Addiction is a serious concern. The first step to getting rid of your addiction, in most cases, is admitting you have a problem. But when it comes to our favorite games, there seems to be no cure for this particular malady.

There’s a line between being super enthusiastic about a game and addiction. So when you find you’ve been playing the same one for hours and hours without end and you’re trying to figure out how to improve your game in your spare time, perhaps it’s time to say “I’m addicted.”

Without further ado, here are the fun and addicting video games you can play on the best gaming laptop:

When the early incarnations of DOTA came out, it was just a custom map made for WarCraft III: The Frozen Throne. Since then, with Steam’s help, DOTA 2 has become a worldwide MOBA sensation. Fast-paced action, various strategies, item builds, and epic comebacks make DOTA 2 a thrill like no other, and for a lot of people, that’s how they start their addiction. Some have been known to play upwards of 12 hours each day just to get their fix.

StarCraft was released in 1998, and the sequel was released in 2010. StarCraft has a massive following throughout the world. Thanks to it, Blizzard’s Battle.net multiplayer service saw a massive spike in players, making it one of the most played games of all time. So what drives the popularity? The storyline, strategic, fast-paced gameplay, and the almost perfect balances between the three opposing sides all make this game so appealing people can’t seem to stop playing it.

World of Warcraft

There have been MMORPGs before, but nothing like World of Warcraft which took the world by storm. Chances are you’ve had that office buddy that came to work the next day bragging about spending 15 hours straight on a single campaign. The story continues where Frozen Throne left off and it looks like the game is here to stay.

The Sims

Once the player makes their Sim family, addiction is going to follow. From the start, by investing in your Sims appearance and personality, you’re already creating the connection, and once you start toying with them, the fun just doesn’t stop (i.e. people who like burning their Sims alive or letting them drown). Oh, and making your Sims a lovely home to live in is pretty fun too.
