The Best Distractions in RPGs | Obstructed Views

Obstructed Views: A lot of RPGs, in particular JRPGs, have a side dish that goes along with your main course of adventure. They’re unnecessary and don’t always add to the story, but they can incredibly fun and addicting. Whether it’s a card game, sport, or simple minigame, these distractions offer another chance to get lost in the game’s world. With the recent release of Bravely Default, I’ve been enjoying the simple smartphone-style rebuilding game built into the main story. Here’s a list of some of the best ways to put off that ‘saving the world’ thing. (3DS, Bravely Default, Final Fantasy IX, Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy VIII, Final Fantasy X, PS3, Retro, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Xbox)

I always get absorbed with the inevitable Casino levels in RPGs. Funny thing is, I'm not really interested in playing cards or going to a casino. But being able to fake-gamble (and win rare items) is always a fun way to pass the time. Gotta get that Porygon at the Game Corner!!!

Bowling in GTA IV.

I guess you can take it as a sarcasm.
