    OMG... How many hours did I play?!?!

    According to Xbox live, I played over 255 hours and 56 minutes of Xbox Skyrim. 72 hours on the PC version, according to Steam... LOL.

    325 hours. And that's before the Creation Kit's even been released.



    I think there's something wrong with me.





    Or not.

    I was considering mentioning the same thing. Steam says I've done 173 hours, but I don't think I've had it as long as you two. In this time I still haven't completed the main quest or gone through the imperal/stormcloak quest. Still, I did split my game between two characters as well...

    What's wrong with us is that we're addicted to Skyrim. On the other hand, I'm still surprised it has held my interest this long. Morrowind and Oblivion for me were fun for a bit, but I ended up quite bored and just didn't play them through. Clearly there is something more satisfying about Skyrim.

    No kidding... I never finished Final Fantasy XIII. I got bored quickly. I got my Skyrim at midnight on 11/11/11. I preordered just because my friends did too. Normally I play zombie games, because I got so burnt out on the genre, however, I'm glad I did. When my HD and MB cooked and I lost 90% my work on my game, it was a hard slam. In that same computer failure, I lost all my Thief2 FMs in production too. Having a kid is a big life changer too. I got pretty disillusioned when my marriage went sour and my wife died in her car accident. Playing a game that allows me to dream is something wonderful. I don't know if it would be considered "Addiction", but it can certainly draw you into the game. I both play the game and study the engine at the same time. I mostly look at the game as an enjoyable educational experience. Hehe, I would love to import some of my old T2 AIs into the engine. This is my first time playing an Elder Scroll. Most of my friends played Morrowind and Oblivion and even Daggerfalls. My late wife didn't like violent video games so I was lucky to just be able to build Thief2 FM. I wasn't playing games, I was creating artistic 3d space in a virtual reality. I have friends around the world because of it. Anyway, OMG, I just rambled... Sorry.. :P

    Sounds like you've had a few tough things to contend with there, YcatX. I'm not having a great time of things myself lately. A nice helping of fairly major depression, but Skyrim is a useful escape. Does remind me of the way I was absorbed in Thief the first time I played it.

    45.8 hours. Over the 5 days I've been able to play it thus far..

    It is a great game. I remember when I reached Whiterun and just stopped and looked at the mist clinging to the distant mountains. The only experience I can compare it to is lucid dreaming when you suddenly feel that surreal kick of being inside a different reality. The world really is truly absorbing.

    Over the last weekend just after I got it I played about 10 hours a day.
    I feel so ashamed

    Actually Azaran, that's average playing time for me. No need to feel ashamed. It's so easy to become so immersed in this great game!

    I don't know how many hours I've played because I don't use Steam. But could anybody compute a general hours per level rate? I.e., Divide your total time by level.

    It feels like I can ramp up a level when I put in a long play session for one day (6 hours? or is it more like 3?). I have a feeling it's a few hours, but I don't know exactly. But anyway, I'm level 30, and it's taken some work to get there over a few weeks.

    Are you playing the console version, demagogue? Because Skyrim PC kinda, you know, requires Steam.

    That's news to me. I'm not using Steam and it works fine

    I've been in Thailand and didn't have an internet connection at home when I play, so I always played offline, and it doesn't accumulate time played.

    Edit: I should have seen this before... The number above the saved game date has the time played, or more specifically the age of the character (since obviously it doesn't count time not saved). So my character is 83 hours 19 minutes old. And I'm level 31, so that's a rate of roughly 2.6 hours per level. Not quite the hundreds of hours of others yet (and I have played more if you added the re-loads), but respectable.

    I reinstalled Skyrim today. To play Dragonborn. My old savefile (level 61) says: 237 hours played. That means I've probably spent around 350 hours playing the game.

    Yeah, this is a Skryim forum .....

    When I think back at it, I wasted a lot of time playing WoW. I've had great fun, and met some great people. But I probably overdid it. I did have a lot of spare time in those days, so it doesn't really matter. But it's good that those days are long gone.

    (Please God, keep give me the strength to resist buying PandaLand).

    131 hours so far. Though it's been a while since I've played it.
