Say the game lasts an hour if you know exactly how to beat it and costs 4.99 EUR.
And you can't rent it.
Would you buy it if it's a cool game? Would you pay 5 EUR for a cool experience?
One thing I'd love to see in the future are simpler, episodic games that really focus on story and character development - and to sell each episode for something cheap, like 5 bucks. I think that'd be a win / win.
You'd get to play a short, but great game for a small amount of cash and if you liked it and want to know how the story develops further / develop your character further, you get the new episode for another 5 quid.
Would that business model be attractive to anyone here?
