I’m an avid video gamer with countless hours on Steam (A digital distribution platform mainly for games), with dozens and dozens of games on my account. I can safely say I’ve over a couple of thousands of hours on various games on the Steam platform alone. That couple of thousand hours does not include other games that are not on the Steam platform such as a popular online game called Guild Wars 2, where I have another couple of thousand hours also.
