Any game on the Xbox360 is hard to put down , on the other side PS3 games are a snore fest :/

Japanese should move on and make toys and leave gaming to us Americans , everything we make are masterpieces.

My own personal list is:

Roller Coaster Tycoon (2): It's like LEGOS; once you start building, its hard to stop. Thousands upon thousands of user-made content (new sceneries, rides, etc.) helps it never get stale.

Microsoft Flight Simulator: Once you sink in the hours required to learn it, it is very fun trying new routes/planes. User-made extra content (planes, scenery) also adds TONS to the vanilla gameplay. Also, unless you want a bunch of half-finished flights under your belt, you can't put it down until the flight is over (which can range from 10 minutes to 15 hours)!

Assassin's Creed 2: Yeah, it may not have much replayability or reason to play once the story is over... But the story... wow. Assassin's Creed 2 is the first time in a while that I've put in 7+ hour sessions in a single player game. Last time was at the launch of GTA IV.

And finally, what I'm playing right now; Europa Universalis III: It's like Risk, but hardcore and based within the context of history. I chalk this one up to the incredibly slow pace of the game (which is fine, seeing as it spans over 500+ years). In 2 hours of play I had managed simply to annex one territory and vassalize my puny neighbor, Granada. Like Flight Sim, it is a fairly complex game, so you will have bonded with it somewhat by the time you get the hang of it; and once you know how to play properly, its great fun altering history or taking some random 1 province German city-state and turning it into an empire. Who doesn't love conquering the world?

Well that's my list. All either games that I became "addicted to" (Like AC2) for a short amount of time, or that I have put thousands of hours in. There is much more I could list, but these are the highlights, the best of the best, what has made gaming "gaming" for me.

Its an ok article but it's missing one game. DIABLO 2! Like, come on, it is without a doubt the most addictive game ever made. How can anyone omit it in a list?!?

lol, why did i get a disagree?

raztad3706d ago

Because there are a bunch of morons in this site that know better than you what games you love and cant put down.

Ontopic: Regardless how much I love a game it's hard for me to put more than 30 hours on it, or even less. I have a huge backlog of almost finished games.

So far MAG has proven to be one of the most addictive games I came across. Demons Souls was really addictive as well. GoW1&2 and RE4 got me playing till the end.

nfs3 demo was something i remember playing again n again. tetris, yes. pacman, mario. right now quadrapop is something i keep playing on my mobile. diablo 2 was something i couldnt put until finished it. okami too. i also kept playing PES08/09 demo for the last two years. the card games in windows. KZ2 mp. warhawk. now it's demon's souls.

Unicron3706d ago

Right now for me its God of War collection. I find those two games very addictive. Good balance of traversal and puzzles and combat and set pieces. I always want to play just a LITTLE bit more...

Gambit073706d ago

Yup, excellent level design.

mistajeff3706d ago

I know what you mean.. "oh, that next save point can't be THAT far away.."

freediro3706d ago (Edited 3706d ago )

GOW's (absolute favorite, so elated for GOW III)
Pokemon Red and Blue (spent countless hours of my childhood with this game)
Golden Eye
Uncharted 2
Super Mario Brothers (SNES)
Super Smash Borthers (N64)
GTA Vice City (some great memories from years with this game!)
Major League Baseball Featuring Ken Griffey Jr (N64, best baseball game ever imo)
KOTOR's (right behind GOW for all time favorite, purely amazing!)

it's always nice to find that game that no matter what anyone rates or says about it, it will always be your favorite game.
