, an article at The New Gamer talking about comfort games
. These reliable, fun titles are the old favorites you consistently look to for amusement and solace after a bad gaming session, a bad day, a bad week. From the article, with the author's comfort games: "Mega Man 2 - This Capcom classic has been with me since I was a kid, and I know it like the back of my hand. I'm sure that, if blindfolded, I'd somehow intuitively be able to maneuver through the levels, but I'd much rather be able to view it in all of its 8-bit goodness and remind myself of the good times."
My current top five would have to be Super Mario World
, Half-Life 2
, World of Warcraft
, God of War
, and Civilization IV
. What are yours?
