The longer, the better? If you think so, we've prepared a list of some of the longest single-player games that will keep you engaged for weeks or months.
The markers of a good game can be its various elements. For some, it will be an engaging storyline, while others will focus on beautiful visuals or unusual gameplay solutions. There are also players who want to immerse themselves in the game for dozens or even hundreds of hours, exploring the world depicted in it, completing additional tasks and discovering all possible secrets.

WHERE DID WE GET THIS DATA?
All time estimates provided by us for completing games described here are from HowLongToBeat. On the aforementioned website, many players can boast how many hours it took them to complete a given game. We've considered options such as completing the story itself or beating a given game 100%. The number of users of the service allows us to believe that this data is mostly valid. Also, our experience additionally verifies which position is really long. It is always important to keep in mind, however, that the time it takes to complete a particular game will vary depending on the player.
We realize that most of the games discussed below could simply be called sandbox RPGs, in which, in addition to following the main storyline, we explore the world, undertake side quests and engage in various activities. However, we tried to choose titles that differed from each other in terms of the atmosphere or gameplay mechanics. If you know games that fit this set, don't forget to mention them in the comments.

It is also important not to forget about fighting the opponents, which provides a lot of fun thanks to the unique combat system.
There is a large list of additional activities for fans of unlocking all available achievements. There's even an achievement for getting addicted to alcohol. In addition, world in Kingdom Come is filled with hidden treasures.
