I disagree. It's easy to be focused and challenged on a game for more than 55+ hours. I routinely spend more time on games than that. Even ones advertised at 30 - 40. Once I get through the sidequests, exploring every nook and cranny and killin the baddies it normally takes over 55 hours. The game just has to have a good story and make sure that the character never achieves godhood.

Now a 55+ hours long main story line might be a little difficult to pull off. I wouldn't want to imagine even trying to make a game like that. It would take years and years to make.
Despite all my rage.
I'm still just a rat in a cage.
