Have you ever been unexpectedly addicted to a game?

Yea, Warframe. It could use more actual things to do, but I swear there is too much to farm for.

Dota 2.

281 hrs in 3 weeks, and I probably already spend around $150 on custom clothing for my characters.

Oh! Forgot about Anno 1404. Was my first Anno game, and I stayed up until 8am the first night I played it.

It's happened a few times, mostly with JRPGs. Tales of Symphonia I bought on a whim because I thought the characters looked cool and it was 75% off the sticker price of $9.99 when a local CD/DVD/Game store went out of business. I think I've beaten it 6 times and it's not exactly a short game. I bought the PS3 version recently but I'm afraid to start it.

Another one is Persona 4. I always heard it was awesome and I found a copy at GameStop so I picked it up. Every time I went to start it though I'd read the back of the box and think "Man this sounds stupid" and put it back on the shelf. I never did end up playing it. Cut to recently, I picked up a Vita and P4: Golden. I put 170 hours into it in 3 weeks.

Resident Evil 4, well, I didn't like any of the previous entries but a friend talked me into trying it anyway. I beat the GameCube version alone 30-something times and I've repurchased it for the Wii, 360, and PC.

One Finger Death Punch. Not even kidding. I can't play it for hours on end, but I just keep going back to play it again and again. An hour here, an hour there... it adds up.

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


Aye, same here. This is currently the game that's eating my hours up.

I've been addicted to a game before to the point of not wanting to do anything else, but it's been a very very long time since I was at that point.

Civilization 1 back in the 90's was my motivation to buy an Amiga and get the game. Prior to that I was happy enough with my Commodore 128. After I got the game, I'd start playing at 4am on some days and not stop till 10 pm and wonder where the time went...

Then there was Frontier: Elite II... I played the hell out of that game for a couple of years.

I think the last game I was seriously addicted to was PSO on the Dreamcast, and that game only lasted me a month before I burned out on it.

Since that time I've been really INTO certain games (Skyrim, New Vegas, TF2, Farm Simulator 2013, Terraria, Minecraft, etc) but never to the point that I'd go to sleep dreaming of the game, wake up ready to play the game, feel sad that I had to go to work instead, think of the game all day at work, come home from work and start the game up, and then play until 1 or 2 hours past bedtime...

I guess I've just gotten old :P
