Sooooo, while being sick and listening to the latest Beastcast I did some work figuring out how many hours of video content there is on Giantbomb.com
I used qlcrew.com to figure out the run time of each video. I did not include trailers, "Game Tapes RAW" or any video not on qlcrew.com (which means they are probably not on giantbomb.com) I tried to make the number more accurate by removing obvious duplicates like the E3 streams that appears both as single videos and complete (unedited) videos. The WiiU launch stream did also appear as both a 4 (?) hour video and separate videos for each game. And so on and so on.
Edit 2017: The extra PUBG and Destiny 2 raid perspectives are not included.
This list as to make the comparison better to earlier years.
There are probably some stuff that's incorrect here, some videos could be missing because some of them didn't have the run time listed on qlcrew (It says 00:00, I had to manually check all of those), some duplicates could have slipped through and other random stuff I can't think of may have made this not entirely correct. But I think I got it pretty close if not perfect.
