At some point, we all find a game we become quite engaged with and spend many hours with a controller in our hands.  So, my question is how long have you spent playing a game on your 360, without turning your console off or stepping away for extended periods of time?

It all started with Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, this game is mad addictive and I found myself at one time playing for eight hours straight.

PS... That was all eight hours on Xbox Live, the best multiplayer to ddate.

A few months ago me and my friends had a massive Diablo II marathon going, but I cannot remember the amount of time spent.

I played Call of Duty for probably 4-5 hours straight, but I can't really play games that long without doing something else in between.

When Halo 2 came out I recall being sick, and basically spent the whole day home from school finishing up the single player campaign, which would probably be roughly 8 or so hours.

Under usual circumstances i usually drink an alcoholic beverage when gaming. My gaming sessions tend not to last overly long due to that fact.

I was sick when Brawl came out. Like 8 hours in one sitting to beat the Subspace Emissary.
That's not for the 360, but it's all I can remember.

I think once I played Oblivion for like 11 hours or something. This was when it first came out mind you and there really wasn't much to play at the time.

back when Halo 2 was out i'd play anywhere from 8-14 hours a Day for about the first 3 months of its launch and average about 5 hours  a day for the first year it was out. since then i haven't played nearly as much. But when the Halo 3 beta came out i broke my 14 hour record and played the beta for 18 straight hours. very recently I played Halo 3 again for about 18 hours straight again and that still holds as my record.

I usually have difficulty playing a game for more then 2 or so hours straight unless I'm really into it, but on 360 I played oblivion for about 5 hours with barely a few 5-10 minute breaks during to go on the computer or get a drink.

Being that I am a Dad with lots of stuff going on, I find it tough to game for a couple of hours now (maybe some of you understand).  I did play GTA4 recently for 13 hours, though!  I did take some breaks to attend some stuff around the house, but an all day gaming session like that happens very rarely for me anymore.

My main buddies and I from gamespot had this crew who would play Gears everyday. I remember one of those days we had a 10 hour marathon, it was awesome.

Probably the most time I ever spent without moving is most likely World of Warcraft. I can do it with any game, but WoW is just different. Don't like it anymore but, you understand.

mass effect I played it for 9 hours strait and became horribly disgusted with the game. I haven't beat it yet and I dont think I will ever play it again. it was good but I can't get back in the groove to play it anymore.

GTA IV I played that for about 13 hours strait the first day I got it. then slept, and the next day continued for another 7 hours until my box finally got the RROD.

FF 12 I played for literally 20 hours strait.

And finally pokemon pearl I played for 8 hours on the day it was released.

Oh ya, I forgot about WoW. I used to live off of it and not sleep during week ends. But  I can't look at WoW anymore; I'm sick of it.
