I accidentally inflated my time in Riders of Icarus. You have to be logged in for half an hour to collect your daily login gift, so I logged in, wandered off, and didn’t come back until this morning. Oops.
I can’t tell you how many hours have gone into BDO that way, except I did that on purpose. AFK fishing is my hobby within a hobby. (Hobbception?)
I used to keep an eye on my played time in EQ1, occasionally marveling at exactly how much of my life was spent in Norrath. I couldn’t afford travel or a second home on the beach, but I could go have an adventure in EverQuest. It is like reading a good book without the reading part.
