So, does anyone have any suggestions for great games I could spend days playing? I need something to get REALLY hooked on. A good distraction. I've already played Skyrim, Oblivion, and most of the Fable games. I spent hours playing those.

Obviously I would recommend Skyrim for a great game for someone to get hooked on, if they haven't already played it. :)

I was gonna say the Mass Effect trilogy, but I think I saw in another thread that you've played them already. Those kept my attention for a very long time. I can't really think of anything else though, if I do I'll be sure to come back and post.

If you have a PS3 or Vita, Persona 3 and 4 are 85+ hour RPGs that will suck you in. Raynic made a very good suggestion with the Mass Effect Trilogy, those are sci-fi adventures that each take 50+ hours to complete. There's also Okami HD on the PS3, takes around 50 hours to finish and is a beautiful game with charming characters and story. (Edit: just saw OP has a Ganondorf avatar. If you haven't played Okami yet you would definitely love it, very Zelda-like.)
I might look into Persona myself. I've heard really good things about them, but never played them. Plus, 85+ hours is really good.

Dark Souls and Fallout are awesome.
The Last of us multiplayer is pretty addictive.
There's always Red Dead Redemption

They're very moddable and have a nice list of mods too. Best creepy atmosphere of any game out there, except maybe the Metro series

Final Fantasy Tactics.


A hard game with a lot of fun battles. Unlock classes and capture monsters to fight for you. And you can get this game on many platform like iphone(soon for android), PSone and PS vita.

Most of the games that I've been hooked to are RPGs. I'll just list some games/game franchises and how long I played each one for before getting bored, or simply not having anything else left to do.

Fallout 3 - 60+ hours
Mass Effect - 100+ hours (whole trilogy)
Persona 4 - 145 hours
Spore - 80+ hours
Kingdoms of Amalur - 50-ish hours
Dragon's Dogma - 35 hours
The Witcher - 60+ hours (both games)
World of Warcraft - 100+ hours
Pokemon - 300+ hours (been playing every title in this series since Pokemon Yellow, lol)
Dark Souls - 80 hours (about 170 hours in total for all three of the games in this series)

I'm currently addicted to Tokyo Jungle on the PS3, which I only brought a few days ago. Great, unique little game, never played anything quite like it before.

This. I'm obsessed with everything Dark Souls.

Resogun is good if you have a PS4. I spent a lot of time with Mortal Kombat 9 and Batman: Arkham City.

I like how wizards of the coast is trying to beat up on Hex. Like they're losing any steam. People are paying hundreds of dollars for pieces of pressed cardboard, and they can basically mint money with those special release sets they have, but no more online competition allowed! :)

Tomb Raider is a good one, especially if you're going for a 100% completion.

Fallout 3 and New Vegas. I spent a whole summer just playing new vegas completing everything and going through dlc. It's addicting.

Honestly I would recommend MMORPGs. They give you hour after hour of entertainment and you can meet some pretty awesome people through them :) Like World of Warcraft, Guild Wars 2 etc. :)
