Gaming With Aspergers

IG: I’m Elizabeth, and I’ve been a serious gamer all my life. I remember having the BBC Micro, desperately trying to get Star Wars to work… it never did. I was young and my knowledge of computers was limited, to say the least.

Then I got an Atari. How I loved Smurf: Rescue in Gargamel’s Castle. I still recall dying repeatedly, every time I had to jump over the snakes, but persevering and overcoming the obstacle stayed with me much longer – my obsession with finishing games started then. (Culture, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Watch Dogs)

It's the same as gaming without it.
Except depending on how your Aspergers affects you, you'll either play more online or stick to singleplayer.
