Which Game Did You Complete In One Sitting?
There are some games that are simply impossible to turn away from. Whether that’s because they’re absurdly addictive, incredibly interesting or just seriously spectacular (eat my alliteration), there’s no force on earth that can get you to stop playing them. Or at least, in your mind.
Real life always has other ideas.

Anyway, the question I pose to you today is: have you ever found a game just so good that you completed it in one sitting? If so, which game was it? Be sure to tell us why as well.
Of course I am not particularly referring to really short games, as in games like Journey that are meant to be finished in one sitting and not over a prolonged period of time.
Speaking personally, the last game that had me stuck playing it for too many hours was incidentally Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, because it’s dangerously addictive despite its rubbish story and weird pacing. That open world.
But to actually answer my own question, I can recall a game that I finished in one sitting. I played it from ten in the evening, pulled an all-nighter and carried on until seven or eight in the morning until it was done.
That game was The Walking Dead by Telltale Games.
I just couldn’t take myself away from it. It was too captivating, too interesting and too amazing. Every time I had the slightest inclination to call it quits, something exciting happened or the episode ended on a note where I just had to continue out of sheer curiousity.
There have been other games I’ve completed in a single sitting, but not all the stories are good. I completed Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II in one game session. I was reviewing the game and to my surprise it just ended in one afternoon – but I can’t say I was upset about that considering how dead average or worse the game itself was.
Tell me then. Which games have you completed in one sitting, and what were the reasons behind that?
