Longest single session of playing one game?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Longest single session of playing one game?

One day I spent a whole day playing Pokemon Crystal.

I used to play it for long sessions a lot after my copy stopped saving files, and I did it a lot when I went to my granfather and grandmother house in school break. I was always discovering new stuff in the early game parts I,used to plsy and loved it, but I also liked to go as far as I could, and one day I simply played the whole day.

I woke up 6 AM and grabbed my GBA, plugged the charger on so I wouldn't have a problem playing and having full battery when needed to unplug it, so I played until launch time and this time didn't stopped to eat, I ate while playing, I only stopped to take a bath but it was always on and I grabbed it again right after it, and only stopped playing 11PM when I went to sleep.

So 17 hours more or less.

Once I played TF2 with some friends for about 8 hours straight with food-breaks and such, but I don't recall doign stuff like that very often :P

I think maybe 16 hours. Runescape, though I'm not really sure it could be classified as playing since I was doing a task in-game that required little input while I did other things like watch TV.

Other than that, I've put 12-14 straight hours into several shooters over the years, mainly CoD and Halo.

I played Metal Gear Solid 4 in one sitting with my best mate. That must've been 18 hours or so.

About 16 hours for Twilight Princess, it was actually two 8 hour sessions, one of which had a short meal break where I just paused, and inbetween them I turned the machine off for 45 minutes for dinner.

82 hours, I wanted to make it to 100, but I fell asleep.

I think that is legitimately one of the longest gaming sessions of Duck Hunt that anyone has ever had.

That's pretty intense, I can't even imagine playing 80 hours of Duck Hunt.

I'm not too sure about mine, perhaps Team Fortress 2 a while back. Probably spent close to 15 hours some days on it.

16 hours with "Skyrim" - ordered in all of my meals - was the longest I've done since I was a teen. I played "Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver 2" for nearly 24 hours back in middle-school (6th grade). Most of that was loading screens, though ;)

In all seriousness, that game had terrible load times. "Bloodborne" reminds me of it in that way. Both great games, despite the performance issues.

Either Mario Galaxy 1/2, Pokemon Crystal, Persona 4 Golden, or Lost Odyssey.

I want to say Mario Galaxy as I played that nonstop for like 15 hours.

Borrowed World at War from my neighbor, spent the whole day, from morning to around 11 pm, playing the campaign on hard difficulty.
So many deaths on the last attack on Berlin.

I think close to ten hours. It was either Nintendo Land (when I got my Wii U), or SSBU.

Bet with bluedawgs: I say Switch will outsell PS4 in 2018, he says PS4 will outsell Switch. He's now permabanned, but the bet will remain in my sig.
