It's not something I'm expecting...they said that they would tone down the difficulty a bit..I know there will be big improvements in AI,but the exclusion of some endings/scenarios is not good!

I didn't realise that was really even a big thing. I just thought that everyone except for a handful had this feeling of unease when they left a game unfinished for an unusual amount of time.

Ummmm, any game? I have clocked hundreds of hours on Skyrim, hundreds on pretty much any game from Bioware, I made sure I got every collectable in Gears 3, I have all the golden guns and am missing 3 clues in max payne 3, and I have a max level multiplayer character on the 100% complete Red Dead Redemption. If the game is good, it gets all the attention it deserves.

A good example is checking steam statistics for alot of games, you will soon find out that this person is actually speaking the truth and not just imagining things. I personally also have games I've never completed but that is mostly due to the games not really catching me into the story or whatever the game is about.

I forced my way through Shadow the Hedgehog.
I think I'll be able to handle Hitman.

Games are made for gamers. If only 20% of gamers will complete the game, it just means players don't think the game is worthy of investing a lot of time.
Instead of blaming the players, developer should be more considerate. There are a lot of games people will play again and again.
I have played Skyrim at least 3 times.

So basically it sounds like instead of giving a worthwhile experience of more than 5 hours they are just going to make the game frustratingly difficult so it seems like it's longer.

Don't think that is going to pay off.

LloydToS That was exactly my point though. Games get the attention they deserve, if only 20% of gamers finish your game, then either your product isn't up to snuff, or you are marketing to the wrong crowd. I have very few games I don't finish because I only buy things that interest me. The quote "it's not just for this game, it's any game" is incredibly overly dramatic. He acts like gamers all have short attention spans. It's not that we don't want to spend that much time on a game, we want to spend that much time on a QUALITY game we enjoy. Personally I am looking foward to this one a lot, and it will take up a majority of my game time until I complete it.

I guess you're right on the part where he says it's any game, since that is simply not true. A good example of this is Skyrim where this is perhaps more difficult to track, they did release playtime data a while ago showing a huge amount of players clocking at least 80hrs on the game.

Apparently this is going to be the most watered down Hitman game ever with the most 'on the rails' feel of all. The fact that they added "eagle vision" to quickly cheat your way into knowing where every enemy is is going to destroy replay factor by a lot, let alone the other elements of the classic series that they butchered. Not expecting much from it, tbh. Still going to test run it though.

Personally I actually have a number of games unfinished and it has nothing to do with the games not being enjoyable it's just I barely have time to play games these days amongst work and University. If I leave a game for over a month there is a high chance I forget what I was doing and have to start again from the beginning. That and I have the excessive compulsive disorder to collect everything before I finish. Example would be Assassins Creed which I spent more time trying to find flags than what I spent doing actual missions to the point I forgot the actual story (honestly not kidding, I was so concerned with hording that I forgot the actual plot line and what had happened.)
Although I must admit I've played a great deal of games I haven't completely due to not liking them. I for one didn't finish Dragon Age because it bored the hell out of me reading all that text. I don't mind developing a character via choices but that game pissed me off and literally had me falling a sleep from reading nonsense from NPCs. Still some people enjoyed it. The same goes for every other game, while some gamers will enjoy a title so much they are willing to put in over 200 hours of game time into it (Me for almost any JRPG) another person will play it for a few hours and simply dislike it.

I played through every single Metal Gear Solid game and that has more stealth aspects than Hitman. The reason I stopped playing Hitman is I didnt like the story and I didnt think the stealth gameplay was good I just played dressup and no one knew who I was. I never picked up another hitman game again. Needless to say I didnt complete the campaign. Maybe that is why only 20% complete the game?
