I've had plenty of 4-5 hour gaming sessions. They mostly happen on Saturday and Sunday afternoons where I've had no plans and nothing to do.
I haven't really kept track, but I'm sure that I've had a few that go up to 8-9 hours. Those were probably during the summer a few years back.

A handful of 30+ hour times in the summers of highschool when racing friends to 99s. For better or worse life won't allow me much more then 6-8 hour sessions now (thats after an 8 hour work day too so usually don't even stay that long). While grinding through 120 dungeoneering the 6 hour log out was decently common as it seemed time just slipped away dungeoneering, but most other things I enjoy atleast a 15 minute break every 3 hours or so.

I do a lot of really small breaks (2-5minutes), but 6hours a day for me is pretty average. On my day off, unless I'm studying psychology or doing my research on lucid dreaming, I pretty much reach 10-12hours on runescape.

Now that I wonder about it....Why am I not even maxed yet 0o

ps: I don't care a bit about "playing for 10 hours is not healthy". When I am into reading, or sports, or even my research on lucid dreaming I can also do those activities for long periods. I do what I like and I have fun doing it :)

I'm part of the what I call middle generation of rs. I am 18, and gonna be a senior in high school. I started in 2006, but when I was younger, my parents really controlled how much I play (still do to an extent.) so my longest sessions come when I'm at a friends house. Once in college though, there's no telling how much I'll play.

Back in the day i remember playing an average of 9 or 10 hours a day for about 6 or 7 months straight. I had those days where i'd even go 15 or 16 hours of RS. Yep.
I think even now if i take my game-time and the date i made my account it comes out at something like an average of 6 hours a day (and i've been away from RS for a total of 12 months maybe 13, on and off since account creation)

I regularly get in huge amounts of time. Of course, I'm usually doing something else like browsing forums or reading hard-copy stuff. I ain't gonna look up my skirt for three hours while I fish. :-P

I pull 12-15 hours quite often to be honest. I think once I played for around 40 hours to win a training contest haha.. Never again. I like sleep way too much.

About 15 hours of firemaking but that was only for one day. I did 10-12 hours a day for a week for 99 defense. Don't play nearly as much anymore though, that was a few years ago.

Nonstop without any sort of breaks? 3 hours maybe at most. Though I think I have played around 10 hours during one day few times. My head starts to hurt after a few hours though, so I rarely play longer periods. And I can't see how anyone could think it not being unhealthy to play 10 hours or more during a day... Or daily for that matter.

I think my longest playing time is maybe 10 hours a couple years ago. I'm lucky to get 4 hours of straight gaming time in now. I usually play about 2 hours straight and then take a break, then repeat. When I started playing back in 2006 and was still F2P, I never played all that much, but once I got membership, I started playing non-stop for hours on end.

But now that I'm in college, I only get to play during the summer. I'd love to play for 10+ hours on end, but I have to take breaks now because I either get bored of playing or want to go watch a TV show or something like that.

About 4 for me nowadays.. Too much work!!

P2P offers more and better ways of making money than f2p. That's one of the cons you just have to play with if you don't feel like having 1 bigmac meal less per month.

I've played well over 24 hours straight back in the day. I know it sounds absurd, but when you and your best friend have the house to yourself and two computers back when RuneScape was popular? Oh man.

I think I got up to 10 or 11 hours once while doing sacred clay, getting many of the hammers I needed to advance construction. I spent much less time on the actual skill :lol:

I also put in some long days back when I was doing 99Wc. Probably got up into the 9-12 hour range once or twice.

The longest I've played in one day was probably something like 18 hours, back when I was getting 99 cooking. No wonder I went from 90 to 99 in two days and a half.

I may of had a few six hour runs back awhile ago (3-4 years maybe less) but now I didn't even know there was an autolog until I read this thread. I honestly can't stand doing many activities such as runescape, or even reading, where it ends up being pretty much the exact same thing the entire time for very long (2-3 hours or so) unless I have a goal set. Now something where it gets changed up even a little (video games, etc..) I can easily start when I wake up (9 O'clock-ish) and play until I either get kicked of, hungry enough that I need more than an intermission to get food, or I want to sleep.

This entire thread makes me look like a disgrace, lol.




No one has as many hours as I do :(.

Went from 97-99 thieving at plunder in the same day, that's probably the longest. :P

I like the way Engstrom talks about the feeling of realism and immersion. Can you imagine how he must feel when one of the Al-Kharid warriors drops a spin ticket?

As far as literally playing straight with only bathroom/quick food breaks, 12-13 hours.

But there were definitely days where I'd play all day for like 8 hours, then all night for another 8 hours.
