Buying a gaming laptop

What to consider when choosing a gaming laptop? I've looked around some guides and have a vague idea, but I'd like to get some thoughts from experienced gamers. There's so much to choose from. I've been wageslaving for two years to save up for this and I really don't want to mess up. My budget is about 1500 usd, maybe a little more.

I'm looking for the best price-to-performance ratio. I don't want to pay for frills, I just want my games to run. I also don't play FPS, mostly strategy games, if that matters. I also don't stream or anything like that. Portability doesn't matter.

Is there a big difference between laptop and desktop? Does a laptop cost much more than a desktop of similar performance? I can't buy desktop because I have nowhere to put it.

Very thankful for any advice.

Does anybody play Dominions 5? It is the most wizardly game in my opinion.

You play as a God, fighting other gods for domination over the world. Single player is really fun, but multiplayer is amazing. You design your own God. Examples of gods:
>Giant obese bbw mommy
>Multiple different dragons
>Sentient black monolith like 2001:space Odyssey
>Giant carp fish that swallows people whole
>Fallen Jew angels
>Fallen Jew demons
>ArchWizards trying to achieve godhood
>Fountain of blood that demands child sacrifice
>Etc

There are hundreds of them. There are also thousands of spells:
>Rain of Toads
>Cast entire world into darkness
>Awaken Treelord
>Sacrifice virgins(f) to summon imps that invade enemy province
>Wish
>Freeze the entire ocean trapping underwater players inside
>Crossbreed different animals with people and each other, spawning swarms of abominations
>Send disease and plague to enemy lands without them knowing
>Etc

And dozens of nations/tribes:
>Virgin sacrificing Jew giant rapists based on biblical mythology
>Virgin sacrificing Aztec slaver rapists who can fly
>Virgin sacrificing Russian bloodwizard rapists based on Slavic folklore
>Forest nation called Pangaea made up of satyrs and centaurs
>Roman Empire but everyone is Undead
>Underwater tentacle rapist nation that spreads insanity onto land
>Spanish Inquisition nation with battalions of self-flagellating fanatics
>Voodoo African nigger nation with witch doctors who ride on giant spiders
>Norse nation with the death-worshipping hag giants
>Norse nation with the flying hosts of bloodthirsty valkyries
>Norse nation with the elf horsemen who are invisible
>Subterranean amphibious cyclops nation that worships big fleshy worms that can predict the future
>Etc.

Hundreds of items:
>Cursed rings that mark the wearer for death by horrors from the void
>Waterbreathing suits
>Bag of winds
>Talking skulls that boost research
>Armor made from condensed virgin blood
>Etc.

And literally thousands of units:
>Blind swordsmen trained in pitch black underground caverns
>Trumpeteer giants who can blow down castle walls
>Mind-breaking aboleths from the deepest trenches in the ocean
>Winged cloud-people riding war mammoths
>Evil samurai demons the size of buildings
>Undead lizard chariots
>Battle hydras commanded by skin-flaying Amazon's
>Etc.

There's a large grand strategy map, but battles are fought on a local map like total war. You give orders before the battle and the troops try to follow them, like real life.

Interesting video game videos

I'm looking for Youtube channels or just single videos which provide detailed analysis about the story/gameplay/game design/whatever of video games or just interesting theories, facts and other stuff like that. I don't really know how to explain it any better so I'm just gonna link a few examples.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vp4-9G47uF0 (Oblivion analysis)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2X2tiINl-X8 (Nier Automata analysis)

Games you're currently playing

I may have burned myself with this one. I wanted to explore every single nook and cranny of this game without any faqs and I have been doing just that. 80 hours in though, and I'm tired of the game and there's at least 4 other bosses and a whole area left to explore (that I know of). I really should have finished the game first and then do this heavy exploration on the second run, then I would have at least seen the ending. Another thing making it harder to continue is that I built a pure mage for this run as all the other Souls games I made the same characters over and over again (guy with a sword that rolls around, pyromancer guy, the usual) and wanted something completely different. This build though means I pretty much can't get a single hit in any boss as all of them can one easily one hit me. The only way I can beat them is to know inside out every move they have and it can get pretty boring doing the same boss 30 times. I know if I take a break I'll just forget about it and never come back to it.

General Gaming Thread

>Discuss games here that don't deserve their own thread.
I'm changing the scope of the board's general slightly this time. Let's discuss anything related to video games that don't deserve their own threads.

