I usually play between 30 minutes and 2 hours, ocassionally stretching it to 3 hours if it's really engrossing. The only recorded exceptions to that are Shining Force and Final Fantasy 6, which I played for 5 hours each on my initial session, and Etrian Odyssey and The Dark Spire, which I played for 6 hours each. Obviously quality does not play a factor in the length of my play sessions. The longest I ever played a game was when I made a bet with my friend that I could play and beat Dragon Warrior in one night. I started at 7 PM and played it non-stop until I got to the final dungeon at 7 AM, when I finally passed out.

I typically play in one hour intervals to give my eyes a rest between games since it's sort of recommended during said playtime, unless I'm in a spot where I can't perma-save easily, in which case it can go for up to somewhere over two hours, for example, if I'm grinding in the Item World in the Disgaea games.
