  1. About 3 years ago I was expecting a really important phone call. I started playing Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor at 4pm. The call came at 7am the next morning, 15 hours later. Wrecked me for days afterwards 😄

  2. Probably when Skyrim first came out. I would work 2-10 and then play Skyrim until the sun came up and then sleep for a bit before work. That went on for a while… 🙂

  3. These days I only play games for an hour before taking a break. When I was younger I would often play an MMO from morning to evening if I had the day off.

  4. Metal Gear Solid 4 saw me at 12 straight hours because I *had* to know what happened next, as an adult who then pulled an eight-hour day at work. Totally worth it.

    OR the time I 100%’d Dragon Age: Origins in less than three days, during the first week of summer vacation between first and second year of grad school. Also totally worth it haha. I was so enthralled by it and had given myself the week to be self-indulgent, so it worked out.

  5. I once played an entire day Final Fantasy X and got almost all the way through the main story in a day. That was a fun time!

    First game that comes to mind is Final Fantasy 7. Must have spent a good 4-5 hours non-stop. Not my usual 30-45 minutes. The game story and characters were so engaging that it was hard not to be enthralled in their developing stories. Fun to explore as well collecting materia and what not. Check out my blog at

    • Cool. I’m a sucker for a good story in video games; they can really draw me in. However, the Civilization series, which I find the hardest to stop playing, doesn’t have a story.

    I guess you make your own story with civilization. I may check it out myself. Thanks!
