They are addicting because they are an escape from the real world and it's hurts. Someone who gets picked on at school can be a valiant knight that everyone looks up to in a game. Also they are just plain fun, since when do you get to go around a city and cause mass havoc and get away with it. You want to go to a fantasy land full of magic and mystery? Games will take you there. Some are addicting just because, that, they are addicting IE mmo's are addicting you always want just one more level...just one more...and so on.

Goddamn, your name scares me. The Idea of Laughing Cheese Frightens the Hell outta me for some reason. Anyway, I was simply going to say what Cokefizz said, except mine would be more general and not as Detailed. (Redunant!)

Game stores dont make much money off games. Its a tiny mark up, so they sell second hand games and sell them for 3 times the amount they paid for. Thats how they make money. I think that paying $100 (Australian) for a game that could last you months compared to a movie that you pay $30 to watch maybe twice... Its more entertainment for your buck thats for sure. Also it would be considered escapism to an extent imo, get away from the real life worries for a few hours. All in all - they're fun!
