Sorry I took offense … because you are right. I even see it with the site I do reviews for that is not a 'labor of love' (which is how I feel about this place and GamerDad) - I write reviews about all sorts of games, but see some folks who won't do anything unless the game is free.

But to me the problem ends up at folks who are paid for reviews - because if they are getting $200 for a review, it doesn't matter if it was the 2 hour Nancy Drew DS game or the 80+ hour Witcher … it is the same money. And $100/hour and $2/hour are quite different, so there is only motivation to squish the play-time down.
