    I know my play hours aren't astronomical like others, but it would be 300+ hours in the Mass Effect franchise and 150+ in Borderlands as by far my top two. I've played quite a lot of different games over the years (still working on that steam backlog...), but I must say nothing compares to ME in my mind. I mean, the gameplay can be awkward, the level design can be linear, and the story sometimes full of cliches, but goddamn if I don't get invested it with every playthrough. There's something about the world they created that feels so alive that I haven't gotten from any other game. I'm sure others will disagree, but that's my $.02.

      Ditto on Mass Effect. I agree with your points on the cliche plot. I think two things made the game shine for me. First, the writing and voice acting were superb. Second, the game was masterful at setting a tone. The tension, romance, the quick unexpected interjections of humor, despair, elation. The game was the very definition of a feel trip.
