When I first played Morrowind on the XBOX it was the first truly open world game i played and, I'm not sure I was quite "addicted" but, I remember literally not being able to stop until 7am at times...

FF: Tactic got me pretty bad too... there was always a member who needed a few more job points.
I was once a pick up artist like you until I took an RPG to the knee.

Rune Factory and Monster Hunter Tri for recent ones. We're talking 8+ hours sessions with few, if any, breaks for the bathroom, or even eating. Of course, Pokemon's always been a big thing for me, too, and I really got into Final Fantasy XIII-2 back in March. Otherwise I haven't really been "addicted" to gaming since I was a little kid...

Back in the day it was Pokemon.  I sank hundreds of hours into Red, Blue, Yellow, Gold and Silver (Red and Gold in particular).  After that I graduated to Morrowind and sank entire summer vacations into that game.  I've also spent a lot of time replaying MGS 2 for dog tags and such.  Also, Ninja Gaiden/Ninja Gaiden Black.  I was so happy to have a game that was designed to give me a challenge that I spent a lot of time replaying that game on various difficulty levels and experimenting with different weapons.  Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 also come to mind.  When I get my PS3 (in early-mid July) I am quite confident that the MGS collection and LittleBigPlanet are going to suck away my time.

Sadly I think buying games is my biggest game addiction :(

but in terms of playing, Recently I could not stop playing Kid Icarus uprising. So much loot and achievements to unlock. And the multiplayer just kept that game going forever, I am still only about 85%  done with it.
Rumors about my snacks are false. They are not so hot you die of coughing

SMT Imagine was my first MMO, and it hooked me hard. We had a solid guild from an SMT community, and I was in charge, so I was playing pretty much nonstop.
(The guild is still active[BlackSun], and I still play from time to time.)

Is there a linear plot that's worth anything along the level grind? I'm toying with the idea of playing through this one.

I've been there before.  Fortunately, I've found that realizing that I'm swimming in an ocean of games and torn between trying to run three + different games at once or having to make some tough choices on what to play allows me to slow down.

On a different note, I forgot to mention earlier that Ocarina of Time sucked countless hours out of my life as a teenager.  I spent a lot of time re-playing that game and simply roaming around and messing with random things. (Damn chickens...)

I played all three Mass Effects, DLC included, back to back this spring. And I played ME3 a second time right away, plus countless hours of multiplayer.

Couple summers ago I played some 6-7 MegaTen games in a row including Persona 3&4, Digital Devil Saga, Nocturne etc. I was so SMT fried after.

There was a time when I played tekken 5 and then 6 non stop for like 2-3 months. Got to the point where I had a ridiculously offensive and speedy Kuma, not because I was that good with him, but because I started learning other characters to know what I could prevent using the bear. It was at the point where I would challenge people blindfolded just based on who they picked, especially Eddy and Christie, but I had to leave it on 2 rounds, cuz people would pick up on my patterns. I miss those days, but I EVENTUALLY got sort of bored playing it.

TASTY!

For me it's pretty rare to play long gaming sessions, normally even if I love the game when it's about to reach the 3 hours mark I need to take a break, with very few exceptions.

So my biggest addiction was Star Wars: Kights of the Old Repuplic. I remember clearly I played it for 3 days straight, from the moment I got up to the moment I went to sleep. I think I even skipped dinner most of the times.

Other games that came close to it were Final Fantasy X and FF Tactcis.

Recent games that I had a similar feeling, but not through the entire game but just a few gaming sessions were Fallout 3, Dragon Age Origins, Portal 2 and Tales of Vesperia.

I've played Symphony of the Night damn near fifty times from start to finish.  Considering how rarely I re-beat games I enjoy, I'd say that counts as an addiction. :P

I am. The worst was playing P3 and 4 back to back... I was so mentally checked out by the time I unlocked P4's true ending dungeon. :P
