    Space invaders


    Most simple games were the most addictive.

    triple town

    This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

    The only games I absolutely could not stop playing were The Legend of Zelda (NES) and the Wizardry (Sir-Tech) series.

    These are the most addicting ones for me in no particular order.

    Mortal Kombat

    Sorry- WoW shouldn't be amongst that list the OP mentioned. (like what the Street Fighter guy argued) Any of Blizzard's other games though!

    I am disappointed. I know where my quarters were disappearing in the early 80s, not one of those games the op mentioned.

    I sunk more quarters into pinball during early 80s -- and Gauntlet w friends

    Hell yes to this.  +1 . Im actually thinking of  building an  emulation arcade  in  my   home.  If only  I  could get the ol ball and  chain  to  comply  lol.

    my mistake I misread.
    Akthough not sure it's so addictive as time-intensive. But it probably is addictive if people really got a hunger to log in every day.

    If I look at my hours....


    - Counter Strike

    - Roller Coaster Tycoon

    - Sim City

    - Black and White

    - F1 2010-2012

    - Team Fortress 2


    Funnily enough I've never played any MMO for more than 220 hours since I've recorded my time in 2004. In fact I've only played EQ2 for 220hours (not including the beta) and the nearest MMO to that was WAR with 20-30...

    I know I played SWG, PS and EQ for much longer though.

    Yup - I lost entire days to this one. Start playing Thursday, look up and it's Sunday evening, I missed school on Friday, and the entire weekend is gone. Very common...

    Earlier in this thread I listed Dark Age of Camelot and Tecmo Super Bowl, and didn't list anything else. Well its time to actually put some games into it.

    1. Dark Age of Camelot

    2. Tecmo Super Bowl

    3. WcW vs NWO World Tour

    4. Mario Kart

    5.A three way tie. WcW vs NWO Revenge, Wrestlemania 2000, and WWF No Mercy 64

    6. Goldeneye

    In a world of sharp knives, you would be a spoon.
