Hours played?
How many hours played on this game do you guys have? Average playtime is 6 hours but that doesn't say anything to me.... I have somewhat of a system to see if a game is worth getting or not. So give away your times please :)

I haven't finnished the game but I can assure you it is well worth its price. If you want to play it again, do it. With lots of weapons, upgrades, tools etc. I think I would buy it if it was 50 dolars or more. Its so damn good!

Oooh! I almost forgot about the EPIC soundtrack, art like (lol) artwork and AMAZING storytelling I haven't seen for I while.

8 hours. Beat the game, and nothing more.

I have played 50 hours, and I am about halfway through my third playthrough. The game is worth playing at least twice, because the New Game Plus mode allows you to keep your upgrades from the first playthrough and continue to level up (the narrator also gets deja vu on your second playthrough, which is a nice touch). There are also two endings, so you can choose a different one each time.
Even if you only play through once, anyone who goes through it in six hours is doing it wrong. Getting through that fast would require ignoring pretty much everything but the required levels. But going through the Who Knows Where challenge areas gives you a lot of backstory, while also helping you get rich and level up, and thus get more awesome abilities. Doing those will take you a little time, since they do get quite challenging. You should also do at least some of the Proving Grounds areas, which will also add to playtime.

The Narrator is what really hooked me. So damn well executed.

5 hours, such a good game, one of the best soundtracks ever. The storyteller has the best voice ever and it perfectly fits. Epic game.

30 hours for 100% and 3 playthroughs.
First it was only the narrator that had me, but the more you play the better gets the gameplay itself, escpecially when you get the "real" weapons.

This is amazing! I usually say that a game is only worth its price if i play the game double the hours i payed. For example Bastion which cost: ~15 euro, i should be able to play the game ~30 hours without forcing these hours.
These rule only applies to titles which isnt as famous. Like i doubt i will play Assasins creed for 100 hours.

Worked so far!

I am just starting in the game, but this game IS worth getting. It's beautiful in all respects. I think this is one of the only games I've bought at full price on Steam, and it was well worth it. Even if you only spend ten hours through one playthrough and never touch it again... you will have gotten your money's worth.

I got the game when it was on sale last winter, so my hours racks up to 36. I just finished all the achievements, but will probably play more just to see if I can get top ten in the leaderboards for score attack haha. Its worth getting in all regards even if you only play it once. But I doubt it.
