Wii time

So today on the Retro Gamer forum in the Wii Collecting Thread people started listing the amount of time that they have spent playing Wii games according to the records collected and stored on the console.

Of course I had to have a look at mine and I was rather surprised by what I saw. What I saw was this (correct on 11/05/2011):

Guitar Hero III - 88 hours 16 minutes
Twilight Princess - 56 hours 59 minutes
Guitar Hero World Tour: 33 hours 47 minutes
Metroid: Other M - 30 hours 37 minutes
Guitar Hero: Metallica - 27 hours 15 minutes
Super Smash Bros. Brawl - 25 hours 25 minutes
Mario Kart Wii - 24 hours 38 minutes
Red Steel - 22 hours 54 minutes
de Blob - 20 hours 5 minutes
Tatsunoko Vs Capcom - 19 hours 34 minutes
No More Heroes - 19 hours 11 minutes
Super Paper Mario - 16 hours 15 minutes
Metroid Prime 3 15 hours 15 minutes
New Super Mario Bros. - 11 hours 34 minutes
Wii Play - 10 hours 25 minutes
House of the Dead: Overkill - 8 hours 29 minutes
Zack and Wiki - 7 hours 21 minutes
Raving Rabbids TV Party - 6 hours 15 minutes
Wii Sports - 4 hours 56 minutes
Boom Blox: Bash Party - 4 hours 25 minutes
Madworld - 2 hours 29 minutes
Sega Superstars Tennis - 2 hours 24 minutes
Super Mario All Stars - 2 hours 16 minutes
Okami - 1 hour 54 minutes
Punch-Out - 46 minutes
Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games - 36 minutes
Sonic and the Secret Rings - 34 minutes
Mario Party 8 - 18 minutes
Link's Crossbow Training - 3 minutes

Nearly 90 hours on Guitar Hero III. Now this pretty much was the first game that I ever got for the Wii (I picked it up along with the console, Mario Kart, Sega Superstar Tennis and Wii Play), so it would have a few hours racked up on it and the girlfriend also plays on it but I was still very surprised to see the amount of hours racked up on the game.

Twilight Princess is probably the only one I'm not surprised at as it is/was a very long game and I knew that I had put the hours in but the rest, well all I can think is that I must leave the console on quite a lot when I should be turning it off as there is no way on this earth that I played Red Steel for over 22 hours and still never completed it.


  1. Is there a way to get the totals on the Wii or do you have to actually go and tally them all up. I put in over 18 hours on Mario Galaxy 2 this weekend gone alone. Be interesting more to see how little I actually played my Wii in the 2 yrs Ive had it.

  2. Yep, you need togo to the Nintendo Channel on the menu screen and once in there along the bottom of the screen you will see see tabs. Click the records one at the end followed by Game-Play Records and it will show you the entire list with times.

    Since I posted this Guitar Hero: World Tour has gone up to 34 hours 53 minutes and I've started playing Fragile Dreams which is currently at 3 hours 49 minutes.
