Playing Games Is Way Better Than Just Dreaming About Them


As some of you know, I’ve been terribly sick for weeks now; unfortunately I have not improved. Among other things, I’ve been resting like crazy (if such a thing is possible), and sitting up at the computer hasn’t been high on my priority list.

Laying around as often as I have been has given me ample time to think about all the games I’d like to be playing, but don’t feel well enough to play.

You read that right: I’ve been so sick that I haven’t even felt up to playing games. I’m not sure I realized that was entirely possible before this round of nonsense.


As I’ve become ever more a couch barnacle, I’ve been thinking about Titanfall 2. I’ve loved what I’ve played so far. I’m more than aware it’s a game that can be played in one sitting (albeit a long one), yet I’ve still not seen the credits roll.


I’ve been thinking about picking up where I left off with Resident Evil 7, and I’ve not seen even half of what that game has to offer yet. I’ve been meaning to get back to this one in particular as I promised to loan it to someone and I’d like to make good on that sooner than later. Instead, I’ve just been thinking about the game, wondering what will happen and hoping it won’t get ruined for me before I have a chance to see the end for myself.

I think about Dishonored 2 and how I was roughly halfway through before I stopped for other things. I think about not having started Stardew Valley even though I have a strong suspicion I will love it.

I will tell you: laying around and thinking about all these games isn’t nearly as fun as plopping down and actually playing them.

Also, being sick is getting very old.

At this rate, I may just have to hunker down and play even if I don’t feel like it. I want to get into other games I have (namely, Yakuza 0) so I can stay on top of releases this year. This health nonsense is ruining just about everything.

Again, a rousing boo.

This got me thinking, have you ever been so sick you didn’t feel up to playing games? Did you simply rest or did you vow to play games anyway?

Come hell or high water, I’m going to force myself to play something this weekend. And so help me, I hope I at least start to feel better far sooner than later.

Please be safe out there. Cheers, friends.

  1. Oh. I know that feeling so damn well. I used to play much more games when I worked than now when I’m off work due to chronic illness and it amazes me how much more efficient a person is when they are healthy as nowadays I’m barely a gamer.
    Keep well!

    • I’m sorry to hear you are chronically ill. It makes everything so hard. :(

      I agree, wholeheartedly. I have such intense chronic migraines that my doctors consider me disabled, and I can attest to the truth of what you are saying. I used to be so much more efficient at…well…everything when I worked.

      I hope we can both be as well as can be expected.

  2. I’ve played so little this past week and even when I had time to play I just couldn’t settle down to play mainly due to stress. I agree how much feeling better makes playing games. My favorite gaming time is on a lazy weekend day after I’ve slept and eaten and the house is quiet, Feeling good makes gaming so much more satisfying. Sometimes I too spend more time thinking about what I want to play rather than playing. I hope to earn a Lunar Crate or two this weekend as well as play Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s campaign as well as Red Dead Redemption.

    • I’m sorry you have been so stressed. :( Hopefully the weekend presented you with the opportunity to play even a little bit of something?

      And you are right. I enjoy playing more when I am feeling better.


  3. Hey Rebekah! Hate to hear that you’re not on the mend yet. Hoping & praying that things get better for you. Looking to finish up Knack this week; start my second play-through of The Wolf Among Us for my platinum. Then, it will be time for Horizon Zero Dawn.
