Everyone has something that helps them unwind at the end of a long day. Whether its gardening, shooting some hoops, or basket weaving...some activities are just relaxing to certain people. For many of us though, it's video games. What can be more satisfying that killing a few zombies and pretending they're those bastards known as 'customers'...you know... the ones that 'are always right'?
My favorite stress relief video game has been the same for pretty much as long as it's been released. Diablo 2 is probably the best game for stress relief in my book. It's a simple format, so there's little thought involved, I can pretty much stop whenever I really feel like it (no pesky save crystals or quest time-outs to worry about), and best of all: I get to kill shit! I can totally just take my frustration at the world out on Fallen Ones and Dark Lords with no consequence other than a few thousand gold in my stash and a couple flawed emeralds. Plus I can either play solo or invite a few friends to join in the fray if I'm feeling like company. It doesn't get much better than that.
Anyway. Here's my question for you: What is your ultimate stress relief video game? I wanna know! read
