I only have about 5 hours on PC though because I just played around with some mods and that was about it.
That's why I wrote "I don't consider". Everyone else is entitled to their opinions. When I finish Crysis 2, I have beaten the single player portion of that game on the selected difficulty. It's done, over, beaten.
The misleading title here (which has also misled you) should actually be something like "Speedrun of Skyrim's main quest done in two hours".
