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!

Apologies for the long list, been playing a lot in Ye Olden Days.

In order of time spend, grouped chronologicaly.

ZX Spectrum (16)
- Jet Set Willy
- Astro Blaster

- Elite (I)
- Boulderdash
- Wizard of War
- Laser Squad
- Commando
- Paradroid

Amiga (500 + 1200)
- Civilization (I)
- The Settlers (I, II)
- Railroad Tycoon (I)
- Wings
- The Sentinel
- Pirates!
- Sensible World of Soccer
- Dyna Blaster
- Silkworm

- Civilization (II, III, IV, V)
- Heroes of Might and Magic (II, III, IV, V, VI)
- Diablo (I, II, III)
- Elder Scrolls (II, III, IV, V)
- Europa Universalis (II, III, IV)
- Hearts of Iron (II, III)

Going by individual systems:

Amstrad CPC: Elite (I even bought a second copy in disk, to replace my original tape, so that it would load quicker)
Commodore 64: Manic Miner or maybe Impossible Mission
Playstation: Tomb Raider
Playstation 2: Gran Turismo 3
Dreamcast: Phantasy Star Online
XBox: Forza
XBox 360: Forza 4

The PC is my format of choice, and there my biggest addiction was probably EverQuest. World of Warcraft is probably the game I've played the most, though, but it never had the effect on me that EQ did.
