    I don't know if your question is serious or not. But it really can be an addiction, like gambling, or anything else.  Delete the games from your computer and get rid of all credit cards with which your purchase the games. If you have an Xbox, or Playstation, get rid of them too.

    It will be hard for a little bit but you will bounce back.  Like any addiction, it takes time to break free of it - and you may find that something else replaces it - so watch for that--such as compulsive eating, shopping, hoarding etc.

    Uninstall the game and delete all the files in your PC about it like guides and screenshots.It's never easy but possible if you first find a good reason and source of inspiration.Good luck!

    Turn the game console off and go outside, for cryin' out loud.

    I recommend don't do anything like deleting games or getting rid of console. Allot some particular time of the day to gaming & try to stick to the plan.

    There are no shortcuts. Delete the games & they'll come again. Sell the console & you'll buy again. Just normalize your attitude by making this time precious. There's nothing wrong in playing games in a normal way.
