From start to finish what series could you play in one sitting?
I only wanted to put 5 up there, but there is 20 game series that I could play in one sitting....that's why I put other as on option
I said Gears of War, but I really meant TES.

One sitting? I'd like to see that...
Haven't played Dead Space yet, but pretty much any of these. Would enjoy Gears the most though.

Splinter Cell?

Splinter Cell would probably be the closest. Followed by Halo then AC. Saint's Row would be a good one as well. SR2 was a freaking blast to play, and that was done 100% in co-op. I haven't touched SR3 yet, but from what I'm told, it's everything great about SR2 ten fold.

No Dead Space fans?!

In fact, every time I see the HD collection for PS3, I think about actually doing this...

Now, the next step in this question would be which *continuous* series vs *non-continuous* series...

(Assassin's Creed, Mass Effect, Batman: Arkham, and Hitman come in really close...)

Non-continuous: The Elder Scrolls. Hands-down, my favorite (although, they are very much linked-intertwined. They may in fact be somewhere in the middle - Not as disconnected as god-awful Final Fantasy stuff...)

I think ME is my winner for continuous series. Followed by SR. Granted I'm only touching the surface of SR vs having been through all of ME, And while Splinter Cell is great, I don't think it holds up to SR or ME. While TES does have lots of lore and background... It just doesn't seem as important or relevant vs what ME has over the length of the series.

As for the Non-contiguous series... FF is amazing. I have played 1-6 straight, but I also ran through Dragon Warrior 1-8? as well.. I haven't been through enough of the Phantasy Star series to be able to give a proper judgement.

I enjoyed Gears games in one sitting, a few times actually, with friends, split screen, etc. But my favorite weekend waster will always be Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. I have replayed that game more than any other, and often in one sitting.
