I know you are going to say instantly the I didn't play the game properly and that's why it was so short. I play the game on hard difficulty stealth (not clean hands) I got every rune and bone charm. This game was still very very short. I get that it's meant to be played different ways and with multiple playthroughs but other games achieve the same thing with a fairly longer campaign. Now I am not saying this game wasn't fun because it really was but they could of made it longer. Clean hands is more difficult and takes longer but in the end I am just delaying the time it takes to do the exact same thing.
I call anyone a liar that claims to have finished the game in 6 hours playing stealthily all the way through, exploring all the areas, playing all the side missions, and found all the runes. I put about 16 hours into the game and I still had some things that I never completed. I do believe it would be very easy going through quickly using little stealth and not doing much exploring. And even though I did spend 16 hours, I will agree the game still seemed smallish; some maps were reused for multiple missions and the exploration yielded little benefit.
I was disappointed by the length, but it was an incredible experience regardless. It's definitely a game I will play multiple times. One of my all-time favourite games - A great story (unsatisfying conclusion, however), a great world and aesthetic, great sound design and phenomenal combat. Amazing. But yeah, quite short.

Many games can be completed in less than 2 hours. I remember doing speed runs for Resident Evil (remake) and Metal Gear Solid in less than 2 hours.
And I believe someone made a 30 minute speed run for HL1.
That said, I don't think the game is too short. I don't remember exactly how much time i spent with Dishonored, but it was well over 6 hours.
