As for the data, the game-play hours reported for Super Mario Galaxy 2 over the last year are pretty good, though I think it's safe to say that SMG2's reported hours will not get close to Super Mario Galaxy's current number of reported hours, which is more than 50 million "Total Hours".
Again, while I have not played SMG2, I think the average hours reported "Per person" are about what I would expect it to take to beat the game, though I am not sure.
If any of you have played and beaten Super Mario Galaxy 2, how many hours did it take you to complete? If you beat it once, have you found yourself going back to play it again, or perhaps just to collect everything?
