The PS4 Game That Takes The Longest To Beat
There are plenty of lengthy games on the PS4, such as “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt,” which takes 173 hours to fully complete according to HowLongToBeat and “Showrunner,” clocking in at close to 200 hours for full completion. When taking a completionist route, though, one game soars high above the rest in terms of playtime needed to 100% complete it.
Out of the top 10 longest PS4 games on HowLongToBeat, the action RPG “Genshin Impact” has the longest reported time for full completion when looking at single-player modes. Completing the game’s main story and side quests takes most players 160 hours, but beating “Genshin Impact” to 100% takes a whopping average of 510 hours.
Not only is “Genshin Impact” particularly long, but it continues to receive frequent updates, adding to its playtime — on January 12, 2023, the title saw a huge character leak that has yet to launch in the game. “Genshin Impact” may not be for the faint of heart given its sizable time investment, but for those looking for a long-term gaming venture, it certainly fits the bill.
