About four years and 5 months, and more specifically, at least 5,000 hours with more than half of that in one world, also created when I started playing; here are the stats for several of my worlds, which total 166.55 days or 3,997 hours over 1,134 daily play sessions (about 3.1 years):
These are the stats for my first world, by far my longest-played world:
My most recent world, and second-longest played world:
The world I had before that, and my third-longest played world:
And before that world my fourth-longest played world:
I've had other worlds as well but don't have/can't find the statistics for all of them; most of my worlds are shown here (World1, TMCWv4, TMCWv3, and TMCWv1 are my 1st-4th longest-played worlds):
Extrapolating the average daily playtime of 3.525 hours for these worlds to 4.4 years gives a total playtime of about 5,660 hours, and I have spent virtually every single day playing the game, with a few breaks of up to several weeks when I spent time working on a mod, and even then I was still doing something with the game.
The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
So much nope
I downloaded PE in September 2012, bought PC in April 2013 and got the free Windows 10 edition in May 2015. I haven't really played Minecraft properly since October 2015 but recently I've been playing it a lot with my girlfriend.
Sometime around May or June of 2012, during version 1.2.5, was when I bought the game and started playing my first own world. I've been playing that same world since.
For the few months prior, I played the demo version (which was at the time limited to the outdated Beta 1.5 version). So I started early/early-mid 2012.
I knew of the game from practically it's earliest days, but never tried it until later. I wanted to wait until it was fully released, for whatever reason. Then, one day when I was bored, I came across the demo (I can't remember where originally) which went to a PC Gamer website page and got it from there. Then I liked it and got the release, and enjoyed it that much more. The rest was history.
I play since Minecraft was free, yes, free to play on Minecraft.net ! Do you know Blocktopia? it was the best, the greatest server back then.. The good memories I have playing mini games on that server (zombies and lava survival and tnt mini games :>). I even remembered the good old Minecraft custom client, it was called WOM Client (World of Minecraft Client), the coolest thing about the old Minecraft!
