This isn't game of the year, this is the most you've spent in a 2012 release.

For me, it IS my game of the year: Crusader Kings 2 at 306 hours (if it's a console game estimate)

my second place... probably Persona 4 arena? I guess? I don't know.

edit: actually second place is ME3 because the multiplayer is pretty fun

also this is 2012 so if you say LoL or WoW I will cut you (I don't care about mists of pandaria shut up)

Max Payne 3, played through SP multiple times and got hooked on MP.

#3 Edited by believer258 (12322 posts) -

Sleeping Dogs, around 20 hours.

Haven't played many 2012 games.

EDIT: Wait, I forgot about Mass Effect 3, which I played for about 26 hours.

#4 Edited by iBePeRFeCT (396 posts) -

I spread most of my time out between games pretty evenly. My most played this year would probably be Team Fortress 2. I finally got a few friends to play it with and probably put 80 or so hours into it. Next closest would be TW: Shogun 2 which was around 50 hours.

Edit: Completely forgot about Diablo 3. That is easily my most played game which was 200+ hours. Says something that I played it that much and didn't even remember it right off hand.

#5 Edited by phrosnite (3518 posts) -

Aside from DOTA 2... Dark Souls:PtDE(PC) - 293 hours. Mass Effect 3 is second(or third, whatever) with 188 hours.

#6 Edited by JacDG (2132 posts) -

NBA 2K13, amazing game, probably 35+ hours at this point, which is a lot for me.

#7 Edited by Pr1mus (3978 posts) -

Diablo 3. Somewhere around 200-250 hours.

It was not a good time investment. It was more or less my bombcast game for a few weeks. Just needed something mindless with no dialogues that required attention.

#8 Posted by gamefreak9 (2511 posts) -

Diablo 3, 150+. Dark souls at about 120(pc release counts)

#9 Posted by TheHT (11998 posts) -

Probably Guild Wars 2.

#10 Posted by mnzy (2928 posts) -

Probably Binding of Isaac, around 40h.

#11 Posted by Bobstar (324 posts) -

Probably Skyrim. Only got around to it this year but god damn that is a great game.

#12 Edited by Chop (1999 posts) -

Devil Survivor 2 with 30 some hours.

#13 Posted by Demoskinos (15295 posts) -

Dragon's Dogma easily. I beat that game 2 and a half times.

#14 Edited by Animasta (14746 posts) -

goddamnit people 2012 releases only D:

(dark souls counts because it's a separate edition but come on)

#15 Posted by PeasantAbuse (5138 posts) -

I think I spent the most time in SSX, the multiplayer kept me busy for a good amount of time.

Most of my game time this year was spent playing older games like Gears 3, LoL, Skyrim, and Civ V.

#16 Posted by UitDeToekomst (761 posts) -

hmmm... strangely enough, I think it was probably Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, which I played around 95 hours of including the two DLC packs. I also played a ton of Skyrim early in the year, but probably not more than half of the 140 total hours I've put into it.

#17 Posted by Marz (5677 posts) -

if my raptr profile is any indication, these are sort of my top few games.

World Of Warcraft - unknown amount of hours probably 375+ hours since MoP came out

Diablo 3 - 375 hours

Guild Wars 2 - 209 hours

Mass Effect 3 - 197 hours

#18 Posted by ESREVER (2707 posts) -

Persona 4 Arena for sure.

#19 Posted by Animasta (14746 posts) -

@Marz: yeah as long as you played it after that's fine I just didn't want people saying "oh yeah I played a bunch in the first half of the year so WoW"

#20 Posted by PixelPrinny (1050 posts) -

I'mma count Skyrim cause modding didn't really come into fruition until this year, and mods made the game a whole new experience.

Other than that, it'd be Street Fighter x Tekken, Guild Wars 2, and Kingdoms of Amalur.

#21 Posted by Oldirtybearon (4998 posts) -

Mass Effect 3. Two 35 hour runs makes 70 hours total. Plus maybe five for multiplayer. Yeah, a lot of the games I played this year weren't "long" games.

#22 Posted by NapTimeSleeper (325 posts) -

It's either Borderlands 2 or Trials: Evolution. I can't believe I've spent so much time playing Trials but I got addicted to the User Created Tracks. I played that game daily for a few months.

#23 Posted by MOAB (430 posts) -

wow, i didn't realize i spent 130 hours playing borderlands 2...

#24 Posted by haggis (1677 posts) -

Probably Mass Effect 3, but only because there haven't been many games that I've really stuck with this year. I'm doing quite a few of the side quests in Assassin's Creed 3, though (my game shelf is pretty bare at this point), and I've probably put 35 hours into it. Otherwise, probably Skyrim (yeah, I know, it's a 2011 release, but I've gone through two characters all the way to level 60). I imagine I'll put some hours into whatever I get for Christmas.

#25 Posted by Nev (572 posts) -

I'd say Guild Wars 2, and Persona 4 Golden. No clue the exact hours, but probably in the hundreds on both.

#26 Posted by Video_Game_King (36271 posts) -

Probably Persona 4, since it's a long game and everything.

Always a joy to see people showing some love for Crusader Kings 2. According to Steam I'm at 278 hours total, so CK2 takes it for me as well.

Other than that, I put in around 45 hours with Borderlands 2 and 30 hours with Darksiders 2. So they would be my 2nd and 3rd.

