Archive Bingeing is common for first-timers of [[TVTropesWillRuinYourLife this wiki]], (and [[TheOtherWiki the other one]]) as ''Webcomic/{{xkcd}}'' [[http://xkcd.com/609/ has pointed out.]] It is also an increasingly common phenomenon with regard to TV shows, now that it is possible to buy whole seasons of a long running show on DVD or watch them on streaming video services such as {{Creator/Netflix}}.

* [[http://crpgaddict.blogspot.com/ The CRPG Addict]] blog chronicles one man's massive undertaking to play (and finish!) ''every single'' RPG game ever released on any computer, in chronological order. He started at the beginning of 2010 with 1980's ''[[Franchise/{{Ultima}} Akalabeth: World of Doom]]'', and by late 2014 was in 1990, with just 24 more years of video gaming history to wade through.

** Series of Let's Plays. Want to experience Nakar's wonderful tales about the exploits of [[HeroicComedicSociopath Steve]] the [[Franchise/{{Ultima}} Avatar]] in full? Then you have six full-length Let's Plays ahead of yourself (''VideoGame/UltimaIV'', ''[[VideoGame/UltimaV V]]'', ''[[VideoGame/UltimaVI VI]]'', ''Martian Dreams'', ''[[VideoGame/UltimaVII VII]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/UltimaVIIPartII Serpent Isle]]''). Love The Dark Id's snarky style as he tears apart the ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'' games? Again, seven entire Let's Plays.

** Obviously, the ''GameGrumps'' channel which in only five years has created ''thousands of videos'', an average of three new ones ''a day''.

* ''Webcomic/PennyArcade'': Though it's entirely episodic, you really can't not read the old strips. And since Tycho and Gabe have been doing the same strip for longer than most webcomic creators have been in the business, you're in for a lot of reading. It doesn't help that they seem to have a comic on just about any topic even vaguely related to video games, which are frequently linked to on this very website. Yes, there's PA in your TVTropes so you can binge while you [[TVTropesWillRuinYourLife binge]].

** It's even worse if -- after finishing binging a work -- you then proceed to read through its TVTropes page (and all subpages, such as WildMassGuessing), and then check out its "related links". If it's a work popular among tropers, this secondary binge can take a relatively long time.

* ''Webcomic/ItsWalky'' (with [[WalkyVerse its spinoffs]]) has been going on for 15 years, but is especially bad because it has a rather detailed plot.

At this point, newcomers to ''Irregular Webcomic!'' can expect to go through multiple {{Archive Binge}}s.

* ''FanFic/MyImmortal''. You hear amusing lines from it. You hear about it. You want to know: "Is it really THIS stupid/silly/bad/awesome beyond compare?" So you read up on it, not wanting to receive the brain damage you've heard you'll get from reading it. Then you give up and read the whole thing out of curiosity, and bile fascination makes you read the whole thing (or you're generally amused by Enoby's adventures). So is it really as stupid/silly/bad/awesome beyond compare as everyone says? Answer: [[spoiler:Yes. A million times, YES.]]

** But one could always check [[http://www.crunchyroll.com/ Crunchyroll]], they have quite a few series an average person would've never heard of otherwise. Unfortunately, a lot of the anime available on Crunchyroll is region-locked, too, but not all of it, unlike Hulu. And most of the titles available on Hulu are not available on Crunchyroll.

* ''Franchise/TheSlenderManMythos'' contains a crap-ton of stories to browse through. And by the time you've read through a good portion of them, [[SpeakOfTheDevil your curiosity will already have summoned Slendy himself]]. In-universe, [[Blog/SeekingTruth Zeke Strahm]] requests for all of the SlenderMan blogs that the readers know about to be given to him, so he can figure out Slendy's weaknesses.
