    What video game did you play for the longest amount of time straight?

    I use to play WoW almost 15 hours straight daily, it was pretty bad. I also remember when I first got super mario strikers charged I played it for 8 hours straight.

    Though I'm primarily a Kingdom Hearts fan, the game I played for the longest amount of time straight would have to be 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors.  It's not a /game/ game (it's technically a "visual novel"), but basically you solve the puzzles in each door to advance to the next level, and the story changes to what decisions you make, and there's only one combination that gets you out alive - and I couldn't get the right combination.  That was literally the last choice I did, and every time I died (in more and more horrific ways), I'd try to figure out what I did wrong.

    I have no idea how long I played it for, but the console (GameBoy DS) was in my hands literally all day for about a week.

    I agree ScarlaBlack. 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors completely took hold of me too. Very very good game that I doubt as many have played as they really should. RPG games tend to make me lose track of time the most because of how absorbing they can be. Elder Scrolls Skyrim was a time sink...but then so is Super Street Fighter 4 online.

    I played Gears of War 3 for ten hours straight the first week it came out. I beat the entire campaign with a friend and we played online until I had to go out for dinner. Then I played for another three hours when I got home.

    Back in the days before world wide web, I would log in for days playing the old  lp/os muds, such a lusty mud. Back than I would only stop if I fell asleep at the keyboard. You can still find the old style muds but the day of text based games are a thing of the past as WOW, and perfect world, dc on-line and other games like them have taken the muds place. I no longer have time to spare for a silly game but back than I use to live and breath the game.

    I used to play the Devil May Cry series for hours on end, but I remember when I purchased one of the Onimusha games I played it for so long I was halfway done before I took my first break. It was a rather short game though.

    Everyone would expect VII, but if my memory serves it was Final Fantasy IX.  I know it doesn't get the press that the previous two did, but this game came out right around the time that I was getting into RPGs.  I loved the story as it unfolded and the gameplay served as an excellent accessory.  If I recall it was the only time I almost missed all three meals for the day.

    On a few occasions I have become so caught up in a game that I play it for 17-20 hours. But while playing Persona 4 (one of the greatest games I've ever played) I made the conscious decision to aim for a full 24 hours. Something like a challenge.

    Nailed it. So there's my answer. I did a full 24-hour day with that game.
