Geez, I miss when I used to be able to just zone out and do this for hours and hours. One night in college a year or so ago, I spent probably 5 or 6 hours on Dragon Warrior VII...I think when I was younger, I played Skies of Arcadia for a bit longer than that one day

I remember when Metal Gear Solid 4 came out and I just picked it up. It was my only day off from work that week and I played it for 14 hrs straight. Best day off ever!!!

Creepy how similar this is to mine.

FF7 was released and I brought it over to a friends, we took turns playing for roughly 3 days without turning off the system, until his PS1 literally burned up...like smoke and all.

Poor PlayStation.
LOL yeah, I pretty much had a similar situation with the game myself... During summer break, I would play the game 5-8 hours at a time, trying to reveal and unlock everything in the game.. I distinctly remember trying to grind and gear up for the Ruby and Emerald weapons >.<..

I played and beat Desert Strike in about 3 hours when I was a kid. Felt like forever. My Genesis arcade stick with turbo buttons really helped conserve hellfires and rockets, by using the gun a bunch.

It's not an answer to the question, but when I got my game room one of the biggest goals I had in mind was to eliminate the passage of time as much as possible. Obviously, no clocks are allowed in there. I also try to make a point of taking my watch off whenever I go in there, possibly setting an alarm and hiding it so I can't look but can leave when I need to. But I also made sure to put up dark curtains to elimate outside light. I love the feeling you get when you're playing a game when it's light/dark then coming out and having it be different.

sounds like my gameroom in a nutshell (I'm using the kitchen these days)

except that I never carry a watch... I don't like time.
