Games that are boring to watch, but fun to play.

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Games that are boring to watch, but fun to play.

Personally, I only like watching my brother in-law play horror games. I quite love it actually. We spend hours some days. He says he can't play scary games like that on his own so I watch.

Every other genre though I find boring to just watch. I need to play.

According to my brother (who watched me playing wii when i was younger), Fire Emblem and Monster Hunter are boring to watch.



Playing: F1 2016 (PC), Uncharted: The Lost Legacy (PS4)
Watching: Hajime no Ippo, Attack on Titan (4th time)
Upcoming purchases in October:
-TBD

All JRPGs IMO.



IMO every single game ever.

Don't get why people would want to watch someone else play a game when they could be playing it themselves. Exception for games that aren't yet released though since people might be interested in seeing what it's like. But once is has been released it just seems silly to watch it rather than play yourself.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Any racing sim. They are slow and tedious to watch, but engaging to play, when you have to think about racing lines, braking, best time to overtake etc



RPG's in general. They relay on the person being heavily invested in the story, characters and overall plot. A person who has no knowledge of these things, in my opinion, would find it pretty boring.

Strategy games as well. Hearthstone is painful to watch (for me) but I love actually playing it.

Pretty much any turn based game.

A lot of people do not like to play games that much but like to watch other people play to see the story etc. My GF is a good example of liking to watch a certain game but not play it. She is not a prime example because she does enjoy playing games as well

yea, kinda the same as pretty much any real racing

it's funny, as I can spent hours just doing time trials and improving my lap times little by little, but I can't stand watching more than 10 minutes of real racing, although I know that those guys actually are super amazing
