TheThrills4Life  +   1860d ago
Starcraft 2 should have been #1. That game is absolutely amazing.
DivideBYZero  +   1860d ago
I played that game till 4am in the morning the day I got it, and I had to be at work at 7am.
mrv321  +   1860d ago
Clearly you should have phone in sick and kept playing Starcraft 2.

In Korea the release of Starcraft 2 was a HOLIDAY so not too many people would lose work.

Korea... :P
Darkstorn  +   1860d ago
I find Demon's Souls highly addictive as well. I just can't get that game out of my head for some reason...
LastDance  +   1860d ago
Darkstorn the people that disagreed with you havent played it
Conloles  +   1860d ago
TheThrills4Life is too true
Panthers  +   1859d ago
LOL I am hating myself for not playing much over the past 2 days. I need to get back on track and shoot for the diamond league.
RedDead  +   1859d ago
Jurassic park Operation Genesis

lol I know, the first time I played that as a kid I accidently stayed up till 6am, I looked at my watch and wondered where the hell the time went, I then released the dinosaurs and they caused havoc :)
danmachine  +   1859d ago

Stoneroses6300  +   1860d ago
That game is amazing.
JDPGamer2002  +   1860d ago
Haven't played it yet, but I am dying to.
chazjamie  +   1859d ago
i am glad i aint a nintendo or pc gamer. why would anyone be proud to be addicted to a game?


what the comments going to say: well i know what you guys mean, i could really use some powder, but dont wanna disappoint the fam.


god i miss it so much, its supposedly more addictive than WOW. seriously whats the difference between the two? none man, the doctors said so.

Darkfiber  +   1860d ago
Yeah it's so awesome I got bored of it 10 years before it even came out.
Panthers  +   1859d ago
If your suggesting that this game is just like SC1 then you have not explored the depth of it. Small changes made this a much different game, yet at its core its still very much Starcraft, which is what EVERYONE wanted. Why change one of the best and longest lasting games of all time? I mean when a game still has a huge online following 12 years after release, you know you are doing something right.
Daver  +   1859d ago

small changes still are small changes, thats not making a different game that much...
why changes? because starcraft 1 has been played for more than 10 years and still being played so why not something more fresh? it took them 12 years to make a game that is WAY too similar to the first 1. Buildings are the same units are the same, races are the same, even if they added few more new things it is still too much like the 1st one.
Calm Down Sunshine  +   1859d ago
Especially the custom games.
Daver  +   1859d ago
Demons souls, Diablo and Fallout 3 were very addictive.
Scrooge  +   1859d ago
After all these years I'm still addicted to Mike Tyson's Punchout. Still can't beat Iron Mike. Damn near impossible!
TheKoreanWalker  +   1860d ago
Really good list. All of these games are incredibly addicting. One suggestion would have been to add Super Bomberman 2 or Halo 2. But Tetris is definitely #1 for me.
ReporterGirl  +   1860d ago
I still prefer Halo 1 to Halo 2.
DDP  +   1860d ago
Good list. They needed to add Diablo 2 instead of Diablo 1 though. Much better game. Also, some RPGs have been really addicting also. FFVII for one.
Theflyinghumanoid  +   1860d ago
Ms. Pac-Man? I got tired of that game in 5 minutes. Its the same screen over and over again. Where's 007?
MountainMaverick  +   1860d ago
I like it. I still can play Tetris for hours.
Samus2080  +   1860d ago
Ever play Tetris Party on the Wii? 4 players at once with weird viruses. So much fun.
ClSmooth  +   1860d ago
2 player tetris = best gaming experience ever.
TheGodEmperor  +   1860d ago
Hahaha...wow...the part about world of warcraft was hilarious.
ReporterGirl  +   1860d ago
Good list, I love retro games.

