    Just a gaming question [​IMG]

    Which game have played the longest? Not al games count the hours but take a guess.

    I think the game I played the most and longest will be Super mario world for the gameboy phatzo [​IMG] I played that game for years when we went on vacation, mostly in the car [​IMG] I played it for over 5 years, I don't know how many hours I have spend on it but it is a lot!

    I think the fallow up on that one will be supermario land 2 : the 6 golden coins, That game also took a hell lot of my free time! 100 hours plus i'm sure of

    Sow what game drained all your free time? [​IMG]

    I foresee Pokemon d/p as my top one in a couple of months. But then, school is interfering with my gaming and I've barely gotten 2 hours in the game [​IMG]

    Pokemon Red FTW.... I racked up well over 300 hours on that game on one save (I have played though it several times though so I'd say more like 400+ in total). I also did over 100 hours on Pokemon Yellow and probably likewise on Pokemon Stadium on the N64, and over 80 on Silver.

    Longest non-Pokemon game would probably go to Super Mario Bros 3, at one point every night after school I used to come home and play it for a few of hours without warps seeing how many lives/items I could have remaining by the time I completed it. So I imagined I've racked up a good couple of hundred hours on there.

    Tetris on the GB is probably quite high up there n all, that wasted a lot of my life too. >_>

    Many games have occupied me for many hours throughout many years. But Tetris rules them all. Every few months I come across some instance of Tetris or the other, and I get hooked all over again. For weeks.

    Of course, I'll have lost my m4d skillz in the meantime, so I have to build up my l33t all over again. That adds to the time wasted on it.

    Pokemon Red with 150 hours on it. Battery is probably dead since I haven't played it for ages. Elite Beat Agents/Ouendan is the one that eats into my spare time but Advance Wars DS is like crack in gaming form.

    I remember one game which was Ace ventura: pet detective, point and click [​IMG] but the problem was not very far in the game i was stuck spent hours and hours of finding out why, after a few months it came clear to me that I was playing a demo...... and that you couldn't go further because then you needed to buy the game [​IMG] I felt sooo stupid then [​IMG]

    Yesterday I played a multiplayer game of advance wars against a mate [​IMG] indeed.. that game is very very addictive.. i lost by the way [​IMG]

    Probably World of Warcraft.

    Runner ups: FFVII & Zelda OoT (replaying over and over trying to get everything possible), Goldeneye 007 & Counter-Strike (hours and hours of headshots and calling each other homos).

    Oblivion, until I started the main quest, then I kind of got bored with it.

    Felt like I played puzzle quest for ages too. Also a game called Prisoner for the Apple II, but I felt that game cheated so much I had to beat it one day. Still play it today sometimes!

    Hmmm... sorry can't limit myself to one game.. so:

    Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy on C-64 (damn intelligence screening door!)
    Mindwalker on Amiga 1000 (I feel much better now!)
    Immercenary on 3DO (it would always crash about 3/4 way through and I'd have to start over.)
    Super Mario 3 on NES (I beat it! YAYAYAYYYY!)
    Pilot Wings on SNES (I actually made up lyrics for the rocketpack theme song.)
    Super Mario Land on the Gameboy (What a perfect game!)
    Timesplitters on the PS2 (Still haven't completed all the challenges.)
    Giants on the Mac (Still one of my favorite games.)

    Oh, yes, and Photoshop... that's a game, right?
