About three hours. I take my time.

I've never bothered with higher physical difficulties. Fighting isn't my focus. In fact, even the concept of playing on Normal doesn't strike me as too appealing. Who needs to have enemies that are almost as smart--or mayhap smarter?--than me following me around?

Shortest time I've beaten it is probably and hour and twenty, fifteen minutes tops.
I'm not dead yet, dammit.

People take their time, there's nothing wrong with that. I always get so turned around in the Labyrinth..

I had a friend who beat it in about an hour. She rushed through everything, and I thought that cheapened the experience somehow. I didn't enjoy the game as much because of that.

Yeah,I played with one of my friends and he rushed through ,even skipping all the movies and that seemed to losen it's emoutional attachment to you.It baeicaly became a Shoot-everything-in-sight-and-not-have-any-humanity-elements-in-the-game game.Did you feel like that when you rushed through?

2 or 3 hours, I reckon. I'd have to start up my Xbox to check and I don't really feel like doing that right now. You guys have some damn impressive times, although personally I don't see much enjoyment in rushing through (but most people do. Every game seems to have a speedrun). I intended on trying for a low time when I played last time but I got distracted examining scenary and license plates for a half an hour and that idea went to hell XD That and I have an obsessive-compulsive need to check every door even if I know it's locked (or broken, as it were).

On Normal, I skipped through all the cut scenes and my time turned out to be 3 hours and 55 minutes [or close to 4 hours..]

I didn't rush through. :P I just played the game so much I know where to go and don't really waste time, unless I'm trying to look for something or investimigatin'.

Don't get me wrong: It's not as though every time I've played it I've rushed through it. The first day I received it I clocked in at eight hours, ten minutes; the times after that were something like six hours. Keep in mind, also: I've played this game over sixty times. I don't need to walk through it every time anymore.

Same here. I've played through it many times at a normal pace and I've absorbed basically everything there is to absorb from playing it. I can still take my time and enjoy the scenery, but speeding is fun sometimes too, and it's not cheapening my experience... I'm not going to unread what I've already read.

6h 11m for me the first playthrough. And I mean first ever finish of a SH game. That was beginner/easy, as I wanted to get the feel of the game first. Managed to get the Leave ending, and 10 stars, and am now going for Rebirth, with walk/run reversed. Having that setting makes it so much easier to kill the monsters with the plank at the beginning!

Did you just say you got ten stars on your first playthrough? If you did, I would have to call you a liar.

Methinks Action Replay MAX is a factor. :wink:

I've been working on a speedrun of this game for sometime now.

Currently my fastest completion (Normal action/Normal Riddle; no special weapons and no secret endings) is 51 minutes and 21 seconds. I expect to get under 51 minutes eventually. Once this is done the video will be put on the speeddemosarchive (there is a 57:12 video on there right now, the gamer who did it is working on beating me now; currently he's at 54:12 so I have a big lead at the moment).
