Good start to the site. I'd recommend adding a couple of qualifiers to the games such as 100% complete or main story only since most game times will vary on these factors.


Thanks for the tip. We considered that when we originally set up the site but thought that it would work better if we kept it as simple as possible. It's hard to tell now, but when you click on a game to see the average game time you get a nice visualization of the times submitted, and our thought was that this system would give you a good idea of the variation in game play.

What I mean is, say you and I each play Mass Effect. I steamroll through to the end and finish it in 16 hours, you do every side quest and take 35. We both add our times - well this will affect the the graph of time lengths you'll see, and they'll probably be centered around our times - you'll see a bunch in the 15-20 range and a bunch in the 30-40 range. That will show you the difference in times depending on how involved you get into the game.

We also considered adding a difficulty field, and another field indicating whether this was a first playthrough or a subsequent playthrough, but decided against it.

Thanks for the tip

It would be great to have a catch. I know I can't throw as fast as you, but I think you would be impressed with my speed.

Really roughly you're talking about 15 hours. There are 26 or 27 mission and they take about 30 min each.

Its too bad you're still a prick with a stupid gimmick.

Someone should send Cheapy D a message, maybe he would be interested in having a whole area like this. Maybe even advertise this thread a little, and get a lot more people showing their times.

I beat The Saboteur in 9 hours without doing much of the side missions. I played it on the PS3, but it's also available on the 360.


No, no one likes your ideas! Anyway does anyone have a rough estimate of SMT: Strange Journey?

The first post says

Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey: 30/80

But personally I'm at 60 hours and I've not beaten it. I've fallen asleep a few times with the DS on though, then woke up and saved, so it probably added a few hours. I'm near the end though, and I keep using different monsters to obtain their formas, and not using a map (save for one time in the E-zone, cause of the stupid teleports).

Spider-man: Shattered Dimensions on PS3 - 11 hours on hard. I meandered a little bit, and got stuck on some protection missions and the last boss for a while. I probably died about 5 times on the last boss fight because of a glitch. The camera would change to some shot of nothing (under the stage). I couldn't move- eventually something would kill me.

One of the factors you are scored on is "completion time", and it looks like the highest rank is awarded for 20-25 minute completions. That means, 25 min x 14 levels = just under 6 hours would be the minimum.

PS3 - White Knight Chronicles - 30/600

Single player took 30 hours for me to beat. If you're going to play the multiplayer for any length of time though, you should play single-player a second time to get the special chests only available in new game+. Once that's done, the grind towards a platinum ends up at a nice round 600 hours.

Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions on 360: Took me 11 hours on normal, 74% completion, 121/180 challenges, 30/42 achievements for 550 GS.

I'm by no means an action game expert - average at best ;)

Shank on XBLA took me 4-5 hours, 10/12 achievements for 150 GS.

Glad I'm not the only one that falls asleep with their DS, padding my rpgs with sleepy hours.

I think the first one took me about 8-10 to get all the trophies. I would wiki it but I don't know shit about wiki. Want to help?

I don't know anything about how to create wiki's either, but I suppose I could Google it. I work in IT, but not a programmer or anything. Just standard desktop support type stuff.

It's something I've been thinking of for a long time, me and a coworker have talked about it a lot actually. No time this week but maybe next week I'll poke around and see what I could find out.

I wonder if the people who run CAG would be interested in hosting it. Maybe I'll make a thread about it in the Feedback section.

Edit: Thread created. Let's see what they say. :)

Cool, sounds good. I know there is a CAGWiki for stuff like trade-in vaules, maybe it would be easy to add it there.

Total time logged on DMC 4 (story) was close to 10 hours, and that's with the rest of Dante's missions to complete on Dante Must Die.
Still can't quite knock down Bloody palace, spent around 3 hours and died at stage 100 :(

Professor Layton Unwound Future took me 18:01 to see "The End". I had 153 solved.

Another hour to finish the rest of story mode, and another 2-3 hours for the bonus section. I used help on the parrot puzzles. So I guess 21-22 hours for 100%.
