As most of you know, I’ve been sick for what feels like forever. The other day I tried to play one of my most frequented genres (first person shooters), and it didn’t go well. It was exceptionally difficult for me to focus on what was happening and, in less than an hour, I had to stop playing due to feeling worse from the experience.
Not to be deterred, I’d like to try to play something else, hopefully something my swimmy brain can currently handle. Here is a list of games I currently own, that I’m willing to try, and am hoping for recommendations of. I’m leaning more towards trying to play something text-based (as opposed to crazy amounts of movement in first person), but I’m open to ideas. If there is something not on this list that you think might work, I’m all ears to that, too.
Here we go:
Among the Sleep
Dear Esther: Landmark Edition
Doki Doki Universe
Emily Wants to Play
Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture
I Am Bread
Jazzpunk: Director’s Cut
Layers of Fear
N.E.R.O.: Nothing Ever Remains Obscure
Night in the Woods
PaRappa The Rapper Remastered
Tales From the Borderlands
The Vanishing of Ethan Carter
The Walking Dead: Season Two
I am also hoping to at least try to play some Overwatch for the limited time PvE event.
I know some of the titles on this list are first person, but most of them are exploration games so I didn’t know if I’d be able to handle them or not. I hope to be able to. With the exception of Persona 5 and Overwatch, I have all of those titles digitally. I have more on physical disc, but many of them are first person combat games and I don’t know how well I’d do with them. Again, if you have any suggestions not seen here, please let me know. I’m just entirely hesitant to experiment with anything that requires my FPS skills. Trying to take everything in didn’t feel so good.
With that I ask: what are your gaming plans for the weekend?
And thank you in advance for the recommendations! I’m looking forward to them!
