    3 of those games in the list are day 1 releases and didn't take me too long to complete. The sports games with I think 5 or 6 cheevs were quick and fairly easy. Condemned wasn't that hard or long either. Not sure how they made this list.

    Dont have details on hand but:

    As far as Days between start and finish, very likely Just Cause 2.

    As far as actual time spent playing, most likely Forza Motorsport 4.

    I just saw this article. Coincidentally, I just completed Meet the Robinsons after 12.5 years. Unfortunately, I apparently was disconnected from XBL for a handful of the achievements at the start of the game. The first time-stamped achievement I had was 04/06/2007. I just finished the game on Saturday, so that makes 4572 days. Pretty close to being on the master list!

    I don't have actual stats, but the one that springs to mine is Gears of War 2 - First played on 07 Nov 08 , Completed on 13 Jan 11. Just that 3+ years between start and finish, including all DLCs.

    Can't have been far off that top 10 with Hexic HD @ 4410 days.

    A little ticked I didn't make this list with my 4668 days to complete Over G fighters. Good job Amethystine for completing 2 long-standing games within 2 days of each other, each one beating my total.

    11/20/2006 - 9/11/2019 Good Riddance, Over G. Happy to help anyone else get Premium Reward 6 if they need it!

    Hope you noticed my effort, O writer of this article! Thanks

    unfortunately TA does not have something like Steam that marks how many hours you played, at least not on Xbox 360, I really have no idea how long it takes me to complete because I start in one day and stop playing for a long time.

    That's not TA's fault. Their info comes from Xbox Live which doesn't require games to have a metric to track that statistic. Even on Xbox One some games have it but a lot still don't. Since Steam is it's own seller and service it tracks directly from itself. If we played "on" TA it would most certainly be a tracked statistic.

    Also every single game you've completed including 360 games for the purpose of this question, is known to everyone with an account here.

    Yours is Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (Xbox 360) at 1636 days 15 hours 53 minutes

    My longest gap is Bioshock on the 360 - 3211 days 17 hours 58 minutes.

    I played it way back when I wasn't an achievement hunter and then when I wanted to play it again I waited for a few more years because I was hoping I could forget the ending and enjoy it all over again.

    The longest I have taken is with Halo: Reach at 2008 days 2 hours 58 minutes

    It was actually longer than this as I first played the game offline before I had Xbox Live Gold around 2010 or 2011, but I can't remember the exact date I first played it.
