Sorry if this has been answered before, I searched it up on the forum but didn’t find one on the topic-
I’m curious how people prefer their games. I have a game (or series) planned, and I’m also trying to decide how I want to break it up, or if I should just keep it as one. The pros for me with multiple games is that the games between tend to work as really good save points, and the story is longer (I don’t think I’ve ever played a one-game title that felt like a complete story), but I know that the wait time can be a killer.
- One very long game
- Multiple games (2-3)
ALSO: I’ve noticed that COG/HG games have gotten a lot longer over the years. I know that playthrough length and stuff also matters, but if you had to judge it only off of word count, what would you consider a good length of game?
- less than 100,000 words
- 100,000-200,000 words
- 200,000-300,000 words
- 400,000-500,000 words
- more than 500,000 words
- word count doesn’t matter to me
