Hey everyone, Kristen here! I have quite a bit of time on my hands this week, so I was thinking about what kind of games I could play to pass the time…
Games have made tremendous stride in becoming great social activities, from multiplayer games in the living room to online games capable of allowing you to play with people from all over the globe.
Sometimes, though, it’s nice to be able to just a play a game by yourself.
Fire Emblem games are ones that I prefer to play by myself. They’re brilliant to talk about with others, and there’s a lovely fandom for the game, but if you’re just sitting next to the person playing the game, it’s not the most exciting. Rachel can testify to that!
Harvest Moon is another game that I prefer to play while hanging out alone. It’s so relaxing (usually), and I almost always get sleepy after a good virtual farming session.
Then there are games that are one-player games that should be multiplayer, like the Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney games. They’re utterly brilliant, and it’s so much fun trying to find clues and figure out how the crimes were committed with others. It’s not so much fun trying to cram together to stare over one Nintendo DS console to see the game.
What about you? What kind of games do you enjoy playing solo?
