“Is it worth it?” That’s the question I’ve encountered when I mention that I’ve completed The Order: 1886. The topic of video game value is more subjective than most of the console war ramblings that take place across various message boards. But even so, there are still a massive amount of people who seem to believe that there are guidelines in place that determine what a sufficient amount of video game content is. It’s confusing to say the least, and almost as if there’s some universal-yet-unspoken standard for how much content a video game should have before it’s worth sixty bones. According to many critics, press and consumers alike, The Order: 1886 fell far short of that unofficial standard.
On this week’s Nerdist: Play, we’ll be entertaining a question that is very much subjective in nature: what makes a game worthy of a $60 purchase? Are you into easily consumable, short single-player experiences? Or do you require your game have at least 20+ hours of content within it to justify your purpose? Was The Order: 1886 really an unworthy experience? We’re talking about all of that right here, so be sure to slap your thoughts down in the comments below.
