Self-explanatory. I'm surprised no one has put this up yet.

I'm pretty sure that most MMORPGs are dead give aways. Other than that, these are the games I found to be most addicting:

Super Monkey Ball 2- This is pretty much the most addicting console game I've ever played. Weird environments, never the same concept twice. So much great multiplayer action, like dogfight and monkey gun.

Animal Crossing- I spent so many hours trying to pay back Tom Nook : (

007 Goldeneye- Best multiplayer FPS ever.

Heliattack3. So addicting, in fact, that I played until I beat my score of 200. I now have a record of 342 kills with over 20,000,000 points, but the shockwave.com high score thingy wasn't working when I went to submit it. I have proof for anybody interested.

Other than that, NBA Street Vol3 is pretty addicting, as is Diablo II.

I find Diablo and MK games to be addiscting. I have hard time putting them down once I pick them up.

Katamari Damacy.

I hated this game when my husband's best man brought it home right before the wedding. It seemed weird and random with annoying music and difficult controls.

Now, scarcely a day goes by that I don't play it. The controls are intuitive once you get the hang of them, I love the music, and...this is one of the best games ever.

Helliattack 3, Katamari Damanci, and pretty much everything already mentioned are all plenty addicting, but they're nothing compared to GUNBOUND. Man I love that game.

Oh, and Warioware. Gotta love Warioware.

Bishi Bashi Special for the PS1. It's about 200 or so hilarious mini-games in one. I particularly like the one where you copy the way the on-screen lights flash on your controller to make your character's afro grow. Not alot of people have played it, but I'd imagine it to be a great 'post-pub' game - I've had it for about five, maybe six years now, and I'll still play a few games whilst I'm heating some food or running a bath.

First and foremost, Tetris. 'Nuff said.

Secondly, for some reason, I'm horribly addicted to LOZ, OOT. I must have played that game at least 15 times by now. The cartrige has eaten my soul. pinch.gif

And finaly, Gladius, for the GC. I played that game into the wee hours of the night while at my boyfriend's place. I think he was beginning to regret ever showing it to me. What can I say, I just can't resist smiting people, especialy in a game where you can play as a powerful nordic woman.

Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance
Tetris (if you're good)
Donkey Kong (GB)

I can't quite think of any other really good examples, but they're usually those games that are not to difficult, but provide sufficient challenge to actually reach very high on the 'fun' value. Then they have to be able to keep going, and going, and going...

Plus, 101 levels of sheer ape-chasing always helps. (DKGB)

Tetris wins, but I'll give honorable mentions to Katamari Damacy, Lumines, Civilization II, Ape Escape, Super Monkey Ball, and WINDJAMMERS.

Oh, and I dunno what's up with your sudden fascination with DK '94, GMH, but it's an awesome game. I still remember that damn Iceberg stage that had an elementary-school laszlow frustrated for months.

Katamari Damacy (and likely its upcoming sequel), Animal Crossing, Tetris, almost the entire Harvest Moon series and the Super Monkey Balls are givens. However, the most addictive games of all time, in my opinion, are:

- Ms. Pac-Man
- Pac-Man
- Centipede
- Space Invaders
(All arcade versions, though the Atari 2600 port of Space Invaders is quite good)

I could literally play any of those four games forever and not become tired out (well, other than for that stupid 'sleeping' thing, which I'd probably have to do every once in a while). Sadly, only one arcade 'round here still has Centipede and Pac-Man (that I know of), so most of the time the only way to enjoy those and the other two is to pop in the less-than-awesome Atari ports.

Edit
Not to be a grammar 'n' spelling Nazi, but I thought I should just point this out: The word you're looking for is "addictive", not "addicting". "Addicting" is a verb, indicating the act of becoming dependent on something; "addictive" is an adjective, one that describes something you're addicted to like the video games we're discussing. My apologies - I just saw the improper term used in most of the posts and kinda snapped. Arrgh, I'm becoming what I hate! Feel free to ignore this li'l insignificant message if you wish. smile.gif

I believe Tetris is the game I have stuck with the most over the years. At this point, I can regularly go 300+ lines (I try doing nothing but tetrises to try and keep up the challenge level).

More recently, though, I've really gotten into FFT. When I first got it, I played it for 2 months straight, starting over like 5 or 6 times, heh.

Wario Ware. I've never played the second one, but the first sucks up my life.

Also Tetris Attack.

WoW is still game even if it is an MMORPG.

But I'd have to say WarioWare, Diablo, Animal Crossing, Donkey Kong: Jungle Beat, Halo 2, Advance Wars, and Super Castlevania 4 (most any Castlevania game for that matter).

Actually, I agree with this. I beat the one for g/c in a few days, with getting all the badges and star pieces and everything. I just couldn't stop playing, and I don't know why.

I forgot that game when I posted earlier. I'm sure there are others I forgot, too. tongue.gif

Bomberman. It's fun, time-consuming, and you keep trying to get the high-score. I've never beat the original for the Megadrive yet, and ive played it hundreds of times!

There was a time when I was spending every spare moment playing Super Smash Bros. I'd make random teams to combat me under secret pretenses. I'd play ever character under ever possible combat situation. If you take a look at the statistics for my cartridge you might be somewhat appalled. I guarentee your top games played isn't in the same order of magnitude as my Jigglypuff has by himself.

I played it alot.
