What's the longest time you've spent playing a single game in one sitting?

Probably one of the games that I played at a LAN party. Though that can not really be counted as one sitting due to frequent short interruptions.

Maybe wow. When the game was released and I started playing it in 2004/2005, I was so into it that I did not do anything else for days.

Mine would be 33 hours of Phantasy Star on the Master System.

The battery save wasn't working for me, for some reason (got the cart used at the time), and I REALLY wanted to beat the game.

Had to play it in one sitting. My mom was out of town at the time, so it was only me and my older brother at home (if she was home, she would kill me!! :p). I thought about just leaving my Master System on all night, but then I was afraid it would crash or something. :p

But hey, I was able to beat the game, so YAY!! :p


Sad thing though: I was 10 or so at the time. Now that I'm 32, I can't even stay awake past midnight. My body can't handle this anymore... I feel old...

However long it took me to beat Half Life 2 upon release from start to finish.

First WoW expansion. Sadly server went to **** and i had to wait ages before i could even enter that stupid portal. Remember charging with my warrior in greens and getting wrecked by random fire demons. Fun times.

When I was younger I had six to eight hour gaming marathons with friends, usually fighting games, racing games, or some type of competitive game. Nowadays my marathon gaming sessions consist of maybe 2-3 hours of Civilization IV or V, then saving and taking a break. I can't sit still that long playing games anymore. I'm 33 now and gaming isn't as much of a priority or time sink as it used to be.

Close to 24 hours straight playing Pokémon in the 1st and 2nd Gen days.

Good times.

Define "sitting".
Back in the days when turning off a game meant starting over from the beginning, if you define "sitting" as "time spent playing a game without turning it off" then I played Super Mario Bros. for like two months.

"Sitting" as in playing through a single gaming session. Without any long breaks, quiting, taking a sleep for the night etc. Just keeping your bum stuck on the chair and glued to the screen for as long as possible.

Longest would be around 50ish hours bottles/minifridge ftw never gotta get up.

I don't believe it -_-

Non-mmo, either mount & Blade or uncharted 2. Played uncharted 2 from start to finish in one sitting. Mount & Blade is mount & Blade. Heh.
