That reminds me...

A key difference back in the 8-bit to even 32-bit days was games back then typically did NOT have a save feature. You'd have get in everything in one sitting. In such a case, half an hour to 4 hours (and perhaps even beyond) would've been ideal.

The same games that have been ported to play today, or clones of them, can be saved on-the-fly, enabling you to tackle the game in much smaller chunks at a time.

Did a day-pass at a vg lounge. I've done these before. I've also done the math before. If I can get in more than 8.2 to 8.33 hours of gaming in, then it pays for itself. As I mentioned upthread, when you game for that extended time, you'll be taking breaks, but it's not unlike if you were paying a la carte via actual hours (logging back in is a cumbersome since I need to reload the game, and reset up "minimal profiles").

After around the 11-hour mark, you "feel it". Not unlike the AYCE (all-you-can-eat) buffet, they know there are limits. Even then, if you stay THAT long to game, some folks will end up buying food and drinks from them*



* they let you bring outside food. Nothing wrong with deluxe noodle soups and Hot Pockets. However, I'd much rather pay a moderately more amount of money for real/better food options in all.
