Street Fighter II - I used to think I was untouchable on that, but I'm sure there's probably better players out there than me.

also - Tetris - I played Tetris for hours at a time without filling up the screen (and the speed is get faster and faster)

Another World is one game that I can fly through in about an hour, seeing as I've completed it so many times!

There's always someone better then you at a game. They're probably in Japan, playing the game right now and will keep doing so for hours... every day.

I've played Golden Axe since 1993. I only play it weekly now, but I used to play it 2 or 3 times a day, every day. When the GBA Sega Smash Pack was announced, I was beside myself with excitement. Then at the Retro Ball at the end of 2005, I completed the arcade version without using a continue. I thought I was pretty handy with nothing to learn until my brother sent me a you-tube link of someone finishing it using patterns I hadn't though of using. They completed it much quicker than I ever have. Awesome.
Thoughts and prayers.

There's nowt wrong with playing Golden Axe 2-3 times a day - it's a remarkable game.

I play SF2 almost as much - I used to play it repeatedly about 4 or 5 times a day, now I play once every two days!!!

The closest thing i can say i am the greatest at is the Discs of Tron arcade game...

Im really not the greatest but i managed 120,000+ at CGEUK 2005

Apparently the world record was set in 1983 and stands at 418,000..

Oh well im nearly a third way there.... :D

Galaxy Twinvader. I can keep it looping round pretty much indefinitely, looping the levels and scoreboard.

The first Wipeout on the Playstation. Flying a couple of effortless perfect laps on Korodera and then handing the controller over to someone else and watching them slam into the track wall at every single corner never gets old. :twisted: :lol:
