best games to play when your ill??? any, what ever you want to play, pointless article
dude, youre on N4G, What'd you expect?
very true, at least it's a change from those kinect/move articles (looks on front page) oh never mind ¬_¬
Russian Roulette. That'll clear your sinuses.
Lol. My thoughts exactly. And not only that but he pick (mostly) PS3 exclusives.
the take your medicine and sleep game.
If you're ill, video games aren't likely to help.
I'm ill at the moment and I sure as hell don't want to play any games just want to sleep and what bad daytime tv
What illness you got?
food poisoning hoping it clears soon
Had that about a year ago and I agree, playing video games was not at the top of my mind. Best of luck to you mate, hope you feel better soon.
Hope you feel better soon, man.
Medicine, lots of liquids, and laying in bed watching reruns of Family Guy. Video games takes a break.
I remember playing Chuck Rock on the Megadrive as a kid once when I was really ill, hated the game after that, it reminded me of been really ill.
one of those wii / DS trauma center games! at least if the doctors mess up your operation you can have a go yourself, assuming your illness gets to that stage.
Demons Souls, thats what i played last month when i was VERY ill (maybe not VERY ill, just ill)
Oooh, good suggestion actually.
Wow. At first I thought "Why would you play a game where you're in the worst situation ever and everything's trying to kill you?" Then I realized that you'd be looking at someone that had it worse than you! Add the addictive gameplay and you've got a winner. Stage 5-2 might not be for anyone with a stomach bug, however...
Command and Conquer Red Alert 2 preferably. Being able to decide the fate of thousands even whilst being ill, add in some maniacal sore throat/blocked nose laughs and you'll be better in not time. Stay away from Theme Hospital though... Exploding heads, people chucking up etc.
Oh well, watching Jeremy Kyle and Come Dine With Me doesn't make me feel better when i'm sick, in fact, when I'm fine it MAKES me sick! For all who don't know what these shows are, they are the usual "day time shite tv" that's always on when you're sick and have nothing else to do here in the UK/Ireland.
You know you'd play Jeremy Kyle: THE GAME, or Come Dine With Me: THE GAME, right? I would.
When my friend Katie died, I played Kingdom Hearts for 48 hours straight. It's the only example I have apart from playing Yoshi's Island when I had my tonsils out. @benandiol - Lol. Epic movie choice!
I think any game is a perfect game to play when ill that is if you have the energy to do so. Otherwise resting is best.
Who plays game when they're sick? I watch t.v and movies like 'Party Monster' :P
Gamers don't get sick. They get more time to game.
I like that motto.
I hate when you're so nauseated from illness/medicine that you can't even enjoy your day(s) off with a little gaming.
I want to play games that get me in a good mood when I'm sick. I also don't want to strain my neck to watch a TV for hours on end if I'm lounged out on a couch. Therefore, I'd say the only console games I'd play are the manic-depressive combination of We Love Katamari (or Katamari Forever) and Demon's Souls (thanks, Hellsvacancy - see above for why). After that, it's all handheld. DQ IX, the ridiculously-addictive and sunny Pokemon series, and Suikoden on the PSP! If only they released Suiko II... I don't agree with the writer about FFXIII. This person obviously didn't play the game enough - say what you will about the overall quality of the game, but it involves a giant amount of team-dynamics thought on-the-fly once you have your teams together and you're presented with some real challenges. It's a game I'd stay far away from when I'm sick.
