Ever just plain get bored of every game you’ve been playing? I’ve recently hit a funk like that. My 360 isn’t cutting it, I don’t feel like playing NES, and Flash arcade games put me to sleep. I hate it when this happens, as I usually end up watching way too much TV in my downtime.
The solution? It varies. Usually I try to think of something I’d like to play, and then find a decent independent PC game in that genre. These independent titles often take more chances than a traditional game, and can give a really unique experience. Sometimes they fail horrible, but when they succeed, they’re awesome.
This time, I decided I haven’t played a decent old school RPG is ages. After much Googling rpg games and digging through the results I managed to find a game called Magic Stones (see the link for download). I have to say, it’s one of the more interesting games I’ve played in awhile.
It’s based on Celtic mythology, and is a weird hybrid between a role-playing game and a card game. It’s very interesting though, and for now I’m hooked.
If you’re ever in a similar situation, it might be worth a look.
