same time too. The truth is, it's not about free time, it's about attention span. People like to make excuses for their shorter attention spans by claiming that they have no free time. Really, though, that's just a load of crap.
