Forums - Gaming Discussion - How long does it take to beat this game?

Average for GTA vice city 30 hours? It takes like 10 hours to complete the missions? Of course you'll play it longer because it's a great sandbox game, but still :P

Which is why the list is a bit odd.... we can't make an average of what people say without knowing what they mean. I completed Vice City main story+missions in about 10 hours the first time... so I might have put that. The 3rd (and currently last) time I went through the story I did it in about 5-6 hours.... or I could state the number of hours I could spend on the game trying to do everything (jumps/packages etc)... which would be a different figure again.

I think the OP needs to have some sort of criteria to go by... like asking how long it took someone to complete a games main component the first time they did it.... still. Many games will still get a raw deal as some don't really have a main component, or else are not focussed on a central story.

"Kingdom Hearts - Average: 64 hours

Kingdom Hearts 2 - Average: 70 hours"

what? , i thought those games are really really short.
i beat them on hard (forgot what its name maybe hero mode?) and i didnt even pass 25 hours with all unlocks.



fallout 3 40 hours min????? are you crazy?? I beat the main story in less than 8 on my first playthrough. For 100% my game save is around 50 hours. Need to adjust those numbers.



Fact: Earthbound is the greatest game ever made

@PullusPardus

Actually, PE has been mentioned =P. I'm curious, did you play the Ex. Mode, or did you just finish the game at the first playthrough?

yeah when at the sephiroth battle i was at level 45 or something , but it was pretty low i was depending on luck and timing , he was very hard in proud mode, it toke me alotta tries before i managed it, i also always play actiony games on hardest difficulty just to get the full experience, so with time i got used to it =D



@PullusPardus

Kudos for you then, Sephiroth was a pain in the ass (even though KH1 sephiroth was way harder), and at level 45 i really believe it must have an hellish battle. I fought him when i was at level 80 or so, but I had spent some time farming items to synthetise the Ultima Keyblade before, so my levels shoot up quite fast in that process.

Damn, I was too fast, couldn't put it on the same post, so sorry about the double post.

Oh, missed that :p

But I think it's good to know how long it takes to finish a game without counting second playthroughs or having all the extra mini-games or sidequests included. Just the average amount of time needed to beat the game.

That is true. I can't exactly say how long the main story is, because I played main and side missions about equally. What I can say is, that 50 hours is a good average time for 100% completion.

Note: 50 hours MAX in Fallout 3 WITHOUT any DLCs.
