Halo: Reach terror stat update: 16,445 “man-years” wasted so far

Monday, 18th October 2010 20:42 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Just think, right, what could happen if all this time was spent actually achieving something. No? Let’s go, Spartan.

Bungie’s dropped a bunch of new Halo: Reach figures, proving once and for all that humanity will eventually become extinct because it was playing videogames. Sad but true.

From here. Look:

  • 16,445 Man-Years have been spent playing Halo: Reach (Not to be confused with Dog-Years)
  • 784,000,000 player-games have been played (1 game with 4 players is tallied as 4 player-games)
  • 544,000,000,000 Credits have been earned (spend that money, playa!)
  • 3,900,000 Screenshots have been uploaded (and plenty of them feature juvenile looks at Kat’s “bad side”)
  • 5,970,000 total files have been uploaded (your bandwidth bill is in the mail)
  • 300,000,000 Mountain Dews were do’d

This is since the game launched in September, obviously. There’s nothing more to say. Enjoy your inevitable oblivion.

    Is that picture from ODST? It looks like Sgt. Johnson, he’s definately not in the Reach game, except for his picture when you purchase a voice.

    i am lt. colonel grade 2. i played over 2 days…probably 3. i enjoy this game so much. haven´t had that much fun playing a game (online) for ages. some were great as well like bfbc2. but this is a freakin perfect beast. i prefer scifi/ fantasy shooters over military ones. games should create a new world and don´t copy the real world imo. anyway: i can´t keep on playing on this extreme hour burning level much longer. i love my social life but sometimes i ask myself if anything can beat reach. ouch. call dr. freud. someone. please.

    Humanity will not became extvinct for playing videogames. The worlds overall IQ will drop cos ugly and intelegent people aka Nerd will be playing videogames while beautyfull and stupid people will make babies. Ergo the world will be filled with stupid babies…

    @8, why even make a comment that pathetic & stupid? Well i guess the words are only as good as the one who uses them, imbecile.
    The only kind of game i could think of which could possibly turn a man gay, is if it contained dancing naked grannies *shivers*

    In order achieve great things and be productive you also need time off to relax.
    So videogames are not a waste of time.

    Cure cancer by day, shoot people in the head by night. ;)
