    Counter-strike is the most addictive game ever. It's even more addictive than Civ! CS has "one more round" syndrome like Civ.

    Round 0: Summer holiday! I can play CS whole summer!
    Round 1: Yes! Our team won! I'll have enough money for M4 next round!
    Round 2: We won again! Now I'll have that M4...Oh wait! Next round I can have AWP so I won't buy M4...
    Round 3: I have AWP! *evil laughter*
    Round 4: ARRGH!:mad: Some n00b backstabbed me with his knife and got MY AWP! But I'll have revenge!:devil:
    .
    .
    .
    Round 1337: Damn! Our team lost but...Hey what time is it? 5 AM...Whoops school starts today...I have played whole summer![pissed]

    Knew I had forgotten something, given the 1000s of hours lost to Terror From the Deep I can't understand why!

    I thought I had posted in this thread already. Apparently not. The most addictive game I have ever played was the MUD Thunderdome. The most addictive nonMUD game I have ever played was Civ 1.

    1. Of course good ole' Civ, but
    2. Total War is, imo, a better all round funner game than Civ. Maybe just for us conquerers who love the military aspect of games...
    3. Anything made by Firaxis so far has been quite addicting - I'm looking forward to CivCity: Rome and Railroads, not to mention Warlords.
