So many games to mention I very much doubt I could remember them all, from my original NES, SNES, N64, PS, PSII and then the PC there were so many.

But as for the very first addictive game it had to be the original Super Mario Bros on the NES when I was 8 or 9 years old. I still brag to people to this day (even if they dont care) that I once clocked Super Mario Bros in one sitting when I was 9 without losing a single life... ahhh the memories.

Scott Adam's adventure series on the TRS-80 was probably the 1st, although Doom1 and Duke Nukem 3D I each played continuously for well over a year.

Mine were LoZ: ALttP for the simple reason of pure fun and I couldn't wait to find out what happened next. The other was, as was mentioned before, Final Fantasy III (VI, stupid renumbering). I remember thinking how epic that game was, and still is. Character development, and engaging story, and scope. That game was a god among games back then.

Tetris on the original b/w Gameboy. Sadly the handheld no longer works but I remember playing that all night for several weeks when I got the GB.

The first video game I really started getting addicted to was Hogan's Alley.

The second one would have to have been Hang-On (the stand-up version, NOT the sit-down version) I'm still pissed at 7-11 for replacing it before I completed all the courses.

First really addictive game for me was Syndicate. But Privateer is a close second.

When I went to super saturday at putt putt I would always play Galaga 88 before the end of the day and feel I was the only one that would play that game all day. I loved the idea of merging into 3 ships and tried to see how far I can go. The farthest I ever been was level 15 and that was without warping. Even playing it on an emulator that is about as far as I can go on one coin! I am hoping to one day go to Twin Galaxies and attempt a high score. Doubt I would get top score but it's the experience I want.

Another game I loved was Rampage and I could really play that all day. In fact when I found it for MAME i loved the idea of unlimited coins. Even if I went to putt putt and got 20 tokens I still didn't last long. Lets just say I kept on playing until I reached level 99. God knows how many continues I had but I do know I was playing for almost 6 hours straight! I just wish I can learn to stay alive longer to attempt a high score at Twin Galaxies.

Elite on my Amiga 500. I don't know how many hours I spent flying that ship around. I don't think I made it past a rating of "Mostly Harmless" but damn if it wasn't fun trying.

I still remember the feeling of aprehension making a hyperspace jump - would I make it or would the drive malfunction and dump me into uncharted space to get swarmed by Thargoids?

Moon-faced assassin of joy.
