inFamous will be “about quality”, not length, says creative director

Sucker Punch creative director Nate Fox has said “Look at God of War – it is an excellent game, an instant classic, and it’s only like seven hours long, GTA IV is 30 hours long, and people wanted more? That just tells you how excellent that game is.”

“It seems to me that it’s not about length, but about quality,” Fox continued. “And because I love both of those games, I hope that developers never try to shoot for a long game, but instead for the most fun they can pack onto the disc – at any length. That’s what we’re doing for inFamous.”

More after the jump

“You can expect to see some downloads from PlayStation Network closer to our release date,” he said. What about downloadable content following the game’s launch? “You’ll have to wait and see.”

Fox did confirm the game will feature Trophies, however. “We’d be complete and total jackasses not to support them,” he observed. “They are videogame crack and everybody knows it.”

    I always look for replay ability in the games I buy. To me only getting 12 hrs out of a $60 game is a waste of money.

    Quality and not length? Sounds like a premature excuse for a really short game to me.

    Lol well he does have a point. Mass Effect’s side missions were mostly a pain to do. Eventhough the main storyline was awesome. So adding in extra content that’s pointless or doesn’t add to the experience is a waiste of time for me.

    Send that info to sand-man he will put it on the blog, posting it in the comments section is wrong.

    A short game… with no online?

    Let’s look at the three best games out there:

    CoD4 – Short story mode, but it was awesome. Had multiplayer
    All GTAs – Long story mode, four had online
    LBP – Story line, online, unlimited supply of user generated content

    Longlivity, see? InFamous will be a miss for me I think

    Don’t sleep on Sucker Punch people and Assassins Creed was not a bad game, it just was repeative.

    @BigKenneth

    GTAIV – Long BORING story, Maybe the worst ONLINE

    I though that exact same thing! Other people didn’t though.

    I preffered the old style, less realistic and nore fun GTAs. That’s why I like Saints Row 2.
