Full poll title: How long would it probably take you to complete a 40-hour single player game?

I voted for "One to two weeks, I'll put in a few hours a day, as long as I'm enjoying it." Though there is an occasionally period where I'm rotating between 2 games.

Easily over a month. I rarely find the time to play for long stretches, the game would have to have grabbed me at exactly the time I can give it the TLC I'd want.

One to two weeks, I'll put in a few hours a day, as long as I'm enjoying it

But that's only considering the main story. If the game is good enough, then I'll milk it for all it is worth. Side-quests, equipment, secrets, movesets, items .. I'll try to get as much out of it as I can. And depending on the game and how much time I can put in it each day, that may take a month or two.

Overall, it doesn't matter how long it takes me to complete the game. As long as I'm enjoying myself, that's all that matters.

Over a month.

I game every day 1-4 hours sometimes more. But I rotate between many games. If the game is really really good I can complete it way shorter of course.

About a week, maybe under depending how much I play. More interest (getting sunk into the story for example) then I'll play a little more than usual.

Depends, typically 1-2 weeks, unless I'm really loving the game, then I'll put a ton of time in to it and beat it in a few days.

Depends on the game. I don't play 40-hour games usually, I prefer 200-1000 hour games. But yeah, probably 4-6 days to 40 hours for a game I'm enjoying.

It has been a while, it could take me as long as a year if I were to try one today.

It depends on the game honestly, sometimes a few weeks, or sometimes it will take me well over a month.

Tales of is a perfect example of a game series that takes me forever to finish their games because I stop playing much after halfways through.
