Addictive games?

Post by crotea » Wed Dec 04, 2013 4:54 pm

What are the games you've gotten addicted to in the past years? Haven't got really involved with a game in some time now, and I just want to play something without getting bored so quickly. I hope this isn't a sign of losing interest in games, although I do talk about them a lot :)

Get yourself over to and get RollerCoaster Tycoon 2, you'll never be bored again :D

I'd say probably football manager for the past 7 years.

Kevin Toms wasn't lying when he picked the company name.

This may be a subjective thing but Assassins Creed 2 almost cost me a degree. I was chasing those damn feathers till the morning of one of my exams.

Civilization. The first, and best, one.

Man, I lost months to that on the Amiga.

Any RPG/Adventure with a decent story would get me hooked. Otherwise SImCity/SC2000, Theme Park and Unirally were time holes for me.

Any disgaea game. The yakuza games have all had major hours put into them, same with assassins creed. Dragon quest 8 has been upward of three hundred hours as well.
