A lot of people have spent a lot of time playing Destiny, a video game in which players travel the galaxy watching internet commenters write things like “nobody plays Destiny.” But what about Kotaku’s staff? How much time have we wasted on this terrible, wonderful game?


In honor of tomorrow’s Rise of Iron, I pulled up WastedOnDestiny and plugged in the gamertags for all of Kotaku’s full-time employees. As you might expect, Kirk and I lead the pack, but you’d be surprised how many of us have cracked the 70-80 hour mark.

Let’s take a look:

Stephen Totilo

Jason Schreier

Kirk Hamilton

Patricia Hernandez

Mike Fahey

Heather Alexandra

Luke Plunkett

Nathan Grayson

That’s a total of 2,004 hours, or 83.5 days, collectively spent on Destiny. (Riley, Cecilia, and Ashcraft haven’t played the game.)


Bonus fun fact:
