Most Addictive Video Games of All Time
The Top Ten
This is a very addictive game when u get into it. But it needs way more.
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
I used to love this game, but I got bored of it since there actually isn't very much substance to the game.
I am glad this is first on the list because I play it for ages and ages and ages and ages and I have never got bored of this. I do not know why more people have not voted for this because this game is really addictive and I have every single type of it, Pocket Edition, Xbox and PC, and I know a lot of people will know what I mean when I say that this IS THE BEST GAME EVER!
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.
Addictive at the beginning but once you beated the game you barely play the game again.
SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!
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.
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.
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!
I have spent way too much time playing tetris that it's sort of embarrassing, I think I'm genuinely addicted.
This game may have a simple concept but don't let that fool you this game is so addicting with some catchy music and fun gameplay the first tetris was fun so then there were new installments tetris ds tetris party wiiware tetris party deluxe wii and tetris axis for 3ds all these new games have so many mode and ONLINE PLAY this needs to be number 1
This is way more addictive then Minecraft
Why is this not number 1!? It's EXTREMELY addicting! If I let myself, I could play it for HOURS!
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.
The only game on hear I know...
Meh I used to play it not for very long and it just gets boring after not very long
Dammit! I have lost it and I feel so bored. I feel empty!
THE REAL FEELING OF HITTING PEDESTRIANS IS JUST AWESOME :D
Cousin! Let's go bowling!
I like the cover art
You and group of friends + This game = Fun, screaming and Cussing
6 Seems right
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. :(
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 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
This game makes me an unproductive person. I will sit down for hours doing dlc quests, and exploring caves.
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
Best game of Grand Theft Auto series shoaib alam
When I was young, I was so addicted to it.
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.
Really? 49?! Don't you think that you have to remove the 4 behind the 9?
Everone talks about it
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.
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.
Gonna have to vote on this one. Very Addictive and love to play with friends
Who called for an exterminator?
Very addictive... My favorite one...
Represents the larger part of my non-working life
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.
Boss ass hell and should be a top
Hi ricardo best game ever
Best game ever
There is no doubt that counter strike is the most addictive video game around the world if you just go to a website like gametracker.com 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.
This game's about as addictive as the song is.
Nyan nyan nyan nyan nyan nyan nyan nyan nyan!
I freaking love Pac-Man.
It is the most EPIC game ever.
Pac man just pac man nothing gets as addictive as this
You can't stop I get on the pc and play it. SO MANY REASONS WHY!
Yep The fallout series is just as addicting as fallout 4 is but this game is the same
Mods make the game more fun to play
Yes. I actually played it and it was really addictive (its proably reason why I'm busy at TheTopTens).
Really addictive the first time you play it, but after you beat Ganon (or complete it 100%) you just move on and play another game.
Fun to play online or with friends sometimes. But not addictive (I'm not putting 10 hours a day on this game, you know)
This game, along with other Mario kart games, is extremely addictive and fun
Once I got this game I couldn't put it down
I'm still playing it right now
The Greatest Fighting Game of All Time
If you like to take care of virtual families or make them suffer, this is the game for you
I liked designing houses in sims but the designers have bad fashion tastes
Wasted over 900 hours playing this.
Awesome game especially on big screens!
Loads of replay value, I tell ya.
You can play this game multiplayer for hours!
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
I don't know why...
I have played around 200 hours of this game and I still am not getting bored!
I love this game played for hours it is great
SO ADDICTIVE PLAYING WITH FRIENDS
I could stop playing to finish some great storyline
Clowns are terrifying. Nate hit the nail on the head.
Its an ok game
There's a reason why it's one of the most played games nowadays.
If you want to keep your social status, don't play this game
