Tonight I finished it (well, completed the main story) and I have 96 hours and 2 mins on my saved game.
I have to say for me it's goty material, a stunning unputdownable game of the highest order! It rate it 9/10 if not more.
But I almost traded it after that first play.. It's a slow burner, the first few hours seem boring and the combat sucks. 12-20 hrs in and it's fun, 30-40 hrs in and it's awesome!
It's probably the most enjoyable rpg I've played in the last year or two and I plan on doing a second Playthrough with a different race after I've gone through my PS4 game backlog. (Currently: 3)
I have an OCD quality that makes me a completionist - and so I am trying to ignore my instincts and just go along the story line, but am frequently doing side quests and collecting things, etc. I have almost 70 hours and am still in Act 1.... Having a blast though. Definitely a very detailed game that can be played in a number of ways. I am playing a dual wielding rogue with Blackwall, Cole, and Vivienne - I try and change the characters around just to see different dialogs pop up. Hard to get rid of Cole though - he is just so bizarre and I like how he "outs" everyone with their secrets.
