@rtjhnstn oh man, I think I found out about that game on Meh, back when I first joined! Played the heck out of it for several weeks, then felt like I sort of “finished” the game after I ascended 5+ times. Should I have kept playing?
@LaserEyes I was nuts about Stardew Valley. I played it non-stop for about 6 weeks. Once I felt bored enough work on my friendships with the gross villagers (sorry! some of them are just dumb as hell – looking at you, Sebastian) I decided it was time to stop playing.
Any Niantic players about? We’ve been playing Ingress since 2013, and I’ve gotten Dad into Pokemon Go as well. So far it’s just me on Wizards Unite. I have a few other games, but I rarely launch them on my phone. I’ve used the Falling Sand app to kill some time when I have a short wait, though.
@jsfs I just started playing Wizards Unite. I played Ingress for years but got bored. Really hard to get to the top few levels. I’m enjoying being forced out of the house every day, though the weather right now is insane, so I’ve mostly been playing from my living room.
I used to play Angry Birds a lot. I think I have most of the versions on my phone. Since they have gotten progressively worse, in my opinion, I don’t play much and usually go back to the original versions when I do. I also played Fruit Ninja a lot, but now only occasionally play in Zen mode. I like the Quell series and found it somewhat relaxing as well as challenging, but since I finished them all I haven’t played for a while.
-Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp (every day)
-Quick Logic Puzzles (try to remember to play the free one every day)
-Wheel of Fortune (lately it’s been every day but there was a really long spell where I didn’t play at all)
@msklzannie Wheel of Fortune is an excellent game—but I’m currently on a hiatus from it. I go through runs where I get addicted to it, then realize how much time it’s consuming and stop playing altogether for a few a months. I’m currently in the “no play” phase of that cycle.
@narfcake I finally had to give up on my Lumia 950. My wife still uses hers but may jump to Android soon like me. I stuck with Nokia tho. I have a Nokia 7.1. I like it. As far as Windows phone games we both liked Ilomilo.
word games. i like the blue ox games - 7 little words, red herring, tiny little crosswords, and monkey wrench. i have moxie too but i don’t play it that often. i use them to relax and occupy my mind so i need the games i play to be able to be silent as well as not keep score or time, and to be solo. the more minimal design the better too - not really a fan of the recent 7 little words redesign or the full screen video ads, but it’s free, so.
i also have limbo and fruit ninja on my phone but i rarely play them - i’m not good at touchscreen anything still and i never learned to play “regular” video games so my understanding and coordination is pretty garbage and i get frustrated/bored pretty early on.
I play idiotic dopamine games. The kind that want to show you ads – Bricks n Balls, for example. On vacation, I don’t feel any urge to play them. Only when work is on, and there is no natural satisfaction of any kind available, then they start looking attractive.
