guild wars, the only mmorpg i ever played, with around 2k hours clocked across 10+ characters for the past 6-7 years.

before that though, i'm pretty sure it was PSO...i clocked in well over 200 hours on at least 3 characters that i can recall.

99:99 hours clocked for FF IV. Collected every Summon in that game, plus found the Square Easter egg that was supposed to be the in-game version of their development office (which, by the way, is in the troll king's castle).

999 hours clocked for Pokemon Emerald. Finally found the Adamant nature, Shiny Beldum everyone is/was after.

Some others, like Brave Fencer Musashi, but can't remember.

If you count every version of Birth By Sleep that I've played (JP, EN, Final Mix), I've probably got well over 500 hours... and I think I might actually have close to that in KH2 if you count all my files just because it's a longer game.

But one single game? Might be one of my Pokemon files. I think I have ~300 hours in Diamond.

RuneScape! Played it around 7 or 8 years, and still play it. Probably have a couple thousand hours on that, although most of it consists of bankstanding.. xD
On Monster Hunter Tri, I have around 300 hours, so that would be the most I have recorded on any game. I think FireRed had 200 hours, and the rest of my games I never really cared to look at the game time.

If online games are counted, it'd definitely be Grand Chase. Let's say I average around 2.5 hours every day, and I've been playing for around 2 and a half years, so that would amount to around 2300 hours of game time.

Offline, though, I'd say minesweeper. Yes, I'm serious. I mean, I've played it starting around 10 years ago, and it' become part of my daily ritual. It eats up around an hour of my time every time I open it, and I have a task bar shortcut for it. Now, if you don't consider minesweeper a game, then it would be Dissidia Duodecim (824 h), which I still suck at despite playing for so much.

I'm sure I've got many thousands of hours in CSS... but as far as games that actually record your play time, I've got about 600 hours in sapphire, and several hundred in nearly every other version.

If we're counting MMOs... Runescape would be waaay up there. Been playing it for over 10 years. lol

About 500 hrs on PES 2012.
Yes, I am too lazy to go out and play football as I do not have any close friends that can play.
Coming in second place is Pokemon Heart Gold, I believe there's about 300~400 hours in that save.

Unofficially I'm sure I clocked well over a thousand hours on WoW back when I played, but that hardly counts, darn MMOs. Monster Hunter Tri had about 700 hours on it when I finished. Was HR 130 with nearly every weapon and armor. xD

Maxed Emerald time I also played 34 days and 24 hours on Call Of Duty 4 Online. Don't believe me, then you could have added me, but I sold my xbox haha but seriously, that's the only game I played on xbox from September 2007.

Monster Hunter Freedom Unite at about 700 hours.
If you want a skill benchmark: I've completed all of the arena training with every weapon.

In a single file probably one of my Pokemon games. Most likely Silver or Ruby but I'm not too certain.

Overall though definitely Tales of Symphonia. I'm not sure how many hours exactly because multiple files (I don't transfer over play time) + times when I just play for hours trying to beat things up Abyssion but it's ranked up there preeeeetty high. ♥

100 hours in Pokemon: Soul Silver, 75 hours in Team Fortress 2, and I am guessing around 300 hours in Minecraft. And I think I have around 200 hours in Call of Duty: Black Ops (including zombies, and I don't even play on my Xbox anymore...) Oh and just got into Garry's Mod, already hit 24 hours on that. Oh and Pokemon: Pearl has 96 hours on it. Also my Mario Kart Wii has around 100 hours on it as well. That's many days of my life wasted on video games... Correction: Many days in my life enjoyed playing video games.

About 400 hours on Pokemon Sapphire and over 700 in Tales of the Abyss. (PS2 version, I just started the 3DS version)
Hacks I'm working on:
Pokemon Sapphire Hoenn's Rebirth - My own hack, making progress whenever possible.
3rd Gen Multiplayer Project - Research and development, occasionally testing, sometimes with support.
Pokemon Cursed/Creepy White - Group project, on hiatus for now with plans to return eventually.
Animal Crossing Wild World playing as an animal - experimental, messing with models and textures

Hacks I've worked on in the past:
Pokemon Ruby Destiny Broken Timeline (pre-reboot) - Assisted with maps
Pokemon HeartGold Prince Boo Edition - Experimental project with three small changes. Made at the request of YouTube LPer PrinceBoo21.

Been super busy with work, life, and laptop problems. Hopefully I can get back into it soon, I fear I'm already rusty. Meanwhile I'm considering writing some of my hacks as a series of fanfics.

I think it was Monster Hunter Tri for me. I think I had around 600+ hours in that game, but to compete with that would probably be Pokemon Platinum, I think that had around 500 - 600 hours too. They were like the only two games I played lol

I get bored of post-game content rather quickly in a lot of games, so I have a tendency to just restart shortly after beating the game. XD

Because of this, the 200-some-odd hours I clocked in my first Pokémon HeartGold file was pretty impressive by my standards. While I did most of my more ambitious breeding projects in that file, a lot of it was just my brother repeatedly playing the Battle Factory though. XD

It's not much compared to what everyone else has, but my highest is 125 hours on Pokemon Diamond. I just really like the underground.

It'd probably be Fallout 3, in my case. It's still one of my all-time favorite games.

And sure enough it is! I have over 360 hours in Mario Kart 7.
