Have you ever tried to add up how much time you've spent playing Pokemon?

It gets depressing man.

Pokemon Red play #1: ~350 hours
Pokemon Red play #2: ~200 hours
Pokemon Red play #3: ~80 hours
Pokemon Yellow: ~70 hours
Pokemon Gold: ~500 hours
Pokemon Silver: ~70 hours
Pokemon Ruby: ~120 hours
Pokemon Emerald: ~350 hours
Pokemon Diamond #1: ~150 hours
Pokemon Diamond #2: ~60 hours
Pokemon Platinum: ~200 hours
Pokemon Black: ~90 hours
Pokemon Black 2: ~100 hours
Pokemon Colosseum - Enough to beat it three times
Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness - Enough to beat it twice
Pokemon Pinball: Way too long
Pokemon Stadium: Way too long
Pokemon Stadium 2: Why is this even it's own game?

That's not even adding up the Mystery Dungeons which I've beaten all of or the countless ROM hacks I've played (Pokemon Obsidian ftw)

TOTAL TIME: 2,340 hours, or roughly 98 days... 98 days.... 27% of a year... That is just the staple franchise. I'd be embarrased if that's how much time I've spent playing video games, but that is just Pokemon...

I could of built a freaking pyramid in that time.
*Breaks down crying*

I think it's safe to say that's it 120 days when I add up the Mystery Dungeons, shadow games, Stadium games, and Snap.

No one likes that crap anymore, I bet most the young-ones here don't even know what it is. Stahp wasting your time with your fire breathing animals.

My bad, if only there was a board dedicated to Pokemon where I could post this.

Maybe young'ins would of heard of Pokemon there, maybe. Guess that's just a pipe dream for now.

I can't check my console ones right now. I only recently got Silver, so sue me. >.<

EDIT: The sad part is that all of this combined doesn't even come close to my M&L hours.

Oh yeah, another 60 hours for Heart Gold. Gold was my favorite but I just couldn't bring myself to play Heart Gold after I beat the metagame.

Gen 1 and 2 - Probably under 200 hours.
Gen 3 - ~350 hours
Gen 4 - ~800 hours
Gen 5 - ~300 hours
Other: <200 hours



I take solace in the fact that, of the 700+ hours I have on my Diamond save file, at least 400 of those were spent just pressing up and down and waiting for the egg hatching sound, without paying attention to the screen. Most of the time I'd be reading a book or watching a film while doing it. Sometimes I'd use my toes to press up and down, and use my hands to play a different, better game. Factor in the number of hours that the DS was left idling after I fell asleep playing the game, and it's probably a relatively reasonable figure.
