That may actually be true, if you count all the /played between all the players who ever subscribed I have no doubt that it surpasses even old classics that are still around today.Could be something like World of Warcraft with the amount of players and average game time
I guess the charts I saw were from the pre battle royale world. Or maybe there's just more than one way of looking at the statistics, or the authors ere lazy.According to this, the game with the most players is PUBG, with over 1 billion, including mobile users. However, mobile accounts and PC accounts are not connected as far as I'm aware, so there's probably a lot of doubles in there.
This site also shows the peak concurrent number of players on Steam for PUBG is a little over 3.2 million players:
To compare, Fortnite's Travis Scott event reportedly had 12.3 million concurrent players.
I couldn't find a number for PUBG directly, but taking the average number of concurrent players per month since the beginning over all months, then multiplying that by the total number of months, times the average number of days per month, times the number of hours per day, I get to 2.2 million years just from Steam alone.According to this, it's Fortnite, with a total of 19.2 million years of gameplay:
I'm not sure how accurate those numbers are and it obviously cannot account for all games, but that's a lot of hours nonetheless.

That's probably the right tangeant. The most "played" games in general are mobile games so if one of them managed to overtake Tetris then we have our answer.I place at least one bet on candycrush with it's over 250 milion players.
Found this source (no idea how accurate it is) stating total playtime being 75 bilion houers. So probably not Candy Crush then
