Tell Us Dammit: How Many Hours Do You Have On Fallout 4 So Far?

If you want to enjoy Fallout 4 the way it was meant to be enjoyed, don't get married or have children. That's my advice.

I'm hearing about people at level 30 something, with 40 hours played. I'm sitting here at level 8. These tears won't stop flowing.

The biggest time sink for me this year has been Metal Gear Solid V. That game is ridiculous. 30 hours in and I'm 18% complete. Now I've got a Fallout 4 to contend with. This is a problem.

But it's a good problem. I'm really loving Fallout 4 so far, despite the terrible menu systems, despite the crafting which isn't really well explained at all. I'm loving the universe and (surprisingly) the combat.

How many hours do you guys and girls have so far?


    I have 19 and a half started last Saturday, also level 18

    I've been so busy with work, I think I would be lucky to have 10 hours. I wish I could have more time to sink my teeth into it

    10 hours, level 11. Spending way too much time on the farming / settlement building stuff, but I'm having fun so I'll keep doing it. Haven't even gone to diamond city yet.

    Have to resist playing during the week or I won't be functional at work due to lost sleep time. Play time is pretty much just a weekend thing.

    For the record, yes, I'm married. But my lovely, understanding wife is also letting me play Fallout 4 on her PC after mine died.

      Almost exactly the same. 12hrs level 11. I either get distracted by settlements or everytime i try to get to diamond city i spot something on my map/radar and go walkabout.

        I heard that. I try to get things done and end up getting exploritis

    The answer is "Not enough." Between 'that place I go during the day' and my wife kindly arranging social functions every single effing night I'd say I've only played 25 hours.
    Another 4 hours sleep last night. I'm sure I'm not alone there.

    This Sunday though!

      I literally had the sleep conversation with my wife at lunch time, I am running on about 5-6 hours every night this week and it finally kicked me in the arse at about 1pm....going to shoot for 7 hours tonight!

        I said that yesterday!!
        Going home for an hour kip straight after work. Nope. Didn't happen.
        Going to be in bed by 11pm for 7 hours kip. Nope.
        Woke up OK today surprisingly but yesterday was bad.......real bad. I have to get some sleep tonight though. Like you say, you just can't go on like this! Damn great games!

    I’m at about 30 hours but that includes two full-day sessions that I’d booked in with the missus the day the release date was announced.

    The problem is it normally takes about 15-20 hours to get sunk into a Bethesda title. Once you get a decent chunk of the story out of the way and a long list of side quests the game really takes hold and becomes even more addictive!

    I got a mild lecture last night about how “we’re in different time zones” so I don’t know how much longer I’ll be able to consistently get 2 hours in after the other half goes to bed.

    I've clocked in about 0 hours, 0 minutes and 0 seconds. That's including installing and downloading.

      I've clocked the same. I'm currently at level 0, but expect to not progress to level 1 by Christmas.

      I bought a new rig (with a killer new card) a couple of weeks before it was released. spent about 30+ hours downloading the fucker (because 3rd world internet here), and so far I've played 66 minutes and don't have much of an urge to go back just yet, largely because of how long it took to download, (plus a scene early on that hit a little too close to home).

      So you and I are pretty much at the same point, NK, but I'm about $2k in the red in comparison...

    I am about 40hrs in so far, and I feel like I have barely scratched the surface. I am taking my time with it though, the way it's meant to be played! i can see myself playing 150hrs +

    I've just hit about 40 hours. Most of that is side quest stuff. The most recent main quest I've done is


    God I love this game.

      I'm in pretty much the same spot you are. I have 40 hours on the dot, same main quest progress and around level 28-29 or so (I can't remember offhand).


    I swear if you give it a chance, this game will consume you whole. I've got over 100 hours at level 48(I'm on vacation) and there's still so much to do, so don't worry about running out of things to do :D

    I've only played it during the weekend gap between work on Friday and UFC 193 so.. about 26 hours at level 23, IIRC.

