My first addicting game would have to be the original Knights of the Old Republic. I will still play it when I get the chance.

On PC, Defender of the Crown was one of my first major time sinks. Played it over and over. SDI as well.

On Apple ][, too many to count.. I really wouldn't know where to begin.. Actually - probably Mr Robot! I spent so long playing that game and making maps. I'd make themed maps and challenges.. I had so many disks labelled "Mr Robot Maps #17". Well.. I had one labelled 17.. I'm certain the others were labelled appropriately. ><

Other games I poured dozens if not hundreds of hours into..
Chivalry
Lode Runner
Montezumas Revenge
all the Scott Adams Adventures
Sneakers
Dung Beetles
Conan...

I could go on forever.

EDIT: Actually, I remember now, the first PC game I played for a long time was Snipes! Oh how I loved that. Alas, I haven't been able to find the version I had for quite some years (an 80x25, non-hacked version). All there is floating around the web is cracked 80x25 versions which play differntly, or a 40x25 version. How I miss my Snipes..

I loved Defender of the Crown, played it am Amiga, although I can't remember Robin Hood ever jumping in to help.

Many hours to that game, oh so much fun and I sucked at using the lance.

Elite on the Atari ST or XWing vs Tie Fighter on PC a bit later for me although I played on my ZX Spectrum a lot in the years before that.

I used to play a lot of games but the first one I was really addicted was Uncharted 2. That game kept me happy for hours and hours. There were days where I've played 8 hrs straight. And to be honest it is still pretty addicting.

The very first game I was hooked on was probably Asteroids on the old Atari. I would waste many summer holiday days sitting inside playing that. It all helped toward my pasty white complexion!

I cant say I ever got that addicted to any games as after a while I get bored, but I know I played 'Head Over Heels' on the Spectrum a crap load growing up, seriously good game, I still play it from time to time just to relive it. Never really found a puzzle game that captured my heart so much as that did back in the day...

Although I will always use a spectrum emulator and the original ROM to play it instead of a PC based remake... as its just not the same.

Starting with my Atari 800 in 1983 it was Blue Max and Racing Destruction Set. So many hours flying that plane, bombing runs etc and building race tracks with RDS.

Then on the Apple IIs at elementary school it was a lot of hours spent with Carmen Sandiego and Karateka.

There have been many addictions since then but those were definitely my firsts.

-Final Fantasy 6 ( at the time it was Final Fantasy 3) on the SNES. I rented a lot of games for the SNES as a kid, but once I discovered how an RPG was supposed to be played and got into the story, I kept that game rented for about 2 weeks over a summer. I pretty much sacrificed those 2 weeks to that game.

-Breath of Fire 3. My little brother and I played that game in 3 hour shifts, only giving the system an hour to cool down between play times.
