Baldur’s Gate 3: The average play time per user on Steam is truly incredible

Baldur’s Gate 3 has a truly incredible average play time per user on Steam, higher than most other RPGs.

According to Michael Douse, the editorial director of Larian Studios, players have spent an average of 100 hours on Baldur’s Gate 3 , a truly enormous amount of time, considering the sales of millions and millions of copies. The data refers to the Steam version of the game , not the console ones. However, we find it hard to believe that it is very distant, considering the resonance the game has had. Douse then added that he would like to meet the people who made the media grow, probably to shake their hands.

Comparison data

The data provided by Douse is in line with that of VG Insights , whose estimates speak of 91.6 hours per player, with a median of 59 hours. Game World Observer took the opportunity to make a comparison with other very famous role-playing games.

Be careful, because the following data comes from VG Insights . They are usually accurate, but it is not certain that they are 100% accurate, due to the lack of official information from the developers.

  • The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – 118.7 hours (median is 50.9 hours), average/median play time for Special Edition is 76/20.6 hours;
  • Elden Ring – 103.1 hours (median is 78.2 hours);
  • Fallout 4 – 92.6 hours (median is 30.5 hours);
  • Baldur’s Gate 3 – 91.6 hours (median is 59 hours);
  • Dark Souls III – 81.9 hours (median is 36.7 hours);
  • Dark Souls II – 77.9 hours (median is 43.8 hours);

  • Granblue Fantasy: Relink – 49.1 hours (median is 29 hours);
  • Persona 4 Golden – 44.7 hours (median is 19 hours).

Of course the increase in playing time doesn’t mean much in terms of quality . It must be said, however, that if people play something a lot, it means that at least they have been captured in some way.
