Top Ten Most Addictive Video Games

The Top Ten
1 World of Warcraft World of Warcraft Product Image

This should be number 1 without a doubt. Tetris? Really... I highly doubt that Tetris can ruin relationships and drain months and months and even years out of someones life. WoW basically ruined my highschool life, I'm glad I quit before senior year or else I think I would have gone through depression.

Played this game for YEARS of my life. From when I was 7 until I was 16, I had no bills to pay and no responsibility aside from school.. Thank god I didn't have a job and responsibility or a girlfriend, they all would've been lost this game NEEDS to be #1 on this list.

Hands down the most addictive game I have ever played, and I have played most of the games on this list. Allot of the people that voted probably have no idea just how addictive WoW really is as they haven't experienced it before.

I could be wrong, but I think this is the only game on this list that is known to destroy relationships and drain months or years out of people's lives on a regular basis.
And you have to keep paying for it every month!

2 Super Smash Bros. Super Smash Bros. Product Image

The Super Smash Bros franchise, in my opinion, isn't addictive, but those are still very good games and fun to play. The only thing I can consider as addictive might be the story mode in Melee and Brawl, but if you play in singleplayer, besides that, it's not really addictive.

I'm in love with this game! It's so insanely time consuming and once, I went through the whole story mode in one shot! Took me nine hours, but I just couldn't stop playing! This game has consumed me.

Using different characters on different maps, Using Mr Game & Watch to smash mario into oblivion whats not to love?

This and Minecraft are a tie for me. They are both so awesome in my opinion

3 Tetris

Yes, but it's not original as you say. This is rip off of original tetris, but nobody noitced original tetris, becauce it was made in Soviet Union. Americans made a rip off & get much money on it (americans stole much things, like state "New Mexico" from Mexica).

Author of original tetris was must tell about it, to get americans to prison, but he don't made that :'(.

Tetris is a digital skinner box precision-designed by evil Russian scientists to prod your psychological buttons and rot your brain.

"I'll do better next time," you vow as a line piece fails to hit its mark. But those damn tetraminoes always win eventually. THERE'S NO STOPPING THEM!

I loved Tetris when I was a kid but what the hell! I still love playing it. Me and my friends still love this contagious game. Tetris rules for many years

I have spent way too much time playing tetris that it's sort of embarrassing, I think I'm genuinely addicted.

4 Super Mario Bros. Super Mario Bros. Product Image
5 Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Product Image

Could have been considered addictive previously, since it was the first most accomplished and accurate modern warfare game of its time and it fitted in to the countries political mood during the time it was released. But if you were to play it for the first time now, then you'd probably put the game down quicker.

6,174,000 the number of possible Create-A-Class combinations, not even counting overkill. Addicting is an understatement

I know a kid who's parents let him skip every Monday of the school year to play it

Really? 49?! Don't you think that you have to remove the 4 behind the 9?

6 Minecraft Minecraft Product Image

Really great but it can cause bad affects on children such as decrease of creativity, addiction, selfishness, vitamin D decrease, and much more. It makes kids less smart because everyone thinks it enhances creativity which is true but it doesn't encourage kids to use there hands and it decreases active hand use and decreases mental strength. My co-worker's kid became really addicted to Minecraft and made him less selfish and when he was doing Lego with his friend he didn't do it the normal way he got a computer mouse and started clicking on it he didn't use his own hands. The kid's creativity decreased and whenever he plays building blocks or Lego he gets a computer mouse and starts clicking. My co-worker was really shocked

Your mom threw out your computer. Don't worry kiddo! You can get it on PS3, Xbox 360, PS4, Xbox One, and Pocket Edition! Have fun as Minecraft takes over your life 1 glass block at a time! To be honest this game is amazing. You CHOOSE what YOU want to do. From building a huge city with villagers to making fortresses and fighting off your friends/monsters, the possibilities are endless! You can start unorganized PVP by going on PE and using the "old generation" feature to make a scaled world with boundaries (Or add them in PC) and then you split up to survive (In peaceful) while growing weapons and attacking each other. That's 1 thing I really like to do! There are many custom maps and mini games to play. Not only that but you can make your own! Minecraft, should be called DoWhatEverYouWantCraft

