My longest binge on one game. Wow! There's been so many! I booked a full week off work when Halo 3 was released on Xbox 360. I barely slept! But, I don't think that's actually the one.
Master Chief has eaten my time over and over again. I'd play the story, then play it co-operatively, all. Over. Again. ...and again.
For all its glory, Halo, doesn't NEED the time of say, a fantastic rpg. These are the things that usually end up eating my time
I'm very picky about Role play games. If they don't have a certain atmosphere, if they're not story-rich, I can lose interest very quickly (over 50 hours of play is quickly, right?). If the game has that story....my time disappears!
I picked it up off the shelf at random. It was a new release, I had nothing else to play, and the box was reallllllly shiny!
Oh man, Bioware know how to get a guy addicted! I needed to see every moment of this games story. And that was the problem. Branching story-archs. Who should I save? Should I sleep with her, or the blue-alien girl? These were all important decisions! And each one led to yet another important decision. And another! And wow....I needed them all RIGHT NOW! The first day, I played for ten-hours straight. The second day.......over twenty-six! Yep, it was over the second day, and into the third. I know I had coffee (that's probably kinda obvious to you), but I don't think I ate. I didn't have time to put down my controller. The Reapers were coming. I needed to stop Saren from bringing Sovereign to our galaxy and wiping out all sentient life.
And I needed to do it now!
I played Mass Effect constantly, day-in, day-out, for a month.
.......they're working on a new one.
