A game (esp. role playing) that can lead to 'heavier' and more time-consuming games as addiction progresses.
At first Baldur's Gate was just a reprieve from the daily grind, but slowly I found myself lusting after more rpg's, even pen-and-paper type games. It was at then that I realized I was in the clutches of a gateway game.
