    Opinions???

    I've only ever gotten over a 100 hours on a few games (all by NIS) but I could never imagine playing 8,701 hours on a single.

    I'm surprised he/she didn't die from excessive playing. It's because of kids like these that gamers get a bad name ;)


    Lol or maybe he just kept the game running overnight so that he can resume his adventure first thing in the morning.

    Wouldn't you like to know
    17 hours playing means 7 left to do other stuff. This person shoulda dropped cuz of fatigue before even breaking 1000 hours. Gaming is great but holy shit this is excessive. I though grizz playing call of duty for 7 hours each day was insane but this makes that look normal. Now we wait for the same thing from a Skyrim player lolz

    After 362 and a half days without sleep, you'd be dead. I call BS.

    Never mind, read that wrong.

    He definitely kept it running overnight, since games don't clock your play hours depending on your activity, you can just stand still and clock hours of playtime without ever doing anything ;) He reached max level and shit by playing of course, but when not playing, left it running.

    Probably just either glitched it or let his Playstation run to get more hours.

    Steam still says I have 24 hours in Garry's Mod and I barely played it for an hour or two.

    It's completely possible. 17 hour play time, 7 hours of sleep. It's plausible s/he did it this way, but I would put my money on s/he leaving the console on.

    It's a Level-5 game so yes and no.

    My max hours on the same game is something along the lines of 350-400 hours. I really don't get how you could get anything above 1000 hours on the same game, really. I would have gone tired of it, every game has an expiration game in my book.

    There must be that one game which you'll always go back to. Maybe this is his game.

    Always yes. Level-5 can't make bad games.

    But he did it consequently, in 1 go! I've got Age of Empires 2 that never tires me, and the FIFA series, and maybe CoD series, but even then, I hardly have over 400 hours on either of those games/series. And there's a major timespan between one playing session and another.

    Only one question remains: was it worth it?

    Now I really speak for this player, but the answer is no.

    You obviously haven't seen my /played time for my characters in WoW when I was playing, it's freaking stupid how much I played it, only two primary characters logged something like 2 years play time over the course of 3 and a half years.