BigSwede  +   1860d ago
HORRIBLE list. Where's Baldur's Gate 2? Where's Diablo 2? Where's FFVII? Where's FFX? Where's Street Fighter 2? Where's SF4? Where's any good games?
Walternate  +   1860d ago
How is it no one has mentioned any Grand Theft Auto games yet?
Volvobug  +   1860d ago
GTA4 = Most addicting and amazing game ever made!
Fanb0y  +   1860d ago
"GTA4 = Most addicting and amazing game ever made! /s"

OldWizard  +   1860d ago
Dr. Mario FTW.
rumplstilts  +   1859d ago
Wow, I am delightfully surprised to find you here. I am an avid reader and fan of your controversial site.

Also, I'd like to know what you guys thought of Starcraft 2
Danteh  +   1859d ago
I still think they should go outside and buy something called "PsOne" which I heard it haz 3D graphix or something like that
JDPGamer2002  +   1860d ago
GTA 4 should be on this list. No doubt.

Also...KILLZONE 2 anyone????
NightDweller  +   1860d ago
gta4? wtf's wrong with you.
san andreas was more addicting than that
i expected san andreas but not gta4
DDP  +   1860d ago
I hate them all.
Meowhammad  +   1859d ago
TheNecromaster  +   1860d ago
Where's Killzone 2?
Roozium  +   1860d ago
Halo 2.
CaJuaLFeatPuFF  +   1860d ago
schlanz  +   1860d ago
Smash Bros Melee ought to be on there. And Diablo 2 over Diablo.
Capt-FuzzyPants  +   1860d ago
Any civ is addicting they're so good.
Jac5al  +   1860d ago
Killzone 2 was pretty addictive I would still be playing it if their more ranks, unlocables, and etc. Clan matches were the best. Can wait for KZ3!
JohnApocalypse  +   1860d ago
I knew WOW was going to be number 1
tinydancer  +   1860d ago
I played WOW 20 hours a day when I first got it
Studio-YaMi  +   1860d ago
No pong game ?
Epic fail right there..
zeddy  +   1860d ago
has everyone forgot about football manager? i can play that game for hours upon hour without stop.
DDP  +   1860d ago
Pong sucks.
tinydancer  +   1860d ago
You did not say that
allyc4t  +   1860d ago
Doctor Mario, how did I ever forget about you?

Good list!
DDP  +   1860d ago
The part about Diablo made me lol:

"In an even more interesting twist it turns out the church was built on top of catacombs, which were built on top of caves, which were built on top of the entrance to hell. If I were the owners I would have sued not only the construction company but also the land developer, architect, and surveyor."
vampstreak  +   1860d ago
i think the most recent game i have gotten addicted to was Fallout 3, simply because there was so much to do and see. Cannot wait for Fallout: New Vegas
btmgov  +   1860d ago
This list loses all merit with that #1 selection.....
tinydancer  +   1860d ago
Are you kidding me? Have you ever played the game?
rumplstilts  +   1859d ago
Dissenters will inevitably abhor.
gamerben  +   1860d ago
I come to the chat section and immediately I see "UNCHARTED 2 METAL GEAR ZOMG". Those are very cinematic games, a game that is addicting is a game you can play for hours non-stop.

Just because a game is great doesn't mean it's addicting.
Scotland-The-Brave  +   1860d ago
Not to you maybe, it can be for other people.
vickers500  +   1860d ago
Call of Duty 2, Call of Duty 4, Gears of War 1, Warhawk, Fallout 3, Ratchet and Clank Future Tools of Destruction, and Borderlands were my addictive games this gen.
versusALL  +   1860d ago
These games are old
Scotland-The-Brave  +   1860d ago
Crash Team Racing anyone? or Bomberman?
FalconR289  +   1860d ago
Mario Kart DS with all your friend and Super Smash Bros.
McLuvn  +   1860d ago
prefer Diablo
players can o d on SC.
N4PS3Fanboys  +   1860d ago
Where's Halo 3?
PopEmUp  +   1859d ago
more like
where CS or half life
