That is... Not something I would brag about to my friends. Then again, if I played any game that much I probably wouldn't have any friends.

It's this kind of addiction that led me to quit playing that accursed game. That, and I never wanna look like this:

No way! That might be exactly why LOTF said what he did!

Anyway, I agree with Mimartin, this guy needs to be committed, if you're playing that much then you have nil life!

That's just a sad situation.

It's an Island. They tend to 'walk.' This man's right!(Insiders joke anyone?)

Anyways, maybe it's a cultural thing? I've heard of Japanese working themselves to death. Talking about dedication!

I wonder who intends to be the star wars version of this man when TOR comes out?
And if he has an answer to my question "Do you get a 'You win!' screen when you finish everything?"

This makes me feel sooooooo much better about my little gaming non-addiction.

Meh...depends...I saw you're playing Beatles: Rock Band. If you're capable of playing the hardest song there flawless you've probably been spending some hours on that game too!

Actually, my dad is a huge Beatles fan, so I grew up listening to a lot of those songs. I'm also a decent singer, and if I know a song really well, I can gold star it at expert. I can almost always 5-star songs on medium, especially if I've heard them a few times. I just watch the pitch arrow very closely to make sure I'm matching it well, which is the most important thing for getting a good score in that game.

Now, mind you, with the Siege of Mirkwood update to Lotro, I just started alt #8 so I could try out the burgler class....

Ditto. I wonder if my Chinese genes have anything to do with it, lol.

I also relized that both of our dads would probably get along nicely, both being Beatles fans.

I'm less disappointed at his dedication to super winning (I have a friend named Vye who is a similar player. He was also one of the first original Jedi in Galaxies) as I am in his seeming lack of any social interaction within the game. It means he literally just sits down for 10 hours, alone, by himself, and just... grinds. Without anyone else.

I mean, I used to play WoW as much as he did but I spent the majority of my time Role-playing and talking with my group and/or guild. The best few years of my entire gaming life were on WoW simply because of the social atmosphere it gave me.

But, he seriously just spends 10 hours to himself every day in this game? That is just... pathetic. Even Vye spent much of his time being goofy to everyone in chat.

Well, maybe he does chat while he does mindless killing. After playing certain areas ad nauseum, he probably could kill and chat at the same time with no trouble.

Yahoo's just firing off those numbers to get attention, they guessed that he was 1) an average WoW player and 2) that he was doing quests for his level. If he were level 80 and doing level 10 quests he could easily knock off more than 3 quests per hour. Also, they said that it would take him 414 days, or a year and a bit, but he has an old battleground title, so he's been playing since at least 2006.

And check his Feats of Strenght. Apparantly, next to his battleground prowess, he found time to do the hour-long die hard raids. First on his realm. Which meant his guild didn't have any tactics whatsoever.
