How much of your life was wasted being an avid gamer?

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 :)

I'm wrong. The calculation is:

X divided by 24 divided by 30.

So, I actually spent 17.37 months on videogames, which is 1 year, 5 months, and 12 days on videogames.

Still alot of time gone xD

I really don't know about me, never actually recorded the time that I played games for. Maybe 6 months total? Most people wouldn't know too. :razz:

How I calculated was:

25,000 Urban Rivals games (old accounts)
800 League of Legend games
20,000-30,000 Call of Duty games (I played search and destroy which records by 3 minute intervals)
Just plain 600 hours of pokemon gameplay.
2,000 hours of other games is a big guess. Idk if it's more or not.

It's a big guess for me.

According to that i have probably wasted about a 17.04 months. (Not counting the Max payne, Age of empires, Red alert and Unreal tournament days).:smile:

A bit harsh to call it wasting though. :razz:

0 hours. No time was ever "wasted" when I play games. : D

But, if we're talking about hours total being put into games? Hmm... Maybe ~4 yrs worth of hours (~35040 hours) into games?
