$1 should be like 5 hours or more.
$10 should be unlimited replay value.

Quality is more important than quantity.

A great game is priceless; a bad game is worthless.

I dont care how long a game is as long as I feel like it was worth the price, in terms of enjoyment.

I paid a dollar for angry birds and that gave me more playtime than the ten dollars I paid for some other games.

It's all relative, I don't buy every game thinking of how long I'll be able to play it for.

Who the hell cares..as long as I'm getting a couple of hours for a 6.99$ and up game it's fine..5 hours is just fine, maybe I'll get lucky and get a lot more. RPGs usually last forever even though they generally vary in cost..each of them take about 15-25 hours to finish.

A one dollar game? I probably won't play it more than an hour unless it's something special or has multiplayer. Quality over quantity always. I'd pay 9.99$ for another game like Dead Space even though it only lasted less than four hours, and I don't plan on replaying it.

I hate how iOS gamers think that they're entitled to long games for 10 dollars. I've bought many, many psp games for 40$-50$ that have lasted about 6-8 hours. Many games on the ps3 follow suit, except they generally cost 60$ each. The complaints about pricing on the iDevice really disgusts me. Reading the reviews on the appstore and even some here on TA is like wacking myself over and over again with a mallet. Actually, the people on the appstore think they're entitled to long games for anything over 0.99$, let's not even mention anything higher.

Exactly what I was thinking... Quality over quantity people, I'd rather pay for a game that's short but is very fun, rather than a game that is long but not so fun. Though Of course having both is pretty great
