I wish we had more of small bite-size FMs. I realized I don't have time to play grand multihour missions anymore... But nice 0.5-1h (1h max!) missions would fit perfectly to my evening schedule.
SpringheelIt depends on how often you get to play. Too many days in between and I'll forget all the significant story clues and locations.

AtomicaI imagine a lot of us are older/oldish gamers with more responsibilities than we used to have, meaning less free time. I ranted about this in the quest thread, but still, I'm a big believer in quality rather than quantity. Can be great if we have both (and the time), but I'd rather smaller games that pack in a lot of good shit than have it spread out with a lot of filler. Portal comes to mind.

demagogueOne thing I like about contest FMs, especially ones with tight space restrictions, is that it focuses authors to package a lot of gameplay in a little space. There's a kind of special art to it that makes them unique and fun to play. It might be good for authors to give themselves those kind of restrictions for a normal FM even without the contest.
