    Alright, here's my top 5 most addictive games. They aren't necessarily what I play these days but they are games that had me completely addicted.

    Everquest - It's certainly not addicting to me anymore but I spent a good part of 3 years playing the hell out Everquest. The social aspect of the game alone really kept me interested for a long time.

    Civ 1 - I started playing the original Civ back when I was probably 10 or 11 and still start up an old civ game from time to time. My friends and I would all rush back to my house after school to continue our civ game. Looking back on it, it was pretty amazing that a turn based strategy game could keep ten and eleven year olds glued to the monitor even just to watch someone else play it.

    Warcraft: Orcs and Humans - The original Warcraft gave me my first look at the multiplayer aspect of games. I started a ladder on old AOL and we had about 20 members. The phone bills for having to dial long distance to connect modems was killer. I had to do a lot of chores some months to pay off my parents phone bill.

    Dune (original rpg game from the mid 90's) - I don't know what I like about this game but its really addictive. I usually start up a game once or twice a year and can't stop until I've beaten it. Of course I've beaten the game so many times I can do it in 5-6 hours but its pretty impressive a 10+ year old game can keep me coming back.

    Covert Ops/Rogue Spear - Someone introduced these FPS games to our whole dorm floor my freshman year and its amazing we got anything done. By themselves I probably wouldn't have given these games a second look but when you play with 15 other people on your floor it really adds something.

    I missed that one....the original MOO was a time killer, that's for sure.
    The original Warlords might make the top 10 also.
