All games can be finished under 5 days, most even 2 hours.
Umm... What now? Make your mind up mate. Besides, you and I and everyone else in the world knows Aftershock can't possibly be completed in 2 hours. In fact I have a stack of 40 odd games next to me that I'm yet to complete and frankly if it was possible to complete any of them in less than 2 hours they'd already be on the legendary completed pile
I recently finished Dungeon Siege after 40 hours of playtime and that left me just as bored as AS, probably more so as the only thing to do is point, click, heal. At least Aftershock had some depth, even if it wasn't enough to keep it interesting from start to finish. The shortest game I played recently took me 6 hours and I think you'll find between 6-8 hours is a pretty widely accepted length for a 'short' game. This is the kind of playtime you can expect to get from a title which is aimed primarily at online gamers, the singleplayer campaigns don't need to be as full of content to keep players interested in such a situation.
So I don't know where you're shopping for games but if you can find me a retail title with a campaign that lasts less than 2 hours I'll give you a cookie...
