    worst ive done is 4 days on diablo 2, frustrating as the game is.

    did 2 days of lineage a few weeks back.

    also had a network game of red alert 2 that lasted 17 hours once!

    Whoa! 17 Hours in RA? That game was badass, another epic relic of time. Too bad EA raped westwood. That used to be a real creative original company. I even dreamt of working there when I was younger. Not now. Oh well.

    phantasy star online on the dreamcast :

    started friday after school about 4 pm stopped at about 2 am and had +-30 min break for diner and drinking and stuff Total= 9 1/2 hours

    next day: saturday started about 9 am after breakfast (really fast) and stopped about 1 am had a break of about 1 1/2 hour for diner and lunch and drinking total= 14 1/2 hours

    sunday: slept to long started at 11 am after breakfast stopped at 11 pm because i had to go to school on monday and doing some homework can come in handy if you have a test on monday (smaal test) break was about 1 hour long total 11 hours

    overall 9.5 + 14.5 + 11 = 24.5 hours of gaming in one weekend

    i did get pretty far in phantasy star
    i finished sonic adventures the weekend after that

    never played more than that weekend

    www.play.net/gs4 ... Not very uncommon for me to spend at least 72 hours a weekend with scehdualed 2 hour naps once a day when Im playing the game full time, then during the week I just swap from home and work playing since its text based :)

    hrmmm.... well, I never sleep at two-day LANs, but I'm hardly gaming the whole time so I suppose that doesn't really count. So my biggest gaming binge would have been beating half-life in one night.... on a pentium-mmx with 32MB RAM running software becuase my video card was a 1MB PCI jobbie with no acceleration at all.

    Those were the days!

    Took the words out of my mouth! *sigh* I miss those days. Everything back then was quality. It was about the game, not the graphics. As I see with alot of stuff now.
