Thoughts:
I find it interesting that Super Mario Galaxy 2's average hours "Per person" are around 20 hours of game-play.
I do not own Super Mario Galaxy 2, and I have not played it; so I don't know how many "Total" hours it should take a person to complete.
If it is around 30 hours, I wonder if that's where it will end up averaging like Super Mario Galaxy is right now; or if people will go back and spend many more hours collecting all the stars and replaying the levels.

Questions:
If you have played and beaten the main campaign in Super Mario Galaxy 2, have you found yourself going back to play the game again?  If you have collected all the stars already, about how many hours did it take you?

  1. Well, I can't answer your question because I haven't gotten SMG2, yet. But by golly, as soon as I'm done this summer session, I'm droppin' some birthday money on that bad boy!

    I can, however, predict that I will complete everything that game has to throw at me. I did the with SMG. Squeezed every challenge I could from that game, and I still go back for more.

    Thats how I roll with games though. I focus on them and stay with them, long after the gaming media has moved on. I like owning games.

    It's okay, Monster Hunter is probably keeping you(and me) busy!

    "I can, however, predict that I will complete everything that game has to throw at me. I did the with SMG. Squeezed every challenge I could from that game, and I still go back for more."
    If you squeeze everything out of Monster Hunter Tri, does that mean you are going for the highest level online?

    I'm like you, in that I stick with games.
    I don't buy many new games in a year, so I enjoy the ones I do get.

    Thanks for the comments as normal! Greatly appreciated...are you scheduled for any Monster Hunting this week?!
