1. I quite like the idea, but needs a lot more data points before it can be used as a reference.

  2. I’m *this* close to beating Minecraft. Just a couple thousand hours more.

    Indeed. Most of them have only one submission which makes it useless, they should have waited more time or polled more users.

  3. Options for filtering and sorting the data would be nice as well, yeah. That said, I love the idea.

  4. I’ve found this before, when searching for how long it would take to beat certain games and help my overwhelming backlog seem more managable. Unfortunately, as others have noted, 1-3 data points doesn’t do much. I feel like Valve could release a lot of this information via Steam user statistics.

  5. This is neat, but yes — could use more data. It would also be nice if there was some way to just download the numbers behind the interface so people could do some number-crunching on their own.

    Also, you’ve [yes you] have probably figured this out already, but it took me a while to: clicking on the name of each game gives a more detailed breakdown [eg, Deus Ex], including whether side quests were done, whether just the main quest was done, etc. Useful! I wish there was a way to see that from the main page.

  6. Epic avg time: takes almost 2 months to beat The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind assuming playing 40 hours a week.

    And yet, amazingly, it can be beaten in under five minutes.

  8. This is neat, but yes — could use more data.

    Then we better get busy submitting! We’ll only make the world a better place together folks.