Any wiz here ever made something with RPG Maker? I'm seriously considering taking a plunge for the next year and make a serious attempt at making one RPG Maker game. The thing that is stopping me is thinking about better gaming engines like Unity and how far would I get in those if I spend a year messing with them instead.

90s Waifus and Succubi in Nintendo/Sega/Sony

Let's discuss the ups and downs of various female characters from a couple decades back. What did you like about some? Hate about some? Ideally give an example of both in addition to any responses to others ideas. I'll start off with the Donkey Kong Country games. This isn't a furry-themed thread or anything, it's just a really great example I can think of of the contrast that can exist even within a single franchise.

Candy Kong was this repulsive ditz and the only female in the first game. She was supposed to be "eye candy" but I just found her an infuriating aspect of the game which I enjoyed entirely in spite of her.

Dixie Kong was nice. She just randomly joins her friend Diddy in a much more terrifying world than in the previous game to save his mentor who she basically didn't even know. Despite being a lightweight like Diddy, she made for interesting play. Her hair could hold barrels overhead like DK used to require 2 arms to do (wtf her neck muscles) while Diddy was stuck holding barrels in front of him. Her hair could helicopter to slow her descent from falls, which was really useful in sticking landings. She wasn't as fast as Diddy (who could tap into the Speed Force if you lined up a series of cartwheels into opponents) and made cute "ow!" noises when she was hurt, and would cry, it was endearing. A strong female who didn't want to be put on a pedestol but who was still cute and feminine. So much so that she actually became the star of the 3rd game in the series with that faggot down-syndrome Kiddy Kong cousin because DK and Diddy were kidnapped by a scientist.

The TV series adaptations kept Dixie similar-looking (but much less adventurous, which I didn't like) and gave way to much focus to Candy, who they changed the image of and gave more personality, but it was still annoying, like some kind of hip hop negress.

Indie/doujin/mods

This are my favourite kinds of games. Really cheaply made games, often free or very cheap, that you can tell were made for love not profit. The kind of things you see for free on sites like Itch.io, the fanwork games sold at Reitaisai or Comiket, the silly, cheap mods of larger games like TF2's mario_kart or trade_plaza, the gaming world's equivalent of the music world's "lo-fi", essentially. While I'll enjoy AAA games and big budget releases, cheap and obscure games will always be my favourites.

Does anyone else feel like this?

Please refrain from political shitposting about Gamergate esque indie dev drama, that's not what this is for.

Single Player "Beatable" Games

I get 1.5 months off from the corona virus memes so I figured it would be a good time to play some single player games.

Specifically what I'm trying to find are games that are:
1. Playable on PC (or emulatable on PC)
2. Games that are beatable and have an ending (e.g. Half-Life 2, Dark Souls, etc.)
3. Not so much looking for niche genres (e.g. 2d puzzle, simulation, etc.)

Obviously a lot of games fit this criteria, you can probably think of about 10 franchises off the top of your head, but it would be interesting to see some non-franchise obscure titles if you know of any. Just solid single player games "beatable" games.

Pic related is a game probably no one here has heard of. It's a decent game for the time and it fits the criteria. I'm sure everyone here has played a couple random games like this. I'm just trying to make the most of my 1.5 months of NEET.

Android hidden gems

To find a decent Android game you have to wade through a sea of shit that is Play Store. So share lesser known Android games that you liked. I got:
Battleheart Legacy - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yFZYCumpvCA
An older single player RPG. Great combat and controls, interesting abilities and character builds, beautiful art, runs well on anything, too. The story is a bit short, but there is some endgame in the form of endless wave arena mode where you can get the best gear and try to set records.
League of Berserk - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iGtrK7BS8bc
A real time multiplayer dueling game where you basically click on abilities and potions and level your guy. Very repetitive, I found it fun until I hit later levels (25ish?), then it gets extremely grindy. Surprisingly alright community (chat), quite a few players online, though in most duels you fight against bots that use real player profiles. Somewhat p2w but if you spend a lot of time playing it matters less.
Day R - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uXf4zbih0Ps
Top-down survival..RPG?. A little similar to Fallout1/2 but more simplistic. You travel from town to town and gather resources, craft items and try not to die. There is an online mode where apparently you can trade and complete quests with other players. Quite repetitive and difficult, I found only the early game fun. No paid items except the insignificant starter premium pack for few dollars.
CSR2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b9aYphit-JA
Online drag racing with ridiculously good and smooth graphics and lots of real car models. Beware - it's a heavily pay to win game. The only reason I mention it because you can get a modded .apk with unlimited stuff (that was some time ago though). I did that for a week and it was really fun using all the fancy stuff that actually costs thousands of dollars. Then I got banned but it was worth it, I suggest doing that if it's even possible anymore.
Now I'm looking for a multiplayer non mmorpg game I could waste my pathetic life on, any suggestions?

