I voted two weeks, but I feel like I’m in “probably going to see spoilers” territory there. I feel like on the day of release some news site will post what the secret is in a headline, so it’s how long I can avoid the internet completely while I’m playing.
I hope that’s what they’ll do, but I’ve seen people be spoilered by news sites over TV show finales several times before (I’ve usually managed to avoid those by just not going on the internet until I’ve seen the finale).
I don’t know what sites gain by putting actual spoilers in headlines, but it seems to happen pretty often.
I voted “two months or more”, because I’ll be playing it alongside my 11- and 8-year-old children. They’re in school now, so our play sessions will probably be Saturday mornings, but not ALL Saturday mornings.
EDIT: Sam and Max is a series I play alone. Right now I’m on Season 2, Episode 4. Yes I know the Season 3 spoiler, or the gist of it.
I want to try and solve the game without an external guide, because I’ve never solved an MI game without one. But I will use the in-game hint systems if I’m stumped. So I guess I wouldn’t be solving it on my own after all.
I voted a month as I hope the game will be long enough to last that long. I guess it will come in parts like the others did, so I know I can pace myself to finishing only one part per week. Or less.
I think I spent about three weeks to finish TWP, but I have less time these days, so… perhaps I will need to stretch it to 2 months.
I voted for two month or more. Similar to @Sushi I hope that the game will be long epic. Beside that, I can’t play during my vacations (two weeks! ). And my work and my family only permit about an hour of play each day.
(Maybe I have to add a vacation of four weeks on a lonely island with my computer. )
I will not go on Twitter, not on YouTube, not visit here and only read national news until I finished it. Easy!
I have been training by not reading any of the posts here that dissect the trailers/screenshots that have been released, which I barely looked at. I have watched the trailer once and found it too spoilery.
To me: Unfortunately yes. My time to play the game will be limited anyway. And if I have to decide to meet a great community here or to be in internet quarantine during six month, I will accept the spoilers.
I’ve tried that too, but not with a huge success. Here and there I read some of the discussions incidentally.
Oh, wow. I can understand staying away from game-specific forums like this one, but for me not visiting YouTube for months would be really impossible. The same goes for news aggregators that personalize my news. Kudos to you for managing!
I really don’t expect this game taking months to be solved, though, not even if you can dedicate to it just a few hours/week.
Well, I want to ENJOY the game, that means reading everything, trying even the useless things.
The most difficult part will be avoid the spoilers, posts, walkthroughs, videos that will appear online everywhere.
But I can do it.
