What Is The Longest Gaming Session You’ve Done?

One of the hardest things to cope with growing older is the added levels of responsibility you have to take care of. From mowing the lawn, paying bills, and hanging out with your girl, one thing that continues to be put into the bin of “things to do” is video games. All of these responsibilities begin to take over, pushing out all of your free time to just staring at a blank wall. We both know that with the stressful nature of managing money and adult chores to do, the last thing you want to do is get frustrated by a boss or something in an imaginary game.

A couple weeks after Gears of War 2 came out my girlfriend was out of town and I had a free weekend. I easily played Multi player with group of friends for at least 15 hours straight (allowing for piss breaks and quick meals).

I was scared/half expecting my 360 to RRD.

can't really remember, but grinding Hangman's Noose in GTA to reach level 10 took a lot and doing Petrovic trophy took me whole day+night.

frjoethesecond3107d ago (Edited 3107d ago )

I hate how they made you do that. My connection never lasted long enough to finish it. That trophy ruined gta4 for me.

BiggCMan3107d ago

ratchet and clank going commando for me haha. about 14 hours straight.

10 hours GTA San Andreas

The longest gaming session I had was with an RTS game for PC called "DUNE 2000". I remember starting at 10 o'clock one morning and ended a little after 10 o'clock the next morning! I barely remember the day that passed. Since then, I have limited may gaming sessions to 2-3 hours.


Just did that a few weeks ago. I did it with NO breaks whatsoever. No food, drink, bathroom runs or any sleep.

playing Momotaro Dentetsu (google it) with 2 other friends and an AI is a blast! 28H straight with short breaks only for praying and toilets, my PS2 was ON the whole time! after that we went out for breakfast and sleep a bit. 4 hours later, we continued again for like 12H! crazy I tell ya! that's what I did during winter in Japan! good times

Perjoss3107d ago

48 hours, final stretch in Everquest getting my character from 59 to 60, i literally collapsed and passed out at the end, not proud of it at all, but it was a long time ago and I was quite the fool back then.

GT's endurance races prompted massive gaming sessions, with driver swaps. Im sure im not the only one who coveted 100 percent GT completion and got it through punishingly long races.

Remember Nurburgring 24 hours on GT4? Case closed lol.

bjornbear3107d ago

not GT4 but GT3, me and 3 friends took turns over the 24 hours during the summer while at a residence on holiday, fun times xD

btw - we lost x3 still longest sesh yet i've "witnessed"

otherwise maybe 4-5 hours on any given game between BF:BC2 to Resident Evil 5 (easy game to get carried away in) to infamous to uncharted 2

so many times it happens, never over 5 hours though...bad for the head =(

FURY__UNLEASHED3104d ago (Edited 3104d ago )

Video games is actually GOOD for your head. I got 3 concussions snowboarding and had a lot of memory/brain issues, and my doctors actually recommended I play video games because it works your brain in a good way. Your brain is a muscle like your biceps, and what lifting weights does for your biceps, playing video games does for your brain.

My brain damage was only cellular, so rebuilding brain cells was the way to solve my issues. This happens naturally but playing video games worked my brain in a good way and helped speed up the process.

Lou-Cipher3107d ago (Edited 3107d ago )

I did a 27 hour session on Mass Effect 2, and I have had 20+ hour sessions with Forza 2 & 3/Gran Turismo 1-4, and a 20+ hour session with Tiger Woods 2005.

Got close to 20 hours on Valkyria Chronicles/Fable 1&2/GTA San Andreas/GTA Vice City/Civilization 4/Mass Effect 1/Theme Park/MLB 10: The Show.

GuruStarr783107d ago

spent about 12 hours a time with each of them until I finished them.....did about the same with KOTOR, Nier, Red Dead, GTA 4, GOW 1 & 2, Fallout 3, Fable 2 in recent memory.....

Darkstorn3107d ago

Probably 7 hours long when I first played KOTOR. That game really sucked me in...

Prototype3107d ago (Edited 3107d ago )

72 straight hours on Absolute Virtue in FF11, we gave up when his life was only 1/3

dizzleK3107d ago

9 hours straight the first time i played mass effect 2. i didn't even stop to eat.

Seijoru3107d ago

The mining kinda broke my gaming sessions with ME2 up. Its more of a do a mission a day kind of thing for me.

Downtown boogey3107d ago

Me was -very heavily even- broken down to the different missions and because the story emphasized the characters the experience wasn't very coherent to me.
However, I played MGS4 for 22 hours split into to days so...

ClownBelt3107d ago

9-12 hours for FF 13 when it first came out. I know, I know...sigh...


A nice 24 hour play on san andreas just got lost there was just so much to do :)

yess3107d ago

Did the same with GTAIII, 24 hours, sleep for 12 and another 24 hours, for 6 month straight.I newer turned off my PS2, the ingame clock was way over 1000 hours.
Don't ask, i was unimployed and loved that game.

life doomer3107d ago
