Everyone is making a chart of their gaming for the year (Belghast, Liore, and Wilhelm at least), so I thought I’d see if I could get ManicTime to export something into Excel. After judicious flipping, coloring, and rearranging, this is what I got:
My data only starts in February, so January is missing. It probably might have had some WoW in there, but definitely more SWTOR and FFXIV.
I’m a little disappointed to see that ManicTime is dead wrong about some of the times it recorded. For example, I played a lot more Witcher 3 than it thinks I did-Steam reports 134 hours. Steam also reports that I played 295 hours of Dark Souls II. Ditto Fallout 4, which should be 110 hours. I don’t know what ManicTime was thinking. Maybe I need to look for another tracking program.
I was actually surprised to see that I logged into Guild Wars 2 every month. I can only speculate that it’s because it’s one of the quickest MMORPGs to get into (ie. the time between clicking the desktop icon and the time you’re playing). Or possibly it was counting launcher times as well as playing time, because I run the launchers of most MMORPGs pretty often.
