If you want my quick opinion on Resident Evil 8: Village, I’d say the game is really solid, well made, it’s fun, and certainly AAA quality. But, recommending is tricky. My first run on PC was about six hours. My subsequent runs on PS5 and Series X were even shorter at 5.5 hours and 4 hours respectively. Honestly, 6 hours is not much for a game I paid $70 for; I enjoyed it and felt it was a lean experience, but it doesn't change the fact that for that amount of money you can get A LOT more game. Not every game needs to be Persona 5 or Red Dead Redemption 2, but six hours is not much. Remember how much people freaked over The Order 1886’s length? Granted, you can get more out of repeated runs and more detailed runs where you collect all the doodads, upgrade the best weapons, and search every nook and cranny. That’s why this is all up your personal preference. While I’m ok with the price tag to length, considering the extremely high quality of the game, I don’t have any issue if you aren’t ok with it. If you need more gameplay time then so be it. There is no issue there. In my mind it’s the same evaluation that takes place when somebody is looking at a cocktail menu. Some people are OK paying more for the same quantity just because it’s a higher quality, while others would much prefer to buy a fishbowl and get a lot of bang for their buck even if it’s of a low quality. Depending on your circumstances, goals, and preferences, both of these are valid options. So if you look at the six hours for $70 that you’ll get with resident evil eight and are repulsed we have no disagreement. I would say just wait for a sale and enjoy it then. If it’s any consolation, I really enjoyed my time with the game and it was one of the most high quality and the lean experiences I’ve had with a AAA title in the last year. But with that said let’s get into it.
