... took to complete a game.

Finally got my last achievement for TDU:Unlimited. It was one of the first games I bought. Only took me 2 years 9 months to complete. So what's the longest it took you to complete a game?

Halo 3 probably, but because of the wait for DLC.

I got my first achievement in CoD2 on 12/21/2005. I wasn't really into achievements at the time so I wasn't interested in finishing it. I finally finished the game on 9/10/2009. Without being bothered to check my entire gamercard I think this is my longest. Just under 4 years, not too bad eh?

Well considering I've just started this gamerscore thing and I'm just about to complete Mirror's Edge. About 18 hours for 1000G.

TES III: Morrowind

I've got literally hundreds of hours, (probably over a thousand tbh over all the platforms, [PC, 360, Xbox], and over all the games), and I've only completed the actual main game 3 or 4 times.
There's just so much to do in it that you never need to do the main story and it's so easy to just start new characters and make entire new scenarios in your head for them.

TES IV: Oblivion is the same story except with a little less hours played.

Morrowind > Oblivion :p

Of course if you're not talking achievements, Morrowind, actually.

I'm usually pretty consistent with my achievements. Though I found out for Hitman: Blood Money. I got my first achievement on there 8/7/2007 and got the last and final one 8/27/2009. 2 years and 20 days.

I know my longest game to complete was Morrowind. I remembered being 120+ hours on my first save file before I completed the main story. Then the expansion packs and making my own stuff in the construction set for the pc, I am sure that I have played it for more than 500 hours.

Fallout 3 or Elder Scrolls Oblivion. Most likely to be the latter of the two seeing as I ended up going on the ESOWiki and set out to complete every quest, find every unique item and fill my house with everything I'd found.

I really liked Oblivion. :rolleyes:

Oblivion was pretty long, but a great game none the less.

Just this week I finally completed Pro Evolution Soccer 6. I started it at the end of 2006, so it took about 3 years 3 months to complete.

In terms of longest game time completion...probably Dragon Quest 8 on PS2. That game is so massive with so many things to see & do, not to mention brutally hard at some times. It took me over 170 hours just to complete the story. And even THEN, there's still loads more to do. Anyone who still owns a PS2 and is an RPG fan would be daft to have never tried this game. Easily one of the top three RPG's on the system.

That's really good for your first 1000. Please tell me you didn't bitch out and you got 3* on all the time trials :p

The longest time it took me to complete a game was six years. The game was LoZ: WW. I played the game through right until I was at the barrier at the underwater castle that you have to slice open with the Master Sword then just stopped. My save eventually got deleted and I only replayed the game last year.

very true, loved that game, only got 40 hours in though (i had illegal copy, liked it, bought it, copy wasn't from same region as me, FAIL!)

so i'm still on the 3 year rage break that was required from losing 40+ hours of gaming. i could always order a us copy, but i'm broke now :( mushi and my 30 other 360 games saw to that

I'm the worst person to start games and not finish them for ages because I start different ones! Unless the game can keep me gripped/easy gamerscore.
