Have you ever been unexpectedly addicted to a game?

I get addicted to pretty much any decent MMO I play. That's why I can't play mmo's anymore and why I won't be getting TES Online. It's genuinely a problem. It's funny because I used to have a drug problem and to get over that addiction I replaced it with another.

I love you.

Plants Vs Zombies

Expected to like it but not THAT much. I liked it way more than THAT much.

That stupid Mighty quest for epic loot had me playing it for like 18 hours straight.

Civ 5, got it for Christmas a few years ago. Started playing around 7 PM. Look at clock when finished. 2 AM.

Diablo 3 post patch.

Before loot 2.0, game sucked. I made a ton of money on the Auction House, bought a bunch of top tier gear and quit within a 3-4 week period. I thought I was done with it for good....

2.0 comes out, rerolled an HC barb and it has consumed me ever since. Loot drops are way better and even paragon leveling with my main lvl 60 has been fun and I've replaced some of the best gear I bought on the AH with dropped loot.

Can't wait for RoS to hit. D3 has been redeemed in my eyes.

I got surprisingly addicted to the original mount and blade.
First I got the demo, then I modded the demo. I had actually managed to conquer most of Caldria before level 7 :D
I decided after a week of playing the demo, to pay full price and buy the game. I logged another 1000 hours on it. And when the sequel came out, I put another 2000 on that.
The single player is only starting to get boring to me now, might try the multi player.

Dark Souls was pleasantly surprising in its ability to hold my attention until I completed it.

There's nothing else current gen.

CS:S Zombie mod.

I don't play it anymore because the community is a bit spotty but most of my 600 hours in CSS was from the zombie mod. I tried the CS:GO version but it was trash last time I checked. Still glitchy up the wazoo and servers liked to configure the zombies to be weak as beans.

Yeah, once you learn the mechanics it's pretty boring. But when you play the game for the first time, man is it addicting.

If I ever saw an advertisement for a sid meier game I would shred it than risk looking at it again. Pretty much every civ game latches onto you like a strategic succubus and the clocks have stopped running because the springs rusted over.
