Dawn of War II deserves to be higher on the list, but as it’s technically three separate games my Steam playtime is misleading. I played the original Dawn of War series much more, but that was prior to my current Steam account (mostly internet cafes).
The majority of my time playing LE involves standalone clients I’ve built myself.
Those are in order of most-played to least-played according to Steam, though when 4/5 numbers are misleading they’re probably not worth including. Looking at games I’ve played exclusively outside of Steam, I sank a lot of time into Diablo II, Diablo III, World of Warcraft, and the original Guild Wars series. I probably played C-12: Final Resistance more than most people did…
@Llama8 Were you playing SWTOR primarily with friends, pugs, or solo? I tried installing it a few times but I never really got into it. I’ve played less than 100 hours - probably less than 60.
@XLVI_carpo Did you play much of Ember? Bit salty DE changed World on Fire, ngl.
@billysielu I’m a fan of space games, but I think I was worried about getting too into EVE.
I played WoW a lot before trying it, and didn’t want another game ‘taking over’, so to speak.
I have children (& a dog), I’m used to being ignored. I just ignore them back…
Yeah, I played it with a friend from Sacred 1 & 2 and his guild from LOTRO. We started at launch (though I got into the beta) & played all the way through to probably ~3 years ago or so when they started releasing the Gods of the Machine raid bosses piecemeal. We were primarily a raiding guild & them (effectively) having a ~1-2 year gap in between raids & that kinda pissed us off (along with the previous 2 expansions being solo content in an MMO).
Ember was the first Frane I got the Prime version. So I played her a lot. But I quit Warframe some time ago so I did not recognize they removed World On Fire (WTF).
I played Nidus and Valkyr primarily.
They go Steam EA on November 18th. I’ll defenitely give it a shot. While it’s not PvP, I’m looking forward to meet all the Freelancers again. There’s hope they may implement a PvP mode if/when the game becomes healthy.
It was one of my saddest moments in gaming, when they shut down.
Agreed. i was deeply saddened. it was one of the few games i had a badge of honor so to speak. there was an emblem in game that was a red cracked bell. which was my old channel logo! could only be obtained through beating me or giveaways. So very few had it cause i was one of the few top players! So when it went down it stung a lot for me since it was still one of my favorite games of all time cause it fit that weird niche of Tactical teamplay. So ill 100% check it out
Marvel Heroes is my most played game of ALL time. I have something in the realm of 5-6k hours, because it was not released on steam immediately. (And to this day it was my most fun game i have ever played). I probably have more play time on my main two main characters in Marvel Heroes, than gametime on any other games
After That i was a huge MOBA addict. I probably played all mobas, but most of them are not on Steam. (Played thousands of hours HoN and LoL (early LoL, when it was way better >.<)
Also not on this list is Warhammer Online: Age Of Reckoning, because it was not on steam (i think i gathered like 2,5k hours on my old xfire account, anyone remember xfire?!?), which was my first “online game” i palyed and to this day, my best MMO experience.
TLDR. i dont use steam alot cause i prefer standalone clients. so if we included those then Smite be number 1 at 12K hours followed by WoW 9k hours. Then PoE 4k hours. But since this is steam only i gave my legit numbers
Really liked some character designs in Smite, but never liked the 2-axis 3rd person scheme. (Only played beta(few month after release and then on and off very sporadically)
But played paragon Top 1%, which was way more my alley.
