I've started posting a question of the day (or thereabouts) over in the OUYAForum chatbox, and figured it might be nice to bring them back here.
So, um, \o/yeay\o/

What games have you sunk the most time into?

Currently Zelda:BOTW is eating away at all of my dev time, but in the Amiga days, Frontier:Elite II destroyed my productivity like nothing else!!

I also used to play Unreal Tournament (classic) an insane amount, and I'd still count that as my favourite FPS. Although TimeSplitters is a close second.

Zelda for me too. And Plants Vs Zombies 2 (I'm still playing it since it first released, as they constantly update and add to it). With those two games, I'm completely stuffed for any free time.

Ikaruga on the Dreamcast ate up a lot of time from 2001 to 2006. As did Mario Kart Double Dash when that was released half-way through. Unreal Tournament, Red Alert 2 and lots more that would take forever to list from before then. and after then to be honest!

Currently I'm loving playing through Sanctum and UT again but have been sucked into mobile games, Pokemon Go and Valkyrie Crusade mainly.

FPS - Quake got played a lot by me when I just had the internet. Was expensive with dialup then. Then after that it was Half-life Team fortress.

Strategy - Civilization 1 and 2 got a lot of hours.

RPG - Morrowind I think I must have played hundreds of hours over the years.

A while ago I discovered Left 4 dead. Very nice. I have not put many hours into it but keep coming back. Also last few weeks I keep opening up Titan Quest.

Also a few years ago I think I developed RSI. I need to give my mouse hand a rest every now and then.

On the Amstrad I cant remember any games which I spent a long time playing, maybe Frank Bruno's Boxing!

For the Amiga, Frontier:Elite II, Sensible World of Soccer and Champion Manager 2! And Civ 2 and The Settlers.

On the PC, Elder Scrolls Oblivion and Skyrim are massive time sinks, along with Fall Out 3 and Team Fortress 2. More recently Elite Dangerous, but I've stopped for awhile as I want to land on planets!
