Most Addicting Video Games of the 90s


The Top Ten

1 Super Smash Bros.

What better way to fight your friends than to duke it out in this addicting fighting game. - cjWriter1997

2 Chrono Trigger

One of the best JRPGs. Gameplay is addictive and it has a lot of replay ability. - cjWriter1997

3 Streets of Rage

This has been a Mega Drive favourite of mine for ages. Especially for a game of its time it plays wonderfully and the music is amongst the best to appear in a video game to this day. - Entranced98

Fantastic beat em up and the gameplay is as addicting as it gets. - cjWriter1997

4 Doom
5 Sonic the Hedgehog 2

Plus it introduced Tails, who deserves more credit and must reclaim his position of second most popular Sonic character from Shadow.

Still one of the best Sonic games ever made - I'm sure we're all wishing Sega had always kept the series at this gold standard. - Entranced98

I prefer sonic 3 and k but 2 is definitely my favorite to speed run due to its relatively short length. - Heatnix23

I love this game - TwilightKitsune

6 Mortal Kombat Trilogy

What can I say? It's Mortal Kombat. - cjWriter1997

8 Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest

A SNES classic. Platforming perfection and addictive fun. - cjWriter1997

9 Twisted Metal 2

Super fun racing game that has some of the most addicting gameplay to come from the genre. - cjWriter1997

The Contenders

11 Super Mario World
12 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
