CS:GO, Valve’s groundbreaking multiplayer FPS game and Steam’s most popular game — even ahead of Dota 2 and GTA 5 — has naturally amassed a ton of collective playtime since its launch in 2012. However, the online shooter has just crossed an important and shocking new threshold, where terrorists and counter-terrorists have officially been killing each other since the late Paleolithic.
At its peak, CS:GO had a staggering 928,329 concurrent users. That number has now dropped to 676,642, but it’s still well above the rest of Steam’s top five games, with Dota 2, Lost Ark, Rust and GTA 5 failing to come close to CS:GO’s enduring popularity. A decade later, along with countless competitors in the competitive shooter space, that alone is a huge achievement, but one that pales in comparison to another CS:GO record that spans our entire The geology, topography, and anthropological history of the planet.
441,579,584. As of this writing, that’s how many hours CS:GO players collectively put into Valve’s online FPS. Difficult to understand? Well, let’s try to put it in perspective. Some quick math (i.e. an hour to years converter on Google) shows that CS:GO fans have been shooting, slashing and blasting for a total of 50,408 years – the 50,000 threshold in August Passed on the 4th, when CS:GO players completed more than 14 million hours of multiplayer carnage in a single day. The ancient historians among you – at least one of you – attribute this number to the Late Paleolithic, about 50,000 to 12,000 years ago, when Homo sapiens first entered Asia and Eurasia from Africa and left some Earliest evidence of settlements and artwork.
So, think of it this way: if you could build a time machine, give yourself a Steam deck (it’s hard to say which is harder right now), then you go back to prehistoric Vindija and gift Valve’s Pocket PC to some lonely, unassuming caveman , and then also instructing them to do nothing for the next 50,000 years, but play CS:GO all day, every day, only this week, in 2022, Anno Domini, they will finally get a match with the actual Counter Strike Fan base as much game time. Imagine how good they would be with AWP. Can’t bear to think about it.
