Feeling terrible today. I've spent the day at home valiantly trying—but mostly failing—to do some work. Now all I want to do this evening is snuggle up in something warm and play a game.
For me, the ideal comfort game is one that isn't terribly fast-paced (so no racing games or shooters), won't tax the brain too heavily (sorry puzzle games) and doesn't require me to learn anything new (so we're talking a traditional genre piece here). I picked up Level 5's PS2 RPG Rogue Galaxy on a weekend trip to Melbourne, so I'm thinking it should do the trick nicely.
What do you look for in a comfort game?
Oh, and for those who submitted a question yesterday for Tekken 6 director Katsuhiro Harada and are now fretting I was unable to do the interview, you can relax. My colleague Elly printed out your queries and attended in my place. We'll have those answers for you soon.
