I intend to play this game through a few times but I wanna know how much time the whole thing will take to play through EP 1-5 complete. It sounds like it's less than 10 hours, but if you've finished it all, please speek.
i spent about an average of 3-4 hours on each episode. But I exhausted all conversations, went back to talk to the same people again after doing something little to see if they had more to say and so on and so on. After already completing the game i could easily seeing the episode averages 1.5-2 hours depending on how thorough you want to be
I believe if you knew what to do for every puzzle, and never died or felt an urge to see "what would happen if..." and just played the game straight thru, I'd assume u could get thru it in a day, about 15 hours max if u play like that.
If you're like me and take your time inspecting every detail of the world, rewinding to check out a "what if I did this differently...", died a couple times, take breaks and so on, then you'd get thru 1 episode a day or two. I usually took 2 days per episode, I play it pretty slowly. I actually started it a few weeks back, still just nearing the end of episode 4.
Bottom line, it's quite good, and you may just be finding the urge to replaying episodes just to find out what else could happen. I know when I'm done I'm going to replay all 5 chapters and be a complete a**hole to everybody but Clementine, see how they get along with me then. Then maybe after that I can replay it and be cold enough to be mean and tell lies to Clem just to test how heartless I can be, that will be Hard Mode for me.
