    Elite Beat Agent. I couldn't sleep last night and played "one" game on it. Ended up playing until 3am. Advance Wars DS is also permanently stuck on my flashcart as well.

    Advance wars. First on the GBA (I played 11 hours straight... [​IMG] ), then the DS version, but nowadays I don't have time to play through the entire battery [​IMG]

    It has been well over a decade since I started playing tetris2. Elite was another one and althougth the systems have changed (I use my ds/gba now) they can still distract for a spell.

    Phoenix wright was another one, had some exams for which an all nighter was pulled, slept the next day and then spent the next night playing that.

    I only just picked up FF12 (first new main series final fantasy since FF9 years ago) and it looks like it will make the list (much like the other final fantasy titles).

    Although it could not really happen now perfect dark on the 64 was the victim of marathon sessions (and dangerous cooling methods for the useless third party expansion pack).

    The recent localisations of the GBA summon night games proved an effective distraction too.

    Need I say advance wars as well?

    This list could go on for a long time so I will stop before I start properly.

    On most games (good/very good ones). I tend to play like 1-2 hour then take a break. But there are a few that has kept me hooked for ridiculous amount of time before taking a break

    Castlevania Dawn of Sorrow
    Castlevania Portrait of Ruin
    Digimon World
    Final Fantasy III
    Final Fantasy Chocobo Tales
    Lost Magic
    Lunar Knights
    Mario Kart DS
    Megaman ZX
    Nintendo DS Browser ( [​IMG] )
    Star Fox Command
    Tetris DS
    Trauma Center
    Trioncube (Played the crap out of it then put it aside)
    Puzzle Quest
    Yu-Gi-Oh World Championship 2007

    Those are the ones I can think of right now. Im sure i've forgotten a title or two.

    All the Castlevanias of course. Tetris has it's fare share too. And uhm... probably Phoenix Wright. The rest didn't really get to the point where I had to charge but still play.

    Only DS game I played none stop from start to finish in one play was New Super Mario Brothers. Quite an easy game really which was disapointing.

    Puzzle Quest is a game I still play a lot, I've caught about 50 monsters and creatures and gone through nearly all of the missions and my level is 67. What I love about this game is being able to change difficulty when I want to but I've not had a problem since I reached level 45, I also like how the random monsters just about match your level, even when you go back to the earlier castles.

    I usually will either beat a game completely or give up on it immideately. The games that I never let down until I beat them were;

    Mario and Luigi Partners and time(Last boss is much too hard)

    New super Mario bros (too short)

    Digimon World DS(lacks a good battle sequence, and uses 2d gifs as opponents)

    Metroid prime hunters (Great game overall, but wifi has too many hackers)

    Mario kart racing (Not many downsides, and is godly compared to Diddy kong racing which is boringgg)

    Yoshis Island DS (Like the original but with new babies to carry which will change the game is played)

    New Super Mario Bros.

    Completed it 4 times. 1 of those was a 100% completion = EVERY single thing unlocked.

    I love the game. And me and Costello spend countless hours playing multiplayer. It's probably the best or one of the best multiplayer games I've played... on any system. Though it's hard to beat Worms World party.

    One I did not see mentioned: Lost in Blue

    I was almost about to give up after being frustrated with it in the first hour or so, but gave it a bit longer, and got hooked.

    I realized there is not a single game, in any console that really won't let me go, I get bored from it, literally... wonder if it is normal.

    I really play in bursts, and when I lose my interest on a game, that is a bad thing, I play it every month or even further.

    Games I played 100% (took me months to finish them):
    Castlevanias: Aria and Dawn of Sorrow
    The Simpsons: Hit and Run
    The Simpsons: Road Rage

    mmm... I'm sure there is more than 10 others, but I can't really remember.
