This dataset requires special permission to use.

Originally collected by Dr. Joe Cox, this dataset has information about the sales and playtime of over a thousand video games released between 2004 and 2010. The playtime information was collected from crowd-sourced data on “How Long to Beat”.

Some more information can be found here.
