Gaming What's the longest time you've spent on a video game?

Recommended Posts

last couple years, I spent most of my free time beating out Mario Kart for the Wii, and Wii Sports. And of course, practically all the games on my cousin's Playstation, but that was so long agao I've practically forgotten.

Also, when I was much younger, I used to play on my Nintendo 64 and Game Cube ALL the time. I used to love SSB! Yeah, and I still have all those old video games! They just don't work anymore. Bummer.

 

Recently, I got Super Mario Galaxy (for my wii), so I'll  be working really hard on that for this Summer, I guess.

 

I know, you guys are probably thinking, 'wow, she really loves Super Mario'. Well, to be honest, my family has always been a huge Mario fanatic. Heck, Nintendo is probably one of the few video games I play.

Out of all the games I played, Team Fortress 2 is what I've played the most. I currently clocked in 2030 hrs. as of this post. Since about a year ago.

 

Other games I spent alot of time on was Super Mario Galaxy 2. I have other games I played alot, but I can't think of any now. I'll edit this post when I think of some.

I have 200+ hours on a few games, some of them being: Civilization Iv, Civilization V, Pokemon: SoulSilver, and Battlefield 3. I'm sure there are some others I'm forgetting.

Skyrim. Real shock, eh? It's too immersive, I swear! I start playing it in the afternoon, then the next thing I know it's 2 in the morning! It's what's messed up my sleep schedule. I've literally played 91 hours of it.

 

Besides that I always get too into playing Minecraft, and I believe I was so addicted to Sonic Colors that I beat it in a day.

For some inexplicable reason, I'm spending a huge amount of my time playing Mario Kart 7. Don't ask me why.

 

I've also been playing a bunch of Portal 2 lately.

I've have no idea how much time I've put into Doom, but it has to be a lot, hundreds, maybe thousands of hours. It's impossible to keep track since I play it all the time.

 

I've got more than 500 hours in Fallout 3 and more than 600 in Fallout: New Vegas and counting, I just started a new Fallout 3 playthrough, and once I'm done with that I might start Fallout: NV again. I can easily spend 100 hours on one playthrough, that's not really a long time for me, and I'm always sure to do absolutely everything. I am the master of Fallout: NV, there's no-one who knows more about that game than me.

 

The amount of time I've spent on them probably isn't all that high, but I've played through Resident Evil 4 and Dead Space more times than I can count.

 

Also, Final Fantasy XII, that's got to be a few hundred.

 

I love games that have lots of stuff to collect, I'm just so obsessed with getting everything, especially one of a kind items. Losing or missing something that I can never get back is a good reason to start a game all over again for me.

Since I can't say for sure how many hours for each game I have, I'll narrow it down to a few possibilities:

 

  • The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
  • Dark Souls
  • Team Fortress 2
  • Persona 4
  • Mass Effect 2
  • Red Dead Redemption

I put so much time into Oblivion that it caused an error and corrupt my savegame. Apparently that starts to happen when you hit about the 400 hour mark on a single save. Yes, one single save. I re-rolled tons of characters and seriously played about 10 of them. (Not quite the same amount though, heh.)

 

Morrowind I probably spent about 150ish hours, Skyrim, steam tells me, is 58 hours, though I finished it on a torrented version before I bought it so add somewhere between 25 and 50 for that.

 

According to Steam (So, just for games I got in the past few years) my most played is Mass Effect 2, at 155 hours.

 

I'm not even going to log onto WoW and check my playtime, It will only hurt my soul. I don't play much now, but I used to.

I'm not what you'd call a gamer, really so I often don't spend much time on games. But of those that I have, the most are:

 

Any Pokémon games. I tend drag them out to amazing degrees.

 

Soul Calibur games. Long after beating them, I spend hours just making characters. I've spent more time in the character creator than I have actually playing the game.

 

Car games like Gran Turismo and Forza. I will spend forever tuning and retuning cars in that. I'll spend more time testing tunes than racing.

 

Flight Simulator. Not so much now, but when I modded for it I would spend hours on end playing it.

Hmm I'd say Halo: Custom Edition. I just checked my old Xfire profile and I have a crapload of hours for that game. I recall playing it every day for hours on end once I got home from school. Don't know what the community is like now or if people still play it, but the community was pretty strong back then. This game was a huge obsession of mine at the time, and looking back I'd say it was time well spent.

Baldur's Gate has without a doubt received more time and effort than any other game I own. The fantastic story, soundtrack, sidequests and ambiance, and the (for its time) incredible gameplay mechanics have kept me playing since '98.

