the most i've ever played at once? (playing Far Cry 3 and some odd games got me close but enough to outdo...) my 8 hours straight of playing Metal Gear Solid when i was young, to beat it flat out, no breaks and no skipping any cut scenes either. now that is something that sticks with ya. ;)

Probably Resident Evil 4, I would play the story 12-13 hours then the Mercenaries for about 6-7 hours daily for 3 weeks. Halo 2 back in the day I played for 21 hours straight.

The longest I have ever stayed up is playing EverQuest. I was finally able to grab a particularly popular monster camp to farm a rare item from a rare spawn (yes, one of those scenarios). It was during one of my high school summers, so fortunately I had infinite time to burn. I was determined to not let the camp go, and I ended up clocking in about 36 hours of playtime until I finally got my hands on the rare loot.

Needless to say, my head hit the pillow within a minute of looting that item. I do the occasional 8-10 hour binge but I will (most likely, depending on circumstances) never do another marathon like that again.

I remember spending almost 5 hours straight trying to beat Angra Mainyu in Final Fantasy X-2.

I was under leveled and didn't know the tactics to beat him correctly.

throughout that whole time my party did not wipe and I slowly picked away at the boss while constantly using Phoenix Downs to revive any fallen players.

I had maxed out on Phoenix Downs and by the end of the fight I was down to 1 phoenix down.

I thought I was going to be wiped out when I was down to my last phoenix down but then the boss dropped.

I once woke up back when I was 9 or 10, and played a borrowed copy of TMNT2: The Arcade game literally all day. Never even got out of my PJ's. I've also had pretty similar marathons of Morrowind when it first arrived, and Final Fantasy 11 Online.

Wow, there are some obsessive people on this thread!

I think my longest was 8 hours or so when I played all of MGS2 in one sitting. Without dying.
