I'm trying to come up with a good game idea that is extremely fun and addicting to people. So what games do you like to play? Tell me their features, art style, etc.

Am I about to fall for another troll? This can't be real, right?

"Never attribute to malice that which can be sufficiently explained by simple naivete."

Right now (and until proven otherwise), I'd be more willing to bet that it's simply a new guy trying to get started.

@ LuminousRay: My advice to set aside trying to design something big and "addicting" for now. Go download Game Maker (link at the bottom of the post) and concentrate on just making a game. I suggest a simple platformer or pac-man clone or something like that, and then just slowly ramp up how complex your games get. They don't have to be best sellers, or even really that good. They just have to be. Your goal is to learn.

Alternatively, find an already-existing project you can join and help work on that. Gain experience in your field, whether it's coding, or sound, or writing, or whatever, a few months to a year or so. I know that's less exciting than just jumping in and making a game, but trust me, it'll help in the long run.

By the time you've got experience, you should have an idea or two for your own game.
