Playing video games: how much time do we spend on it?

Announcement: time tracker now supports Universal Windows Platform (UWP, Windows Store) applications in Microsoft Windows 10 operating system!

UWP applications in Windows 10 are very hard to detect properly. Thank you, awesome guys from Microsoft! Just kidding. It took me almost half a year to create a working strategy for Windows Store games. Right now my program successfully detects:
  • Native UWP applications running in fullscreen mode (Shift + Win + Enter)
  • Classic Win32 applications published in Windows Store using Desktop-to-UWP bridge
UWP application detection probably will never be as good as Win32 application detection due to countless restrictions of Windows Runtime API.

The story behind this program

I like to play video games. I used to play them on various gaming platforms for 25+ years, but eventually moved to personal computer. Now I mostly play PC games. From time to time I ask myself:
  • How much time have I spent on a particular video game title?
  • What PC game had taken the largest period of my lifetime?
  • What distance have I covered with my mouse playing my favourite strategy or quest?
  • How many joystick buttons have I pressed playing my favourite fighting game?
  • How does my gaming activity change year by year?
A few game titles give us their completion statistics. But, as a rule, it includes only clean, not total, gameplay time. At the same time, we sometimes replay really difficult game levels for countless hours, don't we?
So why don't we log our own gameplay time statistics? It will show us later how do we waste our precious lives. Sadly, I haven't found suitable gameplay tracking software on the net.
Being not only a gamer but a software developer, I decided to create such an application on my own. In no time it was made. Since that moment I collect my gameplay time statistics. I find this program useful and I hope you will like it too. So I want to share my Gameplay Time Tracker with you.

Who finds this program useful?

  • Amateur players, who want to know on what video game they are wasting their lives
  • Hardcore gamers, eager to compare their walkthrough times of difficult games with others
  • Parents of young players, willing to control time spent by their children on PC games
  • Users of Steam™, Raptr™ or Xfire™ services, who want to get similar functionality for almost any game without Internet connection

Known applications with similar features

  • Activity Log™, embedded application on Nintendo 3DS™ portable gaming console
  • Xfire™, application for tracking online-games on PC (inactive)
  • Raptr™, social network client for Microsoft Xbox Live™, Sony PlayStation Network™ and Steam™ accounts (inactive)
  • True Time Tracker™, application for PC
  • StatWin™, computer monitoring software
Raptr is designed for online players having their network accounts, it will not monitor your offline games. This service is shut down now.
Xfire requires explicit game support. Also permanent Internet connection is required. This service is shut down now.
True Time Tracker has rich functionality, but requires too much action to setup reports.
StatWin monitors almost everything, but it is complex and overpriced.
On the contrary, I am trying to create simple and easy-to-use application designed especially for gamers which requires minimal user interaction. Besides, my application will work with almost any game, already existing or being developed.

How do I start using this program on my PC?
