Here’s A Flowchart Showing You Which Game To Play Next

Here’s A Flowchart Showing You Which Game To Play Next

Most of us have a bunch of video games in our collection that we’ve never got around to playing. In gaming circles, this is known as the ‘pile of shame’. If you can’t decide which title to pick next, this 90-game flowchart will help you to reach the right decision.

For time-poor gamers, choosing which game to play from your shame pile can be surprisingly tough — do you plump for something fun and mindless or commit to a complex, story-driven RPG? Do you tackle an old classic you’ve always wanted to finish, or plump for something fresher?

The infographic below comes from online gaming site Silver Oak Casino (that’s the other type of gaming, natch.) It asks a series of questions to help you choose the video game that best suits your current needs. While some of the included titles are a little baffling (who has time for DuckTales?) the list is pretty solid overall. Looks like I’ll be spending the long weekend with Prince Of Persia: Sands Of Time.

Naturally, you can also use the flowchart to work out which video game you should buy next. Most of these titles (and the consoles they run on) can be found pretty cheap on eBay.

  • Seen this flow chart before, and my big complaint is that “Having average reflexes” leads to Monkey Ball and Devil May Cry 3. Yeaaaaaaah, no.

      • Is DMC3 the one with Hell or Hell mode? Cause that is legitimately ridiculous in terms of difficulty, makes Dark Souls look benign by comparison.

  • So, if I want to play Zelda games I don’t want puzzles? And I don’t want to roleplay?

    Huh, apparently I have been playing Zelda games wrong for years.
