What long games didn't feel that long?

Most Bioware games up til Mass Effect 3. I think, in general, the games that you "don't want to end" are the games that never feel long enough.

Persona 5. I had 120 hours but it sure didn't feel like it.
Man, I want the opposite! I had 125 hours and it felt like 200, lol. I had to take a week break at a certain point. FYI I adored the game, and the series as a whole.

For me it's definitely God of War. It felt like it just flew by even though I put in over 50 hours.

Must have been Sekiro. I finished it at around 50 hours and thought I was like 25 at max.

Also the vice versa happened with Darksiders 3. I finished it at 17 hours but felt like 30

Resident Evil VII and Alien Isolation are two recent games that people like to cite as being "too long". But I love them both and wouldn't trim a single thing from either. I'm actually replaying RE7 for the first time since release and when I got to the ship that everyone else wants to cut, I was like "wait I'm already here?"

Each time I re-play the original Witcher, the time just flies, even though I know a playthrough takes anywhere from 60-80 hours (depending how much I fast-forward the clock).

There's something about that story that just makes it so easy to lose myself in the world.

Witcher 3 for me as well. Forgot how many hours I had but after beating both expansions, I looked at the clock at thought to myself, "no way". Everything about the pacing, story, characters, and exploration kept me going from the Red Baron onwards.

Any game I end up enjoying usually feels short, so Persona 5, XC2, most recently Fire Emblem: Three Houses.
