1. Kingdom Hearts 1 and 2
2. Gran Turismo 4
3. Burnout Paradise
4. Final Fantasy XII
5. Pokemon Ruby Sapphire (even at the age of 14, which I was at the time, and they're still solid RPG's)
6. The Ratchet and Clank games...
7. The Jak games...
8. Fallout 3
P.S. Been playing a bunch of KZ2 lately...
I don't know if I can think of 8 exactly, but here goes:
Diablo 2: The worst offender, if you value your life do not take this thing online. I spent about 600 hours on this bad boy when it came out, and another 100 or so after dropping it and rediscovering it a year or two ago.
WoW: The obvious one, I played for about a year or so, clocked in around 120 hours or so on my main character.
Kingdom Hearts: The odd one out, I didn't even really like this game all that much, but for some reason while I was playing it I went through an addiction phase that lasted exactly 1 playthrough, only notable because I bothered to grind for the Ultima Weapon for some reason... yeah, I'm ashamed of myself too.
Street Fightert IV: The recent addiction, 73 hours and counting.
A Link to the Past: My favourite game of all time, beat this about 11 times.
It has to be eight? Here are some games that I not only got totally immersed in, but also ruined some other aspect of my life at the time:
-Super Mario Bros 3
-Final Fantasy 8
-Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit
-Mario Kart 64
-Metal Gear Solid
-The World Ends With You
My time in college would have gone a lot better if it weren't for a few of those games.
Civilization....unquestionably my biggest time stealer
Online shooter du jour (CS, Halo 2, Call of Duty...and Shadowrun (highly underrated fwiw))
WRPG's - Baldurs, Neverwinter, KOTOR, Oblivion, Fallout (all of the RPG's), etc
I never got hooked on a RTS or JRPG....I didn't even get to the end of FFVII or FFX.
" Halo 2 was the worst for me. I did the math and P spent 8000 hours playing that game over a year and a half. I regret it so much but I guess its just water under the bridge now. "
8? I am not sure.
I can say that GTA IV, The Sims, Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis, Super Mario 64, Fallout 3, Professor Layton and the Curious Village and Rock Band 1/2 are up there. Well, that is 7. Let us add in Alien Vs. Predator (the original) for some more variety.
In no particular order:
1. Civilization IV
2. Halo 2
3. Rock Band
4. Star Wars Galaxies
5. Animal Crossing
6. Super Mario World
7. World of Warcraft
8. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
While this is certainly not my list of the top 8 greatest games of all time, these are the ones that have consumed the most amount of time from my life as I played them. My original list actually included several other Star Wars games (such as the Rogue Squadron series and even Galactic Battlegrounds) however I removed them for varieties sake.
Also, a note about Civilization: I think that most people who don't have that game on their list just haven't played it. Not saying its for everyone, but those of you that do get into the game will inevitably end up spending a ridiculous amount of time with it.
