SC: Conviction campaign is 5 hours – Are developers getting lazy?

Some rather disappointing news to bring to those of you who are planning to pick up Splinter Cell: Conviction on the Xbox 360, as it has been reported that the single player campaign mode only lasts 5-6 hours.

An article over at IronstarMovement touches upon the worrying trend, that developers are seemingly beginning to neglect their responsibilities in the single player aspect, in favor of focusing on the multiplayer.

They also ask the important question: Are developers becoming lazy? From my point of view, I dont think lazy is a fair word to use, but then again – it must be pretty frustrating for gamers to spend $60 on a game, only to finish it the very same day.

Where do you stand on this? Do you prefer developers to focus on the single player or multiplayer aspects more? Left 4 Dead, Final Fantasy, Metal Gear Solid 4, Uncharted 2 can used as prime examples on this topic.

Have a read of the article in full and then let us know your thoughts on this.
