Sometimes people just have bad days. Or hit bottom. Whatever the case, there are always a few titles I hit to make myself feel better when I’m ragin’ and having a crap day.
The following serve as good punching bags:
Left 4 Dead
I generally don’t enjoy L4D2 as much, so I always go back to the first one for some good old cold-blooded zombie slaying. Shouting/typing in CAPS LOCK whilst doing so is also a good combination for much needed relief.
In hindsight, this probably isn’t such a good idea because I really hate losing. Especially in Tekken. But when some furious pounding of opponents is in order I am more then happy to deliver. And I often do.
Team Fortress 2
I only hit TF2 when my clan mates are on because again, I hate losing, and losing when angry only leads to more intense anger. Otherwise I’m game. Blowing things up, steam rolling through opponents, griefing like idiots – sounds like my kinda night. If you are unfamiliar with the concept of TF2 griefing, I highly recommend checking out some videos from Team Roomba.
Plants VS Zombies – Beghouled Minigame
Look, I don’t need to justify myself to anyone!
But I do find that watering one’s zen garden helps one to find inner peace and tranquility…
