I’m an impatient video game player. I don’t have the patience to figure out puzzles or work through mazes. If I’m playing an action game where you have to defeat a "boss" to continue further, I’ll quit if it becomes difficult or repetitive. I often resort to FAQs for games; I care for seeing the story and action played out than trying to figure it out. As a result, I tend to play games that are considered simple and easy like racing car games.
I bought the following this morning:
- R-Type Final: this is a 2-D side-scrolling space ship game, where you control a space ship and blast everything that gets in your way. All its reviews are good. Here’s an example.
- Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time: I got this used. It’s gotten rave reviews and I played it briefly on my laptop. It seemed easy to play and it looks cool, so what the hell.
