Getting into The Secret World. I always enjoy MMOs immensely at first but it doesn't take long for the lustre to fade, so we'll see what happens.
Still, Anarchy Online is the only one that kept me for longer than a couple of months, so if anyone can do it, Ragnar Tørnquist can.

It's easily one of my favourite final boss fights ever. All the way down I feared it would be just some mob with massive stats and I'd have to dance around him for hours without challenge but in the end it managed to be not only unique but it also plays to the strengths of the movement system. It's probably one of the biggest WTF moments in recent gaming history and I fear not too many people actually saw it and gave up long before. You are missing out.

Damn you kids, wife, work, social life... damn you all !
I need a 36hours per day card !
Well then don't buy so many games if you can't complete them lol :D
... I take the lives of a few to protect the lives of many. I commit acts of war to preserve the greater peace. I take no joy in killing, but make no mistake; I'll do what needs to be done. Because it's my job. It's my duty. My name is Sam Fisher, and I am a Splinter Cell.
Starting from this year, I'm going to try a system of not buying single player games on release. This gives them plenty of time to have added content, fixed any issues and so on and so forth. Multiplayer games, or those with a heavy MP contingent, I'll probably buy closer to release. Not just an exercise in saving money, because I inevitably can do with this, but it also keeps in check those games I absolutely want, as opposed to those I just got caught in the hype with, as well as the fact that it means I can put a real effort into clearing my backlog.
That's been my philosophy for the last two years, works very well. I'm happy to amend it for games which are cheap and not going to have DLC added, like say Bastion or Lone survivor, but otherwise I play a year late as it were and get most games GOTY for about half their original price. Keeps you out of "current" chat and development is the only downside but I don't really care about that.
Yeah, I generally don't see the point in buying SP games on release. Purchasing late means getting a more polished product at a cheaper price, while also information on the quality of the game is more available. It's also good to put off playing the game until the DLC blitz is over. This really only comes at the expense of the launch hype. I generally buy games about 80-90% cheaper than launch price.
To be honest, those 100 hours are according to Steam. You could knock a fair bit off that as I used to leave the game running in the background while I did other stuff, but it was still a good chunk of time spent on it.
I'm also a very slow player in just about every game I play. It took me 40 hours to beat Darksiders but the average on howlongtobeat.com is about half that.
