I've recently heard that too. That just shocked me! There are some games that last longer than five minutes on the DC. Too name a few there is: NBA 2K (one of the best basketball games), MSR (a great racing game with loads of replay value), Soul Calibre (in my opinion the best 3D fighting game), Gauntlet Legends (though Gauntlet is better and yes it is on other machines), Codename Veronica (the best in the Resident Evil series), and Virtua Tennis (the best tennis game other than Super Tennis on the Snes! Al these games lasted me a lot longer than Shen Mue which I completed after about 15 hours play!
