View hours played check playtime Garry's Mod
Garry's Mod is not your usual game, it's a sandbox game where you can break the limits of physics and play with things you created. Of course, it's not another Minecraft where you can mine, craft, build and create mechanisms with Redstone Dust. It's a more complex game (if you can call it that), which offers great freedom. Garry's Mod is only available via the Steam app on PC, so that's the only place where you can check how much time you played it.
