The Most Addicting Games Of The Past Decade

GR writes: "Their mere mention evokes thoughts of days spent glued to the screen, weeks that disappeared in the blink of an eye; in other words, games that behold an unprecedented amount of value. So which games fall under this umbrella?"

World of Warcraft FOR SURE.

I've never tried it for this exact reason.

Lol thats exactly why I never played it, too!

On topic: I have to disagree with Skyrim. Oblivion sucked more life out of me than any other game. Dark souls is a close second.

As much as I despise it now, it definitely was addicting. Sadly, speaking from experience, I missed a lot of years of good games to WoW. Never again will I get attached to an MMO like I did with WoW. Should of learned my lesson with DAoC.

Double post :/

The lack of a comment "delete" option is stupid...

Not true, i always thought that Everquest was way more addicting than WoW. Wow was always bland and meh to me.

Xristo1290d ago (Edited 1290d ago )

Everquest(crack) definitely initially set the standard for MMO addictions. It is just not spoke about (as much) due to the popularity in comparison to WoW. Even though it had the highest population in any MMO ever before WoW.

Evercrack was CRAZY addictive; way more addictive than WoW imo.

EQ was before WoW's instanced events.

I still remember heading into a zone calling for a camp check, people sending what time they'll be finished, and then setting my alarm clock and taking a nap to rest up before my time at the camp.

Or worse, the empty bottle shuffle when nature calls when in the middle of a camp.

That's the night I quit cold turkey. Still miss those EQ days, especially now that they have the official rolled-backed old school servers up. I'll never go back to that dark place again though. lol

But this gen's addictive game for me was Demon's Souls. That game had me.

Out of all the games I've played since nes...I'd have to go with pokemon, oblivion, skyrim, fallout 3, fo:nv, borderlands 1 and 2. These Rpgs wasn't really until this gen excluding pokemon where I sunk over 100 hours of play time into and multiple playthroughs with these games Bethesda and Gearbox make... They are crack in the form of video games. Because of skyrim I've missed work,school,and time with my girl (now ex). I can't really say that about any other game.

Civilization games are like, hazardous to my health, man.

dasbeer881290d ago

Try League of Legends. An average match would last about 45-50 minutes. I've played over 1K matches and I'll bet that'll sum up about 700 hours.

Norrison1289d ago

A Civ 5 campaign can take you more than 24 hours

doctorstrange1290d ago

I've put a dangerous amount of time into the Total War series.

dbjj120881290d ago

I go through short spurts of addiction. Games usually don't hold my attention for much longer than 100 hours.

I can't stop playing Playstation all stars. Had the same wonderful issue with smash bros when I was younger.
