If you're one to spend countless hours in front of your computer gaming, you might wonder just how much time you're dedicating to your favorite pastime. Rarely do we pay attention to the clock when we start and stop playing and setting out to manually track our gaming time seems futile.

Luckily, there are simpler ways to see how many hours you've logged on Fortnite, LoL, or Valorant. Perhaps your parent has jokingly (or not-so-jokingly) accused you of being addicted to gaming. More likely, you simply enjoy games and find them more entertaining than the latest superhero blockbuster. But just in case, let's walk you through how to check your playtime for each game.

It's relatively straightforward, especially with Epic Games providing this information. If you're a PC gamer, you can easily find your playtime in the Epic Games Store library. Simply access your library and ensure your games are displayed in list view. Here, you'll find the hours played for Fortnite, Valorant, and any other Epic Games Store title.

But perhaps you want more than just your playtime. If you're keen on diving into your Fortnite statistics, Fortnite Tracker has you covered. This external website uses your Epic Games Store ID to display your wins by game mode, placement stats, kill/death ratio, and more.

Maybe you've never played these games on PC; you stick to your trusty PS4 or PS5. No problem—tracking your Fortnite hours is just as easy. Download the PlayStation App on Android or iOS, and effortlessly access your PlayStation account. The app will display the number of hours you've spent playing Fortnite or any other game in your library.

Checking on Xbox follows a similar process. Download the Xbox App on your Android or iOS device, and access your account to view game metrics. Navigate to your profile, tap on your avatar, then go to the Achievements tab. Find Fortnite in the list, and under Stats, you'll see your hours played on Xbox.

And for Nintendo Switch users, it's equally simple. Download the Nintendo Switch Parental Controls app on Android or iOS, access your user profile, and navigate to Activity to view playtime for all your games.

With these easy methods, you can keep tabs on your gaming habits without any hassle, ensuring you strike the right balance between play and other activities.
