    I got to thinking about how i've gotten addicted to a few games lately, and this required me to make a thread asking...

    What games are you addicted to?

    Why don't we talk about the games we're addicted to? Of course, for non-players of that game or new players for that game, spoilers would be frowned upon. Despite that little rule, let's talk about the games anyway! Homebrew or not, it doesn't matter.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The games i'm addicted to:
    1. Soma Bringer
    2. Duel Love
    3. The Wizard of Oz: Beyond the Yellow Brick Road
    4. All Cooking Mama games

    That seems to be about it for now.

    But really, I love Soma Bringer. I'm not that far into it, probably just to the second location you can head to on Pharzuph's big giant whatchamacallit transportation (can't spell it), but I think it's one of the best games i've ever played. I love the battle systems and all the music and the characters... I don't know why I didn't pick up the game sooner! I play as Millers, and she looks positively cool with giant weapons. [​IMG]
    And Duel Love is addicting, but the tons of storyline text I cannot read is annoying somewhat. The minigames are fun though, despite my only having played one of those minigames so far.
    The Wizard of Oz: Beyond the Yellow Brick Road, or RIZ-ZOAWD, which is what I shall refer to it as from hereon, is actually a fun game, despite some less than great reviews/scores. It's a great retelling of the WoO story, with updated characters and a whole different side to the story that was not in the movies (remember The Wiz? Or that musical Wicked?) or books. Even simply walking around is fun!
    Finally, the Cooking Mama series. Who doesn't like cooking virtual cookies? It's like when you see that lolcat where it says "I made you a cookie but I eated it", but instead of a talking lolcat it's a video game that is basically saying that old saying "You can lead a horse to water but can't force it to drink". It's still fun though. And good for when it's dinnertime, you're not hungry, and need to get hungry really quick. Really fun game. Obvious why i'm addicted to it.

    And that is all.

    I experience lots of gaming experience on the DS, for how little the gaming experience is compared to a console, but i'd have a good DS if MY PARENTS WOULD BUY ME A FRICKEN DS LITE... Cause mine's broken. There's a big puddle of what appears to be a scratch in the middle of the touch screen (but I scratched some of it off?!), and that has made my DS unable to get the touch screen calibrated. And it's annoying to see in the middle of the DS screen. And I don't like using my sister's DS. And DS Phats are ugly. My parents don't believe that it is illegal for me not to get a new DS asap, either.

    Sweet Choices there!

    I wonder though. Is the new "Ace Attorney Investigations" game/series going to be as good as any spinoff of any series, or better?

    The Phoenix Wright series kept me glued to my DS.

    And so did Final Fantasy Tactics A2. I got almost 200 hours on it. xD

    Yeah. I've found myself many times playing the game a lot, then deleting it off my cart, then downloading it and playing it again. It's just oddly addictive.

    I'm kinda addicted to FIFA 10 and Mario Hoops. I suck at FIFA but constantly seem to start playing it. Mario Hoops is just good ol' fun.

    Certainly Elite Beat Agents and Ouendan. Those are the kinds of games you'll get addicted to for a good while, then months later come back and get addicted again.
    Rhythm Heaven, also. And Taiko no Tatsujin. All those rhythm games.

    Also, like mentioned, Phoenix Wright. Those games are great. And Ace Attorney Investigations isn't looking bad, either. So I'm definitely going to play that when it's out.

    Kirby Super Star Ultra, until you beat it,
    Super Mario 64 DS while it lasts,
    Warioware Touched, for sure,
    Worms Open Warfare 2,
    and even though it's just a mix of existing games, I got addicted to Club House Games for a little while, too.

    Actually, i'm sort of an on-off casual and hardcore gamer, so I get addicted to a lot of games but the addiction is gone within a few days..... Sometimes within an hour.

    But, it's funny.. It's usually those old favorites.....

    Everyone is listing games i've been addicted to once, and deleted from my cart later, to make room for the newer or better games. If it ever gets dumped, i'd probably go and get addicted to Jam Sessions 2... Maybe a little dungeon crawling or something, if they'd release Warcraft or Diablo onto the DS like they should.... I dunno.... Depends on my mood and level of boredom.

    And in fact, my level of boredom is extreme right now because Duel Love isn't in english and I don't like waiting SIXTY *Bleep* YEARS for gameplay that isn't cutscene........ Seriously, I like the game, but i've played it for almost an hour and a half and i'm still not even close to getting to play another minigame. My total minigames for the game is 1... Hoping it gets to two, but within the week if I don't get more than 2 minigames i'm just gonna say *bleep* it and delete the game, even though I love it and am addicted to it.
