I have poor, sensitive eyesight, the attention span of a rodent, and bad hands, so my longest is nothing special, probably around 4-5 hours.

Jeesus, some of you guys are crazy. 12-24 hours!?

If its a game like Baten Kaitos then its going to take more than just an hour to get through it. So 2 to 3 hours tops I spend on a game

Probably around 8 hours. I remember putting in close to 40 hours in Uncharted 2 multiplayer over the course of 3 day cuz it was double xp and was super close to reached the max level. It took me around 260hrs to reach max rank with the help of some double xp weekends.

I think maybe the most I've played in one sitting is 4-5 hours. I'm not really sure. These day's I'm lucky to get 45 min-1 hour after I get home from work.

I was doing a series of PCWs and one cup on promod (the esport FPS, modded from CoD4) with my new team. I think the session lasted somewhere around 10 hours. Playing a singleplayer game for hours on end is one thing, but arranged matches in a competitive online game, where I can't take breaks as I please? It was surprisingly fun, but dear god it was tiring:P

7 hours max on a summer day with nothing to do. We used to be on Halo 3 and reach from 7 until 2-3 am and we'll probably be doing that for Halo 4.

Once me and some buddies made a point of doing a 24 hour gaming marathon. Started with Castle Crashers, than Gears, and finished with some Halo. To be quite honest, the last 6 hours or so weren't especially fun lol.

My longest non stop will be Super Smash Bros Brawl and it was like 10 to 12 hours on a sunday.

Usually now the most non stop I do is 2 to 3 hours at least once every two weeks.

I can't remember specifically, but I think the longest I've gone nonstop is an upwards of 8 hours. I usually have to give myself breaks, no matter how absorbed in a game, so I've probably surpassed 8 hours total in a day multiple times.

10 straight hours of GTA SA. Years ago, when I did'nt really know any better. Started at around 6pm one Saturday afternoon, ended 4am-ish the next morning. Not something I'm 100% proud of, as I could never do that again. 3-4 hours is the max for me these days. After too long, I feel like I have to get up and do something else.

8 hours. My longest single gaming sessions was GTA4. Assassins Creed: Brotherhood comes in second, I spent 7 hours at one time playing that. I only made a little bit of actual story progress though, I was mostly doing side quests.

The first game that comes to mind is Sonic 06.

It was one of the first games I got with my PS3. I remember having so much fun playing that game.

After I got it, I spent the rest of the day playing all the way through Sonic's story. It must've been like 6 or 7 hours straight. So much fun I couldn't stop myself.

When Alpha Protocol was released I played for 15 hours minus a couple of bathroom breaks and the first time I played WOW I played for 12 straight hours without even realizing it.

Probably around 8-10 hours, but I have 5-6 hour sessions often if I'm extremely addicted to games like Castlevania SotN, Xenoblade, and SMG 2.

maybe 4. Unless we're counting my leaving GT4 on for 24hrs for the endurance races. If not, then I'll go with 4 maybe 5 hours. Not in a long time though. So long that I can't remember what was the last one. I'd guess, RE4 on PS2.

36 hours for Skyward Sword. It was the last day I was home for christmas break, and I didn't want to bring my Wii back to the dorm with me for Spring Semester; I beat Skyward Sword 100%. It might have skewed my perspective on the game a bit.

Sadly World of Warcraft. 10 hours learning Kil'Jaeden fight in BC. Yuck city, but the most on console is probably Silent Hill Shattered memories. I did like 8 hours with one full play through. That game just really grabbed my attention for some reason.

Something like 17 hours the day GTAO went live. It took us something like 45 minutes of screwing around before my brother and I could get into the same game and we didn't want to risk getting off and not being able to get back on.

If you actually mean how many hours without even pausing the game to get a drink or use the restroom, probably 5-6; if you mean hours a day, I used to do close to 10-15 hours quite often way back during summer vacations.

Yay i win, back in 1997 I was unemployed for a short while. Final fantasy 7 came out and I played that baby for 37 and a half hours.

I then slept and played some more.

Those were the days.

I played cod 4 multiplayer for 16 hours. I had post traumatic stress disorder by the time I was done. When I laid down to sleep and closed my eyes I keep seeing grenades blowing up.

Freelancer . That game is so addicting . Played it whole day after day until it was finished . But I do take a break after 3-4 hours of gameplay and sleep at night :-P

Same Goes for Total War games , specially Shogun 2 .

Another game that had me playing it nonstop , and I woke up at 4 am to install it (because downloading was about to complete when I slept at 12am) was Alan Wake . Incredible game .
