Poker Club - 10 Longest Single Player Experiences Of 2022
Well, we've got you covered with this list of 2021 single-player games with decent length in no particular order, and it's also worth pointing out that some of these games aren't just like the regular games you've heard about all year. We also wanted to use this list as an opportunity to talk about some games we haven't mentioned enough, so keep that in mind to set expectations: A lot of these games aren't like Skyrim with endless open worlds, but here we went with personal experience, online opinions, and how long to beat.
Com, for references, and these should satisfy you anyway. Let's get started with number 10.
Sherlock holmes: chapter one
Sherlock Holmes Chapter 1 is a game you may not have heard of or really had on your radar, but it should take you around 25 hours. We're going to mention it many times in this article. A lot of that time depends on what type of player you are.
Sherlock Holmes Chapter One takes what the previous Sherlock Holmes games did and really kind of turns it on its head and adds an open world, which doesn't seem like it makes sense for a Sherlock Holmes game, but here you do have the opportunity to really explore, find clues, get engaged with this world, and find some pretty engaging side quests.
It's one of those games that has side quests that you're actually going to want to check out. This is a younger Sherlock Holmes. They're going for like a different vibe here. It's him in his earlier days exploring the Mediterranean islands and the city of Cordona, and he's a bit more of a badass. But still, these Sherlock Holmes games are massively underrated and pretty cool, and if you're looking for an interesting new one to jump in with, it's this one: Chapter One .
Far cry 6
Now next, over at number nine, let's talk about Far Cry 6. This one is a little bit more like one of the obvious ones on the list because it's a Far Cry game.
It's a massive open world, riddled with side quests, things to collect, things to do, and your time can vary, but you know, ultimately. When you're in a far cry game, you're going to spend a lot of time. The average time to beat this game is around 35 hours, but you can easily squeeze a lot more out of that just because Yara is a pretty interesting tropical location with a big city and tons of different little areas.
Granted, it's all a tropical setting, but they managed to vary it up here and there, and it's worth checking out. Personally, we set it in our "before you buy" article. I found Far Cry 6 to be a lot more fun than Far Cry 5 or Far Cry New Dawn, which a lot of people forgot about. This one is possibly worth checking out, especially if you've been burned out on the Far Cry formula for a while.
This one might be fun enough to get you back into it.
Pathfinder: wrath of the righteous
Now for number eight, we have Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous. A game on consoles, but I think it is best played on a PC. The average time to beat this thing is around 120 hours if you're doing the main quest and most of the side quests, which you'll probably do and you'll probably grind through a lot of them because the game can get pretty challenging, and that's where some of the length lies, but where the true length really comes from is the fact that it's just one of those big ass isometric rpgs.
Think of a divinity original sin type thing. If you've played that, you know what you're getting into here. You're getting into massive worlds with tons of interesting dialogue, fun side quests to pursue, different ways to build your character, and things to find. There's just a lot of cool stuff in this game.
The gameplay aside, just design-wise, look-wise, and art-wise, if you like big old fantasy RPGs and you like them a little bit more independent. Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous is definitely worth checking out, especially for the fact that it'll keep you busy for quite a while, probably the most of any of the games on this list.
Shin megami tensei v
Now Next, over at number seven, we have Shin Megami Tensei Five, a game which admittedly we haven't highlighted enough. This game ranks throughout 2021, but the average time to beat this one is around 63 hours. The gameplay, which to some people is just truly comfort food, and the obviously very different Tokyo they have here, is a really good setting for exploration.
This is a very unique spin on these games, especially if you've played the persona games but you've never played the shimagami tensei games. You're probably going to find a lot to like here. This is a good starting point, and the way you explore and you bounce between these different biomes and you slowly build out these specialized teams and collect things.
Of course, you're going to find yourself sinking a lot of time into this one on your Nintendo switch. It was a good year for JRPGS, and Shin Megami Tensei is definitely one of the ones worth highlighting.
Tales of arise
But over at number six, we also have tales of another jrpg. It's worth highlighting that the average time to beat is around 58 hours, and that's just because this is a dense game.
You know, in a lot of ways it feels like a very traditional jRPG, with small little areas with loading screens in between and towns and hubs, but it's just so interesting that this game gives you tons and tons of lore and stuff to read and people to talk to really learn about this unique world they've built out now.
Tales of the Rise is its own contained story, so if you haven't played any of the previous Tales games, that's fine. If it sounds very straightforward, you know, from presentation to gameplay and what you're seeing on screen, yes it is, but it is still so incredibly compelling and it's one of our favorite games of the year .
Monster hunter stories 2: wings of ruin + monster hunter rise
Next, over at number five, let's talk about the Monster Hunter series because it had two big releases this year and they'll take up a lot of your time.
The first is Monster Hunter Stories: 2 Wings of Ruin. The average time to beat this is around 53 hours, and if you've played the previous Monster Hunter Stories games, you understand what you're getting into. They are dense and just really monster hunter games in general, because also this year we had Monster Hunter Rise, which the average time to beat is 44 hours, but with monster hunter games, you can just spend so much time building and grinding out your characters, and that's where the fun really lies.
It may not be the longest or most content-rich of the monster hunter games, sure, but still, every single one of those hours is intense and fun and you're always growing and you're always learning and you're always figuring out a new enemy type or you're always gaining some new piece to craft a new piece of armor and it's just good all the way. If you haven't played a monster hunter game, Rise is a good place to start, so good luck, have fun .
