There's been a fair few, but the stand-out ones;

Elite (Speccy)
Wipeout 2097 (PSX)
Battlefield 2 & 2142 (PC)

Just reaching about 250 hrs between Fallout 3 & New Vegas in recent months

Syndicate (Amiga) lost a LOT of hours to that too!

All of these are games you keep getting better at, as opposed to repeated play throughs of the same game, which I don't tend to enjoy much. Particularly Wipeout 2097, I used to be insanely good at that ;)

Snap. I had to eventually wipe it from my hard drive and throw the disk away. Amazing how hours could seem to vanish in minutes though.
Yeah, its a truly evil game. Can't stop playing it at the moment. I can stick it on in the early evening to get a couple of games in. Can easily start playing at 6-7 pm and lose the whole evening. And never achieve anything!

World of Warcraft ate a fair chunk of my gaming life when it was released. Not played it for a year or two now though.

Mario Kart-Snes. Wasting days trying to shave .000.1 sec from the first track lap times. Truly, it got "weird" the amount of time i spent doing that.

To be honest, untill Fallout, i never really shut myself in a dark room and bid fair-ye-well to my life. I was quite an ative memeber of social sociaty until that.
Oh and Mortal Kombet (9?!-i think), the latest one on 360. The top of the tower where you have to beat up four boss folk on one energy bar. First and last time im destroyed a pad in rage.

For me it has to be 'Final Fantasy 8'. I have spent hundreds of hours playing that game and have recently started playing it again on my Vita.

Others would be the Lucasarts point and click games, Monkey Island 1 & 2 especially. Also 'Discworld'.

Not so retro, but 'Little Kings Story' on the Wii got over 100 hours clocked up on it as well. Best game on the Wii IMHO.

One of the football manager games (forget which, it was so long ago; but I do remember taking Wycombe to Conference title and beyond) on the Amiga got me started on long sessions, but even that game paled to SWOS. I'd start by around 9pm and still be going by breakfast the following day. I would aim to complete an entire season each session and keep checking the progress of teams in other leagues. Crazy! :oops: :lol:

The Tony Hawk series, probably. Although I've sent Mario plummeting to his death a lot too.
