These games are so addictive that GameDaily almost didn't finish this article. Damn you, Peggle.
Killer Instinct GOLD and marvel Vs capcom was my most addicting games ever oh and starcraft too lol
Bloodmask slapping F5 on Gamedaily again... -_-
gta4 is not addictive san andreas was wayyyy more cod 4 should be in top 3 and the classics always win, but i dont think they cut it any more well some doo pacMAn!!!
I just started coming down off my rockstar and MGO induced high last month. i logged over 900 hours on that game. Best online game ever IMO. Though i may be a little bias, cuz the first online game i ever played was mgo 1, and that had me addicted till they shut down the servers a year later. Plus I'm a huge MGS fan (who isn't though) And now with the MEME expansion... I'm wishing I had a rockstar membership discount card.
Im with: 24. 21. 17. 15. 14. 12. 11. 5. 3.
There should only be one, and ONLY one criteria for the top 25 most addictive games of all time. Did it actually killed people and ruined lives. With that in mind its... 1. Everquest 2. Counterstrike 3. WoW 4. Doom Everything else on this list need to be tossed out.
Way too much fail to even care about this list let alone take it seriously.
Pretty poor list. Leaving out Civilization already makes this list have no credibility whatsoever. Gears of War 2? Fallout 3? Really? I've stopped playing Fallout 3. lol Solitaire? Addictive? People playing hours playing SOLITAIRE? Huh? Apparently, no MMOs existed before World of Warcraft, of course. What happened to the original Everquest? Where's Rogue/Hack/Moria?! Pokemon, anyone? The fact there's only 2 games before 1994 tells you all you need to know.
Fallout 3 and Gears of War 2 should Not be on this list in my opinion. These are games that recently launched. In Fact any Game released this year should not be on that list. We dont know how addictive these games are until it has passed the test of Time. Halo 3 for example should be on that list, it has released about a year ago, and even after a year, people still play it. Other than that, its another fail from Gamedaily.
Highly questionable and debatable list. Specially them putting GTA4 on there after writing a article about why GTA4 is stale after 2 weeks when they gave the game a 10. San Andreas was much more addictive. Sure they have some token games on there but for my money Super Mario World was THE most addictive Mario game. Also no Galaga?
they put half of the list current gen and mostly xbox360... rofl diablo anyone heroes of might and magic? fallout 1-2 were way more fun than the 3rd though fallout 3 is still great... seems some total noob wrote this.. also rome total war series? pro evo anyone and he didnt even put pacman. Helo 3 and gears might be great and everything but addictive or even most addictive, no chance. he didnt mention any ff game they were pretty addictive. baldurs gate,battle toads, contra... list goes on..
agreed with diablo, d2 especially!
Where is Phantasy Star Online? Or Monster Hunter?
what a waste of time....
No OoT? Mo..Oh I cannot be arsed the list is full of fail(Gear2? Fallout3 without the infinitely more addictive 1&2?) I'm only interested mildly in Oblivion, Pac Man and COD4 on it(pacMan took ALL my money as a wee nipper).
im not even gonna bother going through that list, 25 times to click for each one, how fuc*ing hard is it to put them onto one page, i am never going on that sh** website again
Where the heck is Pokemon? Yes I said Pokemon, I have wasted hours of my life playing those games.
I would go for starcraft.
Where are the Burnout games???????????????????
based on ADDICTION I think it only right that The SIMS is there. My personal addictions were Simcity 2000 or 3000 and Guild Wars
List is complete fail without Resistance 2. The fact that Resistance 2 has stat-tracking and XP earning that are conjoined for all 3 modes of the game, and leveling up in the co-op and competitive modes that unlock new berserks, equipment, and weapons, makes playing the game so unbelievably addictive. Then there's the overall ranking that you can increase by playing any of the 3 modes including the campaign, and the campaign has a mirror-mode that makes it fresh to play through after you've done it regularly a few times, and new modes like arcade mode keep me going back for more. All 3 modes are addictive in their own ways, and combined they make for a package that is easily more addictive than a lot of the games on the list. For one thing, they say Gears 2 is addictive because of Horde mode, well what the hell about R2's co-op mode, which has class-based and objective-based gameplay, with the leveling up that unlocks new features for you to play with, it makes for a far more addictive and compelling experience. I got bored with Horde very quickly. The competitive multiplayer in Gears 2 is fantastic, but I thought Horde was pretty conventional and boring. Yay, we stand around and kill enemies in waves. That's it? No XP-based leveling up, unlockables, class-based experience at all? Give me a break. Resistance 2 absolutely trumps it in terms of addictiveness.
They did`nt call it EverCrack for nothing...
more overly opinionated articles from gameFAILy GTA IV gets boring after a week, Burnout 3 >>>>>>> Burnout Paradise, Madden 09 is far from the best Madden (or football) game, Geometry wars is very shallow (you can get through all of the modes in like 2 days), Animal crossing shouldn't even be on a top 100 most addictinve list(yes, i have actually played this), COD4 should be in top 10 atleast, and counter-strike is too high
halo /2 /3 cs / source team fortress / tf2 / neo tf wow guitar hero/rock band everquest tetris
This list is a disgraceful failure
while I have played about 90% of those and agree with about 70% of them but the Socom series is missing, especially part 2, the game was crack, there is still ppl playing it and I personally played thousands of hours.
