Going off what Back-From-Purgatory said, in both real-time and game time, I think the game that took me the longest to beat was Dark Cloud 2.

I think I started playing that game in late 2003, and didn't complete it until about late '05 early '06. So it took me about 2 to 3 years.

in-game time, as it promised on the back of the game case, was well over 100 hours. I don't have the game anymore as it was lent to me by a friend, so I can't exact numbers u_u. On top of that, I completed the bonus story (Zelmite Mines) that takes place after the original story, adding even more hours to my gameplay time.

I admit I did quite a few mini-games, but I really did them to unlock special items.

Oblivion. I don't even know if that counts. I sunk 300 hours into it and still hadn't done everything that needed to be done. If that doesn't count then it would be Yoshi's Island. I played that game a minimum of three hours a day when I was soon to be five. It took me the whole summer of busting my ass but eventually I won.

The original Resident Evil took me at least a year to beat when I was about 9-10. Mostly since I didn't know what I was doing wrong for awhile since I kept being bit by the Yawn and could never seem to find a Blue Herb to save my life. After I figured that fight out I began to figure the rest of the game out.

Rock Band 2 looks like it will also take awhile with the setlists and unlockables, not to mention the Bladder of Steel achievement...

Timesplitters (original).

Played it until about 2/3 of the way through, got bored of shooting the same things over and over again, put it away, forgot completely about it, found it at the bottom of a drawer 10 goddamned years later, got curious about if there was an ending worth watching in it, and finished the other 1/3.

Turns out there wasn't.

Fuck.

Probably Oblivion. My original save file was over 100 hours and I didn't do any dungeon missions, go in a any dungeons, and only closed the Kvatch Oblivion portal. That's why I'm playing it again and doing all of those things.

probably ocarina of time, probably because I was like a 5 year old at the time which caused the puzzles to be very difficult for me to do.

Same... Skyrim here. I did beat it, but after playing for close to 700 hours I think I finally unlocked everything that was in the game. I don't think many games have sucked me in that hard, but its usually single-player games that do.

By in game hours, I have no clue. But from the time I started playing it after I bought it, it would be the following games.

Zelda 1 & 2 - 5 or 6 years. If these games weren't so cryptic and difficult, they would've been completed much sooner.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Forbidden Memories - 7 or 8 years. Only managed to beat it once, and that was with the help of my brother's Meteor Black Dragon he gave me. Without it, I wouldn't be able to beat this game. I even got back to the final boss after playing through the entire game again while keeping my old deck, I couldn't beat him (and the other bosses with no check points in between at the end of the game) again.

Pokémon Stadium - I still need to beat Round 2, and I've been playing since 2002 (or maybe 2003). If you consider completing Round 1 beating the game since Round 2 is pretty much hard mode, than it took me 3 to 5 years to beat it.

Other than that I don't think any games have taken me more than 50 hours or so.

At around 400 hours actually now, and only STILL at HR7.

Maybe because I ended up doing a dual swords only run as my FIRST run. Still a pretty great game.

Command and Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars. It took so long mainly because I'm a retard when it comes to RTS games.

Took you that long? Damn.
I finished that game in 1 night, but that's mostly because i only did story missions and the game was exactly the same as assassins creed 2. After i got the ending, i was almost going to snap the game disc in half for such a shitty ending.
Fuck assassins creed.

I remember I still have to beat Pokemon Stadium 2 as well. Last time I played it was years ago though.

I'm also stuck in round 2 and if I remember correctly I still need the last two challenge cups and the master level 50-55 cup. The comp always seems to screw you on those though, so I gave up.

Xenoblade chronicles took me over 120 hours to finish in game time, and that was far from 100% at the end. I guess I did spend a lot of time pointlessly exploring areas and trying to sneak past monsters that were way over my level.

Real time I started Donkey Kong 64 way back in the 90s and I still haven't finished it. I occassionally go back to it, but I suspect I'm destined to never reach the end.

I'm not entirely sure.

Most likely Disgaea 2. I've easily sunk hundreds of hours into that game. I think the main storyline took me 80 hours. You can probably shave off 10 or more hours if you know what you're doing. Disgaea 2 was my first Disgaea game ever and my first tactical RPG. The only other contenders that have rivaled its playtime are Dragon Age: Origins, Persona 3 and 4, the Fallout universe and Diablo II. I still have a huge back log of games that I've played for countless hours, but haven't completed. Kingdom Hearts 2 for example.

Lol! I'm about 85 hours in, level 35 Nord.

Skyrim is definitely the longest game I have ever played, and surprisingly, it has been as fun now as it was during the first few hours. So much quality content, that the 300+ hours gameplay is justified.

I believe it was Ocarina of time that took me quite a bit of time to complete and probably three different versions of it. I only remember that I was around 5 or 6 when I started with the n64 version, only to get stuck on the great deku tree because I didn't know that you could set webs on fire for about two months. I think I made it passed the last kid link dungeon before getting bored. Then I got the gamecube version some years later and went at it til the water temple then quit, then retried until I reached the water temple again, quit, retry and make it past until I was in the gerudo valley dungeon then quit. I got the master quest version of it and played the vannila OoT on that and beat that in one sitting like a few months ago.

12 years or so I believe. In game time, about six hours.

Paper mario the thousand year door took me three until I decided to cheese it and went the danger mario loadout.
In game time, shortest is 20 hours give or take. Could be shorter, but I end up keeping my system on while I do something else.

I think I didn't beat conker's bad fur day for about six years since I couldn't deal with the controls on the n64 version so I did it on the xbox version.
In game time was a standard run time I think.

I've started three new games in Skyrim since I bought it back in early September and with both Dawnguard and Hearthfire new to me, I've been playing it nearly everyday since. As a gamer who likes to max out/collect/find every last little thing in a game, I can honestly say that I have no idea how long Skyrim will take me to "finish". :P

Other than that, I always find that the Rune Factory and Harvest Moon games take me the longest to complete. I'll often spend several months playing those games, off and on. lol