 

Other games that have kept me from responsibilities and more pressing matters are Starcraft, Oddworld: Abe's Oddyssee and Exodus; and both Oblivion and Skyrim. Planetside 2 has also eaten a huge chunk of my time but most of that was from when I was still running with my brony outfit that is now largely inactive. NC and I still play it on occasion these days.

I have to be honest but, Call of Duty: Black Ops II convinced me to invest time into playing it so much until I reached master prestige. Luckily, I don't have to invest time into it anymore.

Probably the Pokemon series and Team Fortress 2. Pokemon Ruby had the most hours I ever logged into a video game before I stopped playing Pokemon after 10 years in 2009 (584 hours... really) and I had somewhere near (or above) 1000 hours logged across the entire series, and Team Fortress 2 I currently have 546 hours logged into.

I think I would have played WAY more hours of video games if my parents hadn't set limits. But the most were probably Pokemon, Oblivion and Skyrim (I'd probably play Morrowind if I had a gaming PC :c), and Minecraft. And some Valve games, like Portal.

 

Once I was playing Earthbound on my laptop for at least 3 hours a day, going slow and steady, and then -- I don't remember why -- all my saves were deleted. I didn't want to go through EVERYTHING again so I just stopped... All that dedication down the drain. I didn't even get the fourth character on my team. WHAT DID I DO ALL THAT FOR?? At least I had fun while I was playing, I guess, but I think that if I had known it would have just ended like that I wouldn't have dedicated so much time to it... And reading the plot on some website or watching someone else finish the game is just not the same. Damn. Then again, games are for fun, so.. eh I guess? T~T why meeee

That's a tough one. Right now I'm spending some time doing all the side quests in Deadly Premonition Director's Cut. I kinda put it off though. I'm gonna get Sonic Unleashed and Final Fantasy XIII so I should spend a considerable amount of time playing through those. :D

Pokemon... Just on my last file on Emerald I had more than five hundred hours.... not to mention all of them before and after. Shooter games, especially star wars battlefront two way back when. Skyrim. And probably a lot of monster hunter I have about five hundred in one of its files too..

Oh! And Tony Hawk stuff way back when. Probably a few things I forgot.

 

 

Life? Missing....

Devil survivor 2 ,Dragon ball z Budakai 3, 

Persona 1-4 (1 and 2 are the shortest and most underrated especially 2)

Pokemon D, SS ,W ( used to be competitive up until a year ago) 

Marvel vs Capcom and Blazblue as well that's about it

I could figure out the time if I wanted to but it probably extremely unhealthy.

Edit: how could I miss Dragon quest 8 and the Megaman X series

(I'd probably play Morrowind if I had a gaming PC :c)

Morrowind requires a gaming PC... from 2002 lol

 

You don't need something fancy to run it. Basically anything from the past... 5 years should run it.

I've been spending a lot of time on Black Ops 2 for the past few months. I realize it's not the best game ever, but for some reason, I get so much entertainment out of it. I've spent a lot of time in the zombies mode because it's so addictive for some reason. I've been trying to get into Fallout 3 and Dishonored, but that game that everyone loves to hate keeps calling me back. It's kind of like the Kanye West of the gaming world. :)

I honestly don't really know, but I think it's probably one of the games in the Smash Bros. series. I know I have a couple hundred hours in just Brawl alone.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

 

It doesn't matter how many times I beat it, I always want to go back and play it again. It is without a doubt the game I've spent the most time on, and I have been playing since I was 2or 3.

 

My absolute favorite game.

  • Fallout 3. Played it on PC and PS3. 
  • Fallout: New Vegas on PC. For anyone playing this on PC I recommend using all those graphics mods like the Imaginator etc. I used at least 20 mods on the game that it looks drop dead gorgeous.
  • GTA IV: Completed it on PC and PS3 and unlocked the platinum for it on PS3. Multiplayer trophies are pretty much impossible to achieve without boosting.

 

Oh yes, and I can't forget Flight Simulator 2004/X. Spent hundreds of hours on it flying around the world. With a huge amount of add-ons it's basically just like real life now.

Star Wars Battlefront 2.  Every single day after school I would anticipate being able to do my chores and then going straight to the Xbox.  I must have beaten the Galactic Conquest mode a hundred times, and it is still my favoritest game ever!!!!

 

But, 3 years ago, some jerk stole it.  Most depressing day of my entire life.  Ah well.  They're coming out with a new Battlefront anyway, so I can't wait to see it. :D

I couldn't say, honestly...But I probably put hours into Red Dead Redemption just chilling at the saloon, playing poker, cheating, getting caught, dueling...And occasionally losing so much money that I murder everyone at the table, shoot dead everyone I can as they flee from the building, then hole up in the now-abandoned saloon for a prolonged shootout with the law. Got my bounty up to 15k once...
