Starting back in 2017, I started recording my time spent gaming each day and which game. This will be a brief breakdown of time spent gaming using R and packages dplyr, ggplot2, and directlabels. Using dplyr for data manipulation, ggplot2 and directlabels for plotting.
We have already loaded the data, so lets start taking a look.
|League of Legends||5756|
|Call of Duty: Black Ops 4||3835|
|Rise of the Tomb Raider||986|
|Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus||722|
|Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice||388|
|Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 beta||235|
|Keep Talking and Nobdy Explodes||140|
|A Hat In Time||117|
|Dragon Ball FighterZ||97|
|Team Fortress 2||64|
|Super Mario Party||62|
|Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime||59|
|Super Smash Bros. Ultimate||43|
Games like League of Legends, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds stand out as games played the most. This is entirely due to the multiplayer aspect. Other games, like Team Fortress 2 and Hearthstone I played a lot in 2017 and earlier but have since stopped playing. The Switch games, I only recently started playing at end of the year, so very low. The same is for TableTop Simulator.
Removing the low played, say less than 3 hours, we will plot up the cumulative time played through the year.
From this, even though League of Legends has my highest play time from 2018, I stopped playing around October and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 takes over.
Looking back at total time played, lets take a look at my monthly gaming time.
Winter months here are cold, mostly relating to the time played being higher. I also know that July, August, and September I had spent almost all my free time cycling, running, or just being outside while it was nice. The month of June is larger as I had my wisdom teeth out during this time and could not get out as much during the healing.
Lets take a look at the monthly time based on game:
