Better site

I'm sure there's going to be bias, but I'll ask anyways. What site do you prefer and why?

While HLTB has a much bigger user data set for each title due to the site's popularity, it doesn't come close to touching the options/features/flexibility of completionator.

I'm definitely not biased though. At all.

Sure HLTB has more user entered data, but if I really want to know about the playtime (which I rarely do), I'll head over there quickly. Of all the sites I searched for to keep an overview of my collection over different platforms, this was the best one I found for me. Initially, I didn't care much for the community features, but I'm really enjoying them now. I love that I was able to suggest things for the site and they were implemented. All that is to say, I prefer completionator :)

The problem with HLTB is that they have multiple entries for what is essentially the same game, and when you're a site focused on letting people know how long it takes to beat a game, that throws off your data. Not to mention the community and moderators are a bunch of argumentative asshats who can't acknowledge the sites flaws and just make excuses. I hate them.

I think HLTB is more geared towards time spent on a game whereas Completionator is more geared towards, well, managing your game collection as a whole. I'm really digging Completionator's customization and especially the export tool.

Both sites are great in their own rights though.

I have used Backloggery, HLTB, and completionator and found that completionator is much more intuitive and it feels a bit more personal to use.

Never even heard of how long to beat. Completionator works great for me and does exactly what I need. I can track my collection, see it’s value, log my own progress and favorites, add to my wishlist, and curate lists. It’s perfect!

HLTB is a great supplemental source to Completionator when maybe there aren't times (or as many) entered here for a game....or just to get a broader sense of the average times for a game. I've not used HLTB in any extensive nature so I can't really say how the rest of what they offer compares.

That being said, I've been using Completionator since 'pretty much' the beginning and it has been pretty much everything I would want in a game collection, interaction, and progress site. Community here is pretty good, too.
