Man plays White Knight Chronicles II for 8,000 hours

Friday, 9th December 2011 09:54 GMT By Johnny Cullen

How much have you played Battlefield 3 or Modern Warfare 3′s multiplayer in the past month? 200, maybe 300 hours? That don’t mean shit, anymore: the bar’s been raised.

A Japanese player of White Knight Chronicles II has managed to amass over 8,701 hours playtime since he first began, bringing the playcount to nearly an entire year at 362 days without sleep.

Siliconera suggests the player spent at least nearly 17 hours a day on the Level 5 RPG, which launched in Japan last summer. It arrived here in Europe earlier this year.

We salute you, sir.




    Does his name start with an ‘E’?

    seriously i don´t know how this can be possible. i recently checked my halo reach playtime and realised it is 200something. mp and several sp playthroughs. to me this is a LOT. the other biggest timesuckers this gen are bf2 and some cod titles, with bf2 coming close to halo reach. skyrim is 70hours its kids stuff. these numbers seem huge to me and remind me of how much time i spent on games. now i feel like a casual gamer.

    8000 / 24 (hours) = 333.
    He has played 333 full 24 hour days. My good. If we change playtime to 10 hours per day, then he has played for 800 days. 2.5 years!?!? My god.

    17 hours a day? So he literally did nothing else for a year.I thought I had no social life.

    This reminds the case of the south korean gamer that die after playing 50 straight hours on the internet, this is taking gaming to the extreme in a bad way IMHO

    I’m not sure if the article is poorly worded or if I’m being daft.

    Has he played 362 days without sleep, or has he played the equivalent of that over some other timeframe?

    The former is impossible is all.

    His total playtime is 362 days, over the last year and a half.

    bullshit. 2-3 people sharing the account… Though it’s almost as hard to believe that many people enjoy White Knight tbh ;-)

    Surely there can’t be any of the game left to experience? Sounds like a death spiralling dry wank to spend that many hours on a single game. Christ, many people wouldn’t spend that many hours on a given hobby in an entire lifetime.

    I’d concur (and prefer to believe, for my own sanity) that multiple users of one account is behind this. That or he simply left the game running 24/7…

    The most logged time I have on Steam is for Rift at 298 hours. I’m sure WoW was probably double or triple that amount and most of it was done in one long hermit-like, no social life summer. I look back at that and regret it. It was fun while I was doing it but depressing to think I pretty much wasted a full year of my life on that game.

    Having a good balance between work, social life and gaming is so much better, healthier and fun. Of course, I would happily drop the work part and split it down the middle between social and gaming if someone would be kind enough to throw a few million quid my way…
