What's the longest session you've spent playing a single game?

Mine's probably from the time I used to play Frontier : Elite II, 'cos I spent AGES playing that one!

I once literally spent an entire Sunday playing World Of Warcraft, with only a few minutes break here and there to go to the bathroom and eat.

16 hours straight playing Rogue Trader with my brother, although yesterday i did spend around 7 hours playing fallout 3 without stopping... Oh the feeling of prying yourself away. The real world feels so... different.

Oh god, my days of playing Tremulous... The only multilayer FPS I've ever enjoyed.

It's probably a good thing that not many people play it these days, otherwise I'd never get anything done.

I think I played the expansion to Diablo II (Lord of Destruction), for like 12 hours straight one day, right after I first got it. At the time I had a non-expansion character halfway through the second difficulty level, and went back to normal mode with that one to play through the whole new act. It was rather fun, though I didn't have to spend any time leveling up my character.

I've sometimes found myself during holidays playing games like TF2 for most of the day...

Serious sam I finished in 1hr 45min. The zork series sucked me in, but also the Undying.
The Undying I never finished.

That last game I played that I really got into and lost track of time playing was Fallout 3.

Have had an 8 hour multiplayer game of anno 1503 before, the game itself started warning us to get some fresh air and such every 2 hours noting for how long we were playing. And well, some World of Warcraft, Starcraft and Diablo 2 sessions probably have been way higher than that.

Anno 1503 eats time, as does Civilization.

Forgot about Civilization, I couldn't even guess at how many hours I spent playing all four versions of that game.

26 hours playing Guild Wars because I wanted to get the festival hats for each of my characters, which had to be done during the festival period by cashing in quest rewards once every three hours.
A couple weeks after that they put in the ability to copy festival hats to other characters on your account. Wish I'd known beforehand!

Definately playing Civilization. I've spent long hours playing that. Although, LAN parties cause me to play UT2k4 or StarCraft a lot.

Speaking of games that eat time;

The number of hours I've spent playing Sim City 2000, 3000 and even 4 are too numerous to count.

I feel stupid saying this, but the longest gaming session I've had was playing RuneScape for 8 hrs straight from 10pm to 6am one time in the summer last year.

Ah Yes.

Halo was another that I played for about 7 hours.

I got half way but then a month later, I played it with someone else and we went through the whole game in 7 hours.
