Half Life 1, Counterstrike Source, and of course Halo 1 and 2 all nighter lan parties.

Let's see here... It's all mathematical. Going by "The Law of the Gaming Man" (I just made this up), you must cut your gaming time in half for each new big thing in your life of those 3.

Your time to game, broken down:

No kids, single, unemployed = 100% time
No kids, single, full-time job = 50% time
No kids, a significant other, full-time job = 25% time
Kids, a significant other, full-time job = 12.5% time to play games.

Once you throw in things you should probably care about, like eating, you're down another half to 6.25%, which gives you approximately 10.5 hours per week to play video games -- almost exactly your 9pm-9am schedule. :p ;)

That is so true!

Don't usually pull all-nighters for games particularly... but have at LANs.
Guess that would mean Starcraft, CS:S, CS 1.6 and Quake 3.

Oblivion. I was up all night, like 2 weeks ago, trying to raise my character's level to 10 so I could do the skeleton key quest.

one tons of times
1999/2000/2001/02....Delta Force 2...all night/day playing multiplayer

if i wasn't pulling an all nighter id usually go to bed at 4AM id stop playing the game at 3am then put the TV on FoodTV and watch Ming Tsai at 3am then i cant remember which came on but it was either The Galloping Gourmet or Molto Mario at 3:30am then id hit the sack at 4 and wake up at noon the next day and continue playing

i think ive pulled a few double/triple all nighters straight for the game...


there are others but none quite consumed my life like good ole Delta Force...ahh those were the days

Planetside (MMOFPS )

Pretty much any game I enjoyed, I played a lot... can't really say much else... haha... got 70 hours on TF2... Probably hundreds on Starcraft, Counterstrike, Planetside, Battlefield series... Diablo series...

Planetside in an Outfit (clan) on Ventrilo, it was so big we had people all over the world (For whatever reason, there were servers on the west and east coast but they logged into the west coast one). There was someone online, all the time. For a period of a summer that's literally all I did, I woke up, played planetside, fell asleep while playing, woke up and played some more. Occasionally taking a break to go to the bathroom or get something to eat, sad I know but it was worth it. And I haven't had as much fun playing computer games up until TF2... Although I really miss Planetside, back in the Beta days even when it was buggy as hell, learning everything there was about the game and figuring it all out was fun as hell.

Played for hours? I can list a ton of games.

Overnight? Only tribes and counter strike (pre 1.0 to 1.6) come to mind. I recently pulled an almost all nighter when I played tf2 for the first time. Started playing at 12 after getting done everything and thought I would check it out for a little bit only to look up and see the clock showing 4am.

OMG I forgot about Tribes.

I played Tribes 2 for hours on end... jesus christ that was fun too...

I downloaded the Tribes 1 Demo off Fileplanet and played for a little bit "this is kinda neat" and I go to the store to find out Tribes 2 was released THAT day. So I buy that... played ridiculous hours on that, Clan matches, disk duels... I miss that game too. Tribes Vengeance was fun but sort of a disappointment, hard to get the controls down until you'd been playing for a while. I forgot my old keybinds and really had more trouble picking it up again when I tried. Now the community is basically dead for that.

I still got my Halflife 1 Demo/Preview disk :D it's pretty funny how bad it looked back then (Quake 1... maybe worse)

doom over null modem... good fun..

x wing, tie fighter, b wing expansion.

we acctually built a small cockpit out of a closet with tinfoil over the louvered doors to keep light out, and modifyed a keyboard so that one person had flight and weapons controls, while the other had control over shields power management, and objective tracking... (b wing and the tie fighter expansion (forgot name) got hard like that.. there was no way you could move your hands fast enought to do what you needed to succeed at some of the missions... damn tie fighter and there non shielded asses...)

dealtforce... well.. not quite all nighters.. but still. tons of fun..

MS flight sim...98 i think it was.. got a gold edition from work (gamestop at the time) spent hours trying to land a 747 on the nimtiz (aircraft carrier) the odd part.. i succedded.. it was all about stalling the plane at just the right time and altitude.. so that the plain ploped down on the carrier ( more or less screwing with the game physics JUST so...)

recently... halflife,halflife 2, episode 1, episode 2 all back to back.. i was fried after that run...

doom 3... started around midnight... and succeded in scareing the crap out of my self... lol (not really, but i was sure jumpy at twitching objects in my peripheral vision for a few days...)

Starcraft for sure, I don't play it anymore, but it's top 3 of my favourite games.
Diablo 2, a shitload of time, mainly just magic finding and leveling with old roommate. Soul Calibur when the Dreamcast first came out, a bunch of use took turn fighting each other.

FF7
old school CS
Warcraft 2 when I got m first computer.

I'm sure there are a bunch more though.

mmmm, the first game to make me play all night on a night I shouldn't have was mechwarrior 2.

then came q2, my first MP game. I was OK until I discovered lithium mod, with the power up runes and off hand grapple. Good lord those were fun times.

Then BattleZone, good lord that game owned me. Had my father chew my ass out more then once for being a dipshit and staying up all night on a worknight playing. He had the right as I worked for him at the time :p

Then tribes made me even worse, and when renegades mod came out, I was a certified zombie.

Tribes 2 made me even worse then that

had fun with ut2k3 & 4, but they never made me pull allnighters except on weekends.

Will be getting TF 2, so we'll see about that one......

Anyone who's ever been or held a lan party at their house has to have some good stories of all nighters.

Earliest all nighter was probably back on the Nintendo playing Super Contra all night. I think I was 9 or 10.

When I got to college my first roommate and I would play You Don't Know Jack all night every once in awhile. Most of my college all nighters were intermingled with writing papers or finishing labs. I had to do something to keep me awake. We also had fun playing Worms over lan.

Once I discovered CS though, I lost ALOT of sleep. Never forget my clan lanning together and going to waffle house at 5:30 in the morning to find out that they were out of: napkins, straws, milk, orange juice, and yes, waffle mix.

Though I didn't start on it, I ended the night on Second Life. I downloaded it for a bit of a muck about with a girl in my class, and we had a great time ripping the piss out of all the people taking it far too seriously. I got bored and couldn't sleep, so entertained myself as a malformed, wheelchair-bound dwarf, pretending to befriend people and then making their horrifying, socially-deficient lives a total misery.

Anyone that seriously plays an RPG deserves all the contempt they undoubtedly get.

I've never pulled an "all-nighter" playing games; the latest I've stayed up was 4AM for a WoW raid. The sad part is that we were raiding Karazhan...


Bad luck with infernals on Prince, 8 tries on him and every time they manage to give us literally no breathing room at all. /sigh.
