Fifty hours
« on: September 17, 2008, 12:24:17 pm »

I saw a couple people in other threads mention getting the 50 hour achievement.

I just got it yesterday 9/16/08 after buying the game Sunday 9/7.  So that's 50 hours in 9 days, or more than 5.5 hours per day on average.

Man, that's a lot -- way more than I've played any game in recent memory, all the way back to Neverwinter Nights, probably.  I'm not even sure it's counting time you spend in the editors.  It's obviously not counting time I spend browsing the online sporepedia, or reading this forum. 

The fifty hours aren't all mine, because I have family members that play also (mainly one of my kids, though my wife and other kid have put in a couple of hours).  But I would guess they are mostly mine. 

The game hasn't lost its appeal at all.  I'm ready to play fifty more hours, starting as soon as I get home tonight.

So who else has fifty?

Yeh I have 50 aswell.. I got the game 2 days before you so the average will be a bit less.  I remember playing this one fps (americas army) in a holliday around 9 hours a day  ::) Man i was stupid back then.

Edit: hmm btw, didnt they say somehting about it taking 20 hours to go from cell to space with minimal time in the editors? I think Ive led 5 races to space and played around 15 hours of space aswell with alot of time in the editors, such a shame that they didnt really tell the truth back then.

Yeah, that was way off, but they were just guess that long ago.  Even if you're taking your time, it takes less than 10 hours, as we all know. 

I've gone cell to space with two creatures, and I'm half way through the creature stage with a third creature.  I've also played maybe 10 to 12 hours in space.  My wife and one of the kids have both gone cell to Civ once each.

I got it last night, right before I killed my first epic in creature stage. I received the game on Monday, the 8th.

I got a lot of achievements last night; Identity Crisis, Spore Fan, Epic Killer, General Custer, and Iron Creature. I felt.. accomplished.

There's also a 100-hour badge, which I got along with the 50-hour badge when I left the game paused for 2 days...

Got spore fan, epic killer, foe, devourer and survivor achievement all within 1 creature stage last night  ;D (and would have gotten: iron creature, deja vu, tribe stage unlocked, evolver, max power, flight of the bumblebee, general custer if i wouldnt have gotten them before). Hows that for a awesome stage?

No 20 hours was how long they estimated it could take to go from cell to the secret at the center of the galaxy.

i passed the 50 last night, but haven't spent more than a few hours in space with any 1 creature... i keep going back and making more content, or starting over.
