1 - DII : Lord Of Destruction 2000 - 2007
2 - Unreal Tournament 3 2007 - 2010
3 - Quake Live 2010 - 2017
4 - Grim Dawn 2015 - 2018
Obviouslly even though I added the years I played these games it doesn’t mean I played these games non-stop within the time/years window.
5 - For the Fifth one I’m not quite sure… I guess I don’t have a clear defined 5th one. My top 4 are really games I played a lot. I dunno about the amount of time I played these games beside GD (over 5.5k hours)
1.Warcraft 3: Custom maps like dota, footmen frenzy, pudge wars, tower defences, etc. This was my go to thing
2.Diablo 2: LOD
3.Titan Quest: IT
4.Counter Strike 1.6 and age of empires on LAN at gaming centers, could say the time before internet
5.Solitaire, the built in game
It’s difficult with pre-steam stuff. Like, 952 hrs in Dota2 is a joke compared to how much I played DotA1, and with other custom maps and the time I spent in the editor trying to learn mapmaking I think Warcraft 3 easily beats my Grim Dawn time. Grim Dawn had been my favourite game for 2.5 years, with some breaks, while WC3 had been my favourite game for like 5 years. So… 5k hours perhaps?
I was also fiddling with Heroes of Newerth for like 3 years, which I had also played almost dayly, so it should be close to GD, if not bigger.
Also, I was playing both the disk version of TQ and steam, so total time should easily surpass my Dota2 time too.
As for the pre-PC era I can’t even fathom how much I played Final Fantasy 9, Digimon World 2 and some other JRPG.
