First PC game I got hooked on was Aces over Europe. LOVED that game. Took about 20,000 31/2 inch disks to install. Still had the best SP campaign.

My first game I was hooked on, was the first game I did ever play. And that was Marioland 1 on the gameboy. I still remember getting out of bed 5AM before school so I could play, and waking up my whole family crying and yelling when the "Game over" screen appeared..

The game I was "most hooked" on ever (and this is still my nr.01 game ever) would be my first RPG I ever played: The Elder scrolls III Morrowind. It was so bad that i even had to re-do my year at school, because i did nothing for a whole year exept playing Morrowind.

Played many games however the first one that I was fully addicted to was Coolboarders, I would sit there and be as much as 75% on a course and if I didn't ace the move I would restart the whole thing.

Also another one was Tenchu I had that game so down that I could run through the entire level non stop with stealth kills one after the other.

Both Diablo 2 and Battlefield 1942. Which I played both for years at about the same time.

- Rocket Ranger
- Wings

(okay so it went from one to about four hehe but once I thought of one all these others popped up)
I can agree on these games.
For me it was Wizard of Wor on C64 followed by Giana Sisters on the Amiga 500.
