My hobby sort - of stresses me , My feel good games are when I'm at the very top of the leaderboards preferably Sonic games. Maybe making combo content? Online gaming is really awful when you beat someone online they call me many names.

I have high respect for people who play on a competitive level like you, I would never have the patience and discipline to do that.

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! 

Those are all excelent games!
