How many times have you forgotten that you lived on the planet Earth because of a damn video game? Here are 10 of the best worst culprits!

1. Plants vs. Zombies 2

Plants Vs Zombies 2

Plants? Zombies? What’s not to get addicted to? Also, the first title in the series is great, too.

2. Starcraft II

Starcraft II

Endless multiplayer options and lots of fun missions, but also giant mechs? Yes, please.

3. Minecraft


You can do anything. Forever and ever and ever.

4. Candy Crush Saga

Candy Crush Saga

Although not a saga one bit, it’s insanely fun and colorful and available on every type of mobile device ever.

5. Grand Theft Auto IV

Grand Theft Auto IV

This game is super addictive because you can just keep doing worse and worse things all over an expansive game universe. Also, there are hookers.

6. Words with Friends

Words with Friends

Based on the most classic word game available wherever you go, 24 hours a day? Mindboggling.

7. Angry Birds

Angry Birds

Silly and constructed to be endlessly playable. Also, you can funnel your frustrations into winged rage animals.

8. The Sims

The Sims

As addictive as it is to actually be alive and do things in the real world.

9. Pokemon


You have to catch them all. You have to. Then you have to do it again, and again, and again. 

10. World of Warcraft

World of Warcraft

Have to hand it to a game that can literally destroy people’s lives.

So, have me missed out any games that have driven you insane?
