What are some addicting games on steam?

Fallout 3/Fallout New Vegas Much like Skyrim/Oblivion except these games I actually cared more about finishing the background story, where Skyrim/Oblivion was much more fun just exploring and doing whatever I wanted. I guess you listed Fallout 3, so try New Vegas.

Just Cause 2 is another sandbox style game but with a focus on blowing s*** up and creating chaos...Plus you can pull people out of helicopters in flight... great fun.

Dungeon Defenders is sort of a 3rd person Tower defense game, and you can play it online with friends. They kinda went overboard with DLC but even the default characters are still lots of fun to play.


Civilization IV/Civ V I really preferred IV over V but if you've never played one maybe you'd like V. It's kinda like the same deal as AoE 2 vs AoE 3.... they made some radical changes to the game.

Spore is actually not that bad (and might be pretty cheap though I'd wait for a sale) but some of the stages in the middle are kinda tough/annoying to get past, and once you get to the space stage there isn't a whole lot to look forward to, though initially you can explore the galaxy and do all sorts of neat stuff... Worth a look on sale.


Lol I own New Vegas I just didnt play it nearly as much as F3, infact I didnt even beat it.

JC2 I can borrow it anytime from my friend but...

I actually Bought Dungeon defenders for PS3 but never played it lol

I also got Civ4 but I couldnt get past the tutorial because odd turn based game

Spore had it liked it

Seems like people who liked FO3 didn't like New Vegas and vice versa :I

Well, it's really only addictive if you like free roaming GTA style worlds, but it also has a ton of little challenges you can attempt (like races and stuff), and lots of hidden stuff to find... hell I played it for 65 hours and didn't come close to discovering all the stuff... The world is pretty damn big. Borrow it and see if you like it, and check it out next time it goes on sale on steam...

I don't know how it is on the PS3, but the PC version was a fun game with friends... There's also plenty of stuff to work towards to keep you busy. I'd say dungeon defenders is less fun if you don't have friends to play with...

I also got Civ4 but I couldnt get past the tutorial because odd turn based game


It's definitely a slower paced game, but it's one of those games that once you get into it, you can easily blow away a whole day playing it and wonder where the time went...

Zafehouse Dairies and theHunter. If they get approved for Greenlight anyway.

Euro Truck Simulator 2 is also pretty addicting, and The Sims 3.

No mention of Killing Floor?

I am disappointed in you all : /
