A list of the ten most addictive video games ever made.
Starcraft 2 should have been #1. That game is absolutely amazing.
I played that game till 4am in the morning the day I got it, and I had to be at work at 7am.
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.
I find Demon's Souls highly addictive as well. I just can't get that game out of my head for some reason...
Darkstorn the people that disagreed with you havent played it
TheThrills4Life is too true
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.
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 :)
the first time i got oblivion i played it from early afternoon to 7am in the morning. it was the first next gen and xbox 360 game i played.
That game is amazing.
Haven't played it yet, but I am dying to.
i am glad i aint a nintendo or pc gamer. why would anyone be proud to be addicted to a game? whats next: TOP TEN MOST ADDICTIVE DRUGS. coke 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. lsd. 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.
Yeah it's so awesome I got bored of it 10 years before it even came out.
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.
@Panthers 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.
Especially the custom games.
Demons souls, Diablo and Fallout 3 were very addictive.
After all these years I'm still addicted to Mike Tyson's Punchout. Still can't beat Iron Mike. Damn near impossible!
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.
I still prefer Halo 1 to Halo 2.
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.
Ms. Pac-Man? I got tired of that game in 5 minutes. Its the same screen over and over again. Where's 007?
I like it. I still can play Tetris for hours.
Ever play Tetris Party on the Wii? 4 players at once with weird viruses. So much fun.
2 player tetris = best gaming experience ever.
Hahaha...wow...the part about world of warcraft was hilarious.
Good list, I love retro games.
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?
How is it no one has mentioned any Grand Theft Auto games yet?
GTA4 = Most addicting and amazing game ever made!
"GTA4 = Most addicting and amazing game ever made! /s" Fixed.
Dr. Mario FTW.
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
I still think they should go outside and buy something called "PsOne" which I heard it haz 3D graphix or something like that
GTA 4 should be on this list. No doubt. Also...KILLZONE 2 anyone????
gta4? wtf's wrong with you. san andreas was more addicting than that i expected san andreas but not gta4
I hate them all.
GTA4, KZ2? LOL
Where's Killzone 2?
Smash Bros Melee ought to be on there. And Diablo 2 over Diablo.
Any civ is addicting they're so good.
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!
I knew WOW was going to be number 1
I played WOW 20 hours a day when I first got it
No pong game ? Epic fail right there..
has everyone forgot about football manager? i can play that game for hours upon hour without stop.
You did not say that
Doctor Mario, how did I ever forget about you? Good list!
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."
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
This list loses all merit with that #1 selection.....
Are you kidding me? Have you ever played the game?
Dissenters will inevitably abhor.
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.
Not to you maybe, it can be for other people.
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.
These games are old
Crash Team Racing anyone? or Bomberman?
Mario Kart DS with all your friend and Super Smash Bros.
players can o d on SC.
Where's Halo 3?
where CS or half life
I literally know not one person addicted to any of those except WOW. Yet i've witnessed entire relationships fall apart because of Football/Championship Manager. This post should be re-titled to "Some Guy On The Internet Finds These Games Addictive."
You do realize that people make their livings off of Starcraft. Like, professional players. I am pretty sure that game has screwed over a few people.
my list: cannon fodder magic carpet plants vs zombies call of duty 5 zombie attak level
Shin Megami Tensei Persona 3!!!!
Suoer Mario Kart Double Dash = FAIL. The original Super Mario Kart is the most addictive racing game i have ever played.
