My first I remember was C&C. Addictive because I remember dreaming about missions I was stuck on!

Addictive in a way I hated turning it off was Final Fantasy 7 and I never ended up finishing it because the final disk was too scratched! Playing it again on Vita though - I WILL finish it 15 odd years later!
