Games I play for a long time... well, any RPG, really - most recently Neverwinter Nights - and other than those, Tyrian did, as did the SCUMM adventures of yore.

Games, however, that make me *completely* lost track of time are rarer - Deus Ex, Anachronox, and Baldur's Gate 2... and possibly Arcanum being the only ones I can think of really. All the others I know I might play for a long time - but I do at least keep track of time during doing so.

Final Fantasy VII and Alundra are my classic time killers, but I've just recently aquired House of the dead 2 and a lightgun, which has just whiled away alot of my time.

Me missus played the Sims for 12 hours one day....

Sad!
that does seem to be a game that appeals to the ladies. The most annoying part is mys sister and her little friend don't even try and challenge themselves! They just cheat and try and make a family they know irl or something. :angry:

I once cheated on the Sims and sadisticly surrounded the house with a swimming pool. Guest Sims like Pizza Delivery Guys or people who need to go to work would just swim forever until they died :p

Impossible Mission
Dungeon Master

All top games and i've lost many hours playing these ones, thanks to the GP32 can play the oldies again now without booting up my pc (I wish I could get impossible mission to work on Frodo) But I think I've lost the most time on Dungeon Master, I cant remember how many times i've replayed that.

My little bro bought this game Metal Arms: Glitch in the system, hes had for about a week and i found out he had yesterday so i started a game up on it and ive barely stopped playin since i love its amazing, the vehicles the weapons, the tether gun which allows u to control enemies (especially satisfying controlling a huge titan robot), anyway enough rambling has anyone else got or played this game i know its on xbox aswell as the cube.
But in answer to the question of this topic this game definately does make me lose track of time.

I found out that it was available for the PC, So i sold the psx and bought FF7 for the PC and started all over again. One day me PC went tits up, So i backed up all my important stuff and reformated etc. But i forgot to backup my FF7 save game files (FU*K!), Never played it since, Can`t be arsed to start all over again (too gutted).

Wacky races. OMFG me and a mate played this for 14 hrs straight...we were addicted.

Recently Shenmue has taken my soul, for some reason I've developed the patience for it.
