Holy crap! I mean, what could he have been playing? The longest I've lasted is about five hours nonstop but I quit because I was too tired to hold my controller. Anyone know what he could have been playing? Methinks it was the Hugh Hefner Playboy Mansion game! Or maybe the girls on the strip poker cards were really that good looking!

Oh, one more thing: I do NOT know any battle games that would keep me occupied for 50 hours!  wideeyed  wideeyed  wideeyed  wideeyed

I could hear some on here having this happen from playing MS flight sim.

Must be one hell of a game to keep you involved for that long.

He was playing "Starcraft." Poor dude needs a life. He was recently fired from work for missing work for playing the game.

Once we had a 3-day-CS-only-LAN and we played Nonstop from friday morning till sunday evening.

So, if you're searching for a game that can occupie you for 50+ hours the good old Counter Strike (1.6 for sure) and a few friends will do it.

Anyway, that's something you can do maybe three or four times a year, but anything more frequent would be simply crazy...

This should be posted in Aviation Hobby. Some of those guys fly 16-18 hr flights straight.
