A game to immerse a depressed person...

On spring break with literally nothing to do but be depressed in my room. So I want to get something that will hopefully just suck me in for the next 2 weeks. I was thinking between Dead Rising 3, Assassin's Creed IV and Thief.

None of those are heavily immersive to be honest. Try a last gen game like Red Dead Redemption.

If you are depressed.... I would choose a more uplifting game.

Otherwise AC4 has a ton of content!

What I want is something time consuming to take my mind off things. Stuff with a lot of collectibles, a open world, a storyline that is fairly decent. Maybe some fun action. Last game that made me forget about life was Skyrim. Only game I ever played about 20 hours straight with out stopping unless it was to eat or use the restroom. I want something like that.

I only really have a Wii U and Xbox 1. My 360 doesn't work and my ps3 is on it's last legs.

Lego City is fantastic for Wii-U and would last you the days you need it for.

Well check out the DR3 demo as well. You will certainly be able to dump a ton of time into it if you enjoy it.

Check out some of the old ps1 RPG games on psn. They usually do a pretty good job at immersion. I've yet to really find a modern game that sucks me in like they do.

Why are you depressed?

Why go to the park and fly a kite, when you can just pop a pill?

Any good game can be good for depression.

I strangely found fast action games were good. Just spead my mind up a bit. Avoind online though- people will just depress you further.

Try to get good at fighting games (unless you're easily frustrated). That worked best for me.
