People speak of some drastic alteration in the market that means long games are no longer justified, but really the market has just expanded, and people are getting older.

There's a whole new generation of gamers who are spending hundreds of hours on games because they have the time to do so, much like we used to. Just because we, as enthusiasts or industry folk, and our friends are playing differently does not mean that another demographic hasn't taken our place.

A market will always exist for the more involved games, but there's a lot of people who are getting carried away with how the industry changes, that they forget the ways in which it has stayed the same.