games you used to like, but don't anymore

are there any games you used to like, and you replayed them and realized they were bad?

shin megami tensei strange journey was in my top 5 games of all time list back in 2012 to 2018.
i replayed it this year and it's so much easier and braindead than i remembered, i think i became more skilled at turn-based games and at exploring maps and conserving MP, and this game just offers no difficulty whatsoever for me now and i steamrolled through all fights. i remember when i first played the game, horkos was so difficult that i died to him 8 times in a row. when replaying i killed him in like 5 turns. it is a simplistic game for babies. play wizardry 8 if you want a hard turn based experience.

or how about dead rising? this is another game that i considered infallible art, i bought an xbox just to play this game back in the day. when replaying its HD rerelease on PS4, all of the psychopaths are way less interesting than i remember them being, the dialogue isn't even cheezy or fun, it's just melodramatic. dead rising 2 is superior in just about every single way with much more effort put into balance and content quality and quantity. and the funny thing is, i didn't even like dead rising 2 at launch. it makes me feel like i've evolved as a person.

maybe i will add more later as i think more on this subject.

let me know if this has happened to you.

want to play games but don't because installing them is too big of a pain

i want to play GTA IV really bad, but it's just such a pain in the ass to get it set up and it might take several hours of troubleshooting and trying to install mods only for it to still not work at all. i really don't know if it's a can of worms i'm ready to open yet.
i was also thinking of doing STALKER SoC, but same story there, i read the readme file for the Zone Reclamation Project and yawned. i don't give a fuck about your 15 step process bitch! bitch!

you know something i've always wondered is WHY DON'T THESE RETARDS PUT PRE-PATCHED, PRE-MODDED SHIT UP ON TORRENT SITES?

what the fuck? i remember new english patches coming out for shin megami tensei games coming out, and instead of giving me a pre-patched ROM, i have to go get some software and patch it myself, are you kidding me dude? just put the pre-patched shit up in the first place.

you know what i'll do instead of jumping through hoops like some animal? i'll just not fucking play it. ahahaha seriously. if i have to do more than 15 minutes of installation, if i have to watch youtube guides or whatever, i'm not playing it!



>"hey dude i got this list of MUST HAVE mods!"

oh yeah? zip em up for me dude, i'm ready to have a go.
>"no dude, you have to go to 17 different websites and install them yourself. ETA 6 hours. oh by the way, you have to get this specific version of the game. yeahh, so you have to take your file of the game, install the official update from the official site, then, install this fan update that brings it to version .9, then install this complete overhaul update. then you can start installing all the mods on my list."
how about instead of having me do all that shit you just upload it pre-patched and pre-modded and ready to go? why are you having people download useless versions of the game?
>"WTF DUDE GO BACK TO CONSOLE YOU'RE SO LAZY JESUS. btw there's a 10% chance that even after all that work that the game might just refuse to run if you're on windows 7 or 10."

this "strawman" is unironically the current state of Battle for Middle Earth 2 Age of the Ring mod.

oh, wait.

LOL as of 20 days ago they actually used their brains and uploaded a pre-patched, pre-modded version of the game!
this is perfect and exactly what I had hoped for. i'm really glad I decided to make this thread because it prompted me to look into this.
NOW, FINALLY, i can play Battle for Middle Earth 2 without a 25 step, 4 hour long process of trial and error.
i'm in a really good mood now.

I've spent about 1.2 years between 2009 and today on steam games (counting only approximate waking hours).

R: 15 / I: 4
I grew up with games. I think I played at least half of the games which are listed in various Top games of All times lists. I used to be able to immerse myself completely into the games, and play for hours and hours. Even in the last few years, every once in a while I ran into a title that I could really fall into and clock hours playing it - not as much as when I was younger, but still.

Now this hasn't happened in quite a while, with really rare exceptions. I just can't start a new game, I don't have the patience to learn it and explore it, especially if there's a lot of things to take in (skill descriptions, complex game mechanics, long cinematics etc.).

