Pokemon Stadium 1 & 2 minigames. I've probably played those more than the main games.

Not sure if they fall into this category, but WoW's battlegrounds. There have been many months when I subscribed just to play a few Alterac battles every night, and nothing else.

I spent an unhealthy amount of time playing darts and going bowling in Yakuza 0. So much so that at least 85% of a typical 4 hour play time of the game for me would be spent at the bowling alley or challenging NPCs in darts lol. It's addicting!

In FFX, I played a whole lot of Blitzball once I got the hang of it (aka, once I realized it was all just simple math!)

I wish some of these mini games turn into full fledged games like gwent did. Even releasing on mobile would be preferred.

I dunno if I'd go that far, as I beat the fuck out of that game (all platinum medals in the challenges and beat the game on whatever the hardest difficulty was (it was really fucking hard)), but I also beat all the high scores in the three minigames, so clearly I enjoyed them quite a bit as well. Anaconda was definitely the best, probably my favorite snakelike ever, but Astro Lander was a close second, and a really good Lunar Lander clone. Plus, dat music. (The third minigame was a pretty shitty topdown racer, unfortunately.)

Triple Triad, I'd always go for Lionheart on Disc 1 and get energy crystals through Card Mod, but now after doing this so many times, I decided to just start from a save instead of completely over. So now whenever I replay FFVIII, I start with five hours of playtime, first five card pages(minus PuPu, can't get it until much later), Ifrit, Minimog, and Quistis cards along with two energy crystals(20 Elnoyles) to get Lionheart in Deling City, all before leaving for Dollet, so around 20-30m into the game were you not to go Triple Triad crazy.

Millenium Puzzle in Wild Arms 3. You can find about 20 of them on the world map and as soon as I found one I stopped the story right there and tried to solve it.

Triple Triad is the real game and FFVIII is the mini-game.

Chocobo Hot N' Cold in FFIX is also amusing.

Since there was a swedish national Nintendo competition, and yoshi's touch and go was a game during qualifiers, I put all my efforts into that for weeks, never having played a game that much before or after.

Score attack (with 5min self imposed timer, since that could easily be maxed otherwise),

Got I think the second best record during practice in Sweden. 758 was the score if i recall, there is soo much room for optimizing in that little minigame it's insane(but a external timer is neccesary)!

Other then that, i remember the cannon minigame in sm64 ds was alot of fun.

Nothing's coming off the top of my head right now, but holy, if Mario 64 DS counts then that most definitely. Had to have spent 40+ hours in that thing.


Stealth edit: Ah yeah, Monkey Ball as well, for sure! Monkey Target needs to come back as a downloadable.
