Games you have sunk the most time into?
« on: April 21, 2018, 06:41:11 pm »
Company of Heroes 2 (135 hours played) That is what steam says anyways.

However, that is not my most played game. Here is the real list with no numbers to back it up, but I know for a fact that these are the most played for me.

1. World of Warcraft

From the age of 13 -15 I spent every waking hour playing WoW. I have never been addicted to a game this badly before, and hopefully I never will again.
-----------------------

2. Halo Reach

I actually had a real life friend during this time, and we would hang out at my house and play Halo Reach like no tomorrow. Plus, I was just addicted to Halo at this time. Unfortunately he stopped speaking to me for no reason and I never heard from him again... :(
-----------------------

3. StarCraft

From the age of 10 - 12 I spent most of my time playing StarCraft, and it was thanks to all the cool custom maps you could play with people online.
------------------------

4. Spyro Year of the Dragon & Ripto's Rage

I love, love, love Spyro and I used to play it a ton along with Banjo Kazooie when I was younger then 10. To this day I will still replay the games. Also, A remaster is coming this year so booo ya!
------------------------

5. Sarges Heroes and the Army Men Franchise in general

These games were my first addiction to video games. I loved playing with those plastic toy army men when I was a kid, so it is not a surprise that I would fall in love with these games.
------------------------

So, what games have you sunken the most time into??

Warframe - ~750 hours. Free online cooperative multiplayer action game with tons of highly customizable, unique and inventive melee and projectile weapons and characters. Once you get past the somewhat steep initial learning curve (there are more than one) you'll find an amazing and rewarding experience.

Witcher 3 - 400+ hours. Greatest game ever made!!!!!!!!!

Skyrim - ~200 hours

Fallout 4 - ~200 hours

Pokemon Puzzle League / Tetris Attack - untold hours

If we’re talking most time played of all time..

Team Fortress 2 ~ 2k hours.. it’s been a while since I’ve played though

More recently I’ve been into Rocket League and Minecraft, both with about 300+ hours apiece

Also a WoW addict.  :laugh:
I put 3 years into that game before I finally ended my subscription due to college taking most of my time. But I miss it a lot, I really do. But I'm not working now so I don't want to pay money for it. Near the end of my playing I kinda just faded off to the point where it was like why am I even paying for this anymore? But for like the first year I played pretty much 8 hrs a day every day XD

But outside of that the most time I had in games are probably the Dark Souls series.
I have 300 or more hours IN EACH of the 3 games XD
I just really like those games (as I've told you before). There is just something about them with me that I connect to.

I have heard of Warframe before! I have thought about playing it for awhile now but I keep procrastinating on actually trying it out. It sounds like a great game!

The only game I played on your list is Tetris. Tetris rocks!

Wow, your WoW situation is almost like a mirror of mine. I would play it again if it was not for the subscription. There is also the fact that I do not own Legion, and I would rather not pay for that and Battle for Azeroth. Those allied races look pretty cool though!

That is a pretty crazy amount of time put into Dark Souls. I would get it if I had money, but it looks like I will have to wait till the holidays lol.

Yup, 'tis the issue of money that keeps me at bay myself. It's not that I don't have money, it's that I don't have income atm so I'm being very careful about my spending and would rather not use it on entertainment.

Just to add onto Polly's comment though I recently got into Warframe too. At first it wasn't really clicking with me but then I started to enjoy it. It's kinda cool, but I'm trying to make sure I don't fall into the WoW scenario again. My roomate I think has 700 hrs in it and one of my high school friends I think said like 1100 or something. Some insanely crazy number XD

Yeah, I do not feel comfortable spending money on games either but it is very tempting though. I have not bought a single game in 2017 except for 1 (A Hat In Time) and nothing in 2018 so far. At least I will have a list of things I want for Christmas this year lol. Although I always feel weird asking for presents.

Yeah, the WoW scenario is nightmare scenario lol. When I get into a game I can get lost in it for hours which is bad. Warframe is free and possibly addicting so I am not sure if I should be afraid of it or happy to try it. I guess I won't know unless I play it. Yeah those are some pretty crazy numbers lol

I've easily poured a few hundred hours each into at least one game from each Pokémon generation. The Fire Emblem series tends to suck me in the same way.

I've played maybe 500+ hours of Skyrim; at some point I got bored with the game and modded it to be as bizarre as possible, and then went into the game's files to replace everything in the soundtrack with my own music (for instance, replacing the title theme with "Never Gonna Give You Up" and all the battle music with anime fight themes. I know I had some Cybergoth stuff in there, too, because I remember Eisenfunk playing every time I went into a castle).

I spent several hundred hours on Smash Bros. Melee and Brawl before my parents kicked me out. Steam says I've spent 116 hours on Subnautica, but I think at least half of that was my ex. No telling how long I've spent playing the Fallout series for the same reason.

I've mostly tried to quit playing games so I can focus my time and money on other things, so I tend to plan what I'm getting way in advance these days. Next game I'm buying is Kingdom Hearts 3, and I don't think it comes out till February.

In Final Fantasy 11, you could type the command /playtime. (playtime only tracks time spent while online, not subscription time)

Last time I used it, before I quit it was something like:

2 years
61 days
Blah minutes
Blah seconds

Played WoW for most of vanilla, TbC, and Wrath.  Quit because I had kids and I didn't have time to justify the sub fee.  Started playing again in legion and got through the third content release, then found myself bored with it...  Now I've pre-purchased for the August release of BfA and all the alpha/beta stuff I've seen on it has me wondering If I'll re-sub or not.

Purchased a game I may never play.  Ugh.

Anyway, I only played that game for such a long time nearly everyday that I must have 1500 hrs. into it by now.

The most hours I've put into a game: Pokemon Pearl at nearly 1,000 hours.
I've put an average of 150 in most other Pokemon games, and a couple hundred into various Fallout games.

Yay, more pokemon fans!

TicTac, the Souls series is awesome but frustrating; I would personally recommend starting with Bloodborne. It has smoother controls and a cool gothic setting with Lovecraftian monsters and themes.

But it's an exclusive also. That game I want to play so badly. The moment it would be available on the Xbox I'd buy it twice. But nope, big name companies have to have their darn counsel wars.

True and the reason it's not on Xbox or PC is because the intellectual property for Bloodborne is owned by Sony.

WoW. I played it every waken hour from Vanilla to BC. I stayed up at nights raiding villages and castles, working daytime, taking care of kids. Learned my kids to play it. They played with me and learned the ethics of online gaming. That is a good thing. None of them are bullies.

But I was addicted. I still pay for my account. But I have not the guts to play much. I’m a person with an addiction brain. If I get stuck again I will neglect everything else.

When I play and feel the addiction cravings coming I stop. It’s painful. But it is worse to give in.

I have also played and payed for SWTOR. Pretty much the same free world gameplay as WoW but StarWars.

First on the list is Romance of the Three Kingdoms IX for PS2. I bought it maybe 12 years ago and played it every other month since then.

For my PC I play Candy Crush Soda Saga. That's daily for at least an hour; it's been like that for over two years.

My Android has a game that those in our community might enjoy. Love Nikki Dress Up Queen, also for iOS. It's sort of an RPG game, the battles are styling contests. I've only been playing it for a couple of months, so not really so much about the time, rather it's the first game I spent money on. It's free to play, but some things I wanted Now!
I'm a man. I like being a man. I also love wearing women's clothing. It's my way to show honor, respect and solidarity with them.
