Playing Video Games in Hospital: A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Likely Do Again

“I have now seen coloured medical scrubs and tiled walls a very sterile white. I have seen an all-linoleum floor with pine furniture. We’ve all been to a hospital at some point in our lives - if you haven’t already, then good for you. Sometimes, you’re there to visit friends or family, and other times it’s just to get a blood test. Whatever the circumstance, the chances are, you’ve got some waiting to do before that inevitable colonoscopy. Here, I’m discussing some video games that are perfect to play whilst waiting around in those candy-striped waiting rooms.”

I absolutely love this game... I could play it today and still have as much fun as the first time!

Pro tip: when playing Plague Inc, give your virus a rude name for 10x more fun.

I've played my VITA many of times while waiting at a hospital.

Durden lives!

I use to play PSP a whole lot, but never brought a VITA. It seemed to lack something in a handheld, but I could never put my finger on what it was...

Durden lives?

I put tens of hours in on my VITA over the past couple years at the hospital. I put hours into AC Liberation, Sly Cooper TiT, Killzone Mercenary, Dragons Crown, Soul Sac, Sine Mora, Luftrausers, and more.

What exactly is the VITA lacking? It has a dramatically better screen, significantly more processing power, and a more adult oriented lineup than the DS. I just don't understand wanting to play on a weak and outdated handheld unless you are a huge fan of Pokemon or animal crossing. I just prefer Uncharted, KZ, Gravity Rush, LBP, Super Stardust, Freedom Wars ect.

Never played my Vita at the hospital. But, can't say it gets any better than GTA on the PSP at the DMV.
