If you are anything like me, your gaming time takes a back seat to other priorities in life. Family, career, and other hobbies reduce the number of gaming hours in a week. This means that the games we play need to be significant enough to not waste the time we have. When I’m looking at the next game to add to the Cache or to begin playing, I not only look at reviews and some gameplay impressions, but I’m also concerned with how long of an investment of time I will have to make.
The place I turn for the time to complete a game is HowLongtoBeat.com. The website crowdsources completion times from thousands of users, delivering data such as time to beat the main story, completionist times, and total (repeated plays or multiplayer). Combined with reviews and impressions from around the internet, I can use these times to plan my next game or purchase.
