How do you decide if a game is worth it's price tag? Some people feel that they have to get a certain amount of hours for the money spent, which is certainly understandable considering that new games can cost $60. Other people feel that if a game is good enough, it doesn't matter how many hours it is. I tend to fall in the middle. If I am buying a full price game, I am hoping that I will get a lot of Time Out of it. That doesn't necessarily mean that it has to be a long game. A game like New Super Mario Bros can be realistically beaten in less than 10 hours, but there is a lot of replay value to try new things and collect all the secrets. Another example is Pokemon where the main story isn't that long, but I know I will be putting in a lot of time after I complete the main storyline.
