I've put quite a lot of game time in since playing my grandfather's Atari 2600 back in the early 80s, but these top 3 really consumed my free time like nothing else.

1. World of Warcraft - I quit over a year ago, but have a few hundred days played and 7 toons above level 80

2. Mass Effect series - I'm lumping these three together. I beat the first one 4 times, the second one 5 or 6, and the third twice so far. That adds up.

3. Dark Souls - I played this game like 8 hours a day for the first month it was out, and I've been thinking about running through it again.

Honorable mentions:

1. Descent - The first truly 3D game I ever played. They had so many user created levels out there, and I've probably put a few hundred hours into the first two games.

2. Street Fighter 2 - Between Turbo, Hyper Fighting, Special Champion Edition, Super Street Fighter 2, and any other incarnation I've played over the years... I've thrown a lot of fireballs.

3. Minecraft. I've played a ton of Minecraft, but the game didn't really CONSUME me like the ones up at the top of my list. It was more a bit here and there whenever new content came along (I got it in late alpha or early beta stages).

1) Pokemon (doesn't matter which one, still feels like a gelatinous mass of wasted time).

2) Final Fantasy X-2 (Got to 100% completion, only took 12 play troughs and 350 hours).

3) Skyrim or some other random RPG (Kingdom Hearts, FF12, etc).

RPG's really are big massive pools where I look back and think 'what was I doing? I could have been doing something productive instead of grinding my knuckles off'

1. Oblivion
2. Fallout 3
3. System Shock 2

I know I've got at least 1200+ hours in all those games combined.

hmmmmm picking three is hard but I'd have to say:

Persona 3 (with persona 4 being a close runner up)

FFXI (the evil time sink online game)

Kingdom hearts two (still go back and replay it heck just started a new replay about a week ago)

1) Counter-Strike: Source
2) Morrowind
3) SMT: Devil Survivor

Considering the first two games, Devil survivor seems like a strange third.

Fallout 3
GTA San Andreas
Unreal Tournament
It's hard to remember back that far but the original Phantasy star games (1, 2, & 4 at least) may top them.

1) WoW
2) Star Wars Galaxies
3) Diablo 2

I'm not sure about number 3, though. There are several MMOs that might take that spot as well, mainly Ultima Online, but I remember playing D2 soooo much. Pretty much everyday from the time it came out until Warcraft 3 released.

Dragon Age: Origins
Crash Team Racing
Timesplitters: Future Perfect

I no-life'd the first one and grew up on local multiplayer with the second two.

Fallout: New Vegas, Borderlands and the original Deus Ex should get honourable mentions though. And the Dynasty Warriors series, and Final Fantasy 7, 8 and 9. And Elder Scrolls: Oblivion......And the Smackdown, Worms and GTA series.

And I'm wasting my life.

1. Gran Turismo 5
2. Counter Strike: Condition Zero
3. Crash Bandicoot 2

And yes, those all beat Skyrim, which I played for ~40 hours (give or take 2).

Crash Bandicoot I know I played a lot, but the hours would probably be about 60-70 (and achieved 100% mind you, and was 10 or something)

Condition Zero is up to 98ish, according to Steam anyway, I played it heaps before then.

Gran Turismo 5 measures itself as 'in game days' and I've never bothered to look at it, suffice to say, I've driven it 9/10 days for about a year and have travelled 30,000kms going at about 2-3 hours a session 2.5*(.9*365)= 821.25 hours sounds a bit off, probably only 350-400 hours.

I don't have any hours to supply, but I reckon my top 3 would be the following:

- World of Warcraft
- Neverwinter Nights
- Baldur's Gate series

WoW probably wins in terms of raw hours, but NWN is a strong contender. It's one of the few games I've systematically installed on every computer I've owned since 2002. Baldur's Gate is one of the oldest games I still play once in a while, along with Warcraft II. If you factor in the fact that I didn't have my own computer back when Warcraft II came out (and thus wasn't able to play as much as I would have liked), it would probably make the list as well.
