    With the lack of new DS games, it's hard finding games nowadays that won't bore me. What games have you guys played for a long time? Definitely the Professor Layton series imo. I love replaying the puzzles.

    Smash Bros Melee.

    Last time I checked the statistics (shortly before getting brawl) it had over 700 hours played (almost exclusively 3-4 players). And that's only counting MY savegame, not when we played somewhere else on someone elses console/savegame.


    Obvious early pokemon games also.
    My Red and Silver savegames each have 200-250 hours on them (glad I never lost those savegames).
    The ones afterwards I only played through once, though.


    There might have been a few games that also got to the three-digit hour mark (Lufia II for SNES, Secret of Mana for SNES), but I don't remember many of them.
    Also I'm not going to count any mmo's I played because I have simply no way of measuring how much time I actually spent playing them over the time that I had an active account there.

    DQ Rocket Slime (50hours+), PS0 (80 hours+) and DQ9 (150hours+).
    And Tingle, can't say how long exactly since there's no in-game timer, but definitely a loooong time (what with all the items to collect for alchemy, pretty much like Rocket Slime actually).

    I've been playing the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon games for quite some time now.
    As well I clocked in countless hours playing Shin Megami Tensei Devil Survivor.

    Pokémon Soul Silver, definitely.
    Last time I checked I had 300+ hours and I kept playing for a while after that.

    Other than that, I have no idea. I have very little notion of time when I play, and I don't check often.
    I know I played Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days for 100+ hours and Re:coded for a bit less than 100.

    I'd say the only DS game I've clocked a huge amount of time on is Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey. About 90 hours and 1.5 cycles before my DS Lite broke.

    Super Scribblenauts may also count, but I have no idea how much time I clocked on it, both because there's no in-game clock that I know of, and because I beat it on flashcart before buying the physical cartridge, and I no longer have that save file (I think)...

    As for non-DS games with DS ports, I've spent a ton of time on the PS-X Chrono Trigger and the PS2 Disgaea. Chrono Trigger I can definitely recommend, because they added a bunch of stuff to the Chronicles enhanced port, not to mention the SNES original. The only reason I haven't bought the DS version is because I've clocked so many hours on my Chronicles version, that starting over from scratch doesn't appeal to me. Disgaea is much more of a personal choice, because they had to fudge the graphics and especially the sound to fit it on the DS, but they did add a bit of new content, mostly some stages and new playable characters.
