    Really? what the hell is there to do in 350 hours? One playthrough is 28-34 hours. you beat the game 10 times?

    The most time I spent on a game is Pokemon. I thought it would be others like Fallout but it's mostly 60 hours, maximum. Only pokemon had me playing about 250+ hours

    The triple-digit ones are as follows --

    TF2 (283)
    M&B: Warband (162)
    Far Cry 2 (120)
    King's Bounty (106)

    But I spend a lot of time in Offline Mode, so in reality other games might have gotten more playtime.

    Also...I think a lot of that King's Bounty time was actually spent alt-tabbed out of it (and some of the Warband as well). I wonder if Steam continues to tally up playtime while you're alt-tabbed...I think it does. SKEWED REZULTZ

    Yes it does, basically Steam only tracks the time a game executable has been running, you can mistakenly drive your 2wk playtime through the roof if you forget a game (or better yet, a game launcher) running in the background.

    I imagine FTL is rather off. Great game while doing something else or playing another game.

    So where are all the DOTA guys? ;)

    DOTA 2 - 327
    Terraria - 48
    GTA IV -30
    Fallout New Vegas - 30

    As you can see DOTA 2 is by far my highest, that game is honestly like crack not that I've ever tried crack but I can imagine it being quite addictive.

    A friend of mine on Steam has over a thousand hours on DOTA 2. For the first three months after its release playing it was essentially the only thing he did aside from eating and sleeping.

    What I find interesting is that you've played ME 1 and 3 for the nearly the same amount of hours, but your total playtime for ME 2 is higher than for the other two combined. Did you just enjoy it more or is there some deeper reason for that discrepancy?

    When Xfire was new always thought to just have it running to track game hours played. Does not work if you forget to run it all the time.

    Order of most likely most played by types:

    MMOs (WoW > DAoC > Everquest > random other MMOs to try)

    Multiplayer
    Hard to say where I have spent the most time. RTS has been consistent, starting with Red Alert. FPS has been up and down. (BF 1942, CS beta 3, UT, Tribes on 56k modem) to where now its NS2 mostly and some BF3. Lately it has been hundreds of hours into Natural Selection 2, MWO, LoL.

    Randomized single player
    4X games leading the charge. Civ series, MOO, Ascendancy, SOTS etc. Have not played SimCity since SC2k. Some Tropico. Rise of Nations always kept coming back to due to the campaign style.

    RTS
    One genre I tend to actually finish the campaigns. RTSs seems to be able to keep me engaged and interested. I love RPGs but I have a bad habit of finishing them, putting 10-20s into them before I move on.

    Turn Based Strategy, Strategic

    Heroes of Might & Magic series has taken triple digits. Kings Bounty 50+. Advance Wars series on GameBoy. Hearts of Iron 2 I binged at for a couple months, leading the Brazilian invasion of Spain and Japanese expansion. Ogre Battle played over and over, never completing it.

    Might & Magic is up there to, sadly have not completed any of the 9 yet.
    FTL 30+.

    I'm not with my PC so can't check steam. I can tell you that my time in Eve easily exceeded 365 days though!

    Half of that was afk though. :p

    Let's assume that a full playthrough is roughly 25-30 hours.

    I played ME1 twice.
    Then I played ME1 again because ME2 came out.
    Then I played ME2 twice.
    Then I played a ME2 NG+ as Infiltrator.
    Then ME2's DLC came out so I did another ME2 playthrough.
    Then ME3 came out so I did all the MEs in order.

    Then I sat down because ME3 was emotional.

    Then I played a ME3 NG+ and settled in for some ME3 MP.

    This is all, of course, over the course of five years. So that's four playthroughs of ME1, five of ME2 and some dicking around, and two of ME3. I might pick up ME3 again when the next DLC comes out, and then I'll set them all down more or less forever.

    My ~2000 hours of Morrowind (with expansions and an ever-shifting parade of mods) are undoubtedly the winner for me, though the ~1000 hours in Guild Wars 1 is definitely a solid second place. Of course, that second total is buoyed somewhat by afking for 24 hours at a stretch during certain holiday events.

    Follow that with ~400 hours in AI War, Sword of the Stars, and Europa Universalis 2.

    Great games are worth putting a lot of time into. Of course, this is also why I have a backlog a mile high, but then what's the point of sampling a lot of games if not to find the ones that are worth spending 100 hours with?

    Current Steam top 10 most played:

    TF2: 465.9 hrs

    FM12: 357.3 hrs

    FM11: 298.0 hrs

    Dungeons of Dredmor: 155.3 hrs (still only seen Dred on the easy setting)

    Terraria: 96.6 hrs (not all my own hours as the kids played this for a while. I'm still poo at it though)

    Psychonauts : 49.7 hrs (completed)

    The Binding of Isaac : 45.9 hrs (killed Mom only once!)

    Left 4 Dead : 42.6 hrs

    Just Cause 2: 39.6 hrs

    The Witcher: 38.4 hrs (Still on first playthrough)

    Before Steam (at least before I had Steam) I sank most my hours into Guild Wars, UT2004 and the version of footy/champ manager that I had at the time.

    you don't need the steam client to check your most played games if your profile is set to public and you have a custom URL, just a browser and go to http://steamcommunity/id/<your ID>/games?tab=all sort by playtime.

    People quoting Steam numbers are aware that:

    1) Prior to a few years ago, Steam didn't track accumulated time, so any figure you're giving is play time only from late 2009 onward. If you're anything like me, that means some games you played to death don't show as played at all, and others show dramatically lower play times than they should.

    2) Steam hour tracking is notoriously twitchy and often wrong, above and beyond point 1.

    Right?

    Steam:

    NBA 2k10: 303hrs.
    Dragon Age Origins: 180 hrs. (this I still doubt)
    Oblivion: 119 hrs.
    NBA 2k13: 114 hrs.
    Skyrim: 99 hrs.
    Terraria: 81 hrs.

    Not on Steam:

    Guild Wars 1: >3500 hrs.
    Guild Wars 2: 168 hrs.

    Minecraft: I have no Idea, but probably something around 200 hrs.


    I'm pretty sure at the same time next year I'll have to include Super Hexagoin somewhere in this list as I already logged over 15 hours into it and I don't see me abandoning this game anytime soon.

    It's not perfect but personally I never noticed any large mistakes, did you? OTOH I had in-game timers reporting largely underestimated playtimes, probably because they are tied to a single save.

    There were cases of people reporting exceedingly short times (Portal 2?), but on average I suppose they are balanced by those forgetting (or purposefully leaving) games/launchers running in the background.
