    How many hours will you play straight your first time?

    So when you get your first encounter with D3. How many hours do you think you will put in? For myself, I'm guessing six. If work permits but I might just call out lol.

    Depends... if I have nothing to do the day after, I might just start it up at night and play straight-through for like 14 hours or so. I did that for Twilight Princess... 14 hours on Friday night, took a nap, 8 more hours and the game was done. I like to just get it out of the way and move on with my normal life.

    I have never anticipated a game more than d3. I'll probably play more than 8 hours straight.

    I guess about 2 hours, then another 1-2 later the same day if able. I don't like longer sessions because it's both a) unhealthy and b) makes me feel bad.

    Re: How many hours will you play straight your first time?

    Here is my plan:

    1 hour per class first play (so five hours). After each class I would write down my impressions (about 5-10 minutes) So about 6-7 hours but with about an hour of that as a break. I would probably have to take a 30 minute break to drive someone somewhere at somepoint or something.

    First 48 hours I will probably put in about 12-16 hours.

    You really really don't want to know. I'm too ashamed to reveal it!

    Re: How many hours will you play straight your first time?

    I will want to play a lot my first time. So I won't start it up till my first day off after I get the game, so it'll probably be 16 hours or a little more.

    Re: How many hours will you play straight your first time?

    I'll end up taking days off. I already took 2 days off for ACII and Dragon Age, I will probably do that for D3. Play from morning till night first night, try to stay up all night first night, and 2nd day play majority of the day and then sleep. I assume probably 30 something hours to begin with.

    Re: How many hours will you play straight your first time?

    Ahh, wont be anywhere near as much as Diablo II cause i have other stuff to do now (something like 60-70 hours straight)

    So maybe a weekend or so, normal sleep etc. If during the week, 8 hours after an early finish at work :)

    Yeaaah. I remember that time too. :crazyeyes: Anyway, I'm still planning to complete the game for the very first play. At least with one character. :D

    I'm self-employeed, so I'm thinking that I will come down with a case of N3-rd flu! 8)
    So, at least one eight to twelve hour day, with breaks.

    I really hoping for a Friday release so I can give it a full weekend!!!!!

    Re: How many hours will you play straight your first time?

    I remember when I first got my hands on Diablo 1, it was a Friday night and I believe I stopped playing early Monday morning because I had to go to school.......another reason why school SUX. I actually never slept. And oh it took me about an hour to figure out how to outdo the Butcher during our laps around his Butchroom. ALOT of Stone Curse scrolls.

    And that was then. D3 will be NOW, I totally believe it will exceed my highest expectations (and the art controversy starters can suck on that, bishop-bangers) and I'll be probably playing it for a week nonstop at least. I'll just use up my sick days. Sleep-deprived, I think it counts. Long Live the Wizard!

    Re: How many hours will you play straight your first time?

    I will play for a good two hours or so before someone knocks at the door. I will think it's my sister mooching food but it will end up being a delivery man with a package. Inside the package will be a cellphone. It will ring and on the other line will be myself from further in the future, but neither of us will realize. After we chat for a while though the future-future me will notice and my future self will be all like "no way". Then an older version of myself, who was actually the delivery man standing there the whole time, will bring a shotgun out of nowhere and shoot me in the face. Crime solved.

    So, if it's any good, probably "my free time" is the only remotely accurate time frame I can give.

    Definitely during my free time, probably like 2-5 hours a day, depending on the situation.

    And of course, only if D3 is good.

    I'd say it's good bro. With any luck you won't get shot in the face to close to the release date.

    For you to know the game is good you'd have to be from the future when the game is complete. And if you are from the future, give me some lotto numbers and make sure my future time traveling selves don't buy any weapons.

    I don't get how some of you can play for so long. To me, longer sessions not only make me feel bad about myself but also usually result in boredom and eventually a complete loss of interest in the game. Variety is the spice of life.
