This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Answerers: the question isn't asking how much time did you need to finish ME3, but how much time the average player does need. Stack Exchange is a Q&A site, not a blog. :) – badp Apr 23 '12 at 8:59

This is a question that no single person's experience can answer for you, as we all have different play styles, play on different difficulty levels, and play on different platforms. These can all have a large impact on overall play time.

A good answer will collect data from multiple sources and take an average. That's exactly what this page on HowLongToBeat.Com aims to do, and it also breaks it down by "just main game", "main game plus side quests", etc.

The average is looking to be about 23 hours, with another 8 or so for the side quests.
