600+ pages????Are they nuts?

Could someone please tell me why there are 600+ page source books being written?
The Worlds Largest Dungeon is out of control. I can’t say if I like it or not yet but I would say that while its kind of a good idea there needs to be some more going on as far as story goes.

Now I see the new book from Monte Cook, Ptolus.
I love the stuff this guy works on, I mean I have yet to see something of his I have not liked. I can see where he is going with this new project as well. While it would be nice to have everything in one book and loads of great stuff (check out the previews) I think this is a bit much.

More and more I am seeing the pricing on books and all the other stuff and I can honestly say that there is no way I would have ever been able to afford to play RPGs back when I was 14. Even with the money I make now I can’t see spending that much money.

Is there anyone who agrees with me on this or am I just old and cheap?
