Top Ten Most Addictive Video Games

The Top Ten Most Addictive Video Games

1 World of Warcraft

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.

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!

It ruins lives! I'm surprised people pay to play this because it's a job. It really does drain your money and relationships. Why isn't this #1 on the list!? It caused fights between me and my ex and destroyed my GPA in college.

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.

2 Tetris

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

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! - jamesslater

I've been playing Tetris for about a year now. I'm currently seeing tetrominoes in my sleep. I'm trying to go to sleep and then, whoah, LINE PIECE! where do I put it? What now? NO! SQUIGGLY! what to do, what to do? IT goes on and and on and on and on and on and on it'll never stop!

This is way more addictive then Minecraft

3 Super Smash Bros.

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?

So addicting! Provides hundreds of hours of playtime for the owner.

Best game, awesome soundtrack, good storyline and epic multi-player.

4 Super Mario Bros.


5 Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare

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 - TotalBeast93

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

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

6 Minecraft

This is a very addictive game when u get into it. But it needs way more. - BloodFang

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

Everyone who plays minecraft absolutely hates it when they first. It doesn't make any sense (whoa a bunch of blocks who cares?!? ). However, a few months later they experience a change of heart and somehow become obsessed. I've been playing for two years and still play everyday!

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.

7 Grand Theft Auto IV

Dammit! I have lost it and I feel so bored. I feel empty!

Better graphics than liberty city

Cousin! Let's go bowling!

Bad language but fun

8 Angry Birds

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

Only addictive if you can beat the level you play. Instead, you just never play this game. - MaxPap

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

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. - Zeebs

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

Seriously? I have to add this to the list. Number 1. What other game can people say I have 100+ hrs playtime and are ready to rack up hundreds more? None.

This game makes me an unproductive person. I will sit down for hours doing dlc quests, and exploring caves.

15 Wii Sports

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

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

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

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

16 Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

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.

Very addictive game

17 Team Fortress 2

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

This game is like a drug I tell ya

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. - Danganronpa

18 Nyan Cat: Lost In Space

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

19 Counter-Strike

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.

20 Dead Space
21 Halo: Combat Evolved

What how is this not in the top ten I play this everyday even in 2013 I bring it to school on a flash drive and a bunch of us just play halo during 3rd period tech

That's impossible for a game like that to be bought to school, I know. Cause a classmate I know of was suspended for 3 months for sneaking into the Library Xbox 360 playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. - Mumbizz01

Boss ass hell and should be a top

Fun to play online or with friends sometimes. But not addictive (I'm not putting 10 hours a day on this game, you know) - MaxPap

45 Call of Duty: Black Ops II

The multi player is very addictive

Everyone talks about itr

46 Cookie Clicker

It's because of the vast amount of cookies producted and all the stuff you can buy. To break the addiction, keep playing until it's hard to buy stuff. You will slowly lose interest.

So fun and addictive - PeeledBanana

I don't know why... - kennywilliams21

I have 346.118 billion CPS and 6.3 quintillion cookies baked this game. So, yeah. Right. - Persian
