Time Is On My Side

Speaking of game elements that are ephemeral, have you ever noticed how weird "playing time" is with games? I've played 30-minute games where I've been like, "Gee, that felt a bit long," and I've been engrossed in games where 2 to 3 hours have simply and delightfully melted away.

I want to pontificate more here, but – unlike my precious "choices/feelings in games" post – I have nothing specific to point to. So I'm curious if this is just my personal weirdness when it comes to timekeeping, or if others feel the same way. Feel free to share your thoughts and experiences on the forums.
