If by LAN party you mean COOP game, you may come over here when we gonna do the next Q2 LAN.
But beware, we're all approx the same age and that Q2 gaming is mainly a cheap excuse to get shamelessly and completely drunk by the end of the night.

I was addicted to starcraft Diablo diablo2 but I didnt stay up all night playing em because I was still in school at that time period but it was to a point where my personal hygiene was becoming a factor and that was on weekends.

I don't know if i can say that I've been so addicted to a game that I lost days of sleep over, but there are some that I certainly have had enormous trouble putting down. World of Warcraft is currently my vice. I remember going through some phases with the original Roller Coaster Tycoon where I was up to the wee hours and couldn't bring myself to trun the computer off. The hours would just fly when playing that game

Default Ultima is King!

heh, i was addicted to ultima 5, ultima 6, ultima 7, ultima 7 part 2 (notice a trend? ) I still have the "gameplan" notes i would make in school, planning out that night's goals in detail so when i got home i could grab a 2-liter, sit down, and not move for hours and hours. I can't think of anything i've ever done or played that had such a huge influence on my life. Even today, i'm still driven by the "virtues", thinking to myself "that's not showing humility; etc." when faced with a moral decision. I remember sitting there recording all the item numbers, npc numbers, egg functions, everything - trying to figure out exactly how it worked. Not to mention trying to get the u7 series to run on my rather poor computer (to this day i still have nightmares about VooDoo and the "mem" screen, lol) I can honestly say that my intense love of computers stems from having to learn exactly how every byte of memory is allocated at boot-up just to get the stupid game to load w/ mouse support. (let's not even consider getting the sound to work!) I give richard garriot a tip of my hat for creating such a unique and in-depth series of games, during a time when the standard for most games of it's kind was almost entirely text based or hack and slash. Even to this day i still play them often - thanks to programs like Exult and DOSBox that allow these near-perfect examples of how a game SHOULD be designed to persist on modern computers.

Ultima addict here as well. Back in the day I also used to play a lot of WarCraft: Orcs and Humans as well as Timequest and The Terminator: 2029.

My main addictions? Diablo 2 and WoW. I've overcome them now, but I'm screwed when Diablo III comes out.
