my sc2 save has several *weeks* of playtime in vs mode logged onto it, and we have been usually just turning it off and not save match statistics for a while (awaiting 10/25). my tk5 save has about a third as much.

when i was first playing through fft, then learning to perfect the game through abusing certain aspects of the code, i put over 300 hours into it.

dark cloud 2 -- i spent so much time gertting every single medal in the game, except the ones with monica's monster, because those suck so bad. at the same time, i was levelling up enough weapons to get one of each of the ench of the weapon tree's branches (like 12-14 in all or something) i must have played it many hours a day for weeks straight.

ssb/ssbm -- i liked it because it's a fighting game easy enough that i can include my little brother when playing it and still have plenty of fun.

any rare game, but honorable mention does to banjo-tooie. the breadth of that game was extremely impressive for an n64 so plagued by mediocre offerings.

Mystical Ninja 64. It's only a 12 hour game, but damn was it impossible to put down. It was a game where I had to take it in one shot because you always wanted to see what was next. Upgrade next. Next Robot fight. Insanely good RPG gameplay wise, character wise, and ESPECIALLY music wise. The sound track to that game was incredible. The music alone was addicting.

Others-
Well... I guess I'll throw a bone to KOTORII which I spent 45 hours straight playing. I couldn't sleep until I had beaten that game. Sleeping would interfere with my saving the galaxy.

ES III: Morrowind
- I spent, total, an equivelant amount of hours to 3 months of my life in front of that game. Got everything....I'm pretty sure. Tamriatic Lore has nothing left to show me anyhow.

Katamari Damacy and the old-school favorite alleyway. Both are simple, increadably addicting games.

I am also a recovering Morrowind addict. Good lord that game takes away your life.

I find Advance Wars 2 to be a very addicting game. I've spent more time playing that game than any other GBA game. I'm looking forward to getting a DS so I can play AW: Dual Strike.

Also, I'm yet another victim of Morrowind's addictiveness.

And finaly, Gladius, for the GC. I played that game into the wee hours of the night while at my boyfriend's place. I think he was beginning to regret ever showing it to me. What can I say, I just can't resist smiting people, especialy in a game where you can play as a powerful nordic woman.

YESSS!!! Another person that likes gladius. My roomate and I baught that game (I was interested because I was taking a class on rome) and it ended up being the most addicting game I ever played. By the end of night 1, I was in the middle of Nordaugh in Valens' story (yes, we played for 10 hours straight.) The best part- once you beat it, there was another mildly-different-but-eventually-identical plot to follow. Hoorah!

Most easily causes obsessive auto-association in my brain:

Final Fantasy Tactics Advance
Cave Story
Castlevania (any Castletroid, including SotN, HoD, CotM, AoS,...)

...and that's about all I've played recently.

I easily get addicted so...

Radiata Stories-I played that game for 36hrs when I first got it!

MK: Deception-couldn't stop till I beat the story

Counterstrike-Best FPS ever!

FFIX-my first rpg for the PS1. I couldn't put it down.

SW:KOTOR 1&2- OMG! These are the best games for Xbox!

Gungrave: Overdose- hard game to put down

Battalion Wars-When I bought this game it was 11pm I started playing it at 11:30PM. Next time I looked at the clock it was 11:30AM.

Animal Crossing-I've probably spent over 1000 hours on this game

WarioWare and WarioWare: Twisted- Best games for the GBA

Gundam Battle Assault 2- I doubt anyones heard of this game but me and my friend played this every day for about a year. Me and him were invincible. Then we stopped playing it and now we suck.

Any Harvest Moon game.

There are more but I can't remember them right now.

I would like to necro this thread to throw Borderlands into the ring. I bought it during the Steam sale about a month ago and didn't play it until I got back from Chicago at the beginning of this month. It's now been about three weeks since then and I've put 67 hours into the game. I've beaten it on a single player, and now Dragon_Fire, malevolence and I have a new campaign going. I also have a second single-player going, another file going (playthrough 2 of my original completion) with a college friend, and then yet ANOTHER one going with three other college friends. It's a little upsetting how much I play this game, but at the same time it's been a very long time since I completed a game and immediately wanted to start a new playthrough of it. Generally I'm worn out - I just want to keep going forever.

Tetris wins, but I'll give honorable mentions to Katamari Damacy, Lumines, Civilization II, Ape Escape, Super Monkey Ball, and WINDJAMMERS.

This is me 6 years ago. I'm 100% influenced by zeitgeist in that post. I had recently played Super Monkey Ball and Lumines for the first time and was well into my year-long Katamari kick. I also suspect that's when I started emulating NeoGeo games hardcore, which is where WINDJAMMERS fits in. Ape Escape is one of my favorite PS1 games, so I guess that's why it's mentioned. Nothing to say about Tetris or Civ 2, those are addictive as **** any day of the week.

Nowadays, the things that get my neurotransmitters flowing are grindy RPGs. If I get hooked on an RPG, then I binge until it's finished. My favorite grindfests nowadays are my four D's: Disgaea, Diablo, Dragon Quest, and Dragon Age. In addition to those you can throw in FF Tactics and Torchlight.

My Fallout 3 save file had racked up over 300 hrs by the time I was done with it.

Fallout: New Vegas is looking to end up being even longer. They are just such vast games, and I'm an utter completist. It's a bad mix.

Katamari Damacy.

I hated this game when my husband's best man brought it home right before the wedding. It seemed weird and random with annoying music and difficult controls.

Now, scarcely a day goes by that I don't play it. The controls are intuitive once you get the hang of them, I love the music, and...this is one of the best games ever.

YESSSS. Katamari Damacy is made of win. Playing it is like riding down a rainbow on a unicorn while drinking the laughter of children from a golden goblet.

I've been playing too much TF2 recently.

The good thing is that I've now logged 76 hours worth of playing TF2. This is just two hours less than the 78 hours I've logged playing Recettear: an Item Shop's Tale. I'd like to keep Recettear on top and this is a useful excuse to keep me from playing TF2.

Tetris is very addictive.

I also love mario 3 and zelda and metroid game and ultima underworld.

I used to spend hours playing tetris on the gameboy more than almost any game and get close to 200 lines once,which is very hard.
I was like:12 years old and remember this quite well.

The good thing is that I've now logged 76 hours worth of playing TF2.

76 hrs = 2+ hrs per day for a mere month (if you just started now when the game became free, then it's decent)

FFVII = between 700-900 hrs logged

Honestly, the minigames, the leveling and the morphing to get the sources enough for top stats in all regards ........ testing all possibly theoretically possible secrets before the internet came and told me everything I needed to know... Oh My God, THAT is some screwed up addiction, and had me almost repeating a year of elementary school!

And I still happen to pick up the game for a "quick" play through, so many years later (I know, I'm not healthy)
