With my right hand currently incapacitated I need some games to play while recovering. Preferably games that are better while high on a variety of painkillers.

Earthbound.

visual novels? and you can speak japanese so you probably have a better selection than the rest of us

Any RTS or point-and-click adventure game. I can recommend Supreme Commander and Beneath a Steel Sky.

EDIT: Oh, and of course turn-based strategy games like Civilization.

Turn based RPGs or strategy games like final fantasies, fire emblems, pokemans.

A) Anything you can play solely with a mouse. Get used to using one with your left hand!

B) Game Boy/Game Boy Advance emulator. I once managed to play Metroid Fusion with one hand on a keyboard, though I don't remember precisely how and I didn't beat it that way.

C) Turn based games especially.

D)

Audiosurf

If I weren't at work I'd link you to Stroker, but unfortunately I'm not going to risk that for a bad joke. You'll just have to place one here yourself.

I would also recommend Pokemon.

Also you could find a good chess website or something of that nature.

Tower defense games where you don't need to place items.

Ant Buster

Civilization

Fire Emblem.

Also a bunch of the GBA Pokemon games had the option to turn on L = A, so you only needed to use the left side of the GBA and nothing else.

Wasn't DOA Beach Volleyball designed to b done one handed so the other hand can, well, play with the pole.

Crusader Kings 2

Though you'd mostly use the non gaming hand to give the game a huge, fat middle finger anytime the neighbouring Lords get all uppity.

When you play a lot of porn games, playing with one hand becomes an instinct. But seriously, play more turn-based games, like XCOM or something.

Grim Fandango that shit.

Oh and excuse my morbid curiosity but how did you crush it? (if you don't mind me asking)

This is surprisingly not the first time a thread like this has been made. At least this one isn't depressing.

The Internet, I guess? That's like a game. Plenty of mobile games can be played mono-a-mano, too.

Getting those installed usually takes two hands, in my experience.

Turn based strategy, maybe an older RPG. Basically, anything that you can take your sweet time doing. Also, you can get really good at strategy games while on drugs, and then you'll be a master when you're actually coherent. That's how it works, right?

Unless you fucked up and made a mistake.

I was running for the bus and the driver didn't see me so the door shut on my hand.

Thanks for all the suggestions, guys.

#26 Posted by MariachiMacabre (7099 posts) -

Yeah Fire Emblem is a good option.

Blood Bowl.

You should have said Real Life Stroker.

@video_game_king: Thats why you use a GBA SP so your thumb can easily reach across the system.

Crap, I forgot about Super Hexagon. On a PC, with the arrow keys. I guess you could also use a tablet and two fingers. Or one finger and one fist, or whatever your other hand is like right now. And then add drugs.

#33 Posted by rubberluffy (475 posts) -

The Suikoden series has the usual face button controls but L1, L2 and Select also work at Confirm, Cancel and Menu, so you play it with just your left hand.

#34 Edited by JJOR64 (19065 posts) -

Any turn based game really. How about Pokemon?

#35 Posted by Subjugation (4740 posts) -

I recommend FTL personally.

Also, I am just tripping balls or are the forums not updating the "last post" time on threads properly? Says 2 hours ago on almost every thread for me.
