I agree, I know a few people who have played a few hundred hours in total between those three games. I guess devs don't put content in huh? Oh and did Mario really have content? Not really. You could complete that in no time if you knew the shortcuts. In short, the gameplay of a game is what you make of it alot of the time.

I suppose i naturally expect, being a programmer, for people to be atleast as practical as me. But without wishing to cast a stereotype, i hear stories from family members about administrators and receptionists that they have to work with. These people shouldn't really be employed to use a computer.

Yes you are correct about my point. I should have been more clear, unpredictability in the service of ADSL from BT as a whole was meant to be the focus of my original point. In my experience it just wont work for real time stuff unless you are in the ideal location etc, which most people arn't.

The problem with ADSL is that the service deteriorates rapidly the further away from the exchange you are. So while this might be ok for browsing web pages, i have had profound problems with services such as iPlayer, youtube et al. Also, unless you ring up BT and request it, you basically get lumped with a poor ping (approx 40-100ms based on the service i am getting now) which is hopeless for anything real time.
