5 most addicitive computer games of all time

August 24 2007

So MSNBC has an article about the 5 most addicitive computer games ...

  • World of Warcraft
  • Everquest
  • Peggle
  • Doom
  • Tetris

I was so addicted to Doom (and Quake) that I basically blew off college. WoW, well, I think readers here already know about my self exile to detox from what is known best as World of CrackCraft.

    What about Price of Persia and Wolfenstein 3D?

    neither of those games caused people to flunk college, be fired, have marriages fail, or die (in the case of WoW) like those 5 Carl ...

    My name is Denis, and I'm a recovering Addict..

    For me, Larry was definitely the one that got me hooked/addicted in the first place, and made me eh.. rearrange my life's priorities... Alive at night, asleep at school ;-) Than all sorts of others filled the void of completing a Larry episode (space quest, kings quest, manhunter, and yes, also prince of persia and wolfenstein) Logical development of a serious addiction is that you want more to get your kicks.. Doom was the one that got me into real trouble, hehe.. I had to quit at that point in time, only to get back into gaming with Age of Empires. My life consisted of getting those 8 hours at work done and over with, and than as fast as possible get seated and control the civilizations throughout the ages. For a good 3 years, that game managed to keep me satisfied ;) A short dry-spell, and than an online game called Utopia: no fancy graphics, just numbers and updates every hour. Thousands of people part of their kingdom, trying to be the best: Me, setting the alarm, to ensure that "the troops" can be send out again the minute they return.. I guess that's what we call addiction.. *sigh*

    I've been without a real game addiction for 1460 days, although I must admit, I had my weak moments, in which I lapsed into a week of indulgences, hehe

    I dare not create an account for World of Warcraft, as I know my life on planet earth will seize to exist, hehe ;-)

    I downloaded Tetris to my cell phone. :P Definitely a BAD idea if I didn't want to be playing every day for long periods of time. :)
