What is the longest single setting (which can include small bathroom and food breaks but doesn't include sleep breaks) that you spent playing a game in your life? For me it is around 78 hours and I did it twice no less, but that was when I was a young adult too. The first time was Final Fantasy II/Final Fantasy IV (SNES) and the other time was Lunar II: Eternal Blue (Sega CD version).

What is the fastest you've ever beaten a game on the very first playthough (this isn't to completion or your fastest time on said game, I want very first play from start to beating the final boss if you remember.) For me that would be Actraiser. I beat it in under 3 1/2 hours without cheats. I know the time well as I had 4 hours when I started the game to have the game back to the rental place which was about 12 miles away from me and I had it back with about 10 minutes to spare and had beaten it.

Finally, is there anything you do while playing a game that freaks someone else out? Haha, this is a fun question and I can ask it because yes there is something I can do while playing a game that freaks others out. I can sleep while playing a game. This is no lie, and we're not talking doze. I have been known to full on sleep while continuing to play a game (including move the characters and fight battles and such.) Not so much anymore as I don't play to exhaustion anymore but I could sure trip people out :) Been asked a number of times how the heck I do that.

I guess that is it for now, just about all I can think of to ask. Anything else you can think of, feel free to ask it.

Wow, 78 hours... I never went beyond 10, and only a couple of times, one was playing Ragnarok Online; the other one Monster Hunter Tri playing online (And a bit of offline to get honey), both because I was playing with friends and man, time really flies with them. I really miss those times, although I would never waste my time on a MMO just to lose everything for whatever reason (At least with Tri your savefile is in your console)...

Besides that, I usually don't spend more than maybe 3/4 hours on a single sitting tops, and that's when I CAN, not very often now. Even less with my curse to been interrupted often...

The game i have beaten the fastest in my first playthrough is by far Dementium 2. Around 2 hours. I felt ripped off. And anger. To the point I went to the store and changed the game in the same fucking day. What the hell.

The worst part: I like to play my games slowly. I was'nt hurrying. Or at least that's what I think...


I can't do it anymore, but as a kid/teen I could play the NES with my feet and used my hands to hold guides so I could read them (Screw that table nosense). Most of the games I played where slow paced or RPGs, or adventure games, nothing special, but whenever a friend was in my house they looked at me like I was some kind of mutant experiment or something, even my family would ask "Why not just pause the game?". Maybe they were onto something...

I also managed to beat Zelda 1 entirely using my feet with enought patience.
That said, @#$% YOU DARKNUTS, most of the deaths were because of them. Peahats helped too.

In fact, because of this now I have the ability to grab things with my toes whenever something falls to the ground. I guess i'm more close to an ape than I thought.
