    Thought it would be a good idea for everyone to post the most addictive games you have played, as surely these are the best, no?!

    for me, i regularly go back to FTL, CoH and trackmania (moreso these days cos i can talk ******** all day to people i dont even know :D)

    oblivion back in the day i just couldnt put down and ive been going back to xcom lately aswell.

    So whats your favourites?

    Seeing your post made me just realise I voted for the worst CnC ever made ie CnC4. I meant to put CnC3. :facepalm:

    FM12 is a slow going game, I work from home and have it on most of the day, tend to have a play when on a conference call etc. So no, its not constant play, its logs as long as the game is loaded. Pretty sure I will take it to over 1k hours before the years end :laugh:

    Portal 2 and International Snooker 2012 on the iPad. Signs of a misspent youth by the looks of things. :devil:

    Planetside 2. It was my first big game since ascending. Less dedicated now but I can very easily be talked into firing it up anytime.

    Also, can help myself for the odd bash of Sonic Racing Transformed :smashin:

    Erm, I'm not sure I've caught up with going forward yet ;)

    It'd be Oblivion/Fall Out 3 (for the mods), FFVII, WoW and Solitaire being the main one's I suppose :)

    Metro 2033. It's the only game worth getting the 3D glasses out for.

    Thief 2 & 3. Just hope they don't **** up the next one.

    Just finished Mechcommander 2 again. Did you have any problems getting the first one to run?
