Game with the longest loading time?

Postby Zenaku » Wed Apr 03, 2013 12:25 am

I'm trying to play Red Dead Redemption online with a friend, but the loading screen loops. After about 2 or 3 minutes, I started to get curious as to which game has the longest loading time?
Some rules:
1. No pc titles. That depends on the hardware, so consoles only.
2. Installation time doesn't count, so this doesn't turn into a PS3 hate thread.

The Sims 3 with all of the expansions.

My computer can emulate gamecube games at 99% efficiency and download several gigabytes of information in a few minutes.

But this fucking game.

Still takes 3 and a half minutes to fully load.

It's like it was optimized by monkeys.

Agreed. I tried playing it, but the loading just did me in.

SplatterHouse 360, my god, I can't even play that game because of it. You fail, 2 mins of loading, you get further 2 mins of loading. It's not a bad game, but still unplayable with the load time.
Halo2 wasn't super great.
Mass Effect 3 drags you through like 6 loading screens when trying to jump into a multiplayer game with an Xbox Party.

You can give birth to a baby in the time it takes that game to load.

Y'all forgot Fable 2.
The loading screen would actually freeze the game sometimes.

Shadow the Hedgehog too. Not the freezing part, just massive loading screen issues.

Entering level (10 Second loading screen)
Someone talks in the level (10 Second loading screen)
Beat the level (10 second loading screen)
Cut-scene (Two 10 second loading screens.)
Cut-scene with multiple locations (Up to ten 10 second loading screens)

I swear, if I were to count every second you load in Shadow, you may end up with like 10% of the entire game being loading screens.

Really? Hitman : Absolution has a long loading screen? I'm pretty surprised.

That a really random game, Mir. I would never have expected it of you.

Turned out I had a bad copy of Red Dead.

Uncharted 3 had a lengthy loading time. But in the end, it was worth it!
