Horrible Awful Time Sucks

I'm just going to come right out with it and admit that I started playing Farmville on Facebook. Please don't boo too loudly, you may wake the neighbors. However, as incredibly entertaining as it's been, I can't help but think about similar games that have eaten months if not multiple years (10s) of my life.

So I've decided to list the greatest time sucks of my life in the form of video games.
  • SimCity 2000 - The Godfather of all time wasted on a computer during my formative years. This game was badass and I'd probably be all over it still if I could.

  • Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas - I mean, you could fly planes! How hard is it to put the controller down when you're dog fighting with the Air Force?!?!

  • Super Mario Bros 3 - Never beat it... could be the biggest missed opportunity of my life.

  • Roller Coaster Tycoon 2 - I know for a fact that I spent a lot of time playing this game, yet my memory won't allow me to look back fondly on that time for some reason...

  • www.Candystand.com - Mini-Golf, Home Run Derby, Billiards, Field Goals... need i say more?

  • NBA Live 2000 - The times were simpler, it was the first game I ever really played on the PS2 and I would rush home from school to play for hours until I heard my dad opening the garage and then I would book it to my room to pretend that I was doing homework. (hint: I just pulled out the old school game boy...)

  • Bonus Time Waster: Spear Toss - Hell Yeah! You remember that shit?! (p.s. you're welcome.)
The best part about this is that even the ladies will eventually find some awful crappy game on the internet to waste their time with (pre-facebook).

So what games did/do you waste your time with the most? And I will not accept "porn" as a legitimate response...

i appreciate your kind words about my farm. i'm basically obsessed with it. haha.

i miss you.

also, i was very into mario's time machine growing up. i spent hours memorizing all the answers so that i could play it without having my dad answer every question for me. that and aladdin. neither of those games are anything like farmville though.

miss you!#@
