    Yeah, Mario Kart was definitely addictive. Call of Duty and Ghost Recon might be some considerations...

    Agreed! I can't believe I forgot that...I have the original and Melee on GCN...what a great game. The reason why people love Nintendo so much is because they make great consoles with great family/party games.

    TTDX is godly, people are still addicted.
    Settlers 2 has a similar problem.
    HoMM 3

    Those are games that are truly classics, can't say that for most of the above games.

    Add Battlefield 2, I love it! My all time favorite has to be Half-Life though, it was the game that hooked me.

    It's amazing a person can sit in front of a computer for that long!! At the same time I'm thinking, OMG get a life! ;) But seriously, that games sounds like it's more addicting than EverCrack, er Quest. Yeah, I stay away from those games. Some of my buddies in the service played WoW and that's all they ever talked about... unbearable when working a 12 hour shift. These guys couldn't even keep a girlfriend because they would rather play WoW. One of them even talked his wife into playing the game and got her addicted too. So now they both go home, say hi, then spend the whole night playing... that's no way to live man. Computers/games should compliment your life, not become your life. So please, go outside, go fishing, go hunting, go hiking, go swimming, communicate with people in the real outside world... don't shut yourself indoors and live through your computer. I swear, I worry about some of you guys :)

    ^^ u totally have a point. I lost my WoW addiction b/c i have a gf, and i would give her my attention moreso than WoW. But i had a friend who was addicted; he took a yr off school. Played WoW like it was a full time job until he jus got too bored of it.

    btw, taking a trip outside the country can help lose ur addiction, complement ur tip with a lot of booze and other social fun :toast:

    Goldeneye: 007 for the N64 was the game that started the whole 3D thing and did it properly....so yeah this one I won't say is the best but rather most influential for todays gaming....IMO of course

    That's the problem, games never truly satisfy, eventually you get bored with it. Then after spending all the time playing, what do you have to show for it? I hate to burst anyones bubble, but a Level 60 Druid doesn't mean $%#* to 95% of the people in the world. In order to continue the relentless pursuit of "the next level up", people isolate themselves to groups of friends who all agree, "this is important" and will give you respect for having a maxed out character. And then when the next game comes out, the cycle starts again. Don't let them feed you their expansion packs, and keep milking you for your money month after month, it's seriously a drug.

    Wonderful Point...doesn't mean $hit like you said to the rest of the world....but in their own little world it means everything!! Halo 2 was my WoW equivalent so I could understand both sides of the spectrum, me and my ex had so many arguments about Halo 2, she would hide the game and I would go crazy trying to find it, and then we would fight about it because she wouldn't tell me where it was.....now that I look back, its soo soo sad...:shadedshu

    As far as "PC" games go...

    See subject-line/title: I'd have to say ANYTHING by "IDSoftware"... @ least from the Wolf3D/RTCW, Doom series, &/or Quake series!

    :)

    * Personally, I think they are "THE SHOP", for anything "cutting-edge" out of the First-Person-Shooter realm...

    If we were to reach to other realms, such as arcades or consoles?

    ARCADE

    I would go with ones like:

    Centipedes
    Asteroids
    Defender/StarGate
    Tempest
    Donkey Kong

    (That's from the 1980's arcades which got me "into" computing in general really, & probably FAR ahead of most of your experiences, but they ARE truly classics, & were loads of fun imo @ least)

    CONSOLE

    From the world of the console home game arena??

    Crazy Taxi
    Yar's Revenge

    I loved "Crazy Taxi" (the passengers bust me up with their comments - especially the black dude)...

    APK

    P.S.=> This is a TOUGH one, so many to choose from over time... like asking someone who their favorite actor or musician is, or tunes & films! apk
