    for me, what dictates whether I become addicted to a game is usually taking an idea in a gaming that is relatively new, and make it wildly successful. So to me, a lot of the classics were rediculously addictive:

    civ [all of them], doom [to a lessor extent duke nukem 3d, unreal, unreal tournament, and quake, and the original rainbow 6], tetris, bust a move [had to list this one by itself because it comprised most of my life from the age of 13->16], dune 2, warcraft 2, command and conquer, c & c red alert, mortal kombat 1-3, street fighter 2, killer instinct, nba jam, mario bros 1->mario world, grand theft auto [all of them] and diablo.

    heh, as a gamer, I was all over the map.

    Man great games mentioned.....I have to agree on Duke Nukem, and Rainbow Six. Panzer General was extremely cool the first few weeks I played. And how the heck did I miss MULE! Heck, truth be told Summer Games on the C64 was playing constantly for months.

    WOW - at least till they added so much to it my computer started hanging.
    the original Doom.

    also add Galactic Civilizations II - had to stop playing it so I could catch up my homework
    even Civ III didnt do that to me.

    Good call on Pools of Radiance on the C64.....I loved that game. Another one I played all the way through and really loved was Wizard's Crown on the C64.

    Hmm had to think long and hard on this (I'm old too)...

    Wizardry / Knight of Diamonds
    Ultima III / IV
    Elite
    Auto Duel
    Railroad Tycoon
    Civilization
    Diablo / Diablo II
    Ultima Online
    Civilization III
    Everquest
    World of Warcraft

    Those are listed in chronological order from what I remember anyway... Note although I played Civilization II, for some odd reason I didn't like it as much as the others.

    Also, on the console systems I must tip the hat to Shigeru Miyamoto on:
    Super Mario World
    The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
    Super Metroid <--- Best Metroid ever!!
    Super Mario 64
    The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