I have a big back log of games on Steam that I purchased and never played, or played for a few minutes and then uninstalled because I just can't be bothered.

It's a shame, and it makes me feel melancholic.

Did anyone else go through with this? Did you find new hobbies? Is this thread even fit for /games/? Discuss, please.

RIP WC3 TFT 2003-2020

Today Warcraft 3: Reforged has been released. The original Battle Net is gone and users are forced to log in through BNet 2.0.
New features include:
-report user
-report chat
-report map
-ugly models and skins
-constant crashes

Even if you want to play the original frozen throne, it is linked to your blizzard account and if you get muted or banned on one game it affects the rest.
I loved how Frozen Throne was kind of like a wild west where anything goes. There were no mutes and the only bans were issued for map hackers. But now you will be heavily censored and simply saying something unacceptable could result in harsh punishments.

Attached is a diablo 3 "bug" that occured in late 2019 where anyone who was muted was also banned. During that time I received a 2 week mute for chat abuse so I was unable to play Diablo 3. It took them 4 months to resolve this issue. This is how blizzard treats us.

Playstation 2

When I was a kid I always wanted to have a PS2,but my family was too poor to buy videogames.

Now I finally bought a PS2 fat,even when I have a PS3 and PS4 Pro for some circumstances I can't afford to buy games for those right now,so I bought a PS2, the guy on ebay said that it was in good condition and it should arrive in a couple of days.

It includes 2 dualshock controllers and most importantly a FMCB memory card,so I can pirate and create my own DVD's.

What are the best games I can play on it? And homebrews/hacks? The PS2 looks beareable on a HDTV?

Please don't suggest emulators like PCSX2,my PC is too slow for that,keep it PS2 only.

Disco Elysium

The new RPG "Disco Elysium" is coming out in a few days, is anyone else planning to get it?
Despite the huge amount of various info about the levelling system, the traits and such what is hardest to find is basic info like where the story takes place.

From what I have been able to gather it is in a retrofuturistic version of the 70's, set in an eastern-european inspired city called Ravachol (liked named after the French anarchist François Claudius Koenigstein). You play as a police detective, loosely affiliated with the militia police force which runs the law in the city. How you deal with the world around you is entirely up to you, and it seems like skill checks are extremely frequent and failing these don't always lead to negative consequences, just different outcomes.

I'd love to talk about it, especially if others plan to get it when it comes out on the 15th. I am especially intrigued by the "mind map", which is something the devs says will shape the player character. For example, focusing on particular ways of doing things may lead to the character developing OCD, and always choosing conspiracy-related topics could lead the character to become paranoid, giving different bonuses and penalties to the gameplay.

As far as gimmicks go, I think this is pretty interesting and I'm looking forward to seeing how it'll actually work. The devs have also said (in a thread on the steam forums) that the base game will be around 25 hours long just to do the main story, and at least 40 hours long for a single playthrough where you do whatever side quests you feel like.

Thoughts on this?

How to get back into enjoying videogames

I've started to feel like playing games are a choir now for the past 2 or 3 years. Downloaded Day of Defeat: Source again to play a little but I know I'll eventually get tired of it. After that, I'll enter another cycle of finding a videogame that fills the void inside of me that reminds me that I'm that my hobbies I've enjoyed as a kid and a young teenager have passed. I think what I'm trying to say is how to do you deal with this situation and is it really possible to find other hobbies if you have the attention span of a gerbil.
Wasnt sure if I should have posted here on this board but if mods want to move it to the other board it's fine.

Movie Based Games

Does anyone else enjoy playing movie based games? They are usually really short and easy to play, but it feels rewarding beating games so I always liked them. Toy Story 3 is an example of a really good movie game. Most of them are pretty shit though compared to real games. So does anyone have any recommendations for games based on movies?

SWTOR Holocaust guild

So I made a new guild in SWTOR and then I got it up to like 3rd place server-wide, that is, it's the 3rd highest ranked guild. I invited 1000s of people and the guild has 999 members, which is the max. Then I bought a guild name change and changed the name to "Holocaust Never Happened".

Tons of people got angry, it was awesome. Here's a pic of the weekly guild scoreboards, we are in 3rd place, and tens of thousands of players are seeing it, seeing the guild name, LOL.

