Have you tried playing video games for almost the whole day?

I can't help it. When I started playing a very nice game like Final Fantasy, I can't just stop playing because the story is so nice and I just want to finish it. I sometimes play for like 5-7 hrs. straight. I usually wake up late, but I automatically wake up early and play. How long do you play when you love the game?

I've come close but I never did. One game I remember playing in recent memory for a good while would be Ocarina of Time with Master Quest on the Gamecube. I played I think quite a few hours. I just didn't want to stop it seemed.

When my friend and I got Halo 2 (midnight, as soon as it was released) we played for 11 hours straight, stopped for breakfast/lunch and went back to play it for another 6 or so hours. After than I had to go to work for a staff meeting. Nearly fell asleep. It was fun.

I've done this, lots of times, in fact whenever i get a new game, and I really like it I can play throughout the day, of course then the game finishes within two days or so. Some of my favorite games are played by me all day long. If something is just so interesting, it's hard to stop. Even I have woken up early or slept later than usual in the process of playing a game i really love. And sometimes even when i sleep I'm thinking of it.... Sounds crazy, but I'm sure as a fellow gamer, you'll understand.

There was this time that I was hooked with SIMS that I would sit down in front of the computer like maybe 10.30 in the morning, and then I'll be playing and playing it without even realizing that it is already dark, I play til around 6pm. This also happened when I got hooked with Pangya... and honestly.. whenever this happens I feel guilty because after that day I feel like I have wasted a perfectly good day sitting in front of the computer doing nothing productive at all. But still this goes on again and again... tsktsk... there was this time when my brother was so into Ragnarok that he would sleep at 9pm then wake up at 2am just so he can play for free, considering that he still has work at 8am... that's crazy.

Yeah I have! Especially during holidays. I know exactly what you mean as I play FF too. There was once when I played FF9 for 10 hours straight from the moment I wake up until night, stopping only to eat and go to the toilet. But of course in the end I ended up having a severe headache. lol but it was fun though. And I have that same habit of waking up early just to play too. Guess we're really addicted to games. =P
