Comment Exactly why i like the Mario Games (Score 1) 462

6 to 15 hours is the sweet spot for me. The Mario games are great examples of the right amount of challenge and time invested into the game.

I used to LOVE the Zelda games, back when i could figure them out and finish one of them from start to finish in 10 hours. The newest one on the Wii though I never got all the way through. The puzzles were more challenging than I wanted, there was too much travelling, and the game was WAY too long.

I want puzzles, but i don't want to spend an hour having to figure them out or wandering back and forth across the level trying to find something the developer hid under a rock just to make the game last longer.

I'm currently playing Dante's Inferno and its a good mix of mindless hack and slash and mindlessly easy puzzles.

Just be sure to turn off the root user, setup the SSL, and change the port number to something else. I also like to limit webmin to a list of known IP addresses via its admin interface AND in iptables.

Been using Webmin for longer than i can remember.
