What a loser I was (like I'm not anymore).

That lasted a few months and then I quit cold turkey. It kinda helped that they started charging $10 a month to play it.

...but no more MMORPG's for me.

Wow someone else who played GS3. :) Most addictive for me was Everquest, although Gemstone 3 is a close runner-up. I was hooked on GS3 for a number of years until EQ came along, and then my addiction moved to EQ. Since then I've jumped to and from various MMO games, nothing holding my interest more than a few months at best. Horizons is next on my list though, I'm kind of hoping (for my own good) that it turns out kind of mediocre so I don't get completely sucked into it. :eek:

in terms of addiction in a short period of time (if you can call 175 hours played short), then final fantasy 7. If you mean addiction overall, then cs (3 years now)

Star Control 2 owned me sooooooooooooooooooo bad when it first came out. I've never played a game like it since.

That being said, my current addiction includes Tiger Woods 2003 for PS2.

Wow someone knows what MUD is/was. I have never been more addicted to anything in my life than that MUD back in '97-'99. Since then, I haven't gotten into much of anything aside from UT almost every day. Haven't caught onto the UT2k3 thing yet though.

LoL Gemstone 3! Remember Modus Operandi? It was out around the same time on AOL and was the same kind of game. Man that game was so addicting.

Being an addictive personally, I get caught up in many games. But Diablo 2 and the expansion were big time toruble for me. I just reformatted by hard-drive and am NOT installing this game!