Souls General

Can we get sort of a Souls/Bloodborne general thread going? I am mostly a PC gamer, but I do own a PS4, and I just bought Bloodborne. I've been really playing it a lot, and currently I'm fighting the 'Witch of Hemwick.' Anyway, I really like the atmosphere of these games; lonely, foreboding, and depressing. Very much like the life of a wizard in the sea of normal-ness. I think my favorite Souls-like game has to be Dark Souls II. Although I actually never completed it, I had a lot of fun, and I thought that m+k was much more tolerable than it was for Dark souls I.

This thread is a simple thread that can be about Bloodborne, Dark Souls I,II or III, or even Dark Souls. It can be about any element, the lore or enemies, or anything. Also, any action RPG game recommendations are greatly appreciated.

Hey /games/, let's play some gambling tonight:

If you're a fan of the Kaiji anime/manga, you may remember the restricted rock–paper–scissors (??????? Gentei Janken) game played in the series with stars & cards. This is a pretty decent recreation of that game.

>What is it?

This game is a swindler 'em up, based off of the Kaiji: ULTIMATE SURVIVOR Manga/Anime, Restricted: RPS is a strategic game of Rock Paper Scissors (????)
>How do I play?
Each player is dealt 3 STARS (Lives) and 2 of each card type (ROCK, PAPER, SCISSORS) (can be modified by server rules)
Players will then challenge one another choosing one card for the duel. The winner collects the stars, when you lose all of your stars you're out.
>Strategies
Players can offer to buy cards off of a specific type to monopolize and or trick opponents. You can work together with someone to win stars or betray them, its entirely up to you.
>Okay then, how do I play?

Mousepads

I need a new mouse pad, but can't find a suitable replacement that matches the autistic preference I've developed with the one I've had for the past 8-11 years now. It's an old promotional Crysis 1 mouse pad that I got in the collector's edition version of the game back in 2008 (I think that where's I got it, anyway), that has 4 layers with a coated polypropylene top and non stick rubber base. Things cracked and falling apart though, but any other mouse pad I've looked has a surface that is either too hard, fast, imprecise & slippery or too slow & muddy, with way too much friction. I tried the Corsair M600, but that shit was way too imprecise. Mouse was gliding all over the place and I had to make a conscious effort just to keep it locked it one location. Now I gotta return it Amazon and it's just a pain in the fucking ass. I'm thinking of trying out the Logitech G440 next, but based on some videos I watched, it's also way too glide prone as well. I wish I could just somehow rebuy the same mouse pad I have now, but I think I'd have better luck finding & buying a fucking Leprechaun instead. The closet I've come to finding something similar was spotting the SADES Lightning on Aliexpress coming directly from China. Even that doesn't seem ideal (also, it looks stupid as hell), which leaves me in a predicament of what to do. Even the act of buying a simple mouse pad makes me want to tear my god damn head open. I hate this world for more than you will ever know. How hard is to find a fucking decent polypropylene mouse pad. Ahhh, the pain in my head & chest. The stress and the bullshit. Just make it stop. Even the littlest things drain me entirely and turn me into a high strung wreck.

Wilfully Burying Yourself in Garbage When There's No Need To

I've always found it quite bizarre how drawn I am to play complete trash, over games that I know I'd probably enjoy & find a great deal of effective, long-term escapism in. As some examples, instead of diving into something like Homeworld Remastered, or Arcanum, or Vampire The Masquerade, or The Witcher 2/3, or Skyrim, or Fallout New Vegas, or the hundreds of available ROMs & ISOs of classic games, all of which I've never played before, I instead, mostly play short, mechanically repetitive, indie trash. Crap like ECHO, or AER: Memories of Old, or Downward, or Styx: Shards of Darkness, and it just drives me crazy. Why do I waste my life playing games that are far inferior to other, better games that I've never played before? It boggles my mind. It's like having a gourmet meal in front of you and choosing to eat from whatever's in the shit encrusted trash can out in the piss covered alleyway instead. If I had to give an answer as to why, I'd say laziness. On some level it makes perfect sense, given my overwhelmingly lazy sensibilities, to play short, inoffensive garbage that I can finish from anywhere to 1 to 10 hours, as opposed to long sweeping games that require many times that amount to get through. It's easier, in a bizarrely masochistic sense, to play a short shitty game, than a long good game. It just feels like too much effort to sit down and play a game that I know is considered a classic and is something I'll probably like. It's almost like the expectation it will be good wears me out on an emotional level and playing something more mediocre & dismissable instead seems far easier & more doable. I have to be in a very unique mood to play a good game, otherwise I just seem to stick to the same sort of bland porridge overflowing on Steam and elsewhere that I've listed above. Anyway, I don't know. I just wish I wasn't like this. I have such copious amounts of time to devote to gaming and the way I waste, piss & squander it away like this, never fails to bother me.

