MasonicGamer.com - Last week I posed a question – Which games do you obsess over? I talked a little about the games that had sunk their hooks into me in the past, and asked for comments telling me which ones had grabbed you. I was actually a little surprised by the results; I was expecting plenty of folks to mention online shooters and MMOs, but it seems that story is the main factor when it comes to obsession.
First of all, there were some online shooters listed (Halo being the most popular) but not a single mention of World of Warcraft or Everquest. There were also old-school classics that people remember becoming obsessed with, such as Sonic the Hedgehog, Super Mario Bros. 3, and Final Fight. Having spent many hours in my youth playing these 8 and 16-bit treasures, I wholeheartedly agree that they have addictive powers.
