When it comes to video games almost any game can be addicting because video games released a chemical in brain called dopamine. Which provides us with pleasure when activated. But not all games are created equally some games have better content than other games. Always some games are more of a grind than other games. Lastly some games are more rewarding than other games. I have narrowed down a few of the most addicting games that I know.
When minecraft first came out it was the hallmark of addicting games. Because not many people understood why it was so addicting. It a 3D sandbox survival game where you can build as much as you imagination desires. There is no real main objective to minecraft unless you are playing on survival mode. What I believe makes minecraft so addicting is that it you only get bored of minecraft when you run out of ideas. If you have a big imagination then minecraft could possibly be a endless game for you. Not to mention there are tons of mods for the PC Version of minecraft. So you can even experience a different game everytime you play.
World of Warcraft
I don’t know much about world of warcraft and what makes it addicting because I never really play it. But I do know what makes a MMORPG addicting. For some people it is the story that makes the game addicting and for others it is constant need for finding better gear. Everyone’s goal when playing a MMORPG is to find the best gear in game and kill everything in one hit. There are countless stories surrounding this game and the amount of hours that have been put into this game.
Counter Strike Global Offensive
Counter strike has been around for a long time. Counter strike is a First person shooter in good v.s bad guy type of setting. What makes counter strike so addicting is everyone wants to be the best player. This game takes the cake when it comes to one of the most competitive games out right now. There is an esports for this game which means their are real life teams that compete for cash prizes playing this game. Every gamers dreams is to get paid for playing video games and with the development of video games its all possible now.
League of Legends
This game is also a esports game. So it is really competitive this addicting game is different from the rest because there is a learning curve to this game. You have to really understand the game to be consider good at this game. You have to know how to build your champion in the best way to make him most effective for your team. You have to know what each champion is good for and if it is the right chose when going up against certain players.
Call of Duty
This game is definitely the most brain dead of all games. This game is also esport but it is hands down the easiest to master on this list. I call it brain dead because unless your playing the a game mode with an objective which the average player just hops on call of duty and plays team death match. Which just involves running around a killing the opposing team.
This list wouldn’t be right without the most popular gaming in the world being on it. What makes fortnite so addicting is it’s competitive nature everyone wants to be consider the best something in fortnite. You get throw into a game of 99 other players and you fight to death with the best player coming out on top. There is still a alot of luck that comes into playing this game. So people instantly drop in a find the best weapons in the game. Sure that doesn’t mean much if the player is no good. But just think if that same player dies nine times out of time it is to a better player who then ends up with best weapons in the game.
