The Most Addictive Game Poll!

Well? It's not "official" or anything, and the choices are a bit disparate, just thought it'd be a bit of "fun".

Seeing as there is no Championship Manager/Football Manager or online COD4 I will vote for Tetris.......

In terms of addictiveness my vote goes to Tetris out of that lot. Although I've now just about had my fill of it after the best part of twenty years. For the most addictive of all, I'd have to give mention to Sensible Soccer, Championship/Football Manager, Peggle and Picross DS. OutRun Online Arcade also recently reminded me of the addictiveness of OutRun 2 and its flock. Ooh, and Super Mario Kart and Call Of... I'm gonna be here all night at this rate. Tetris it is.

I've played tetris on one handheld or another (game boy, mobile phone, iphone, ds) plus on desktop computers more than any other game over the last twenty(ish) years. It's kinda worrying ...

Seen as though it's just got a release on PSN today (3 years after the 360 version lol) I have to say Bejeweled 2...maybe. I do love it and much prefer it to tetris.

Out of your list however it would have to be GTA and Vice City on PS2, this one had me hooked good and proper when I went on a mission to get 100% completion. Top game.

I would guess that Champonship/Football Manager is possibly the most addictive game of all time.

MMOs must surely come second

As no shmup (normally tons of replay value and addiction for score) has being mentioned, Tetris'll do it for me.

GTA for sure, though its gimmick has started to wear off on me after IV.

EDIT: Personally I don't find much of the rest of games on the list very addictive though. I guess if you count Counter Strike under the UT category, that would probably be first.

Got to be Tetris for me....remember linking up with my bro in law and having some really epic 2 player matches on the original gameboy....... :D and remembering the first time i got the space shuttle on level 9-5.......and seeing blocks dropping when i'd got my eyes shut :shock:


Perfect in its simplicity and execution.

But it's only the online multiplayer that I find addictive, the single player game is superb but I don't want to play it every day.......

There is no possibly about it, they should come with a health warning :D I have known mates who have had to throw the game away and delete it from their system such was the amount of time they were playing it. I have also read stories of them being mentioned in divorce proceedings !!!

Surely the gaming equivalent of crack cocaine ( not that I smoke crack )...........
