And I love how they make you addicted..
Because you wanna get on the next level!
And if you don't, you're like

I kinda found that happened more in the earlier games
I love AOD and legend and anniversary
But I think I knew what was coming to much.

Only 2 hours. I'm not crazy in games actually.:p

27 hours? Wow.
What about sleep?
And what tomb raider was it?

well about 7/8 hours I can't remember TR 2 :D

Ladyknowles

Bartolli's hideout :D

And the deck :)

It is, but it is DEADLY.

On topic: Well, 8 hours, but with pauses of about 10 minutes every 2 hours. Without a pause: 4 hours.

Mad Tony

Nah, you'd most likely pass out unless you had someone putting food into your mouth and pouring water down your throat.

Sometimes I play nonstop in the school holidays. And weekends when I'm not doing homework. But I have to go back to school tomoz... :( so I won't be playing it very often. But once I think I played it from like ten in the morning till twelve at night, but with little breaks to eat and drink and rest breaks. I don't want to end up having a seizure! :jmp:

Betal
04-09-07, 19:27

Ofcourse not. Once I didn't eat or drink in 2 days. I was tired and felt bad but I didn't pass out.:p

Ladyknowles
04-09-07, 19:27
haha well people, this thread shows how addicted people are to tomb raider!

And yeah, I'm back tommorow aswell
Come on..GCSE's...tomb raider.

Maybe if their was a GCSE in tomb raiding i'd get a better CV

I agree. 27 hours is amazing. The marathon of the gaming world.

Dakaruch
04-09-07, 19:27
more than 12 hours... i guess... from 14:00 pm to 24:00 pm
with 1 hour stop to take dinner

in these arms
04-09-07, 19:29
30 mins - 2 hours a day. Now I'm back at school, once every afternoon at least!

Mad Tony
04-09-07, 19:33
Ofcourse not. Once I didn't eat or drink in 2 days. I was tired and felt bad but I didn't pass out.:pI can believe the eating part, but not the drinking.

Sorry.

I should really stop going off topic. :o

Anyways, I'm not the type of person who likes to sit there and play solidly, I usually take breaks. But I have spent about 7 hours just sitting there playing Tomb Raider and only getting up to eat, drink or go use the bathroom a couple of times.

Ladyknowles
04-09-07, 19:34
Bloody hell! Thats extreeeeme!
haha
I guess I've done it with SSX 3
But it wouldn't beat tomb raider

Betal
04-09-07, 19:35
I can believe the eating part, but not the drinking.

I had a stomach surgery and wasn't allowed to eat or drink for 2 days before it.

(I swallowed 3 coins and they got stuck so they had to take them out:rolleyes:)

Ladyknowles
04-09-07, 19:36
wow! Thats a good excuse really!
What a good thing to do while your ill
Kudos to you.

Why won't it let me change my avatar?

04-09-07, 19:38
when legend came out! 8 hours non-stop, I have played much longer ofc but with pauses

VonCroy360
04-09-07, 19:40
I played Legend and Anniversary without stopping until I finished them. :)
Not counting the water and bathroom stops, offcourse. :p

Angelus
04-09-07, 19:42
I played Anniversary for 6 hours, with breaks for food and drink. :)

EDIT: 27 hours? Get a life! :p

7 Hours straight playing and completing TRL with ALL TTrials and Secrets. Maybe that's why it's my least fav... or maybe it's just a bad game.

Yeah, it is :vlol:

My best friend was over for a week. She knows how much I love tomb raider, so she said, why don't you try to play it, for over a day, without stopping??
And, I did, she fell asleep for a few hours though :vlol:

I played all trs, and then I worked on all secrets. And goofed around with my friend playing it. :p

I went to the restroom 3 times. At least 10 minutes of breaktime. My friend got me food from our food cabinets :p

My parents were taking a vacation. We were home alone playing tr! So fun!!!

My eyes were beat red from staring at the screen :vlol:

Ladyknowles
04-09-07, 19:50
I love how people even count their toilet trips.

Just shows, they are amazing games! :D

Sedge
04-09-07, 20:04
Hard to say exactly.. O.o Around a day, eh? With of course some toilet- and kitchenbreaks. :p

da tomb raider!
04-09-07, 20:12
I think I played Tomb Raider III for around 2 hours non-stop once. That's quite a lot of time for me, since if I spend too long gaming without taking a break from time to time, I get a headache and my eyes go dry.

Well, that's about it. Kid in Russia died after playing games for 12 hours without resting. I wouldn't like to try that.

Little-Lara
04-09-07, 21:13
/\ Ohh good lord. Are you serious?!?! :eek:

I can play 4-5 hours comfortably in one sitting. But if I have a cold or fever, then all my waking hours.

Ladyknowles
04-09-07, 21:15
I don't know what it is. But I seem to be able to go on for AGES without a break.

I never joke when it comes to such serious things. He really died. That's why I was so scared when I realised I have spent 8 chatting. I though: What if I die? But I think it depends on age and person's strenght.

