What videogame have you most been addicted to, and why?

On the Amiga, I must've played Frontier for days on end, to-ing and fro-ing around the galaxy in search of the best trade routes, chasing bad guys and shipping folk's "private" packages between the stars.
Man, I loved that game!!

The one I can remember most is probably JNKPlat 2010. I'm not much of a gamer, and I generally don't get addicted to them.

Wow, really? I'm not THAT much of a gamer.. You've seriously never been totally hooked by a game?!

I got way too involved in playing Travian at one point recently. Come home from work and play basically until bedtime, raiding players, growing armies and growing my cities. It was all I did at one point, but there was always a need to work at it, or else equal players could grow larger and crush you.

Now I'm working on a similar kind of game...

Sensitive - C64, was one of the first puzzle games I ever played.
Creatures II - C64, the gfx were truly amazing considering the limitations of the machine (16 colour palette with only 3 colours allowed per 4x8 tile).

Check out my excellent homepage!

Xenogears. Dunno why, just hooked me-- played that game rabidly. I think it was the story.

Phantasy Star Online, I played over 400 hours on that game. At various times Return to Castle Wolfenstein (online) and Battlefield 2.

I played Unreal Tournament Assault Mode a couple hours a day almost every day for around 5 years. The only reason I stopped was because all the servers had moved on to an unofficial update, but when I installed it it broke my game.

All the raw, animal magnetism of a rutabaga.

It'd have to be a draw between two games as different as The Sims and World of Warcraft.
World of Warcraft is pretty self explanatory... they don't call it Warcrack for nothing.
As for The Sims... it feels like there was a 5 year period of my life where I did nothing but play The Sims from I came home from school till I went to bed.

I play a lot of Diablo II as well, but I don't think I've become addicted to it. Although, when I first got the expansion I played some 10 hours straight, to beat the new last act on easy, with my existing character. I didn't have anything to do that day though...

me, my brother and a friend would spend weekends playing a network game of d2:lod, when my parents went away for the weekend with my sister we would set up camp in the living room with a board on some beer crates (my brother and friend worked in a pub) 3 monitors on top and 3 pcs next to each other. We sat there for 48 hours only moving for food and nature calling.

those were the days

I have always been addicted to Lords of the Realm for Windows. That game you could just play over and over and over...

I've been addicted to pretty much every blizzard game, why? I don't know, they just create awesome games.

I remember being addicted to Benefactor on the Amiga, lost count how many days I was playing that one for.
