"I am not really much of a video game person."
I say this fairly often, probably because I look like the type of person that should be a video game person. And, well, I've recently come to the conclusion that maybe all this time I've been lying to myself.
I would say "hey, I only play three games - Civilization, Halo, and X-Com. I'm obviously not a video gamer."
And I would believe it.
A few days ago, I was writing a blog post when I accidentally opened up my Steam account. This account apparently tells you how many total hours you have spent playing games. And I was stunned to see this:
Yyup. Four hundred and nine hours. And this is a game I've owned a little over a year. To put it another way, I've spent seventeen days playing this game.
And x-com is my least-played game out of those three I listed. I seriously dread to see how many hours I've spent playing the various halo or civilization games.
