Roleplaying games: They take a long time to play.
Everybody loves to hear a developer make stuff up about how long it takes for a game to be beaten, and BioWare's Ray Muzyka has kindly obliged, boasting that Dragon Age: Origins will take over 120 hours to complete. Apparently, it took him five days of straight play to achieve 90% completion ... the nerd.
"On one of the play-throughs I spent 120 hours," he claims. "Two hours a day for 60 days, 90 percent of the game, according to the telemetry. And I loved it. Every minute of it. I couldn’t wait to come home. After about ten hours of gameplay, every day I was talking about coming home and I played it for two or three hours, or whatever time I had free, and play it to the early hours. Luckily I don’t sleep as much as my wife. I’d stay up till after midnight and play it after she was asleep."
Ray is now divorced, probably.
Dragon Age: Origins is going to be a great game, and you're all going to have to accept that sooner rather than later. I'm certainly looking forward to it, even though I feel my wife facepalming over the sleepless nights I'll be spending with this thing.
