Well, playing games can sometimes be very addictive. I used to spend a lot of my time on playing games when i was in college. We all have our own set of favorite games and when we are playing these games we completely forget about the time that we are spending playing them. I used to spend around 4 to 5 hours on weekends playing my favorite games at a strech or at one go. i know of people who can spend much more time while playing there favorite games. What is the maximum time you have spent on a single day playing any of your favorite games? share your experiences in this regard

When I found out all the time I had spent playing Legend Of Zelda: Twilight Princess I was sooo embarrased! I had spent 1000+ hours playing. I loved exploring every single inch of the map :rolleyes: One time I spent over 15 hours playing in a day. I would get up if I really needed to pee and that was pretty much it. My mom was really upset ?

As much as games are great for entertainment and personal renewal habits, it is important to note that games are habit-forming activities. Why? Because they appeal to the Pleasure Center of our brains. That explains why we experience a high whenever we engage in particular games.

Back when I was younger, and had admittedly less self-control when it came to playing video games, I used to spend hours on end playing my favorites. I think the longest I've continuously played was twenty-two hours with barely any breaks during the time. I don't think I ate much, and I was pretty much glued to the console. I think the game was part of the Megaman franchise, if I remember correctly. I'm not sure which, though.

Oh God I have that one story ready to go every time I hear this question, I remember once I was in middle school, It was a summer of 2011 i think, I Played almost 8 Hours straight of GTA San Andreas, I couldn't stop playing till my mother forced me out at the evening, I felt like i could go chasing after people and hijacking there cars, LOL, coming back from that was like a hangover.

I think The Sims is what sucked me in the worst. I've played that game from 9 am to 3 am. With breaks to eat and pee, of course. But damn did I get some bad headaches after Sims marathons... Worth it.

I once played 7 hours of Final Fantasy X, in one sitting. That was the most extreme one, as I didn't even get hungry while playing.

Sims was a masterpiece of a game. I would get sucked in it for hours on end!

I think when I was still young I used to play a game for 5 hours in a day because I was so addicted with it since I don't have anything to do in our house. It was really enjoying since I don't feel that the time is running whenever I am playing some games before and it was really cool for me.

Honestly, when I was younger I tend to be so much more absorbed to every game I play. So absorbed that I frequently forgot the time and even forgot to sleep and eat. I have parents who are very busy that they just let me do whatever I want. Heh. Now that I am older, I try my best to manage my game time and to prioritize my other tasks at hand instead of the game I'm playing. Well, what can I say, I grew up. But still, when I don't have work to do, I play games for hours.

I believe that the time we play for games decreases as we grow older because we tend to be busy now with our offline and online works. But I guess it is still good to play some games just to be entertained for along hours of work in the office and to relieve some stress in our minds.

Playing The Sims while trying to have a time limit is tricky as hell. That game sucks you in completely. You feel like creating a cute character and a small house will only take you 20 minutes, but then you realize that it's been like three hours and you're just like "Screw it, I'm gonna make my sim reach the top of the culinary career and then maybe I'll build a pool."

I even played for the whole day just to create cute character and a big house. I wasted my whole day off just to design and take good care of my character. Waste of time but for me, it's worth it.

Maybe it wasn't a waste of time because you had a fun, relaxing time doing it. Everyone has to decompress, and sometimes creating a cute sim all day is how we do it!

I used to spent 4 to 5 hours everyday to play Star Craft. I would even skipped classes and meals just for this game. I was addicted to it and it somehow contributed laziness. I was very unproductive and I earned some illness. However, it made me realize the value of time and discipline myself. Playing games is always a fun activity but we need to control it at times.

Well, some games are too addictive that when you get hooked up to it, seriously it's going to be very difficult for you to stop playing because you simply can't let it go. My first console game was The Punisher and it was so addictive that I couldn't stop playing for more than 10 straight hours. It was a very crazy experience for me.

Back when I was younger, I think I could play ten hours straight. I would even bring my food to my room so I could eat while playing. But, it would take me an hour before I could finish my food. :ROFLMAO:

I can play 6hrs straight then or when I was younger, but now after 1 hr of gaming my eyes hurt. But it was worth it then knowing you can't play more gaming hours when you grow older because of responsibilities.

Haha, the longer eating duration gets at my mother like mad. She would nag and nag till I finish the food. Kids have nothing much to worry about, and it's why they can play games for longer periods.

My record is 6 hours straight. Now, my daily limit is 2 hours.
If you are committed to other tasks, there is no way of getting to play 6 hours straight uninterrupted. It's not possible to go at such length.

Playing for 2 hours seems to be a moderate duration to me.

The maximum time I have ever spent playing a game in one go is 6 hours. When I discovered Candy Crush, I was so addicted that I was playing the game continuously for 6 hours. I used to change the time of my device so that I can skip the time frame given by the game when I was playing for long hours.

I have been addicted to only one online game. I remember playing the game 12hours straight on one day. It had been a real pain in the back, literally

Whenever I had a game I really get interested into, I spend about 3-5 hrs a day or if it's during day off from work, about 6-8 hrs :)

If I really enjoyed the game, I surely never let myself to stop from playing except when my eyes is already tired or I'll take break but sometimes, after a break, I'll play again :)

I am not very proud of it, but it was during my World of Warcraft days. I am sure many of you here will understand what I'm talking about. It's been about 15 to 20 hours not that particular day, but each and every day ? I was eating and drinking while I was playing, and I would take the time off just to sleep. Coke, coffee, and cigarettes were all I needed, and one meal a day. Crazy times, really. Thank God that is over. That was like 10 to 15 years ago during the golden days of the Burning Crusade, and the Wrath of the Lich King, later on. I get the chills just thinking about it ? I have some friends from those days that are still playing.

I remember that time when my friend showed the game video game called Minecraft and it was a holiday back at that time. I liked the game so much that I have spent at least 10 hours straight without doing anything else - just playing the game. Well, it was before a lot of years and now I don't see this thing happening again. Now I feel like that if I complete a game too fast I would get bored sooner.

I've easily spent 10-15 hour sessions on Runescape before back when I was younger. Summer holidays were the best for letting me do this lol. Part of the reason I managed to grind out a nice maxed account and have some killer times on the game. It used to be my little escape to be fair and I met a lot of people and the game that I actually still talk to even today. It was great fun - still hop on from time to time anyway.
