World’s Most Highly Addictive Video Games

Games are a beautiful thing, aren’t they? They take you off into different places where you can be just about anything — from a soldier in a war theater to a rogue in a land full of dragons, or even a simulated version of yourself in a world that is much like your own. And all in the comfort of your own home, where you can relax, grab a beer, and play to your heart’s content.

Games are so easily addictive, though, and that’s part of what makes them so great. The world they are set in, the characters you can play, the things you can do — it’s enough to make you want to forget you have a day job. After all, why mess around with a lazy boss and office projects when you’ve got demons to kill and side missions to complete?

If you’ve found this page, chances are that you are addicted to at least one of the games on this list. Whether you play on a PC, an XBOX, a Playstation, on Facebook or on your phone, with friends or on your own, our list is sure to have a game on the list that you currently play.

Grand Theft Auto V

Take Grand Theft Auto, for example. This high-octane franchise takes over your life — and your morals. From ditching the cops on the highway to setting up heists to just walking around and causing general mayhem in the streets, Grand Theft Auto is set up to test your capacity for violence and criminal activity.

The online version of the game is also rigged to get you to do more dangerous missions for more money. The more money you have, the better guns, ammo, boats, planes, cars, and homes you can buy. And that’s worth eight hours of your life, right?
