Inspired by a few other posts in one of the other threads I made, I thought this would be a good topic. I think the geeks will truly reveal themselves now laugh.gif

So, if you know how many hours, days, or months (if the game counts them) you have clocked on your most played game - Post them here. smile.gif

For me its a no brainer.

Final Fantasy VII - 3,034 hours - Play it at least twice a year, and have been doing so for the past 13 years. Its about 175-200 hours if you want to complete everything in the game, Which I've done several times. Chocobo breeding can change that by a factor of 10-15 hours alone though laugh.gif

But, I would like to add that it was done over the course of 13 years smile.gif

There are some WOW players who have over a year logged on it, and that game is only a few years old.

Gameboy Advance System. A nice RPG. Very relaxing for me.

I can spend a minimum of 20 hours on each game if I go fast. But If I take my time it could go to 40 hours and up!

Same here, and just a few times. A mind is a terrible thing to waste.

If you look at SAT scores over the past decades in the US, Math scores have risen moderately, and at the same time Verbal scores have dropped precipitously. Typically students who take the SAT do go to college. Students learn math in school as they always have, however if they are going to develop verbal/analytical skills, they have to learn a lot of that at home reading books.

I'd like to point out that playing tons of RPG's which required reading helped me develop my interest in reading books. Now I read about 2-3 books a month, sometimes more. Video games do not waste away minds, Minds are wasted away on video games - And there is a difference between the two.


EDIT

I'd also like to add that I believe the majority of people probably don't know how to conserve time with games. If done right, playing video games can even be beneficial to the human mind. smile.gif

All the LOL, ROFL, TS, BUMP's and abbrevations would make any kid confused. Why spell out the entire word like the "old people"?
You did a good thing, looks to me you kicked Uncreator in the direction to pick up on aln old dream of writing a book smile.gif

Quake, hands down laugh.gif
I used to play many hours a day for many years,
travelling around the country attending LAN parties etc.

Played in three different clans, and even had a match for the norwegian national quake team (modem players)
against Sweden, where we unfortunately lost laugh.gif

Final Fantasy VII & VIII is right up there though..

For those who think video games are bad for your english skills, I have no idea what your talking about!

I think my English Teacher has just always has it out for me...

It's not my fault the Teacher doesn't know 100% grammer correct Elite Speak.

Translation: i can speak in perfect elite speak! all you need for today's life! those that don't play enough games have the issues with basic reading and writing.

I also know binary, a collection of programming and web languages, text message, internet slang, short hand abbrevations, etc. What more do they want from me!

Quake! ..or to be technical, QuakeWorld.
Spent most part of the late 90's and early 00's glued to that game smile.gif

Newer games are probably better made and better to look at, but so far i havent found a single game thats more playable. It's been 14 years since it came out, and i still play it from time to time.

The game is six years old this november. Plenty long enough for a truly addicted person to rack up 3 years worth of online time. My wife, for example, hasn't 3 years worth I think, but she's probably close to that if we tally up her /played.

I quit in spring of 2009, just before joining GMC, but that's probably the "video" game I spent the most time playing.
