Owning a few casual video games, the kind you can go back to when the mood strikes you, are great for those days when you feel like playing a game that doesn’t require more than an hour of your time. It doesn’t involve full concentration and there aren’t any levels or boss fights you need to complete. Games like Animal Crossing: New Leaf and Nintendogs are the type of games where the only tasks you have to do is either keep your town in order or your pet well-groomed and fed. These games are seemingly easy to play, but it does come with its own set of problems.
One of the biggest problems you don’t anticipate when you are slowly taking stock of the games you’re trying to complete in your backlog is where you go next from the last point you saved. The problem is only made worse when you haven’t touched the game in about 4 or 5 years.
Every one needs a vacation. Too much work and no play can eventually wear you down physically and mentally. You have your staycations where you stay around your area and do absolutely nothing, or enjoy what makes your neighborhood or city particularly great. Or you have the kind of vacations where you get away from everything you know and immerse yourself in a completely different place.
