10 Long Single-player Games to Keep You Occupied in Quarantine

How to spend the quarantine? If you have too much free time and aren't sure what to do with it, playing video games is probably one of the best ways to keep you entertained. This time, we look at single-player productions that are really, really long.

Divinity: Original Sin 2

  1. Reason to play: this is an outstanding role-playing game, now available for good money
  2. Completionist hour count: 143 hours
  3. Dollar to hour ratio: $0.31

Two years before Disco Elysium lit up the hearts of RPG fans, the genre was enthralled with another production, Divinity: Original Sin 2, from Belgian Larian Studios. This is an extraordinary game, which serves as great proof that consistently developing a good idea in collaboration with a dedicated community can produce a truly magnificent game.

Praising Divinity: Original Sin 2 is the exact opposite of beating a dead horse, so I won't be wasting your time. Suffice it to say, that the game offers a huge world to explore (divided into several large locations, somewhat different in atmosphere and landscape), some fantastic quests (with Larian's hallmark humor), huge interactivity, and one of the best turn-based combat systems we've ever had in RPG. The only issue I have is the plot, and that's only because it's not as good as the rest of the game.

Also not that apart from being a leviathan of a single-player game, Divinity: Original Sin 2 also features a satisfying four-player coop. It lets you complete the story campaign almost exactly as if you are playing it solo with all the quests, characters and plot twists except in the company of your friends.
