The other day ex-Kotaku editor David Wildgoose tweeted that he had spent almost 500 hours with Civilization V. It got me wondering — what games have burned up the most time in my life? I thought I'd ask you all the same question.
In terms of raw hours, I think I spent the most time with Halo 2. I think I probably pushed that close to the 500 hour mark. I was never really sucked into any MMOs, so I've never had that true time sink game. Halo 2 came closest I think.
Outside of multiplayer games, I'd say possible Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge? I've played through that game a terrifying number of times. Maybe over 15 times from start to finish. Same with Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. Super Mario World as well. I think all those games hit at a time when I literally spent all my spare time playing video games!
Anyway — what about you guys and girls? Let us know in the comments below.
