    Being a new member here, I thought this would be a great way to get to know people. Don't ask why, because I don't know either.

    But my worst gaming binge was with Diablo II, I played it for like 50-60 hours straight. On a diet consisting of turkey sandwiches (fast to make and eat) and red Mountain Dew. When you can feel your organs, and, feel like you are hovering to an electric buzz; its time to stop. And I did. ROFL. That game since has become sooo boring and repeative I can't understand how I did that.

    I once played A-Train on the Amiga for 4 days straight (with breaks for food and bathroom essentials of course). I think I slept for a couple of hours somewhere along the way, but pretty much non stop for 4 days.

    Beating Half-Life single-player in the space of 24 hours. I would've done it faster, but Xen was really starting to piss me off (if I wanted a platformer, I'd play Mario), and I needed to sleep.

    Proberbly the longest I've spent playing a game was when I first bought my Playstation. I didn't have a memory Card and had to play through Discworld in a single sitting in order to complete it. took me from around 10 in the morning 'til about 11 in the night.

    Back about the time when MechWarrior 3 came out I would play that non stop. bad part was I was still in school and would be up till 4am on school nights playing online.

    Also, Morrowind. After I graduated from ITT and couldn't find a job( :grr: )I played that game for about a month straight with maybe a couple hours of sleep/night. I'm still playing it(been out around 2 years)and the expansions and still haven't done everything possible. Amazing game.
