Playing since 2001 and still going strong:

This is the true face of PC gaming - complex, punishing, mature games with seemingly endless re-playlablity and modding potential and a dedicated community that will fix games to work under modern systems even if the developer doesn't.

As for the most played Arcade or console style game, I'd say it was either Street Fighter II in it's various flavours or Mortal Kombat 2D series.

It might not be for everyone but if you dedicate to it you can get years or decades of enjoyment from it. :wink:

Let's say PC gaming is not just about playing games, but making content for the games yourself as well. And I know there are some console games that tackle creativity too, but not to the kind of extent as various PC titles, or programs, will.

Freespace 2 still had an active community. They've been at it since 1999.

Hard question. Maybe Gears 3. Maybe Impossible Mission. Maybe Laser Squad. Maybe one of the X-Com games. Really don't know heh.

Halo: Combat Evolved. I couldn't begin to count how many campaign run through and couch co-op sessions I spent with that game.

Mario 64 would be a close second though.

Looking over my collection, I think I was wrong. It's probably Dynasty Warriors 3 I've spent longest on. I used to play marathon co-op sessions with my flatmate years ago.

Hard question to answer, especially when differentiating between hours many hours I've spent playing a game and how many years I've been playing a game.

It'd probably have to be Jack The Nipper for the Speccy!! :D

Manic Miner - Spectrum
Super Star Wars - Snes
Soul Reaver 2 - PS2
Sensible Soccer -Amiga

I could probably list several more but these I simply love to play, Rock and Roll Racing and Turtles Tournament Fighters, SF2 Turbo all on Snes also deserve a mention.
I couldn't possibly pick one of these as a definitive the one I have played the most

For a long time it was Kick Off 2. Then it was Champ manager. I played the PC Baldurs Gate series almost exclusive to anything else for about a year

Probably Super Mario Kart on the SNES. Although the original Street Fighter 2 on the SNES would be in with a chance, since it was my first home console game I owned, and I didn't get my 2nd SNES game for many months after that (and didn't need to thinking back!).

Single game? Either Super Mario Kart or Speedball 2.

Single player game would have to either be.
Pacman, Streetfighter 2 or Rockstar ate my hamster.

Multiplayer online either

Gears 3 or black ops 2.

Cant give a definite answer as I never owned a stop watch back in the day.

Really no idea, but I reckon Tetris, Ridge Racer and Doom would figure somewhere high in my list.
