This game is impressivly large. I just looked at my stats and I am 50% complete.and I have 47 hours of play time.
Granted I am the type of player that tries to go and complete all the minor options and side quests.
I know this game has been out awhile but I waited to play it until I got my new computer at the end of December.

I was pretty pleased with how well this game turned out. My only other AC game is Black Flag so I can't compare much within the series, but by itself Origins is very good IMO.
I was at 50 hours when I beat the main story, but I did most of the side quests I discovered (so certainly not all of them in the game) and filled out the map/tower discoveries. The open world is pretty great to explore. A lot of people bash Ubi for being formulaic, but if that's the case they honestly have a pretty solid formula and it seems like they've listened to some of the recent complaints and addressed them in Origins, which I hope carries over to Far Cry 5.
The performance was also pretty great, which I also hope bodes well for Far Cry 5 on PC.

I am pretty much hitting almost all side quests and points of interest. I have played all of the AC series.
I first started when 3 came out. I purchased a pack that included 1 and 2 with it.
1 turned out to be old enough it was not really playable on my computer. You had to use a Microsoft gamepad and it was very quirky.
I like the formula. You know what your getting in a new game and it keeps the learning curve low.
Some of the changes were minor but have had an impact on game play for the good. One change I don't like though is the use of smoke bombs. i would rather I could throw them at random.
