One of the neat/obsessive things you might notice with the Switch is the playtime counter. At any point during a gaming session, you can pull up a menu that shows how long you have played a title in an hour format. As a 30 something with a full-time job, my numbers are laughable. However, there are others with much more free time on their hands. One remarkable individual hit the counter’s cap with the latest Zelda game, Breath of the Wild.
How high does the counter go?!
Let’s take a look at photographic evidence of Twitter user @SamirAIDMAN demolishing the Play Activity counter:

9,999 hours?! That’s 416 days and 15 hours. I know Breath of the Wild is a huge, expansive video game adventure, but wow! Samir must be trying to hunt down all 900 Korok Seeds.
One day, I’ll be able to pump the kind of hours Samir put into Breath of the Wild towards my games. Perhaps I’ll get a job where I can work from home? Or at least take a staycation so I can work on my backlog? Yeah, the latter is way more feasible.
Compulsive enthusiasts, do you one day hope to hit the Switch playtime counter limit? How many hours do you have left to put in before you break the system? Let us know in the comment field below.
