    I started on Oct. 5, 2011 and finished my first game on Nov. 7, 2011. 154:42:16 to reach SL109. I started as a Hunter.
    I did not have internet for my ps3 back then, but since I bought the collector's edition, I had the book to show me things that I had missed (like the Great Hollow). I would only consult the book if I was stuck.
    I keep a spreadsheet to track my characters.

    Sorry for the double post. This won't tell you how many hours you spent on your first playthough, but you could check your trophies/achievements to see when you received the "Enkindle" (first one) and the "To Link the Fire" or "Dark Lord" (last one) award for your first game.

    80 hours first playthrough

    Of course I did every boss, even found the dragon cov (by complete accident), missed out the DW, sunbro and forest hunter covs though.

    No DLC, I've had the game since about 1 month after release.

    Spreadsheet idea is funny, as I had a notebook once to keep track of where each toon was in the game. Nothing worse than running to blighttown to find out qualaag is lready dead. But I gave that up. phbbbbt

    Close to 200 hours I think.

    Played blind and missed sooo much. Never even got the large ember, never mind the very large. Went more and more faith, and used a divine halberd +5 for the majority of my playthrough, (never found the large divine ember either).

    Finally finished up at about level 150ish I think, (several levels put into resistance of course, lol).

    My first time playing (a character that I stopped before gargoyles) I farmed at undead burg, so I could level up my resistance to play like a tank (in my fool head) xD

    It has been so long since my first completion. I can't even remember.

    About sixty, spent a lot of times hitting walls to try and discover secrets, even after all that I missed a lot, like the painted world.

    Somewhere in the 30-100 hour range.
    DLC wasn't out back then.

    If I had to guess, I'd say about 60 hours or so.

    Can't recall, but assuming it took me as long as Demon's Souls, probably 80-100 hours, without the DLC.
