what games have eaten away the most hours...

Post by Leezer » Sun Mar 12, 2006 6:40 am

for me at least (a self confessed game addict starting with arcade space invaders up untill present day, oh and i do the unofficial hiscore.dat for mame as well !!!)

1.elite (c64) - bad time to get this game start of summer hols, must have played it for up to 6 hours each day for 2 months and then played it for weekly intervals for a LONG time and for many years - get a life i hear you all screem...

2. lemmings 2 (amiga) - the thing with this was that i HAD to finish the game properly ie. getting gold medals for EVERY stage... that took time... lots of time...

3. dungeon master (amiga) - from start to the killing of the last boss took weeks, but 4-6 hours at a time.

4. super mario 64 & zelda (n64) - the only games i really played to death on the nintendo 64

others include cannon fodder,kick-off,eye of the beholder... but never for as long as the above 4 games.
Is it me or is mappy the greatest videogame of all time ???

Championship Manager 01/02.

I don't even want to think about the hours,weeks,months,years I've played that game (and still do).

It should be banned - Its a drug.

You don't even have to search. The original thread is still on the front page.

Yeah Fantasies probably was better but I think I spent more time on Dreams. The A1200 game Pinball Illusions was probably better than either of them........

I would say:

FF 7 120
FF 8 80
FF 9 80
FF 10 60

Zelda (all games SNES upwards) 150 +
Secret of Mana = 100 + hours

FF Tactics (PS1) 100
FF Tactics advance 85
Xenogears = 80

BF2 = 103
BF + DC = 99
BFNam = 105

CS (all versions) = 300 + hours (does not make me good at the though)

As you can see I like to play a lot of long games.
Crown the wise, harness the talented and cherish the lucky.

The time spent playing appears when you load your profile initially, then you can go onto Driver Details to find out how much you have completed. For example, I currently have 7/10 Special Event Postcards, 11/20 Signature Takedowns and 10/10 Crash Headlines...
