GameSpy has released some interesting stats for Red Dead Redemption, and it may please folks to know that over 5.7M hats were shot off during duels in the game.

If you find that slightly impressive, in two-weeks of playtime, gamers accrued 14 million hours, equaling out to 156,945 years passing within the game. Funnily enough, 5,614 of those years were spent in jail, which averages out to 2 years 10 months in real-life.

There were also approximately 1.9M horses stolen,  131.9M murders committed, around 862K robberies, and 808.6K acts of arson during the same time frame.

Players also consumed 8.6 liters of alcohol in the game, which is slightly more than the average American, and a bit less than the average Russian.

When it came to skinnin’ critters, wolves were the favorite with more than 55.8M killed, compared to 2.1M cattle.

The stat are quite hilarious actually, and prove how popular the game is – as if selling over 1.5M in two weeks time wasn’t proof enough.
