Sorry about your crummy covid shot feeling. I recently fell back into gaming and am looking at what games still have a spark for me.

I’m really enjoying AMR2 (Another Metroid Remake 2) and I figured out a way to make Halo Combat Evolved into a VR game. These two games are my feel good games, they make me feel great.

I decided I’ll try Symphony of the night next, and Half Life 2. I never played these, but on paper they fit what I like. I finally got Red Dead 2 to work on my phenom processor, so I will dabble in that as well.

That’s going to keep me busy for the summer! Happy gaming!

Thank you, I appreciate!

I've heard so many good things about AMR2, I think it really is a great game. How do you do that with Halo? That's interesting, I can't imagine. Symphony of the Night is awesome,  love it. A couple of months ago I was doing a little Castlevania marathon and SotN was one of the highlights. Right now I am playing the PS2 classic Castlevania Lament of Innocence haha!

I find that anything from my childhood hits the spot when it comes to "feel-good" games. Doesn't matter how bad the day is going. If I pop one of those games into a retro console, I'm instantly transported back to a better time. It's some of the best medicine there is.

That's so true! Retro gaming is somehow like travelling in a time machine, isn't it. And which games do you pop in?

It really is true!

For me, there's tons of games that I can turn to when I'm in need of some comfort, but usually I'll turn to something in the 8 and 16 bit category over something 3D, simply because they are easier to jump in and out of. Super Mario Bros. 3 is a good one. Another is Contra. Ninja Gaiden. Any of the first Mega Man's is always a sure bet. Sometimes, if I'm really in the mood, I'll even pop in SM64, OOT or the first Banjo... but that is a rarity. 

But anyway, that's my advice. Go with something from your youth. It's always good for what ails ya!
