Any game to play while depressed or feeling anxiety

Been going through some personal issues lately , I thought gaming would help cheer me up because it usually does but this time around idk if games just aren't as good as they used to be or I'm just outgrowing them. So far I've been playing A lot of dota 2, diablo 3 , and league .. Maybe it's time for a genre switch?

Well two of the games you played are stressful and full of dicks and the other one might as well be called 50 shades of brown.

Try Torchlight 2 which is a ARPG with a colorful aesthetic and enemies that explode into tons of gibs. Firefall is pretty colorful and fun to play but the voice acting is awful and the quests are standard MMO affair. If you liked Far Cry 3 and are a fan of 80s action movie cheese then I suggest Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon for some good laughs. Also Nekro is good fun.

There are a lot of things I could suggest. What is your preferred genre?

If you haven't yet buy brothers, isolate yourself from people for 2-4 hours and play it through.

Whenever I'm feeling down I just start up Limbo and wash those grey feelings away.

My preferred genre is rts, or moba games . And yea I believe someone told me on league that they hope my mom gets cancer -_- people take it way too far. I'll try limbo and Carmageddon I wanna try new genre.

Blood dragon looks cool

I wish they would remake carmageddon 2. That game would be great with modern graphics
It's basically a game where you gleefully commit vehicular homicide and get rewarded for doing so in fancy ways like jumping and landing your car on someone or power sliding into them or taking them out with your doors or throwing debris at them.
And of course you can kill the other racers too.
And if your boring, you can do the actual race.