#28 Posted by JJOR64 (19097 posts) -

I'm not really sure to be honest. I think I spent more time playing older games this year then newer ones.

#29 Posted by MisterSamMan (366 posts) -

Aside from Persona 4 Golden, Mass Effect 3, and SSX. I don't think I played any other 2012 game for more than 10 hours.

#30 Posted by SirOptimusPrime (2031 posts) -

Dragon's Dogma - about 150 hours I think.

Nothing has come remotely - remotely - close to that.

#31 Edited by DarthOrange (3921 posts) -

Probably either Resident Evil 6 or PlayStation All-Stars. Although the later should be the game I spent the most time with by years end.

#32 Posted by fuzzybunny566 (454 posts) -

Torchlight II, 22 hours

#33 Edited by WarlockEngineerMoreDakka (428 posts) -

I spent most of my gaming time this year with free-to-play or alpha-funded titles actually. :O

For free-to-play, it started with about 40 hours of Dota 2. But then I discovered Smite- which has probably gotten almost twice as much playtime at this point.

And then there's Starfarer... That probably has around 30-40 hours to its name at least- despite just being an alpha. :D

Outside of Starfarer- just about every game I've actually bought this year has not lasted any longer than 9 hours or so. :\

#34 Posted by Atlas (2462 posts) -

Crusader Kings II: just under 300 hours. It's also my Game of the Year.

#35 Posted by Herk (201 posts) -

It's Mass Effect 3 for me with around 80 hours and nothing has come close yet, maybe Borderlands 2 will but my guns/gear are so bad right now that I'm getting killed instantanously... so I don't feel like finishing NG+.

#36 Posted by HH (684 posts) -

dragon's dogma, just started a third run.

#37 Posted by BeachThunder (12607 posts) -

Apparently Borderlands 2 (82.8 hours) O_o

However, the real answer is Binding of Isaac: Wrath of the Lamb (200+ hours since that DLC was released), although, it seems a bit weird counting that, given the way the DLC intertwines itself with the base game; also, I don't have a specific number, given that my Steam playtime is all merged into one number.

#38 Posted by Ursus_Veritas (383 posts) -

It probably would be World of Warcraft if we were counting pre-MoP this year, as I resubbed in about April and in the run up to MoP got 4 Level 85's (as in the whole 1-85 shebang) geared up. I've mainly been casually focused on a Panda Monk since MoP though, so I've not played it as intensely. Hell, I've not even gone to Pandaria on those 85s yet!

But as I've not really played much Mists of Pandaria specifically, it's hands down ME3 as the runaway winner. 50 hours for my first complete playthrough, currently just shy of 60 on my FemShep's runthrough (played Leviathan and Omega in this run, I've only just got to Thessia so it's probably at least another 5 hours till I finish), and then a disgusting amount of Multiplayer: 128 hours according to my Bioware Social page! I can't believe how much I ended up enjoying that multiplayer, and then the fact Bioware solidly supported it post release with the extra free content meant I kept coming back on a regular basis!

#39 Posted by cruxking (204 posts) -

i spent a little over 100 hours with diablo 3.

#40 Posted by upwarDBound (654 posts) -

Either Assassin's Creed III or Dragon's Dogma. I'm at about 30 hours in both. As far as new releases go 2012 has been a particularly dry year for me.

#41 Posted by Rattle618 (1456 posts) -

200+ hours of Diablo and probably about the same on Guild Wars 2. I dont think any of the other stuff I played comes close to those this year.

#42 Posted by Redsox44 (487 posts) -

Counter Strike: Global Offensive with about 86 hours. Never gotten in to CS before but it's just a fun game to play for a single match really quick.

#43 Posted by Turtlebird95 (2753 posts) -

According to Raptr it's Minecraft 360 with 133 hours.
Halo 4 would probably be the runner up at 81 hours.

#44 Posted by Cold_Wolven (2327 posts) -

Mass Effect 3, Kingdoms of Amalur and Sleeping Dogs. Fallout: New Vegas Ultimate Edition which came out this year for 360 I played just over 100 hours which god knows how I did that since it would crash every 5 load screens.

#45 Posted by RawknRo11a (569 posts) -

Probably Mass Effect 3 (spend an embarrassing amount of time with the multiplayer) or Borderlands 2 (A.K.A. The Time Destroyer)

#46 Posted by Phatmac (5731 posts) -

Probably 45+ hours in ME3. I rung that game dry.

#47 Edited by JasonR86 (9742 posts) -

Probably Borderlands 2. Over 70 hours (though I don't know how many for sure). Although it didn't make my GOTY list so it makes me wonder if I'm spending my time well. The next closest is probably Forza Horizon or X-Com which had about 20 hours each.

EDIT: Actually, with two characters in ME 3, I probably put in nearly 100 hours into that game. I also didn't add that game to my GOTY list. Fuck.

#48 Posted by ShadowConqueror (3113 posts) -

I've spent close to 200 hours in Diablo 3, so that I suppose.

#49 Posted by Neurotic (632 posts) -

Borderlands 2 and Persona 4: Golden. Spent more time than I was expecting with Tekken Tag 2 as well.

#50 Posted by Jayzilla (2579 posts) -

Guild Wars 2. 500+ hours.
