How do I cure my Gamer ADD? I can"t play any "slow" types of games.

#1YombieePosted 9/1/2014 11:43:40 PM
I don't know what's gotten into me, it's either I play Dota 2 or flash games on my pc, or games like Saints row 4, or crysis3 multiplayer on the console... really spastic types of games that are instant action, no development. I don't really enjoy myself so I only end up playing at most an hour.

I've been struggling to even force myself to play crysis3 campaign/ni no kuni. I've been thinking about Terraria as a means to get back into something lengthy but I've yet to make the dive.

Any suggestion to get through this gaming rut?

Don't play things you don't want to play.

Is it always that simple?

I guess it's Dota2, Terraria, The Last of Us, Diablo 3.

Oh god. am I.... a casual gamer?

smh.

I need to find some games to sink my teeth into and cure me of this affliction, I seriously feel the need to wash myself of all this casual filth, I need something hardcore pc-centric, something complex, something daunting, something that'll feel like mystery for me again.

Maybe it's time I tried to understand Dwarf Fortress?

Well you have a PS3, right now I'm playing through the FFX remaster and enjoying it.

The story picks up fairly quick and keeps getting deeper relatively fast. It has some pretty amazing sounding music and the characters are pretty developed.

Maybe try that? I think it's cheap on Amazon right now.

Try something from Matrix Games or Paradox Interactive.

Strategy games? Play something you can pickup and play or work towards something? Play Civ and work towards completing a huge map or play any of the wargames like lets say Panzer Corps and do one mission at a time?
