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.

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.

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 ;)

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?

CIVILIZATION ANONYMOUS - No More Turns
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!!

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.

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?

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.
