Old Aug 17th, 2004, 09:28 PM        Best Game You've Wasted Your Life On?
Some of us have the RPGs we anxiously await only to spend days at a time awake and playing, while others have their fun in multiplayer first-person shoot-em-ups and battle-royale type games.

The real question here is, what is the first game that ever made you lose a lot of sleep? And what games since then have either had you so strangled in anticipation as to keep you awake many nights in a row or made you sit in your high school class doodling the characters all over your Biology books or whatever?

The first game I ever stayed up and played for a protracted period of time was Final Fantasy 3. I distinctly remember having my mom call me in sick for school so I could get through the Floating Continent, heh.

Others... more annoyingly so, was Tetris Attack for SNES. Those stupid Yoshi characters and the blocks haunted my dreams, man..

Final Fantasy VII or Graal. I stayed up almost a week vowing to kick the living shit out of Sephiroth when he killed Aeris
Then I stayed up annother week seeing all the crazy shit I could do on Graal. Man that game is fun!

Tetris Attack took my life, and the life of all my friends. It still takes the lives of my friends, but I'm so sick of it that I hide it when friend's come around looking for their fix.

Best game to get hooked on was either Super Metroid or Symphony of the Night. I'll never be able to relive the first times through.

To elaborate on something Hickman said:

Has anyone lost a relationship of some sort because of this?

Haha.. my first girlfriend was a victim of Chrono Trigger.

Super Mario RPG and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time manage to make my life miserable.

Right now I'm happy because even when I've more than 20 games, I only play almost 3 hour at week!!!!!

Even hardcore geeks would take girls over games in most cases, who are you people?

when i originaly got ocarina of time (rental) overnight, i played for hours and got to the forest temple, then i rented it out for a weekend and completed it. bear in mind this ment very little sleep, and when i had finished, i couldnt sleep for images of ingame antics burned into my eyeballs

Oh yeah, and annother game I've wasted my life on is Everquest, Hero's Call for the cell phone. Ugh. My neck and wallet still ache from the weeks I spent playing that game... Now I know why Cellphones are evil

Morrowind GOTY for Xbox, and about 2 years before that a game called Aidyn Chronicles: The Last Mage.

I cried myself to sleep one night when I couldn't get the ingame battle engine scenarios out of my head.

Front Mission 3, the game wasn't even that great but i ended up spending around 150 hours on it

and Fallout 2, i am still trying to go through the game with all the possible "classes", don't forget your speech points

I would have to say EverQuest was the worst one for me. I never spent like 28 hours straight on one game before....sad thing was like 14 when I was playing it so I was so fickle on what class I wanted to play so I only ended up getting to level 36 . Other than that game I would have to say that Ultima 7:The Black Gate took a great deal of my life away at a very young age.
