What types of games are preferred?

I just need a way to relax and divert my mind from rehashing the past over and over, or obsess about the future.

Story driven games dont usually work for me because I'll be shouting at it saying stuff like :
"Poorly written!"
"Who was the idiot who wrote this?"
"That's stupid!"
"That's soooo stupid!"
...

That kinda ruins a game 😂

I like puzzle games, and some tower defense games like Gemcraft Labyrinth.
But those can also get my legs going.

It's funny, or not, how my upper body might be perfectly still and my face blank, while my legs are going wild.

I have problems with stories too, but in a slightly different way. I'll attempt to pay attention, but then once they start bringing a billion new characters in I get totally lost :D. I can't really understand most stories due to the amount of things you have to remember, so sometimes I wonder how people even play immersive games like that and keep track of what they need to do and who everyone is!

They have quest lists...
I've watched enough people playing them 😅
I usually watch those as if they were a TV series 😂 and usually, some part of the story peeves me to the point of skipping parts of it, ir fast-fowarding because some bits are so annoying.

I like consistency 😅

Yeah, I get this as well.

Typically when it comes to gaming, if there's going to be a focus on story in something I'm playing through, it's going to be short and to the point. And there cant be too much blathering on- I mean, "talking". I mean really, if the only way a story can manage to be told is for the characters to never shut up, it probably aint a very good story.

My favorite story-focused game up to this point is this short horror game named Umfend. It's like, maybe 2 hours long, I think it was. There's very little talking at all. It's one of the games that actually stuck with me though, usually most really dont, in terms of story/setting/theme/whatever. 2nd favorite is Mothered, which... yeah that one was a wild ride.

Actually most story-focused games that stick with me tend to be short horror games like that. And typically no cutscenes. So many games overdo that. Like, I'm here to play the freaking game, not watch a movie. Never could get into RPGs for exactly that reason. Too many cutscenes and characters that just keep blabbing on.

I've forgotten where I'm going with this. Was I going anywhere? Probably not.
 
Base building is my go to but in general I like open world 3rd person games.

Some favorites
Horizon Zero Dawn
Far Cry 3,4,5,6
Days Gone
Ark
Fallout 76

Currently playing
SoulMask (epic survival craft in early access on PC)
SpiderMan 2 (ps5)
Dying Light
 
Okay hey I've found something that made me think of this thread:

and also



I remembered you'd mentioned that you like just building stuff, and that's exactly what these are. The first one isnt out yet, but it's not too far off.
