In your opinion, how long is too long for a game? Whether it’s simply finishing off the main story or getting that elusive Platinum trophy, how long are you willing to put into a game to see the completion percentage tick up to 100%? Is 500 hours too long? According to large swathes of the internet, yes. It is.
This conversation is on everyone’s lips thanks to a misguided tweet from developer Techland the other day. It explained that Dying Light 2 will take ‘at least 500 hours to complete’ if you wanted to see everything the title had to offer (including various dialogue trees, different endings, all collectibles and so on).
These numbers are revised from a previous tweet from the company that noted “a regular player should finish the story and side quests and do quite a lot of exploring in less than 100 hours, so don’t worry!”
