It's happening right now: KOTOR 2.  I cannot stop playing. I think about it at work.  I think about it when I'm trying to fall asleep.

An unbelievable game.  It just won't let me go.

I've been Tetracized!

Rez4 (gc) and mercs (Xbox)  These 2 games have swallowed my soul.  Ive not touched my PC in a week, and the people in EQ2 are starting to wonder if  my wife killed me so she could play.

mercenaries is doing this to me right now.  i've been at odds to keep at eq2 during this time, as mercs is just so much fun.   i have been revisiting missions in my head and making plans for how i would do them over again.  

i always know when i'm into a game when i check the impressions threads here and on OO to see if anyone has posted anything new.

uhhh... www.chessatwork.com I've played maybe 2 hours of other games since the time I found this site. Combine it with Chessmaster 10 when I'm waiting for opponents to move and I have no need for other games.

My brain is currently having trouble coping with both it's natural addiction to World of Warcraft and my new acquisition of Mercenaries.  The first few hours of Mercs I was just as giddy as a school girl and hardly even bothered to complete any contracts.

Currently, it's GTA: SA. Before that it was Half-Life 2. Before that it was Chronicles of Riddick. Those three games I could not stop thinking about while I played through them. GTA: SA is still at the forefront of my mind since I'm currently playing it. Aside from the ocassional review, it's the only game I've played since Christmas and I'm just now unlocking large chunks of San Fierro (just unlocked and completed driving school last night). I tell my friends they have no idea how big this game is and they nod their heads and say they understand. No, they really don't. But they will when they see that map for the first time. biggrin

I love chess but I'm not terribly good. Win or lose, I usually learn something. The thing I like about the site I linked is that you don't have to worry about having enough time as the games generally take place over several days. Not the best place for the impatient, but if you subscribe you can play dozens of games at a time so you aren't always waiting for others to move. Non-subscribers are limited to 6 games at a time.

The last game - Shadow Hearts Covenant.  Couldn't put it down.  Then Baiten Kaitos until I stumbled across a "game killer" for me.  FFXI has been an ongoing addiction however.

I went wacky with the original Max Payne a couple weeks back and now I'm knee deep into the original Paper Mario.  Could two games possibly be more different?   :shock:

genuine, honest-to-goodness 'addiction'? - i'd have to go back most of a year to final fantasy tactics advance. no single game since, not even the original ff:t (which i played shortly after), has managed to get into my bloodstream like that game did...

i play most games to death the first few days after i grab em but then sorta fade away from them (and no i actually dont have a short attention span smile)  the last games that had me always playin em were baldurs gate DA 1 and even more so 2.

Pirates of the Caribbean also had me goin for a LONG time - until i started havin problems with games crashin when i tried to enter a particular port combined with bad saves

most recently - it was kingdom under fire - i made the mistake of pickin up halo 2 before i finished my fix of KUF but down halo after an addictive week and then started playin other games so that sorta went artificially by the wayside

my flat-out-most-addictive-game-ever-to-the-point-where-i-wont-allow-myself-to-own-it however belongs to Counter Strike on live.  if this game were on my shelf i would never sleep get laid or go to class - its that bad

Unreal Tournament 2004 - i started playing the demo almost a year ago, and i've been hooked ever since (due in no small part to playing on zaxxon's server).

Half-Life 2 also had me for a while, but the addiction to that one starts to wear off once you've finished the game a time or two.  UT2K4 just never gets old Cool

Let's see...over the summer was the last time and it was with Unreal Tournament 2004.

It's really hard for me to sit down and play a game for an extended amount of time, nowadays.  Don't know why.  KotOR2 is the closest as of now, I'd say.

On the console, right now I am addicted to 2 different games

KOTOR2 - Finished it on the light side and am now part way through the Dark Side

LOTR:TTA - I listened to all of the comments on here and went out and bought it. I am super addicted.  It is kinda repetitive but for some reason I just gotta keep going!

Right now my addictions are Mercenaries on the Xbox and Rise of Nations on the PC. Toss in A minimum of 2 nights of Halo 2 a week. I'd say that qualifies as addiction too.

The last game I played start to finish without starting anything else was Shadow Hearts:  Covenant.  It was so well done all the way through that I just couldn't pull myself away.

I'm now splitting time between KotOR2 and Baten Kaitos (about 20 hours into each), both of which are great games.

The only truly addictive game is Civ III.

But for the last few days I've been spending ridiculous amounts of time (for me) on Pokemon FireRed.  I didn't realize that the game would pick up so quickly at Vermilion City.

ESPN NFL 2K5.   I am not like others here, as in, I don't sit and play to the end (of a season would be a good comparison?).  But every damn time I try to read a book, study, watch a movie, or watch a sporting event, I keep imagining myself breaking for a kick return TD, or getting an INT TD, to the point that I must drop everything, and play it.

Definitely CivIII.  It's still on my HD and I just started up another quick game a couple of days ago.

Morrowing is a close second. On my 7th or 8th character.

Totally Most Addicted to Ever: a tie between the original NES Legend of Zelda, played every day, long sessions, not enough sleep for work, and;  the Xbox Elder Scrolls: Morrowind, played thru three times in a row, Thanksgiving weekend included a 30-hours- straight session, lots of 12 hr sessions (never said i had a life).

Actual Answer to the Question (just remembered it was "last" game addicted to):  "plain" addiction - Thief (XB), currently playing, mild to moderate addiction, no sleep lost.  the last game i was totally addicted to - Morrowind.  i'm starting to lose sleep thinking about Oblivion...

Does the Xbox version of Morrowind include the two expansions: Tribunal and Bloodmoon?  At least the PC versions of those were quite good and added many many hours to an already fine game.
