Longest You've Played A Game Non-Stop

Postby Arius » 11 Nov 2009, 01:11

18 hours or so was my maximum. I just sat down to play Fallout 3, longest break I took was about a minute to pay for a pizza.

But, I've done a lot of random game sessions like that. Usually when a game comes out, I beat it the day I get it. Unless it's a slow paced game, like Harvest Moon or JRPGs.

Edit: I might have had longer. Not sure.

39 hours I think. A no longer existing ORPG called bloodscape. Energy drinks are a hell of a thing.

This is why I don't play ORPGs anymore.

We once played D&D for 18 hours. Even when we were out to get munchies we still talked about the game/story.

As for Video games my record is probably 8 hours, the day after I got Shadow of the Colossus. I may have played something else for longer but interspersed throughout the day.

This. I believe it was during a Final Fantasy game. Oh my God the time I spent on those games.

6 hours but if you don't include pissing, shitting, or eating about 4 days.

Non-stop, no breaks from the game? That'd be maybe twelve or thirteen hours or so.

With only brief breaks for bathroom, quickly getting food &/or drink? About three days during a summer break. Only had to stop to take out the garbage and there was a power outage before I got back to the compy. :?

The first time I played the new Sid Meier's Pirates! I finished installing it at around 4pm, and when I next looked at the clock it was 2am.

I was sick as hell once and put on 1 week paid sick leave. I was puking my brains out for two days, slept in the bathtub to save time. The third day I didn't feel like death, so i crawled back to my bedroom and turned on the 360 and started a new Oblivion character. Three days later i turned off the machine. That wasn't three days straight, I literally passed out several times during gameplay with the game still on, and woke up four or five hours later like "Huh? Where'd the sun go? Eh, the dark brotherhood is still waiting."

After that my box started making weird noises, so I traded it in and bought a new one. Good thing I had an old tube tv, or i'd have some nice burned in images on my screen.

I played warcraft 3 probably for 20 hours or so. Although there's a bunch of RPGs that I played like 15 hours a day for a week straight, only stopping really to sleep. I remember playing wc3 until about 5AM and the sun started coming up, that's when I knew I should probably head to bed.

I'm fairly certain I played Call of Duty 4 for 19 hours. My eyeballs were threatening to leap out of my skull and beat me to death with my controller at the end of that stretch.

Well, I got the 5 day survivor achievement in Dead RIsing, which takes 10 hours and I was going for the 7 days, which takes 14 hours, and it froze at about 11.5 or so. So I'd say 12 hours is probably is my longest.

I think I've done around 12 hours in Wow once, but I've done 12 - 16ish hours, with the only breaks for meals and bathroom trips, of Paper Mario, I did this (though that was probably the longest stretch) for about 6 days and beat the game, but I did a lot of backtracking if I remember correctly...

I don't know it's been years since I've played it.
My train of thought is more like a roller coaster that has loop de loops and no safety bars.
I don't know if I'm tall enough to ride.

Oh, yeah - I hear ya; glad you pulled through that, and that Oblivion helped. I intend on using my tax refund next April to get a netbook or something else light and portable (maybe a DS, but a netbook'd be more flexible) so that I can still amuse myself when I'm bedridden; when you're too weak to hold up a paperback book to read, the thought of reading off a screen sitting on your chest has appeal...

Um...cathode ray tube televisions DO get "phosphor burn-in" from fixed images being displayed; they're famous for it. It can happen to plasma and LCD screens but they're less prone to it.

Forty-three years.

But no I once played Ratchet and Clank: Going Commando at my friend's house from start to completion with him in one night/morning, which took a good 15 hours.
