Star Wars: The Old Republic, the latest MMORPG from BioWare and Electronic Arts, already has a million registered users, and they have released how many hours their users have spent playing the game.
[box]According to EA, the gamers have spent more than 60 million hours playing the game, completed 260 million quests and killed more than 3 billion non-player characters.[/box]
I am not a gamer (have not been for over 8 years), but I am baffled as to the cumulative time spent playing this fantasy game.
[highlight]This amounts to over 6849 years of gaming spent playing a video game by over 1,000,000 registered users. [/highlight]
I understand that this is entertainment, but I hope people understand how much time and energy they have invested in this entertainment.
[quote]I have never seen the Star Wars movies so I am not the best candidate to judge and I believe every person enjoys different things, and for me to disparage someone else for what they enjoy is, in my opinion, illegitimate and a waste of time.[/quote]
