    Hmm it's probably a toss up between Heroes of Might and Magic 3, Diablo II, and the first Starcraft. I played each of those games on and off for the better part of ten years, while still being able to play other games too.

    (Ah, how I miss not being an adult, at times.)

    I'm ashamed to say it, but the answer for me would be World of Warcraft. :x

    I think this would be a tie between Baldur's Gate 2, Neverwinter Nights (+ expansions Shadows of Underntide and Hordes of Underdark), Dragon Age and Diablo.

    Well, what can I say, I like to save the world, if not realistically, then at least virtually. smile

    World of Warcraft has broken all kinds of time consuming records. I don't know my exact total, but if I added the play time up for each character, I suspect it would make me sad. For offline games, I think I spent the most time with Knights of the Old Republic. It was roughly a 40 hour game and I played it through at least three times.

    Oh this one is easy!! As a whole it has to be the Pokemon series!! I put in over a hundred hours in multiple of them and I played hours upon hours of each of Blue, Red, Yellow, Gold, Silver, Crystal, Sapphire and am now getting into Soul Silver.  These games capture you and provide a great number of ways to get to the outcome of beating the Elite Four and trying to catch them all while the "all" seems to reach higher and higher numbers in each newer game.

    Metroid Prime Hunters. I swear, I think I played online every single day for an entire year. Coming at second place would be Super Smash Bros. Melee.

    Battlefield 1942. For some reason, being able to run, fly, drive vehicles and boats, just makes for new gameplay everyday online. Too. much. time....

    One of the Halo games most likely. I play lots of online games but my favorites are on the consoles. I have sunk endless hours into this series since it came out over 10 years ago.

    Final Fantasy IX on PSone took me just over 100 hours to beat.  That's the most time I've spent on a single game that actually recorded my hours.  Grand Theft Auto 4 I got up to 60+ hours once I had gotten 100% completion.

    The old Warcraft games (1-3) and the original Starcraft were big time-sucks for me.  Those were the first games I would start playing at 9pm and keep saying, "I'll just finish building this base" and then "I got a attacked, I'll rebuild my infantry and build some static defenses, then stop and save" and then next thing I know, I see the sun starting to rise.  But that was many years ago....

    I would say its a tie between Halo 2 for Xbox and Call of Duty Black Ops for the Xobx 360. For a while there i just couldn't put the controller down.

    I am addicted to the Oregon Trail: American Settler App for my Kindle Fire.

    Presently? Dark Souls. I fupping hate that game, but good GODS it's addicting. I've raged at that game far more than any other that I've ever played, even rage-uninstalled it something like 20 times, but something keeps calling me back to the rage-fest that is Lordran. I recently started playing it again, starting a new character, and focused on playing solely online. (I was afraid of invasions and the like before because I knew nearly nothing about the game. Now that I know a whole heap more about how humanity and being Hollowed works, I spend most of my time human with 20k+ souls on me, almost at all times. Also, lag-stabbing like a boss.) I went from around 30 hours on my "main" file, (I used a trainer and played offline with that one), to almost 70 on my new one, all in less than a month. Whoof. Quite a time sink, this game.

    Before that, though, I was trying to earn my real-life fortune in Entropia Universe. I spent something around 50 hours farming vibrant sweat from these nasty buggers near the starting area on Calypso, just to make the equivalent of $10. And then I spent all that on a spaceship that almost instantly ran out of fuel upon leaving orbit, and then got shot out of the sky by pirates. 50 hours of work, gone in less than 10 seconds. Rage-uninstalled that shit, post-haste.

    But the main game that ate up a ton of my time is Kingdom Hearts II: Final Mix+. I spent over 100 hours farming for the Ultima Weapon, perfecting my fight against Sephiroth, filling up my Journal, and then getting my ass kicked to next Friday by the Lingering Will. Still haven't gotten 100% on the Journal, and I've resigned myself to the fact that I never will. I've instead decided to get 100% on my Trinity Archives in Birth by Sleep while I take a break from Dark Souls. I recently just lost over 50 humanity and 100k souls in Anor Londo due to my own stupidity. I think I need a break from that game for a while, else my computer might take a break from me, if you catch my drift... >_> lmao

      Wow, It sounds like a lot of dedication you have to put into these games, I commend you sir!!

      Not dedication, actually. More like perfectionism and a poor sense of time. xD lmao
