I am interested in knowing how much of people's life went wasted playing videogames.
My friend has played League of Legends for 2 years, and has spent approximately 4,000 hours in League of Legends, which is roughly 6 months of his life.
I have made some calculations of how much I've played:
Approx. 600 hours into pokemon (calculated off game time)
Approx. 5,000 hours into Urban Rivals.
Approx. 4,380 hours into Call of Duty.
Approx. 2,000 hours into various other games (flash games, etc.)
Approx. 533 hours into League of Legends.
Added up: 12,513 hours.
Calculation: 12,513 divided by 24 divided by 12= 43.44 months of gaming, which is approximately 3 years, 7 months, and 14 days of gaming.
So end result: I spent 3 years, 7 months, and 14 days so far wasted on videogames.
This is only a rough estimate, and I made this to make people realize how long they spend playing videogames over whatever else they should be doing
Just a bit
Got roughly $25000 worth in MTG (honest), and 2K worth in both UR and FR, and my investment was around 2-3K overall, most of it in UR.
That's not bad, I presume
But the time spent is what i regret.
UR, I don't regret even a min, time well spent, i should say, having at least 2-3 hundred solid friends, and a good account, and though I antagonise people time to time, they come round to realise I am a harmless worm later, and I, inevitably, gain more friends
How much time did I waste sitting in a chair being taught unimportant facts?
How much time did I waste sitting at a table burning through my remaining brain power and energy just to prove I paid attention?
How many hours did I waste flipping burgers as if the fate of the world depended on it just so I could have the bare necessities of life?
How much of life is wasted being miserable?
2000++ hours for pokemon games (all from yellow till black 2 and I played every single games except fire red, green leaf, gold heart, silver soul, white 1 and white 2)
not sure for UR (6 years)
around 1000++ hours for FF series (from oldest FF till FF12)
around 500-700 hours for disgaea series
NES, SNES, GBC, GBA, PS1, PS2, PS3, XBOX360, PSP, NDS, PC, arcade games, flash games, ipod, then android.. in span of 17 years
I play CoD. I don't play Xbox that much any more though, and I've just recently picked up League.
I recently spent like 6 months playing Xbox with like 4 hours of sleep, but I'm not going to calculate the exact number.
I used to hardcore play DS, about 6 hours a day for 2 years.
The internet? OMG I can't even calculate.
I prob spent around 1 year and a half on gaming in general because I'm not too serious.
