The statement I was replying to was saying that movies are intrinsically better value than games.
Thats partially my point, while a given game or movie could be layed or watched for X more hours then the minimum, there is in fact a minimum time which either one takes to get through.
Which is why I noted that the 2 games you mention have been finished in or around the time-frame [6 hours iirc] the other poster talked about.
personally I agree that generally games are better value entertainment over time because I and most other people don't play them to win in the least amount of time possible.
though that could also partly be because IMO 99% of movies suck.
