Every time I hear you mention Howard Stern I can't help but think about the episode of Futurama where Fry is standing in Old New York and can finally say what he had always been thinking, "Howard Stern is Over rated!!" Which of course is funny because Billy West (voice of Fry) was a frequent guest on Stern.
I've got to agree with Cheapy regarding games and length. I used to love putting in a ton of hours into a single game. But anymore I look at a game like Fallout 3 and think
, there is a LOT of content there. When I traded my DS Phat for a DSi at Game Crazy (thanks CAG) I got a set of coupons for one free rental a month for a year. I figured I should probably get something short enough that I could finish in just a few days. I've found that I've been having a great time powering through a lot of shorter games I wouldn't have bought otherwise. 6-10 hour games like Gears of War 2, Resident Evil 5, X Men Wolverine and a few others. I still have Lost Odyssey sitting on my shelf with a save sometime during disk two. It's a great game but it's so big and there's so much to it I just haven't had the drive to actually finish it.
