Got my 5 year old son a Nintendo Switch for xmas. Doing great with Kart and Smash.

My mother in law got him Lego Avengers. He can’t read that well yet and it is fucking impossible. It is the bane of my existence. Bc grammy got it he’s really attached to it and won’t let us return it.

Today he accidentally dropped his controller into the wall across the room.

Anybody find that playing complex games is actually much more complicated than years ago? like playing word heavy games and complex games like Crusader Kings and the likes? like the brain fog and the ability to learn and digest information is just on much lower levels? It sucks as I used to learn such games with ease. I fucking need Ritalin in order to play video games.

One problem is that I usually buy games on Steam via download, so I don't get that nice manual. I end up having to learn things through osmosis, or eventually just reading the online version. But it seemed easier, or at least more enjoyable, reading the printed ones.

I buy games on steam exclusively too. I just usually watch a bit of playthrough of that game to figure things out a bit faster.

I think a lot of games are pretty much skipping a tutorial mode, or the one they do have kind of sucks, because they figure people will do it online. I do agree that it seems harder to learn most games, I really think that's the primary reason. Games with a strong tutorial -- like Dying Light, for example, were pretty easy to learn.

Well yeah? you think?
I wasted like 2 hours trying to pass that yellow platform/overpass in the tutorial through the inside of it! I tried jumping from ledge to ledge while crouching at the same time to avoid the top beam, instead of just getting on top of it and hit shift to run. I died so many times..:(
After that you could call me Parkour king.
