>I fucking hate zoomers and this mentality that they have. This is a huge reason why modern games suck in of itself.
It's unsustainable, but how do you fix it? Money is a limited resource for most people, so people aren't going to spend $50-$70 on a short game no matter how good it is. There are plenty of good, short games that are either indies or have been out long enough to be cheap. When a person can spend money on something playable for ages like Minecraft, Elden Ring, Skyrim, etc. that sets an expectation that if someone is setting aside hard earned money for a video game, said game better add A LOT of value to ones library on it's own so that the buyer is entertained for a long time without buying another game.
