    long-form

    What does "long-form" mean in the following context?

    They could understand a $50-billion global business for long-form games purchased on shiny gold DVDs and played on dedicated console hardware or high-end PCs. They could even understand when that same long-form experience was distributed via a fibre-optic cable to someone's home, using a service such as Steam or Xbox Live, rather than on a disc.

    Thank you.

    Re: long-form

    It means nothing to me but I don't follow video/computer games very closely.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: long-form

    If I had to guess, I would say it is a game with a long, drawn out storyline. Where you have a character and have to live through a variety of scenarios.

    Not something like Pac Man.
