Life is too short to get stuck in a boring game. The phrase "100-hour RPG" sounds wonderful, doesn't it? But when you're 80 hours in, you've mastered all of the systems, and you know there's still a solid Earth day of time left before the credits, it ain't so great. While we love big games that give you a lot of entertainment for your buck, it has to be said that some games really overdo it. That brings us to this week's PCG Q&A. Which game is just too damn long? Let us know your answers in the comments. Wes Fenlon: Dark Souls 2Dark Souls feels like a fine sculpture that began as a massive slab and was carved into a work of art, most of the stone ground away until only the shape within remained.

There are unsurprisingly a huge amount of Ready Player One Easter eggs to be found in Steven Spielberg's adventure movie. Based on the book of the same name, the film follows the adventures of pop-culture obsessed protagonist Wade Watts (whose “Gamertag” is Parzival) as he escapes into a pop-culture obsessed virtual world named Oasis. The film’s plot follows Wade uncovering the secrets and mysteries of this virtual escape, as he and millions of other individuals hunt the creator of Oasis’s Easter egg that he left in the game right before he died (which if found, allows someone to inherit the Oasis and half a trillion dollars worth of shares for the company behind Oasis). It’s an exciting and simple premise, one which the movie uses to its advantage, allowing the story and characters to take a front seat surrounded by a cacophony of mass-market icons.
