43 hours to finish Mass Effect 2? I took my time and got all the side quests in 32 hours.

Dante's Inferno for PS3 took me about 8:30 on normal, 9:15 when doing all the unlockable stuff like the Gates of Hell challenge.

Heavy Rain was about 8 or so hours on the hardest difficulty for one playthrough.. just an estimate, since the game doesn't record the time it seems.


I can confirm both of these. My HR play through took me 8 hours and 36 minutes on normal. Heavy Rain does give a playtime, I think it shows up if you hover over the save file. It took me about 5 more hours to go back in and get the platinum but mostly because I kept failing the Kamikaze trophy.

I passed Mass Effect 2 in about 35 hours. Eventually started getting bored with it so I didn't do all the side missions or even loyalty ones (missed 2 I believe).

Wow. That is impressive. I spent way more time then that and haven't even touched the DLC yet.

Guys, Halo 3: ODST does not take seven hours to complete. I did it in about four hours.


A lot of the times to just beat a game seem too high. MW2 only took me 4 hours on normal and I'm about to finish Mass Effect at 12 hours (and that's actually including about a dozen sidequests).

These are just estimates though, just to give you an idea.

Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey:

Personally took 50 hours to beat the game, but I did about half the side quests and got about half the total demons. If you rushed through the game you could probably finish it in about 30 hours and I estimate it would take about 80 to 90 hours to complete everything in the game (get every demon, finish every sidequest and get all the "achievements")

Not to hurt anybodys feeling but...

Some gamers are more casual and lack enough skill to beat side quest/missions quickly without rushing through it.

Or in other words... they lack the skillz to pay the billz.

(I'm no gaming god either, took me 8 hours+ probably to beat MW2 on Vet., never beat the first on Vet.)

If some times seem high and I get another time that is much lower, I will average the two or lower the original time, so the more people that contribute, the more accurate the times.

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

Took me 10.5 hours to beat God of War 3.

I just want to address something: Taking your time beating a game does not mean you suck (or "lack skillz" as someone said). I'm a damn good gamer, but I like to explore every nook and cranny when I play. I may not discover everything, but I'm very deliberate. It's how I choose to play. It doesn't make me worse of a gamer than someone who beats a game quicker.

Well, I didn't mean it like that... I'm not talking about skills but some people take their time to beat the game even if they're not doing the extras. So it might be a bit longer for those who just want a straight forward time.

If some times seem high and I get another time that is much lower, I will average the two or lower the original time, so the more people that contribute, the more accurate the times.


Good to know, that will provide more accurate times.

Platinum on Darksiders took me 24 hours (starting on the hardest difficulty). Probably a little bit longer than average, but not by much. (I did some grinding to level up my weapons about halfway though, instead of at the end of the game after they had naturally leveled up).


That's about what it took me. A lot of the extra time was spent grinding for the weapon level max achievement.

Castlevania: Order of Ecceslia - 10 hours to get the good ending, according to the game clock. Playing around with boss patterns and such probably added a few extra hours of gameplay total as well.

Panzer Dragoon Saga (SAT) - 15 hours, mostly everything
Kirby's Adventure (NES) - 3 hours, not many extras
Indigo Prophecy (PC) - 9 hours, basic playthrough

Infinite Space, first playthrough was ~58 hours in my saved game, probably 2 extra hours for losses, etc (was about 15 hours for Act 1, the rest for Act 2). Did every bar "side quest" I could find, recruited everyone I could in my playthrough, ended with over $1mil (grossly overestimated the cost of my end fleet, so could have shaved maybe a 1-2 hours off) and fleet of 1x Corsair and 4x Picaroons. Without grinding for my fleet, while reading everything, not doing the side quests, it'd probably be closer to 50 hours.

EX mode took about 9 hours, same fleet.

That's exactly how I am. For most if not all of the games I've beat that are on this list, I finished it in about double the time. But I do like to enjoy the scenery, do side quests, take time to upgrade characters. I played with a friend of mine who was all about fast playing the hell out of Borderlands. I've known people that lower the difficulty of a game just so they can finish quicker. That's not me. I like to:

take my time. Relax and take it slowly. You're still young, that's your fault. There's so much you have to go through. Find a girl, settle down. If you want, you can marry...oh hell, look what you made me do.

Anyone know approximately how long to pass Final Fantasy XIII? Looking for the time for a fairly straight through play time without too much side stuff.


It took me 43.5 Hours to beat Final Fantasy XIII. (I didn't do much grinding and I only did a couple of missions. I did fix Vanille's robot, but that didn't take long. Maybe 20-30 mins.)

Ouch, took that long to make and the game's that short, huh. Guess I'll wait to buy this one.

I can defiantly vouch the time for Infinite Space for DS. I did most side quests as well and my act one and act two hours are around 10+ hours since they gave you a big opening world at the beginning of the game. I kept getting lost, so I used a guide to figure out where I have to go for main story mode. I didn't need the guide for battles. It's easy enough already. My clock is slight less, but you have to account for me using a guide. I did grind for money to get 2 corsairs. I thought last boss was going to be really hard. But that was highly unnecessary, considering last boss use really stupid tactics.

Yea, I didn't use a guide for any of it, but I'm curious what your time was =P

My time was about 50 hours when I got my first Corsair. I got my first Corsair pretty easily since I saved a lot of money during the course of game. I only upgraded my ship when I was experiencing some difficulties with battles, which rarely occurs. I kept using one of the earlier ships with lots of hanger space for majority of the game. I did some grinding and moving my ship back and forth for docking gold to get second Corsair with upgrade modules for my entire fleet at 53 hours. Some of modules prices are crazy. The high tier parts cost more than ship.

White Knight Chronicles - ~10-15 hours for just the SP, depends how thorough you are, whether or not you skip any cutscenes, etc. Skipping all cutscenes and playing on the NG+ only took like 2 hours, so there's a huge variable here. HOWEVER, for online play, you can easily hit 500+ hours trying to "max out" - really depends on the group of people you play with, and which quests you do online. I'd say the average gamer who has beaten WKC has spent ~90 hours on it from start to finish, so you can represent that however you'd like.

It's that short? Maybe I will play it then. I'm used to 50-100+ hour SRPGs (minus Tenchi on SNES and Rhapsody) =P