I still haven't even finished Stalker: SoC with the OGSE mod, despite enjoying it quite a bit. Granted I got a bit too bogged down with the side quests (never made it the Red Forest, for instance), and the constant running back between zones got pretty tedious (even with the addition of vehicles, despite how impractical they are given the terrain & enemy spawns). Instead I play shit like Attack of the Earthlings, or Solstice Chronicles MIA, or Tartarus, or some such other crap that I finish in the length of an afternoon. Why do I do this to myself? Why can't I just play good fucking games instead of mediocre ones, when the good ones are right fucking there? Why does it feel like too much effort? I just really don't get it. I guess the simple answer is that I'm too lazy to get invested in a long, complex game, or that, even if it's short, that its goodness will be to wearying to handle. At the end of the day, I just really hate myself, I hate how ass backwards my preferences are, and I wish I could slam my head into the wall until it somehow functioned properly.

Im planning to purchase a brand new prebuilt pc soon as I suck at tinkering with stuff and don’t want to bother learning to build one. Is now a good time to buy? Im not even sure how much money I am ready to sink into new hardware, but Id like it to last as long as possible ideally… Are there brands to avoid, standards soon to become obsolete, any basic trap for retards like me to be aware of?
PC I have right now is from 2011/12 and it was outdated even by that year’s standards, and I still use an old VGA screen from the mid 2000s, I guess I’ll have to ditch it and buy a new one?
I’d also like to know if shelling out some more money on top to get windows 10 is worth it? Again I reiterate I am tech illiterate and will rather spend more for convenience (like having the thing prebuilt) than waste time setting up linux or a pirated OS or something.

Just some random questions, some feedback to which would make me feel less alone.

The first big one being, how many games do you finish a year? This is the one I really want an answer to. Getting some answers/feedback to all the others provided below would also be appreciated.

How long is your backlog? Does it feel like a burden to you & do you chastise yourself for not clearing more games that you have on the back burner? Are you like me and is it an obsessive matter that you can't shake even if you want to? Do you find anhedonia makes finishing games or working through your backlog immensely difficult? Do you even bother with a backlog?

Do you feel as if time is running out, either with your current life situation, or with society at large, and you'll never get around to playing certain games you might really enjoy? Do you ever procrastinate playing these sorts of games, even if you know you'll probably enjoy them, merely because it feels like too much effort?

Do you still enjoy gaming? Do you bother to play a lot of different games, or do you just stick to a couple old reliables & don't bother with the rest? What about the classics? Have you played them all? Do you even want to play them all? If not, don't you feel like you're missing out? Is FOMO a concern when gaming for you? Is FOMO a concern in other forms of media, like films or anime or whatever else?

Do you ever have the need to prove yourself when gaming? Does a sense of pride or validation from straining yourself ever factor into how effectively you're able to enjoy yourself? Do you care about how well you do, even if it's in a non-competitive experience like a single player game? Are you like me and, at least in a subtle way, push yourself so you can meet your own standards and therefore feel better than other people because of how good you think you are?

Do you find your skills degrading as time goes on? Are there certain genres, or games, that you simply couldn't see yourself as playing anymore?

Did you ever waste a lot of time playing stuff you didn't enjoy? Do you still find yourself doing this? If so, do you feel as if that has partially hindered your ability to derive satisfaction from the past time? Do you feel anhedonia is inevitable? If so, do you feel as if anhedonia becomes a new normal & that it will forever hang over you like a dark rain cloud, even outside of gaming?

MP games that don't require fast reaction speed?

What I've tried:

League of Legends - love the champion variety and strategy. The gameplay is mostly slow, however, at the end of the match it's always 5 on 5 gangbang that starts and ends faster then I can even comprehend what the hell has just happened

Fistful of Frags - online FPS with very slow gameplay. Almost perfect for me, but needs more content IMO

Path of Exile - addictive at first, but after some time all that loot grinding gets tedious

Hearthstone - too slow (well, it's a card game)
