Almost 1500 hrs for me on Destiny now....no signs of slowing either :)
62 days :shock:

On topic, there are games I go back to and replay relatively frequently (Mario 64, OoT, JSRF, Halo, etc) but there's no single game that I regularly dedicate time to over and over again, week in week out.

Now Ive played some games for worryingly long periods of time. One game of the Amiga took up a whole year, a daily affair. But most recently, NBA 2k14 has taken the cake, I'm talking every day for 2.5 years (was released in 2013), never tired of it for a moment until a few months ago, Ive never gotten so much out of a game as that.

And I *never* would have expected it to be a basketball game... isn't that weird? You'd probably imagine most of your time whittled away in an adventure perhaps, or RPG, but a game that I have no interest in real life I spend an unholy amount of time on. I find that fascinating.

I'm not proud of it, just fascinated.

I want to know how often Darran plays Strider, if it still gets a go these days. :)

SoR2. I haven't got the foggiest about how many hours I've lost to that game, but I keep going back for "one more play".

The Mega Man series. Its burnt into my brain now so I can clear some of them without losing any lives (Mega Man 2, 3, 9 and 10 especially).
The Yakuza series is another that I keep going back to over and over. I've probably clocked up close to 1000 hours across the series now and I've no signs of stopping yet.
Destiny is the other game I always go back to. I've only put around 10-11 solid days into it though...

Would have said Football Manager, but fell out of love with this years version, for as long as it has been on Steam, I have clocked 200+ hours for each one.

I'm sure you already know, but start the game and on Level 1 type in the code number 6031769. A boot should appear next to your lives. You can now access any screen at any time. Each screen includes the number 6 with a combination of the previous five - hold down your selection together. EG '6' is Level 1, whereas '16' is Level 2 and '56' is Level 17 The Warehouse. You can now practice all those troubling levels. :mrgreen: Level 19 us a (sillius) soddus - dally too long and you will miss your only opportunity of a straightforward completion and likely run out of time.

And in answer to the question, I still play MM after all these years. Haven't played SWOS for a while as I haven't powered-up my miggy, but that had taken sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much of my gaming type, especially for a good 15 years from its release - many times I didn't go to sleep at night (usually Friday or Saturday), so effectively awake for a straight two days. :roll:

I still very happily overplay Final Fantasy 6-9, the Zelda Series and Shadow of the Colossus. I also keep coming back to Yoshi's Island - I'm gonna 100% that on if it kills me!

Yeah I'm with you, this years FM is the first one I haven't bothered to buy since the very first Championship Manager. I just felt like I needed a little break from the game.
I do have 1529 hours spent playing Civilization 5 though and love the sound of what they are doing with Civ 6.
