I'm sure most of us if we're gamers or have ever considered ourselves one, will have played a game that has captivated you for hours. I've had several, some Final Fantasy, Red Dead Redemption, GTA V and GTA San Andreas, and many others, but my longest gaming session was with World of Warcraft back in 2005 or 2006, I don't remember the exact date, what I do remember is that I played for about 16 hours straight, I was a kid and that game captivated me, it's not something I'm proud of but that's how it happened.
What has been your longest gaming session?
Poker for 36 hours count? It was live, too, in Vegas.

15 hours on Civ VI f****** madness !
reply
Civ III was probably my highwater mark. I imagine I also logged something like 15 hours straight.
reply
Civ is super addictive! I got it into my head that I had to finish the game, and I didn't go to bed before it was over.
reply
You almost match me! Now comes Civ VII, take it easy 😜😜

without a doubt, pokemon haha ​​when I was a kid the first one (GameBoy) couldn't save the game, so you had to take it to the end as much as you could before the batteries ran out (2 AA batteries were used) or before your mother would send you to sleep or demand some task from you that would make you stop playing. hahaha in a single day at that time I played up to 10 hours or more, it was crazy. I have always enjoyed games so during my adolescence I was also able to enjoy a game console, and without thinking too much I could say that the game to which I dedicated the most hours, both in one day and in general, was (Gran Turismo) What a special day it was those earning licenses and completing circuits.
reply
Gran Turismo 2 was unique, I don't know if you remember, I played that game for many hours, on the other hand, I remember hiding the game boy under the pillow so that when my parents went to sleep I could take it out and play Pokémon for hours in the early morning, then I went to school half asleep.

I played an entire season and playoffs of Madden in one day. Quarters set to 5 minutes though, so with stoppages games are about half an hour. I guess that is around 10 hours but I didn't play 10 hours straight. Played for a few hours in the afternoon and then went and did other things for awhile and played the rest at night until around 3am.
This was before my daughter was born. My wife and son were out of town visiting family. I stayed home to finish up some work stuff in the morning but I didn't have anything to do in the afternoon so I just started playing and then went back to it later and it got to a point where I was so far in the season it just made sense to finish it.
reply
I've never played that game, but something similar has happened to me with Fifa, especially with Fifa 18, I spent many hours in a row playing the season mode of that game.
reply
I dont remember gaming so much, but I remember spending 6 hours or so playing starcraft together with my brothers. Now I feel it isnt about gaming, companies like netflix want you to binge watch tv shows.
reply
I also spent many hours playing Starcraft and Warcraft, great games.
reply
I played with my brothers. We had an apple talk system.
reply
I don’t know in a single session but when Elden Ring came out I ended up putting in close to 200 hours in total. Way too much….I’ve virtually quit games since then apart from Nintendo with my kids.
reply
200 hours is a lot, but I have played games in which I have dedicated 1000 hours in my adolescence, or even more, Elden Ring is a great game, perhaps 200 hours were deserved
reply
For sure it is a great game.

I was on Skype call (if you remember this app) and played DOTA with my friend. When we ended the last game Skype showed me about 8 house of blah blah blah
