The year was 1989. The game was Hero's Quest from Sierra.
My friend Ricky and I started playing it in the later afternoon. It was not dark yet. We played that sucker into the night and had a blast. In fact, we actually beat it! As we congratulated each other on our amazing accomplishment, we happened to look out the window and notice it was light outside.
It was almost eight in the morning. We had just played a video game for about 15 hours straight. It was awesome.
So how about you, dear readers? What is the longest amount of time you've ever spent gaming? Have you ever pulled an all-nighter or are you happy with short bursts of gaming goodness?
Vote in the poll and reveal your deep, dark secret to us all! Then hop in the comments and tell us all about it. What was the game? Did you get in trouble with your mom? Ever miss something important like school, a job interview or a trip to Disneyland because you were too busy grinding XP? Inquiring (and incredibly nosey) minds want to know.
Don't forget, you can email your stories to us at SuperPACpodcast@gmail.com as well.
The results of this poll are just one of the things EZK and I will yammer about on next week's podcast so be sure to tune in!
