Girlfriend just broke up with me. Need a good game to get my mind away.

Play StarTropics or BattleToads whilst listening to Sonny and Cher's "I Got You Babe."

I'm pretty sure hate can over-ride any other emotion for the short term.
Five years ago, I lost 30,000 sandwiches and cakes in a blink of an eye. And GLaDOS just f___ing laughed.

Games with brutal visceral violence usually lift my spirits when I'm depressed. Something like Mortal Kombat, Madworld, or Bloodrayne.
There are few problems in life that can't be solved by a hug-happy amnesiac pillbug.

So here's a story: I met a beautiful girl a few months ago, we clicked immediately; for the past few months we have had a fantastic relationship. But she just broke up with me via text message.

Anyway, I down in the dumps and am feeling the need for some escapism. Anyone got any suggestions for a good game to ease my suffering? It can be any type of game, but a good ole RPG is preferred right now.

Via a text message? Lordy, people truly have no class. I'm sorry, TC. Get the FFX HD edition for PS3.

Yeah I've been pretty down lately too. Girl I like not interested :p Dark souls 2 had been keeping my mind off things though. Keeps my mind off of everything actually...way addictive. Yeah just play something addictive. Addiction is the cure. DkS2 is like drugs anyway. It will destroy you and it will feel great.

may sound insane, but play Braid. i know its a game that can be said to be about a relationship which may be too much, but i played it immediately after my break up. even though playing it made me a tad more depressed, it was a good feeling to know that i could pour out my emotions by something that didnt involve sobbing like a b*tch. just a suggestion

Port usually helps me forget when my wife is being an emotional, irrational *****. That and shooty games.

Thus, I recommend Far Cry 2 and/or 3.

Bioshock is also a good series.

The old Thief games, if you want a different type of first person game.

Baldur's Gate is always a win.

For pure fun, Serious Sam.
That is not dead which can eternal lie,
And with strange aeons even death may die.
