1. World of Warcraft - PC Games

I have an addictive personality, though I know my limits. And being an RPG fan, a hardcore gamer, and a Warcraft fanatic, I knew better than to fall for their Free 10-day Trial bullshit!

Oh my god, how many souls have I ruined by adding that hyperlink?? Better add this one below to redeem myself.

2. Tetris - Famicom and NES

Yes, I'm one of the many folks who used to dream about those damn falling blocks. I even had daydreams of them while at work seminars and meetings! Had to cut myself off cold turkey to break this addiction.

4. Everquest - PC Games
EverQuest or EverCrack?
Special CBS News Report
"He stopped trying because it was easier to move on in the game than it was in real life," says Wooley. The last time he logged onto Everquest was 6 a.m. Someone heard the shot around 11. When I found him he was sitting at the computer with Everquest on and that's where he killed himself."

Never was interested in this MMORPG, but I've heard all the horror stories. The blonde elf is one sweet EILF though ;)

5. Super Mario Bros. 3 - Famicom and NES

Oh, how many times did I replay this game over and over and over again to find every whistle and P-Wing? I took a 8 year hiatus from playing this game, and I still remembered turn into a racoon, drop behind the white block, run full speed in the background to the end, you get a the whistle. How was Nintendo able to permanently engrave this info deep within my memory, when I seem to forget things like my parents birthdays?

6. Sid Meier's Civilization III - PC Games
Your recovery is only 12 steps away.

Oh, the sleepless nights, playing this game with insane one more turn mentality, until I could barely hold the mouse, eyes glazed, and sun coming up at the break of dawn. And that was on workdays! I even played this game discreetly a whole week while at work!

Curse you, Sid Meier!!

7. StarCraft - PC Games

Yes, people in Korea go ape-shit over StarCraft tournaments held even to this day, on this 10 year old game. Luckily, I never allowed this addiction to cement into me. Seen too many friends lose their soul to this RTS.

9. Diablo II - PC Games

Never got into Diablo. Seeing how it transformed my friends was enough .

10. Bejeweled - PC Games

Bejeweled + WoW = World's Most Addictive Game
It would be funny, if only it weren't so TRUE. Shocking! Why??? Isn't one addiction enough?
Prelude's rating:


Some games are as addictive as crack cocaine. Here's some of the worst offenders. Play them at your own risk! You've been warned.

List is somewhat unsorted, but the top 3 are generally considered by the masses (and myself) as the top 3 most addictive games ever created.

world of warcraft is obviously #1 especially since new expansion
Posted: 6 years ago at Feb 6 17:01
One small update - replaced Civ IV with Civ III. The 3rd title was most addictive, IMHO. Civ IV had so many bugs early on (including instant Crash-to-Desktop ones), and the end game slowed down to an unbearable crawl especially on huge maps, that it helped break some of the addiction for me.
Posted: 6 years ago at Feb 6 17:02
And Sims was definitely more addictive than Sims 2. In the 2nd one, your sims will eventually die, which helps players realize that life is short and they should get up and stop playing. ;)

i like that list. and i've got a friend who's almost to the point of the guy in that World of Warcraft pic.

Nicotine and heroin are more addictive :)
Posted: 6 years ago at Feb 12 12:54
Nicotine? bullshit.. borrowing that famous line from half baked (tho in movie, quote applied to weed)... 'I sucked a cock for some crack. Did you ever suck cock for a cigarette?'
Posted: 6 years ago at Feb 12 13:50
@nimimerkillinen Haven't played Nicotine and Heroin myself, but take your word for it, was that on the Gamecube or SNES?
Posted: 6 years ago at Feb 28 8:36
Only ever played Tetris from this list, and then I only played it in two hours increments or so before I got bored with it.
Posted: 6 years ago at Feb 28 8:39
Oh wait I also played mario 3, but I always got pushed off by someone else wanting to play.

But, for now, I'm not so addicted, so I'm ditching classes or friends :P I've kept it on a low level, for now :D
Posted: 5 years, 2 months ago at Dec 26 18:33
I know what you mean about the addictive personality. That's why I've subconsciouly avoided getting into games labelled like this.

That WoW is so addictive for everyone is a myth.
Posted: 3 years, 8 months ago at Jun 19 19:10
That's not true WOW can be very addictive depending on what you like to do inside of the game. Is it like crack, well that's an exaggeration.
