Most Addicting Video Games of the 2010s

Just like my 2000s and 90s list, here's what I think are some of the most addicting games of the 2010s.

The Top Ten

1 The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Product Image

Ha ha, first time I started to play Skyrim it was addictive. Then started to play the mods, more addictive. Then finally gave up on trying mods and started to make my own mods with creation kit. Even more addictive than playing the mods or the vanilla version. I mean with the Bethesda creation kit you just extract the whole game into it and take a look at each quest, worldspaces, armor, texture etc. And one day I realize how much time I was wasting on a single game. - zxm

Skyrim is one of those games that people claim they've played hundreds of hundreds of hours on. Plus with the addition of mods it even adds more to the game itself, making it even more addictive. - cjWriter1997
