May 17 - Friday Highlight time! Check this week's out here!

How many hours have you spent towards The Sims 3?

On your origin's My Games tab, roll over The Sims 3 base game and let me know how many hours you've played The Sims 3! I wanna know!

    I don't run my game through Origin (I use the launcher) so I can't give you an exact number but I am sure it is well into the 500 mark, thought probably more. I have been playing since it came out in 2009 and it is one of the only games I play so it's a lot lol.

    I don't use Origin or the launcher to get to my games so I can not tell you from there, but it is the only game I really play so I would say 1000's of hours LOL

    I'd have to agree with this for me, as well. I don't play thru Origin, I use CD's to play. But I've played since release day and it's the only game I really play with any dedication. Considering most days I spend about 12+ hours on my game, I'd say into the 1000's +.

    I don't even want to guess at how many hours I have spent in-game! I have been playing the game almost daily since it came out.

    I suppose I could have a spotless house and fill my time with other productive activities, but none of them would give me the pleasure that The Sims has :D

    According to origin 2 hours. But that's because I don't use origin to play, that would have been when I was testing my game on the laptop I got 2 years ago making sure it was running before adding EP's. I only used the origin copy then because I lost my hard copy of the base game. I've played sims 3 for 5 years now though, I usually play an hour or more a day, many days several hours, some days I don't play at all but those are very rare I usually can manage some time for my game (even if it means sacrificing a bit of sleep to do so). Averaging it out to 2 hours a day (it's probably more, but that's what I'm going with), that works out to approximately 3650 hours over the course of 5 years. :shock:

    All I can say is a whole lot. I run my game through my launcher on my PC, and not Origin.

    Oh my lord, I don't want to look. Everytime I open my game through origin I close my eyes

    I also run my game through the launcher, so couldn't say. I don't think I'd want to say. It's a pretty scary thought. :shock:

    What a fun topic to bump :)

    I only recently started using Origin to launch my game this year so it says 500 hours but it is way more than that.

    Yeah, I don't use Origin or the Launcher but I know it's really high. I've been playing since launch and while I have long periods while I don't play the game, when I do I play extensively.

    I've never run my game through Origin, and for years and years I've bypassed the launcher. I don't even know if I want to know, lol, how many hours I have logged onto this game! Over six years, it's bound to be an unreal number. Especially since many days I leave it running in the background no less than twelve hours a stretch so that when I get a quick second I can pop on and make some progress or continue on a build.

  • james64468james64468 Posts: 1,207 Member
    271 hours. I guess it take awhile to get to 1000 hours.
  • Sorak4Sorak4 Posts: 3,059 Member
    Only about 200 Hours on Origin... Yet again I use discs.

    About 400 if you count the XBOX version aswell.

    Then it's about 700 if you count the Discs and XBOX

    I really don't know but I think I had been playing TS3 for about 3/2 years :relaxed:

    I don't use Origin and I also bypass the launcher, so I have no real way of knowing. I'm sure it's some embarrassing amount though because I have played for hours and hours since the game was released! No doubt the number is over 1000. :o
  • JoAnne65JoAnne65 Posts: 21,776 Member
    It says o hours. Yeah, right haha. I've played the game on a daily basis for four years (except for holidays) and a bit less frantic after that. I think I don't want to know how many hours I spent playing this game, I just don't want to know :D (and more will follow)

    I don't play through Origin but what does 6 years count as? Including using CAW, it is hard to count but lets say thousands of hours since 2009?
  • SurrealSurreal Posts: 3,175 Member
    I don't play through Origin but... it's got to be thousands of hours - had the game since release in 2009, played challenges, legacies, created blogs for stories and families and farms and city dwellers and... and... :) Let's just say lots and lots of hours. I still play, so... even more hours.

    I don't play through Origin, and the launcher is never allowed to run on my PC unless I'm installing store content. But it has to be thousands of hours.
