I stopped playing at 8 hours 30 minutes.  Which is a lot for one day, at least for me.

It arrived at 3:00 PM and it's now 2:00 AM and I haven't left my seat here. Been playing the whole time.

Wow, that is a lot! I'm still waiting for my copy, but i'm sure i won't be able to play more then a couple of hours because of work and stuff. I think i'll get the game tomorrow (thursday) which is good, with the weekend coming up givng me some time to spent on it.

Heh, nice! I played 15 hours over two days now. That is a lot more than I usally spend on a game now a-days. Cant wait to get back at it. Most def one of my favorite games of all time! Im expecting a GOTY, even though its a early 2010 release.

None, :( 
 
I got the game on launch day, but I have been stuck away from my Xbox since then.

It isn't out till Friday here... Lucky bastards. That said I am replaying ME1 so I have all the choices that I'm sure I want for my imported save. I played 7 hours today and I'm probably gonna play at least another 2-3 hours before I collapse into bed.

#13 Edited by Napalm (9020 posts) -

Eight hours and fifty minutes. Wowzers.
 
It also sounds like us who landed around eight hours did similar things such as picked it up in the morning, but didn't play it until three or four pm. I stopped at about 12:30 am.

#14 Posted by CitizenKane (10506 posts) -

Ask me again in a couple days.

#27 Posted by septim (774 posts) -

Luckily Tuesdays I don't have class. I picked it up a little after noon and played it til like 9 PM. I rarely ever play games like that which goes to show you how amazing this game is. Everything just flows so nicely, the first game would be really engrossing for a period followed by a confused running around a poorly designed world, this game fixes that and it makes it so much more playable.

#28 Posted by Kombat (2205 posts) -

Only a couple.  Have an exam tomorrow and I needed to study some.  Unfortunately, I'll probably only barely get to the game today.  Fucking non-major courses.

#29 Posted by TaccyP (307 posts) -

Nearly 7 hours straight. My god this game is good.

Then what was the point in posting on here?
 
I won't have it 'til tomorrow or Friday, but I have been playing a fair bit of ME1. Clocked about 5 hours of that on Tuesday.

#33 Posted by HT101 (1153 posts) -

I played about 3-4 hours yesterday.  Will play more today when I get back home.

#34 Posted by DoctorTran (1556 posts) -

About 9 hours. And I love your Avatar. Just watched that the other day.

#35 Posted by kidko (85 posts) -

Don't remember the hour count but I finished getting Mordin and "Archangel" then took the Cerberus side quest  and saved right as I landed on the planet. It was 1AM and i had to be up by 7 so it was time to quit. Can't F'n wait to get home

#36 Posted by iBePeRFeCT (396 posts) -

A little over 5 hours.  I need more so I'm getting off here so I can play.

#37 Posted by HistoryInRust (6293 posts) -

I played a total of four hours of Mass Effect yesterday. But that's a misleading statistic, because I had to spend two of those hours finishing the first game so that I could port my character to the second. 
 
So, technically, two hours?

#38 Edited by CSXLoser (582 posts) -

i played Mass Effect 2 for 15 hrs 59 mins day one (only getting up to piss, eat, and shower).
 
11am-3am.
 
Nevertheless, i woke up with the Mass Effect 2 hangover the next day...and i still played more >.>
 
Thank god i didn't get it during the weekdays... my grades would just pummet

#39 Posted by carlthenimrod (1594 posts) -

I played it for like 8-9 hours on first day. Up to like 15 hours. It's hard to put down.
 
Also, your avatar rocks. MST3K FTW

So, in the end, I played for 16 hours in my first sitting before finally having to crawl into bed and pass out.

#45 Posted by Nictel (2412 posts) -

About an hour before windows decided it was a good time to reboot and install "important" updates in the middle of a cutscene!

#46 Posted by RHCPfan24 (8609 posts) -

Exactly the same. About to go on a long poopsocking session.
#49 Posted by Lydian_Sel (2485 posts) -

I started at midnight last night & donked out at 2pm this afternoon, taking a few breaks to have showers & rage at EA tech support.

#50 Edited by xyzygy (9953 posts) -

I'm just gonna put it out there, this is my second day of having the game... I woke up and 9 this morning, am going to bed right now at 6:40 AM. I started playing about an hou afte I woke up, so that's... 
 
20 hrs 40 minutes?  :P 
 
I probably spent an hour total today making food, breaks, etc., so I'd put that estimate more around an actual 19.5 - 20 hrs of playtime in one sitting.