Guys if you think Minecraft isn't good. Then first play it and continue playing it until you know the game. don't simply be like Minecraft is the worst game ever. And if you think graphics isn't good in Minecraft as of this generation. The answer is yes Minecraft doesn't have a good graphic but remember graphics doesn't make a game and it is good because of this graphics. If you don't play it then don't say Minecraft isn't good, because you don't know anything about the game. And there are tons of people who like this game.

You can literally do anything in this game. It's so cool. You wont understand this game when you play for the first time just keep playing and then you will understand this game. This I guess also helps you learn something about resources and stuffs. You might not like to play single player but multiplayer is the best. 26.95 US $ is worth it. I recommend that you play this game before its too late nvm this if your already playing.

Actually I played it for a short time and then I got bored...

12 Mortal Kombat Mortal Kombat  Product Image
13 Petz Nursery Petz Nursery Product Image
14 The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Product Image

I only voted this because I believe it should be second but not first I played both skyrim and Minecraft and ill be honest I find it very hard to get hooked on a game and I was playing this game none stop for 6 months at a point but Minecraft deserves first place I've been playing it for a year and I've barely scratched the service I still havn't made my own server and played with local friends, still want to try a prison server, at one point I want to make my own adventure map (as soon as I figure out where to find my saved worlds :) ) so basically Minecraft deserves number one and skyrim should be number two

I was going to vote World of warcraft but you don't need an internet connection for Skyrim so I could see people getting more addicted to this game. I was so addicted to this game I played it forover a week straight most of the day tell I beat the game now I haven't touched it since

I hate it because of how addicting it is. Just kidding this game is a masterpiece. I would sit down and play expecting to stop in maybe an hour and in a flash, the entire day is gone. I never play that much in any other game.

I'm sorry, can someone please explain why something like Minecraft, Angry Birds, or Tetris even be on this list? We're talking about addiction, not a way to kill some time. This game will destroy your life. Especially if you haven't been able to play it for the last 6 months like me. :(

15 Wii Sports Wii Sports Product Image

It's an addictive and fun game, it shows off what the Wii can do with the motion controls!

Only addictive if you are with people. If you are alone, it's not really addictive.

Gonna have to vote on this one. Very Addictive and love to play with friends

Each time I play this game its like 2 hours it's that addicting

16 Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Product Image

Quite possibly the best game ever! The game world is huge. There are over 100 main story line missions. There are hundreds of different vehicle types including many planes and helicopters. There are so many different side missions/quests that it seems that you can never run out of interesting things to do.

When I play it I gone into the forest of country side

When I was young, I was so addicted to it.

Wanna know about addiction? Play it!

17 Team Fortress 2 Team Fortress 2 Product Image

I didn't want to stop playing this game! I eventually quit it after playing. 80 hours in just 2 months.

Good game, But sadly a lot of P2P making fun of F2P's for not spending a penny on the game.

I've lost so much of my life to this game. And you know what? It was awesome!

I used to play this game so much; sad that it's dying out.

18 Nyan Cat: Lost In Space

This game's about as addictive as the song is.

19 Dead Space Dead Space Product Image

Kill necromorphs it's really fun.

20 Counter-Strike Counter-Strike Product Image

There is no doubt that counter strike is the most addictive video game around the world if you just go to a website like or something like that that consists all kind of games you can easy see which game is mostly played.

There are a lot of reasons that the game is one of the most addictive game in the world it is been mentioned in my school books, as a game is very addictive to young people... There is another reason the fact that it is made up in 2003 and it is still being played by young and adult people around the world.

Most popular multiple player's game ever.

21 Halo: Combat Evolved Halo: Combat Evolved Product Image
