As I stated earlier, when we added fast travel, that made the game quite a bit shorter. Another thing, if you die, it does not record the time spent. So the game time in minutes is really very inaccurate of how long you've actually been playing. That was only added as a differentiater for game saves.
On the testing, we had about 3 weeks to test the game, and the majority of the issues that you guys are experiencing now, like the North Aven bug or the huge armor, did not come up during testing, otherwise we would have fixed it before release. There is a big difference when you release the game to thousands of people (especially when its a big open world game) vs. our small team of trusted testers. One of the main goals during testing was making sure noone leaked the beta out to pirate sites - so we had to make sure we had a small team of people that we really trusted.