My brother usually plays like from 10 am to 1 am every weekend. And he's sleeping upstairs right now alive.

And in Sweden there's something called dreamhack. It's when people play in 1-3 days only eating pizza and drinking cola. And they still live.

I'd want 'death by tomb raiding' on my death certificate.

And 'she was an intrepid loner' on my gravestone.

My longest marathon session has to be about 14hrs playing TR2, i can still remember it now, 4 in the morning playing 40 Fathoms, and after i eventually turned it of and went to bed, i had dreams replaying entire levels, sheer bliss. :D

Alex Fly
05-09-07, 09:44
Something like 9 or 10 hours.

Remember the new Tomb Raiders used to release around Nov 18? And my husband and I always took a week or two off during the Christmas holidays. So I would get the new TR as one of my gifts every year, and play it over the holidays.

One time I got really sick, too sick to go on vacation, so I stayed home by myself on the couch and played TR the whole week. I never left the couch I never turned off the game, I just dozed in between and ate soup once in a while.

This sounds like absolute bliss, and would certainly take you're mind of feeling sick, not that feeling ill is agood thing, but it does have it's perks, it's also a great excuse for any youngsters out there to get some quality raiding time in. :rolleyes:

For Tomb Raider, probably 5 hours. I don't really keep track, lol :p

Eddie Haskell
05-09-07, 13:13
Believe it or not it was Legend for me. I was nearing the end and I wanted to get it over with. I played it non-stop for about 4-5 hours until I was finished.

About 5 hours. I don't actually pay attention to those things! :p

Mad Tony
05-09-07, 13:25
I think I've once spent around 8 hours on just a couple of levels on TR II (can't remember which ones). Heh, funny how 8 hours was only a few levels on the classics (and that's if you were good) and the entire length of Legend.

I miss those days.

well you're very right... i still remember that i spent 7 hours in one level in TR4...

and that i spent 1 week trying to figure out a puzzle... i want that back...

That is what made those games boring.No, I'll tell you what's boring, spending 30 ($60) on a game you think is gonna be tense, exciting, challenging and a have a fair length to it but find out that it's only a mere 8 hours long, has the difficulty of a kids game, has all the blood and mature things that would normally be present in a Tomb Raider game removed, boring and cheesy storyline and about as scary as Dora The Explorer.

That's my opinion anyway.

If you could eat and drink
So
How long would it take for that seizure?

3 hours at a time max.

I spend on average an hour per session of gaming and if I have too many game overs before that due to frustrating so called challenges (I'm pointing at FFXII and TRA here) then I last about 10 minutes before switching off again.

I guess I've done it with SSX 3
But it wouldn't beat tomb raider
Well i dont know about Tomb Raider but me and a mate had a race on Final Fantasy 12 to see who could finish it first. i played it from 11pm friday til 1.30pm sat when i had dinner. at 2pm saturday i resumed and we were both neck and neck as he had eaten aswell and not slept. So resuming from 2pm saturday we played til 8am sunday which by that time we had been awake for 33 hours straight and i just couldnt keep my eyes open let alone concentrate so i had just 3 hours sleep from 8am till 11am sunday when my alarm woke me and by the by i didnt switch the ps2 off at all during the 3 hours sleep. so i resumed from 11am sunday til 1.30pm when i had dinner again just the same time as him and then from 2pm sunday we played it straight through till 4.30pm monday when he rang to say he had finished it FIRST!! I finished it at 6pm monday just 1 hour 30 mins after him. Afterwards i found out HOW THE PIERRE DUPONTS MAGNUMS he had beaten me despite me putting in such dedication. When i went to sleep for just 3 hours he had only gone for 1.30 mins and had told me that b4 we started the race he had gone over the shop and bought about 20 CANS OF RED BULL DRINK to help him A - stay awake and B - to concentrate more, something which i hadnt thought of and if i had been able to drink an average of 7 red bulls a day i wouldnt of needed as much sleep and could of focused better but he won nonetheless. We were able to do such a race as i had 10 days of work holiday and he had 5 days of work also. After i had finished at 6pm i swear on a copy of tr3 that i felt dreadful and could barely keep my eyes open. I went straight to bed and slept as deep as i have ever slept from 6pm monday til 1pm tueday afternoon!!!!!!!!!!

We had always had similair races as kids on tr2 and tr3 but those were no way to the extreme as our FF12 race as we were 13yrs and 14yrs old and our races then were races without compromising sleep or well being and on weekends as those big games were always released on the friday so we didnt have to worry about school. But im glad to say i won both races on 2 of my fave games ever!!!!

Anyway, only a few hours is the max I've played a TR game in one sitting.

longest, probably about two hours. you see I HAVE A LIFE! No not really, all i do is play games, probably actually say about six hours at a weekend. Longest game i've played in one go was probably RE2 for both Saturday and Sunday when i was getting the Hunk and tofu characters. Only stopped playing it for sleep. That was back when the ps1 rocked the world and i didn't work saturdays tho.
