If you keep on after four hours despite being bored with it, then you're either just determined to finish it or actually like it better than you realize.
I don't mind a game needing a little momentum, but dozens of hours is just silly. A game needs to be replayable if you ever want to get your money's worth; if it only reaches its peek after a hundred hours of play it is certainly not replayable; nobody is going to make that time investment twice!
