    You know, downloaded lots of ROMs in a small amount of time. You're counting individual sessions of binge-downloading, so if you spent a week binge-downloading, that's 7 sessions (unless you had more than one session in a day). ISOs count. Any system counts. ROM-packs don't count. You're only counting the times you download a large amount of individual ROMs.

    For me, it's once for NES, twice for GBA, and about 4 times for DS (my memory card formatted itself twice). That totals about 7 times.

    How about you guys?

    I use to do it with my DS a lot. I would just search for good games and if one looked interesting I would try it. I usually ended up downloading a lot of games. I don't so much anymore, although I will still do it for smaller PC games and any Wii games

    too many to count i've downloaded a ton of PS1/Wii/DS games in a single day...i dont keep them saved on my computer or an external hard drive so i've downloaded a lot of games over and over multiple times.For instance i downloaded just over 100 Wii games in 4 days about 2 months ago =P

    Hmmmm. The only time I've binge downladed when I had a new way of running them. For instance the first time I got my R4, the first time I found VGBA, when wiisx beta released. Times like those.

    Replace ROMS with hardcore pornography and the answer is a astounding yes.

    Lots of times with ds games. I see a game I like and download it, then another one pops up and so on and so on.

    Twice. Once when I got my 8GB card, and again when it fucked up and I had to replace every file. Normally I pick up games one or two at a time as and when they become available and swap files around on my card. For example, at present my Cyclo can't play Jam With The Band. So I deleted it and since there's no game to take its place, I have some new music and movies filling the space for now until Megaman Zero Collection reveals itself and is confirmed playable on Cyclo.

    Which given that the Cyclo boys seem to be on vacation given the distinct lack of JWTB fix, it may be some time...

    About 5 times, each time when something went wrong with my card and I didn't back it up before hand

    There were a few times when I found that I backed up some saves but didn't back up the games themselves.... And then there was the five times my Micro SD needed formatting...

    I downloaded every NES, SNES and N64 roms. Only because all 3 consoles have a ton of good games I didn't want to download separately. (plus the games are tiny, so all 3 downloaded fast)

    No point Binge downloading anything past N64. PS1, DS and all that don't have enough good games to ever need to binge download. You'd only be wasting your time. Especially for DS and Wii, unless downloading a huge list of files that is 95% crap is enjoyable for you.
    EDIT: Also, I don't count downloading a bunch of separate games at the same time to be truly "binge downloading". IMO.

    None. I download my games at random intervals, never a large number at once.