    All I want to do is play it when I'm at work but when I get home all I want to do is sleep :(

    Yep I'm only level 32 and have 39 hours under my belt but I'm finding myself wandering off away from the main quest to just take it all in and discover new bits and pieces...

    So to paraphrase that great tragic explorer R.F. Scott: I am just going into the wasteland again and may be some time.

    2days and about 10 hours.... level 34 and still havent found Nick Valentine..... He's very elusive

      With 10 hours at level 34 I would guess you have Idiot Savant?

      My first game I got up to around 60 hours and only just hit level 30, I started a new game as a Melee char with 1 int and Idiot Savant and i'm now level 30 again at about 12 hours.

        2 days 10 hours*

        I WISH I had idiot savant.... i didnt go through the perk list when i started, this is going to be my one and only character seeing as there is no level cap... yet.

        I'm so intrigued by the world, it's crazy!

        Spencer17 means 58 hours in total. 1 day is equivalent to 24 hours, 2 days x 24 hours + 10 additional hours = 58 hours in total.

        I think he meant 58 hours (2 days + 10 hours).

    Haha I know the feeling; I rarely game at home, unless it's late and kids asleep, and wife passes out early after long day.

    Most of my gaming's in my lunch break; have racked up 450+ hours of BF4 since its release, most of it during lunch breaks.

    Anyway I've got about 12 hours into F4 at the moment, been playing to/from work on the train too (Gigabyte gaming laptop), though it can make firefights difficult (VATS helps).

      ...I just don't know how to respond to this...I have so many long is your.....nvm, I have much respect for you and your lunch times.

        Hahah lunch is only an hour, but (clearly!) they add up.

    Not enough - but that will change this weekend. An hours mowing on Saturday and take the cat to the vet - after that the gloves are off.

    68 hours on record in Steam, level 26

    ...Ok, in truth my actual play time is much lower than that. As a dad, I have a habit of leaving the game running and just jumping back on when I can. So running the game for 9 hours straight on a Saturday might equate to 4 hours of play time. If I wasn't a dad though? That 68 hours would be higher, and all of it play time.

      levek 12, 20 hours in... Though i reckon a fair chunk of that was eaten by the pause screen.

      Awesome game. Wish i was playing it right now.

    Im at 30 hours lvl 24, I wanna put more time in before The Old Hunters for Bloodborne is out

    Only 12 or so hours, level 8 I think. Was at the cricket last weekend, been busy all this week and away again this weekend so won't move much further ahead than where I am now for a while. Christmas holidays is where I'll really lay into it.

    8.5 hours since release and I'm level 12. So lame hahaha. You get caught up exploring SOOOO easily. only made it to Diamond city last night after finding all sorts of other things on the way. I'd normally smash it on the weekends but interstate travel has been the priority :)

    Yeah I've logged probably close to 24 hours but I would put 4-6 of that idly sitting in the pip boy while I have dinner and get my boy ready for bed. I'm level 16 and have just been wandering around trying to find cool things. I've done a total of 3 quests so far and I haven't got bored of exploring yet. Also have made it to diamond city but didn't go inside. have not gone further south than that.

    5 hours. It's okay. Just not feeling much motivation to play it. Probably the most overhyped game to come out in a while, but then again, it's a Bethesda game so I'm not sure what I was expecting.

    Still legitimately confused as to how anyone thought Oblivion or Skyrim were good games. I liked Fallout 3 but it wasn't amazing. Fallout 4 seems worse in a lot of ways, which is unfortunate. I don't hate it though, and I'm sure I'll end up playing more of it eventually.

    Around 4-5 hours. And not knocking the game in anyway shape or form but now that I have Star Wars that will probably not change for a little while.

    If you want to enjoy Fallout 4 the way it was meant to be enjoyed, don’t get married or have children. That’s my advice.
    This. I've managed a sum total of 2 hours. I don't know what I was thinking buying this when I have a 2 and a half year old.

    I think I've just hit level 12, sitting around 17 hours so far
