Videogame Longevity

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby dealing with it on Wed Jan 04, 2017 7:21 pm

What is the longest you have ever played a videogame for?

Personally, I played QuakeWorld Team Fortress for four years. It made a difference that I was in a Quake clan, and we had two practises and two matches a week.

Been awhile since I've been here! Thought I'd drop in and see how things are going.

Longest played game has been Oblivion, but I've found that any game that allows mods, has much replayability. Mods are the sole reason I've ever gone back to any game, ever, and the sole reason why they've remained relevant and still-playable.

I really don't know. I did play Legend of Mana... like, a lot.... for a long time. Still, it could have been Morrowind, modded that game like there was no tomorrow. So many mods... anime stuff, crafting, quests, npcs, vampire stuff, weapons, armors... now it even has some decent graphics with that overhaul mod thing.

I know this thread is super old, but I am heavily into video games and I firmly believe that older games will never really phase out.

I played Team Fortress 2 for a good 5 years or so, and I STILL go back to it every now and then.

I also return very frequently to my old PS1 and PS2 horror games.
When I was a child,
I caught a fleeting glimpse
Out of the corner of my eye.
I turned to look, but it was gone,
I cannot put my finger on it now,
The child is grown,
The dream is gone
I have become
comfortably numb.

I have 1200+ hours on Skyrim...lol So many replays & with mods, there's a ridiculous amount of different ways you can play.

Probably over a thousand hours on Hearts of Iron 2: Darkest Hour and its various mods. It is an old strategy game that never seems to get boring. You can play any country between 1914-1964 (including technically useless ones such as Afganistan, Luxemburg, Albania and the Free City of Danzig). It's mostly a world war 2 game because the Great War aspect is a bit of a mixed bag. Mods have created many more scenarios, time periods and alternate histories. My games tend to take longer to finish because I generally play at a slow speed so I can micromanage as much as I can. I also like taking control of the losing enemy country to try and salvage their situation against my former country. I have ended up changing seats to the losing side up to four times in one game (A Socialist France - Imperial Germany minus the Rhineland - Socialist France minus North France - Anti-socialist German rebels in East Prussia and Brandenburg).

6 years on League of legends. Thousands of games and still play it. But tbh I don't play it as often as I played 2,3 years ago.
