World of Addiction 
Saturday, April 22, 2006, 11:41 AM - General
What is it with RTS games that make them so addictive?

For instance, take my addiction to Total Annihilation (and its "parents" Warcraft and Command & Conquer) and Warfare Incorporated. I can literally spend whole hours just playing a single skirmish map without being aware of life going on around me!

Whether its the simple point-n-click interface, or the hilarious destruction, the games just keep me hooked even through the wait periods of building units and weapons.

It's probably a good thing that I haven't gotten around to playing World of Warcraft, considering its addictive issues.
